SAFETY & SECURITY REMINDER
Dogs must be kept under control at all times within The Forest-- either on a leash or behind a fence. We continue getting reports about lost dogs. The restriction is both a neighborhood rule and a City of Friendswood ordinance. Help us to remind your neighbors about these important courtesies -- working together we can maintain the safety and security of The Forest.
HIKE AND BIKE TRAILS -- TO ENJOY AND RESPECT
The Forest of Friendswood would like to remind everyone that the Hike and Bike trails are for everyone to enjoy, relax and have fun with family, friends and neighbors!! However, there has been an increase in the usage of motorized vehicles on the paths. Please remember that motorized vehicles are not permitted--this includes golf carts! If it's not completely self-propelled then it's not allowed. The trails were not built to sustain the constant wear & tear as well as the weight of golf carts & recreational vehicles. Thank you ~
***DEED RESTRICTION VOTING IS CLOSED***
-- Deed Restriction Changes Online Voting--NOW CLOSED
In March 2015 you received in the mail the Board's proposed changes to our Deed Restrictions. VOTING IS NOW CLOSED. Thanks for Voting!!! Unfortunately, NONE of the proposed changes to the Deed Restrictions passed because not enough Members voted. Please see our Annual Meeting Presentation to get detailed election results.
If you would like to help with the new election being planned, please contact HCMS at KarenL@houcomm.com or the Board at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks!
MOTORIZED VEHICLES PROHIBITED ON HIKE & BIKE TRAILS
The HoA continues to struggle with noise, damage, and risk resulting from motorized vehicles on our Hike & Bike Trails. Please note this activity is prohibited for all types of motorized vehicles. The expense of repairing damage to our trails is borne by everyone.
For any type of home improvement work it is important to understand the process all FoF homeowners are subject to. Prior to submitting a request through the FOF ACC Committee, please obtain your building permits first through the city of Friendswood. Many of you will be applying for home improvements you plan to make over the next several months.
Please note in addition to the required homeowner’s association’s approval/application that is mandatory, the City of Friendswood also requires you obtain a building permit. The following are examples (not limited to) that require a city building permit: decks/ patio covers/ driveway extensions/ pools/ spas/outdoor summer kitchens/home additions/electrical, plumbing & mechanical work etc.
For more information please contact the Friendswood Building Permit Office: 281.996.3201 or click here for more information.
Please do not make your neighbors look at your trash for a week, including GRASS CLIPPINGS AND SHRUB AND TREE TRIMMINGS left curbside by your personal landscapers. Please respect the appearance of our neighborhood and value of our property by placing trash for pickup curbside the morning of pickup. The Forest of Friendswood receives garbage pickup two days each week- Monday and Thursday. Monday is the day each week for recycling, green waste, and heavy trash pickup. If items are not picked-up, store them out of sight until the correct pickup day. Thank you!
