District Needs Resident Agreements To Replace Fence

On May 4, 2020, Cypress Mill Municipal Utility District No. 1 (the “District”) mailed a “Property and Maintenance Area Property Usage Agreement” to each property owner on Cypresswood Drive and Cypress Mill Place Boulevard—a total of 67. Each property owner MUST sign, get notarized, and return their agreement in order for the District and HOA to be able to replace the fence along their back property line with the new concrete fence. Here are the results so far:

0%
Cypresswood Drive South
0%
Cypresswood Drive North
0%
Cypress Chase

If any property owner has questions about the agreement, please contact Ronnie Koehn at rkoehn@koehnengineers.comor (713) 682-2527.

The agreements are required to allow the District and the Cypress Mill Homeowners Association (the “HOA”) to replace the existing fence on Cypresswood Drive and Cypress Mill Place Boulevard with a uniform “rock style” fence made out of pre-cast concrete and averaging approximately seven feet high. The agreements are individualized with each property owner’s name and the legal description of the property.

Disposing Wipes in the Toilet Can Cause Drain Pipe Clogs and Cost You Money

Cypress Hill MUD urges you to dispose of wipes in the trash and not in the toilet.

Disposable wipes — used for changing diapers, personal hygiene, housecleaning, and more — cause major problems when flushed down toilets. Because they don’t break down the way toilet paper does, these wipes clog homeowner and MUD sewer pipes, put stress on the MUD’s wastewater collection and treatment equipment, and cause the MUD to spend thousands on premature equipment repair and replacement. Wipes snag on any imperfection in sewer pipes, catch passing debris and grease, and create a “ball” that will grow to plug the pipe. They also get drawn into sewer-line and wastewater treatment plant pumps and clog and damage them. The MUD must manually clear out pumps or remove clogs.

Although many brands of disposable wipes are labeled “flushable,” don’t flush them! The clogs and backups they cause may result in expensive plumbing bills for your home, or increased wastewater fees.

DISTRICT ANNOUNCES NEW BEAUTIFICATION PROJECTS

Cypress Hill Municipal Utility District No. 1 (the “District”) has committed funds to three additional beautification projects in the District:

Sydney Harbour Perimeter Fence Project

  • The District has partnered with the Sydney Harbour Homeowners Association to repair the brick columns on the perimeter fencing along Cypress-Rosehill and Huffmeister. The Sydney Harbour HOA has signed a contract with Hardscape, Inc. to make the repairs. The District will provide 90% of the construction cost. The project is underway. The HOA maintains the fence.

Cypress Ridge Perimeter Fence Along Huffmeister

  • The District has partnered with the Cypress Ridge Homeowners Association to install 520 linear feet of perimeter fencing along Huffmeister Road which is in need of replacement. The replacement fence will be a new six foot high rock style precast concrete fence. The Cypress Ridge HOA has signed a contract with Fencecrete to construct the fence. The District will provide 90% of the construction cost and construction administration. The project is ready to begin but has been suspended due to COVID-19 concerns. After completion, the HOA will maintain the fence.

Cypress Mill Perimeter Fence Along Cypresswood Drive and Cypress Mill Place

  • The District has partnered with Cypress Mill Homeowners Association to replace the wood fence on Cypresswood Drive and Cypress Mill Place Boulevard with a uniform “rock style” fence made out of pre-cast concrete and averaging approximately seven feet high. The District will provide 90% of the cost of the project and the HOA will pay 10% and take over maintenance once the project is complete. the District’s landscape architect is proceeding with design.
    This project will require obtaining signed and notarized agreements from all affected property owners. The District is preparing these agreements and the HOA has agreed to lead an effort to get them back from homeowners. A timeline for this project has not been established but will depend, in large part, on how quickly the homeowner agreements can be obtained.

The District’s main responsibility is providing water, sewer and drainage facilities to the land within its boundaries; however, it has the power to provide parks, landscaping, parkways, greenbelts, sidewalks, trails, public right-of-way beautification projects and recreational equipment to residents, subject to numerous legal constraints. Previously it provided funding for beautification projects along Cypress-Rosehill, Skinner and Fenske Roads and behind the commercial area in Cypress Mill.
