NEWS AND UPDATES

Family Movie Night in Sugar Mill Friday August 16th at 8 PM
No need to take the family to Walley World this summer, as we bring Wonder Park to Sugar Mill.  It’s our late summer movie night for Sugar Mill residents, and it happens Friday August 16th beginning at 8 PM at the Lake Center Pool.  Complimentary drinks and snacks while you enjoy this family-friendly flick.  Come early for a swim, and don’t forget to bring your pool tags.  PS, we are always looking for folks like you to help with set up and break down.  Touch base with Chris Davis at 713-249-4259 if you’d like to join the pool entertainment crew.  


We Need To Talk--
Code Inspector Gilbert Cipriano from the City of Sugar Land called regarding rodents ( rats, possums, mice etc) in our neighborhood ,according to a few of our neighbors. He wanted to share this information with the community so that the rodent issue can possibly be taken care of or limited . According to Mr. Cipriano, animals will come to a property for one of three reasons: food, water or shelter. The residents needs to eliminate these from their yard. For example – trimming tree branches 12 feet from the roof line, picking up all fallen fruit if there are fruit trees, not feeding pets outside and leaving food in bowls, not allowing outside shelters with gaps under decks, sheds, appliances, junk piles, old fences and walls. Keeping the property, including alleys and yards, clean and trash-free. He stated that there is a product called Natures Defense Organic Animal Repellent. You may have to order it online. It is a granule that is put down and then needs to be re-applied after it rains or 2 weeks after it is first applied. Sometimes it may take more than one application around the perimeter of the yard. Again, just a heads up. Sugar Mill HOA.


Got Pool Tags?

Please put your tags in an envelope and drop them on the front porch table at 906 Mill Run Drive. We will quickly process them and let you know when they are ready. Enjoy the holiday, and be safe.

Sugar Mill Spring Update.  It’s Time to Get Outdoors
What a beautiful time of the year here in Sugar Mill.  And with the new season comes a couple of thoughts.  Now is the time to take a good look at your home and your yard and take advantage of the moderate temperatures to catch up on those chores that come with home ownership.  I know my home is once again due for the annual power wash, how about yours?  With the trees and shrubs in a growth mode, take a few moments to tend to their health and beauty.  Brown spots in your lawn, maybe it’s time to head to the nursery for a few pieces of sod.  This weekend take a few minutes to go outside and see what you can do to brighten up your residence and our neighborhood.

With our annual board meeting behind us, we wanted to catch you up on a few items.  Here’s a question.  If we could save money and put those dollars back into our neighborhood, would that be a good thing?  And the answer is, yes.  Right now, we are exploring the opportunity to become a tax exempt HOA.  There are many other communities that have taken that step and the benefits are broad.  As I said, we are exploring that option right now with our tax advisor.  The process can take up to 6 months to become a reality.  In the meantime, we are being conservative in the projects that need attention, based on the upside benefit of tax savings down the road.  Bear with us, as we will keep you updated on the progress.

Thanks again to those who attended our annual meeting.  Thanks to those who have transitioned to our more efficient portal for neighborhood news and business. Change is sometimes tough, but change gives us new opportunities to do things better, and that’s what we are experiencing here in Sugar Mill.  The transition continues and we appreciate your input and your support.
