GET ACC APPROVAL FOR PROJECTS

Just a reminder to those of you who may be planning home improvement projects this summer.

In an effort to provide and protect each individual homeowner’s rights and values, it is required that any homeowner or group of homeowners considering improvements (examples: exterior painting, patio covers, outside buildings, fences, decks, basketball goal, etc.) of their deeded property other than landscaping, submit a Request for Home Improvement Approval to the Architectural Control Committee for approval of the Homeowner’s Association prior to initiating work on planned improvements. If any change is made that has not been approved, the committee has the right to ask the homeowner to remove the improvement from the property.

You may log onto www.barringtonplace.net, go to the “Committees” page and print out a form. You may also drop by MASC Austin Properties, Inc., 945 Eldridge Road, and pick up a copy.



SCOOP THE POOP

Help stop pointless poo-llution!You can make a difference! Besides being unpleasant to the nose and eyes, pet waste is an environmental pollutant that can seriously harm Texas waterways. A quick rain shower is all it takes to transfer dog droppings from the ground and into our streams, lakes, rivers, and ultimately, the Galveston Bay. Pet waste carries bacteria, viruses, and parasites that threaten the health of humans and wildlife. By scooping the poop you are removing harmful nutrients and bacteria from local waterways, keeping our citizens healthy and our yards and shoes clean.

When left behind, pet waste on sidewalks, streets, or yards can be carried by rainwater through the storm sewer system directly into our local water bodies without any treatment. Pet waste is a major contributor of bacteria and pollution to the detriment of our water quality.

What can you do to limit your impact?

  • Always pick up pet waste.
  • Carry disposable bags on your walk.
  • Throw away pet waste or flush it down the toilet.
  • Encourage others to pick up pet waste. Take the pledge to “scoop the poop” and do your part to reclaim the Bay:

  • I pledge to always clean up after my pet, even in my own yard.
  • I pledge to educate others about the importance of cleaning up after their pets.
  • I pledge to always carry extra doggy bags when I’m with my pet.

    BASIC SAFETY TIPS ABOUT FLOODING

    Flooding is a temporary overflowing of water onto land that is normally dry. Flooding may happen with only a few inches of water, or it may cover a house to the rooftop. There are many possible causes of floods including heavy rain, coastal storms and storm surge, waterway overflow from being blocked with debris or overflow of levees, dams, or waste water systems. Flooding can occur slowly over many days or happen very quickly with little or no warning, called flash floods.

    Flooding can happen in any U.S. state or territory. It is particularly important to be prepared for flooding if you live in a low-lying area near a body of water, such as near a river, stream, or culvert; along a coast; or downstream from a dam or levee.

    Basic Safety Tips

  • Turn Around, Don’t Drown!®
  • Avoid walking or driving through flood waters.
  • Do not drive over bridges that are over fast-moving floodwaters. Floodwaters can scour foundation material from around the footings and make the bridge unstable.
  • Just 6 inches of moving water can knock you down, and one foot of moving water can sweep your vehicle away.
  • If there is a chance of flash flooding, move immediately to higher ground.
  • If floodwaters rise around your car but the water is not moving, abandon the car and move to higher ground. Do not leave the car and enter moving water.
  • Avoid camping or parking along streams, rivers, and creeks during heavy rainfall. These areas can flood quickly and with little warning.

    When it is not flooding: Make a flood plan.

  • Know your flood risk.
  • Familiarize yourself with local emergency plans. Know where to go and how to get there should you need to get to higher ground, the highest level of a building, or to evacuate.
  • Make a flood emergency plan for the relevant type/s of local flood risk with plans such as evacuation, shelter, locations for high ground.
  • Build or restock your emergency preparedness kit, including a minimum of 3 days of food and water, flashlight, batteries, cash, and first aid supplies.
  • Consider buying flood insurance.
  • Stay tuned to your phone alerts, TV, or radio for weather updates, emergency instructions, or evacuation orders.
