During the upcoming months the management team will be conducting routine community inspections on all properties bi-weekly with citations noted every 30 days. An initial courtesy letter will be sent giving homeowners 30 days to cure the violation. With that being said, all deed restriction violations that are spotted will be cited and residents will be notified via postal mail and via email, if you have provided this information to the management team through your Sterling account. The major focus for residents to take note of will be mold and mildew or discoloration on the hard sidings on your home, vegetable vines growing on the home or over the fence lines seen to the public view, repainting the home and any exterior surfaces attached to the home and wrought iron fences on properties. Please keep in mind that mowing and removing weeds are a constant issue after rains so please have these addressed along with maintaining dead vegetation in the front and back yard properties. Also as a reminder, trash cans must be placed out of public view within garages or behind wooden backyard fences on non-trash pickup days.
ATTENTION ALL RESIDENTS!
The City of Sugar Land has some important information they would like to share with the residents in regards to the mosquitos and the West Nile virus that is affecting Texus currently. If you would like more information in regards to this issue, please click the link below.
Conversion of CenterPoint street lights
At the beginning of the year, CenterPoint notified the City of their standardization of the LED lamp fixture for all new street lights as well as the conversion of existing lamps. To ensure a smooth transition to minimize different lighting types, the City worked with CenterPoint on an agreement for deployment over the next year. This process will begin to take place in July, in the residential areas. Once the residential conversions are complete, CenterPoint will begin converting the lights on the larger thoroughfares, estimated to start in late August or September. Once all of the cobra head fixtures are replaced, CenterPoint will begin converting the decorative street lights.
Please note this conversion is only for CenterPoint owned street lights, and does not affect private lighting system within the City.

The wildflowers in the natural areas around the Main Lake have begun to grow and many bluebonnets can be seen beginning to bloom early due to our spring like weather. Since our winter has been relatively warm except for two very cold nights in December all the natural areas were cut back in January and are now being allowed to grow over the next 5 or 6 months so the various wildflowers can bloom. During this time the natural areas will only be trimmed as needed but not cut back again until all of the blooms have played out during to the heat of the summer. At that time we will cut back the natural areas and keep them mowed through the fall and winter months. These areas however do remain natural in that they are mowed taller and have more weeds than the Bermuda lawn around them since no herbicides are used to control weed growth since it would also eliminate any wildflowers.
Telfair Community Association does not allow garage sales on individual properties and does not hold community garage sales for the public.

Please park all cars in your driveway or garage. Thank you for your help in keeping the community beautiful.
Trash Cans/Yard Clippings/Trash Bags/Tree Trimmings
Telfair Residents: Please do not place your trash cans or trash bags at the curb before the day of pickup. Your community trash days are Tuesday & Friday. Also, if you have a lawn service, please advise them they need to take all yard clippings with them when they service your yard or put them behind your fence until Thursday evenings after 6PM for Friday pick up.

We inspect the community on a regular basis and if any of these above items are noticed, you will be cited as this is a violation of your communities deed restrictions. Also, trash cans cannot be stored in public view, as this is also a violation of your deed restrictions. Trashcans must be stored behind fences or in your garage. If they can be seen from the street, you are in violation of the deed restrictions. Thank you for your help in keeping your community beautiful.
