With the expected severe weather in our area, the Greatwood Districts and Fort Bend County Levee Improvement District No. 11 (“LID 11”) would like to update you regarding the current status, as well as steps being taken to protect our community. Our Emergency Preparedness Committee has met, our emergency signs are ready to be posted if needed, our emergency radio system is ready to be activated if needed, and LID 11’s new emergency operations building by the golf maintenance barn is ready to be used by our operators during emergencies.
The Brazos River water levels actually are lower than they were during the recent high water event over Memorial Day weekend. Therefore, the River will be able to hold significantly more water than before. It is important to note that during the last high water event, the levee still had six to ten feet of freeboard available. (Freeboard is basically the number of feet above the river level of protection that our levee has.) Also, our flap gates in the drainage ditch are currently operating as a gravity flow system and FBL 11 is not having to use our pumps because it is not necessary. FBL 11’s operator is currently, and will continue to, monitor the situation and act as appropriate. Current water levels and additional information regarding the Brazos River can be obtained at http://www.fbcoem.org.
The Greatwood Districts operator is currently and will continue to monitor the water and wastewater treatment plants to ensure they are functioning properly. Also, should there be a power outage, the Greatwood Districts have emergency generators to operate our water and sewer systems. These generators were recently topped off with fuel, are regularly tested and maintenanced, and are ready for action if needed.

We are hoping that this will be a good way to keep our residents current on anything that can’t wait for the newsletter.
I am now writing about the consequences if a deed restriction violation is ignored. Should you ignore your notices, your account will be turned over to the attorney for legal action. If you have a violation, you will receive an initial notice; if the violation continues, you will receive a certified letter. Then, 30 days after receiving the certified letter and the violation still exists, the Board will make the decision to turn the account over to the attorney for legal action. Once that happens, you then begin to incur legal fees. The best way to avoid legal action and legal fees is to contact the Greatwood office as soon as you receive the first notice to inform us of your situation if you are unable to comply. Some violations may be easily fixed, some violations may take time and money, and we understand that. You may contact the office to ask for an extension of time based on your circumstances. The Association will work with you. But if you continue to ignore the notices, you will incur more and more legal fees and collection costs. The Board will not waive any of these fees. The Association pays the legal fees up front, which means all of the Greatwood residents pay those legal fees.
The key is COMMUNICATION between you as the homeowner and the Association. Again, we are here to work with you.
In order for your HOA to better serve the Greatwood Community, here is what you, the homeowner, can do to help. If you see something that needs attention, whether it is a pool or landscaping issue, or even an issue within your neighborhood, please email Nikkole Luna at the Management Office at email@example.com with your concerns. The office number is 281-545-1134. Please give them a reasonable amount of time to address the issues.
We Can’t Fix What We Don’t Know About. Please help us to keep our community Great!
