Designed to assist children aged 3-5 with learning to ride a bike, balance bikes focus on the fundamentals of balancing, leaning, and steering without the distractions and complications of pedals or training wheels. The simple, no-pedal design builds confidence and eliminates fear by allowing kids to have their feet on the ground and progress at their own pace. This teaches young children balance on two wheels right from the start, avoiding developmental delays typical with other ride-on toys or tricycles.
The Greatwood HOA has a limited number of balance bikes for short-term use. Send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org with your contact information, and you will be notified as soon as a balance bike becomes available. The balance bikes are available to Greatwood residents at NO CHARGE. A signed waiver and release of liability is required.

According to the National Weather Service, the Brazos River in Fort Bend County is expected to crest Thursday morning, December 17, 2015. The current National Weather Service projections for the Brazos River put the crest at 42.3 feet several feet below the toe of the levee protecting Greatwood.
Residents within the community should anticipate higher than normal water levels in the lakes and drainage channels. If there is additional rainfall in the area, ponding water in the streets should also be anticipated and is a normal part of the overall drainage and flood projection system. Please avoid driving through those areas in that event. Water in the street should recede as the rain subsides.
According to LMS, LID 11’s operator, all of the District’s levee and drainage facilities are functioning normally at this time. The current and projected River levels are within the design parameters of the levee system.
The District will provide further updates on our website if conditions materially change during the remainder of the week.

The Sheriff’s Office has begun patrolling Greatwood. We are in the process of addressing several issues immediately.
The first is the backup of traffic in the morning on Riverbrook. We have closed off the right lane and are moving traffic onto the feeder road. This seems to be working very well and we have had a lot of positive feedback.
Secondly we have discovered some problems at Dickinson Elementary in the morning before school starts. We are asking for your assistance in making sure that the children get to school safely. Therefore we have several requests:
1. Please obey the 20 mph speed limit in the school zone.
2. Please come to a complete stop before the white line at stop signs.
3. Please refrain from calling or texting while in the school zone.
4. Please do not park on Greatwood Parkway in front of the no parking signs.
5. Please follow the directions of the Crossing Guards. It is against the law to disregard their direction and you can be ticketed for doing so. When children are crossing the street traffic in the entire intersection should stop until the children are safely across.
We would like to rely on your voluntary compliance. We will begin by writing warnings but if the problem continues we will be forced to write tickets. We are hoping that this can be avoided.
We will be addressing problems as they come to our attention. Greatwood is a very safe neighborhood and we will be working hard to keep it that way. If you are aware of a problem or have a concern that needs to be addressed please let Nikkole Luna know and we would be happy to check it out.
Thank you in advance for your cooperation.

During the next several weeks AT&T will be in the Shores, Manor, Arbor and Landing sections installing fiber optic cable. They will be placing door hangers on those doors where they will need access to your back yard.
If you have any questions, regarding this matter, please contact AT&T.
Your HOA is encouraging Greatwood residents to sign up to receive e-mail alerts by registering on our community website. This is an effort to provide our community with timely information.
This is an information only service. There is no way to respond on this site. If you have any question about a post, please feel free to contact our Management Company at 281-545-1134 or any HOA Board Member.
To sign up for this service go to our community website:
There is a box on the top of the home page for you to register for e-mail alerts.
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!
