Easton Commons
 
 

                                               Welcome to Easton Commons  
 
The homes of Easton Commons surround a beautifully landscaped pool, park, gazebo and playground. The park serves as a gathering point both for adults and children, and offers activities from community events to swimming and impromptu volleyball games. It is complemented by the larger Easton Commons Nature Park nearby. Easton Commons offers the closeness of a small community while being an active part of the larger Copperfield Community.

Egrets and Night Herons

Egrets and Night Herons have created nesting sites in Easton Commons over the past 6 months.  The Egrets and Night Herons WILL be returning in February!!  Prevention is Crucial - Egrets, herons and other migratory birds are protected by Federal International Treaty, it’s illegal for residents to harass or harm the birds once they lay eggsResidents will need to band together and drive them out of our neighborhood for the next several years. Preventing the birds from building nests on residential property or in our parks is key.

Use these tactics between now and February.

1.     Trim your tree and remove dead wood, these birds favor oak trees and other hardwoods, but will nest in other mature trees as well.  Trim your tree canopy to allow sunlight between limbs and other nearby trees.  Experts say this is the MOST effective step.

2.     Remove any old inactive nests in your trees.  

February – Egret Prevention Tools!  This is the only opportunity homeowners have to scare the birds away and to disrupt the cycle.  Any home with mature trees is a potential nesting site.

·Visual deterrents - Hang aluminum pie plates, Mylar balloons, beach balls with shiny streamers or other moving objects in large trees.

·Noisemakers - Pump-style air horns, whistles, clappers and even children’s toys are effective. Make as much noise as possible aimed at the bird.  

·Bright lights - High-intensity flashlights, strobe lights, flashing holiday lights can be effective.

·Water sprayers - Power sprayers and pump-style toy water shooters can help. Homemade PVC pipe sprayers can help reach tall tree limbs.

·Pool poles - Telescoping pool safety poles can be used to reach and remove early nesting material.

·Any Non-lethal devices.

·Check trees daily and remove the start of any nest quickly. Once birds begin sitting on the nest, eggs are probably present and birds cannot be harassed.

 

If you have not yet taken action to prevent nesting on your property, please do so now

                             

Trim your trees Remove dead wood. Thin tree canopy to allow sunlight between limbs and other trees. Experts say this is the most effective step you can take.

Visual deterrents Hang aluminum pie plates, Mylar balloons, beach balls with shiny streamers or other moving objects in large trees before m id-Feb.

Noisemakers Pump-style air horns, whistles, clappers and even children's toys are effective. Make as much noise as possible aimed at the bird.

Bright lights High-intensity flashlights, strobe lights, flashing holiday lights can be effective.

Water sprayers Power sprayers and pump-style toy water shooters can help. Homemade PVC pipe sprayers can help reach tall tree limbs.

Pool poles Telescoping pool safety poles can be used to reach and remove early nesting material.

 

REMEMBER THAT RESIDENTS ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR THEIR OWN PROPERTY

                          MESSAGE FROM THE CY-FAIR VOLUNTEER FIRE DEPARTMENT:

 
The Cy-Fair Volunteer Fire Department is requesting homeowner assistance in addressing the low hanging trees within the Copperfield community. These low hanging branches or limbs are hampering responses to calls for assistance. The branches and limbs are damaging equipment and Homeowner’s trees.  Routes to locations have to be altered. Some locations are unable to have an alternate route, leaving no recourse but to park the apparatus and walk to the location.
Several pieces of equipment are 13 feet tall and CFVFD is requesting that homeowners trim the trees to have a 14 feet umbrella over the street.  The Department members have been instructed not to damage their apparatus or the Homeowner’s trees by driving down streets that do not have appropriate passage.  The fire department does not wish to have a citizen with a fire or medical emergency that delays them receiving attention due to having to locate an alternate route or being forced to walk to the emergency location.
 

 
 
 
 
 

 
Easton Commons Village Fencing
 
All fences must be 6’6” tall (6’ tall plus a 6” rot board). Breezeway fences can be 4’ tall.  Those living on the outer edges of the community may use an 8’ fence (7’6” tall plus a 6” rot board) on that portion of the lot that faces the perimeter of the subdivision.  All fences should be installed so that the picket side faces outward, to avoid unsightly public exposure of rails and posts. (Perimeter is defined as non-Easton Commons property).  Pickets may range from 4 to 6 inches in width.

Tips for increasing Value

A home is one of the most valuable assets you have!  Maintaining and enhancing its appeal, increases it’s value as well as the value of homes in the entire neighborhood.  Pretty homes sell faster, and for more money, than unattractive homes.  Neighborhoods that have curb appeal throughout are more desirable; homeowners can ask for higher than average prices, sell for the price asked, and sell quickly.

Easton Commons would like to introduce some simple and inexpensive ways to keep your home beautiful and increase its curb appeal.  Evaluate your property on a regular basis to see if you have any of these opportunities for improvement.    
  • Remove trash and trash cans from the front of the property on a regular basis;
  • Cut the grass regularly;
  • Remove debris from the gutters;
  • Sweep the curb and pick up debris;
  • Weed the flower beds and trim any hedges;
  • Water and fertilize the lawn so it stays healthy and green;
  • Remove mildew from brick, siding, and sidewalks;
  • Trim bushes and trees that are obstructing sidewalks, intersections, or your neighbor’s property;
  • Repair broken windows, doors and garage doors;
  • Touch up faded paint and replace rotting wood;
  • Wipe down the front door, and polish the metal door hardware to make it shine;
  • Keep fencing and gates in good repair;
  • Keep the driveway free of stains and oil;
  • Park vehicles that are not moved often in the garage;
  • Keep basketball goals and toys off the streets;
  • Install landscape lighting;
  • Keep pets on a leash, and clean up after them;
  • Interact with neighbors; see if they could use some help with cleanup efforts;
  • Report any criminal activity or mischief;
If every homeowner in our community committed to making just one small improvement, it could increase our home values substantially, making us attractive to home buyers, making the neighborhood a more enjoyable and satisfying place to live.

Together, we can continue to keep our neighborhood a desirable one.
