Phase 1 of Trail Project Approved

The Board of Directors of Harris County Water Control & Improvement District No. 155 (the “District”) has approved moving forward with the first phase of its trail project.
Phase 1 of the trail will be along the north side of Channel A (the channel running adjacent to Cypresswood Drive) from Crescent Lily to Fairfield Falls Way. It will consist of an approximate six-foot wide concrete sidewalk and will include grouped tree plantings, benches, trash bins, and doggy waste stations.
A preliminary design for Phase 1 will be presented to the Board of Directors at its meeting on July 24, 2023 at 5:30 p.m. at Bradford Creek Clubhouse, and the public is invited to attend.

The goal of the Board is to provide connectivity and beautify the trail system, so it can be easily enjoyed by all residents. The first phase of the project will provide better and safer access to the middle school for kids walking or riding bikes.

The location of Phase 1 is shown below:

Fairfield MUDs Help Make Inclusive Park At Swenke a Reality

Lisha Lupher, director on Harris County MUD 396, presents checks from both Harris County MUD 396 and Harris County MUD 397 to Dr. Elizabeth Miller, principal of Swenke Elementary School. The checks are the final part of a year-long fundraising campaign by the Swenke PTO, families within the Fairfield community as well as generous donations by Harris County MUD 396, Harris County MUD 397, and Harris County MUD 322. The Fairfield MUDS played an integral role in funding the all-inclusive playground for special needs children and also a canopy to shade the multiple structures and specialized surfaces. This will be the first of its kind park within Cy-Fair ISD. Moving forward, it is the hope that this partnership between MUDS and the school district will be a catalyst to see more of these all-inclusive parks and recreational facilities built in other areas of the Cy Fair ISD community. This park will serve all children and will be available to the public outside of school hours.

Proposed Trail Project Informational Meeting

Monday, April 24, 2023 at 6 p.m.
Presented by Harris County Water Control & Improvement District No. 155

The District is a governmental unit created to construct and operate the drainage channels needed to serve the land within most of Fairfield. It levies a tax on property owners within the District to fund the construction and operation of the drainage channels.

The District is governed by a five-member elected Board of Directors, who are all residents of Fairfield, striving to improve the community in any way possible.

The District has constructed three major drainage channels that run through Fairfield carrying stormwater away from Fairfield and depositing it into a large detention pond south of U.S. 290 on Cypress Creek.

The Board is proposing to enhance the trail system in Fairfield by building new trails along the banks of the channels that connect with existing trails and by adding landscaping and other amenities along the trails. The goal of the Board is to provide connectivity and beautify the trail system, so it can be easily enjoyed by all residents.

The Board has created a master trail plan which highlights various proposed projects. The Board plans to implement the master plan in phases and to the extent of available funds.

Recently, the District paid off all its bonds and does not anticipate issuing more bonds for several years. This has allowed a reduction of the District’s tax rate by more than 20% between 2017 and 2022 (from $0.14/$100 assessed value to $0.11/$100).

Through careful supervision of construction and operating expenses, the District has available funds, which may be used for other permitted purposes. The board is currently planning to use some of these funds to construct trails and make other improvements along the drainage channels. All costs for these projects will be covered by funds currently available. There will be no increase in the District’s tax rate as a result of any trail project in the District.

The Board understands that communication with residents regarding its projects and goals is vital. With that in mind, we have asked our website provider, Infinity Services, LLC, to help us keep residents updated regarding trail projects in the District using water bill inserts and messages, social media and news posts on the District’s website.

Good! The District welcomes all residents to an informational meeting on Monday April 24, 2023 at which the trail plan will be presented and residents will be able to provide their feedback. The meeting is scheduled for 6 p.m. at the Bradford Creek Clubhouse in Fairfield.

Additional questions and comments can be fielded through the Contact Us form on the District’s website.

Freezing Weather Notification

Winter weather and freezing temperatures are expected this week across Texas. The National Weather Service is forecasting widespread freezing temperatures on Friday and Saturday mornings. Residents should closely monitor media and the National Weather Service for updates to the forecast. We wanted to assure you that the teams at Inframark are monitoring and working diligently in preparation for a freezing weather event to safeguard your facilities. It is also important that you take action as well in protecting the “Four P’s”: People, pets, pipes and plants.

People

  • Keep warm, stay inside if possible.
  • If you need to go out, dress in layers and wear hats, gloves and an appropriate coat.
  • Avoid overexertion, as cold weather puts added strain on your body.

Pets

  • Bring pets inside, and move other animals or livestock to sheltered areas.
  • Keep adequate food and water available.

Pipes

  • Disconnect outdoor hoses, drain and store in protected area.
  • Wrap exposed faucets and pipes – including those outside the house or in unheated crawl spaces, attics, garages and other areas.

Plants

  • Bring potted plants inside or store in garage near interior wall to provide extra warmth and protection from wind.
  • For cold-sensitive outdoor plants, put down extra mulch and consider covering with a cloth fabric of some kind to shield the plants from wind and frost.

Additionally, if you have an irrigation system, turn off the water to the system at your backflow preventer and then drain the system so your irrigation pipes and sprinkler heads are not damaged.
