Park Plan Status as of February 1, 2019

(See FBMUD118 website under RESOURCES / DOCUMENTS / PROJECT DOCUMENTS for more information on each park project.)

The MUD District 118 recently completed the purchase of the playground property and equipment on the Village side of Water Side Estates from the HOA for around $80,000. This is to upgrade the current park and begin planning on adding new playground equipment for the local residents. There will be a consistent maintenance program to keep the park clean, safe and updated. Currently, planning and selection of the new equipment is being done through the MUD Park Committee. Status reports on this phase of the MUD Park Improvement Program will be provided as available along with the completion dates. Your cooperation during the construction will be appreciated. Safety is our main concern.

The District has recently undertaken numerous capital projects intended to improve the quality of life within the District and promote water conservation.  These include the addition of a walking/jogging trail within Barski Park (Phase 1), a children’s splash pad area, a new playground, a pavilion, and a reclaimed water irrigation system to serve District greenspace areas.  The Board of Director’s respectfully requests your patience as the construction of these improvements proceeds.  All current projects are expected to be complete by March, 2019.  The Board of Directors of the District encourages all individuals interested in the projects to review the maps provided and attend the Board of Director’s monthly meetings held at 6:00 PM on the second Tuesday of every month at the office of the Greater Fort Bend EDC, One Fluor Daniel Drive, Sugar Land, Texas 77478.

The Splash Pad has been completed and is open for use. There is a push button on a pad  to activate the equipment. It will be operational from 8:00 am to 8:00 pm daily from April through October. The official splash pad rules will be posted soon. 

The new Reclaimed Water Project pipeline being installed along the roadways in the subdivision has been completed. This is in preparation of completion of the rest of the system at the Sanitation Plant, upgrading and checking of the current sprinkler systems and proper identification of the equipment to be connected to this new water supply. Completion date for crossover will be announced in the future.

Animal Control in the Subdivision

As spring arrives, bringing mild temperatures, the weather is perfect to enjoy the District’s parks, playgrounds, and trails. Often our K9 friends join us for our daily dose of exercise. The District has seen an increase in the number of reports of unrestrained dogs in area parks, and along trails.

Although your dog may be gentle, many people can be frightened by unrestrained dogs. Unrestrained dogs may be overly enthusiastic with small children, the young-at-heart, and other pets in the community which can create a risk for dog bites or other injuries. Unrestrained or free-roaming dogs pose a substantial threat to the public. In addition, unrestrained dogs are at an increased risk of being bitten by wildlife present in the community, increasing the potential for the spread of illness.

Fort Bend County has established regulations requiring the restraint of dogs when outside a dwelling. Enforcement of restraint laws is essential in protecting the public using common areas within the community. As you enjoy the great outdoors with your pet, please be courteous, and help keep our community safe by abiding by dog restraint regulations. The District also encourages you to report all instances of unrestrained dogs.

To report a dog bite or other emergency situation, please call 911. For non-emergency reports of unrestrained dogs, please contact Fort Bend County Animal Control Services (281) 342-1512.

Larry’s Toolbox Program

Fort Bend MUD 118 participates in the North Fort Bend Water Authority (NFBWA) Larry’s Toolbox Program. The program is designed to assist MUD’s in promoting water conversation. There are different initiatives we elect to participate in within the program term (yearly) that allows us to receive points. These points, if program requirements are met, can result in some savings through the next calendar year from the NFBWA. In 2018, FB118 participated in an initiatives to give away three rain barrels to residents within the community. Maheen Khan, Zenna Sumo and John Wisbrock were the lucky winners of this initiative. If you are interested in receiving a rain barrel or would like more information on the program, please visit www.nfbwa.com or call 832-467-1599.
