Hurricane Laura Information

The National Weather Service is projecting a category 3 hurricane, Laura, to make landfall sometime late Wednesday or early Thursday along the Texas coast between Freeport and the Texas-Louisiana border.
Based on these projections, we urge all residents to secure any loose items; bring garbage cans in off the street; clear any drains on or near your property of trash can lids, floating bags, grass clippings, limbs, and leaves; and move cars to higher ground in order to try and prevent storm drains from getting clogged and vehicles/property from being damaged.

For additional information and future updates, please visit the National Weather Service.

Trails System Updates:

Trail System construction has begun!

The 5.4-mile trail system has started construction!  Beginning at The Settlement of Cypress Creek at Telge and Spring Cypress they are now working on completing the loop around the detention pond. The Trail will then head along the bayou to Louetta Road.   The trail will then primarily run along the pipeline all the way to Fulkey Gulley. There will be a bridge over Fulkey Gulley as well as a trail south along the Gulley to Spring Cypress Road where there will be an underpass below the road.  This phase of the Trail system will connect with 10 of the 21 NWHC MUD 5 subdivisions. This Trail should be completed by the first half of 2021.  See the trail map in the NEWS tab.
