Community Reminders

  • Please refrain from feeding birds and wildlife at your house. Bird feeders and other food left out can attract many unwanted animals in your neighbor's yards.

  • You may not operate a business out of your home if it is apparent or detectable by sight, sound or smell.

  • Generators should not be seen from the street. They should be behind your fence line or screened by landscaping.

  • Remember that many houses are very close to each other. Keep your neighbors in mind when you are in your yard and be mindful of your noise level especially late at night.

  • It is a Fort Bend County law that dogs should always be on a leash.

  • Golf Carts are NOT allowed on the Sports Fields or any other sidewalks in Firethorne. Golf Carts are to be driven on the streets by licensed driver ONLY.
  • Report street light outages to Centerpoint, be sure to have the 6-digit pole number available.
  • There are many varieties of wildlife around Katy. Be mindful when letting small pets outside alone.
  • Firethorne is a safe place to live but you still shouldn't leave valuables in your car when visiting the pools and parks. Be sure to always lock your car doors.
  • Yield to pedestrians in crosswalks. Please stay alert and free of distractions while driving.
  • Parking by the mailboxes is for short term parking ONLY while you are picking up your mail. Do not park in these areas overnight.
