Trash Problems on a Saturday?
If you experience problems with trash pickup on a Saturday, please contact Cruz Reyes with Best Trash at 281-454-9263.
Common Area Irrigation
Please call Heather with Crest Management at 281-945-4630 to report problems with the neighborhood irrigation. We will arrange for repairs, even on weekends. Do not attempt to shut off valves yourself. We have had several instances of residents damaging the valves, resulting in repairs costing around $150. This is much more costly than the water that is wasted.
Pool and Tennis Court Access Cards
The Park Cypress Pool is open weekends in May and both pools open full time begining June 2nd. Click on the Amenities tab to view the pool hours.
To obtain an access card for the pools and tennis courts please submit the Amenity Card Access form located in the library section of the website.

Flood Elevation Information
Due to residents’ concerns about potential flooding after Hurricane Harvey, the GT Phase II HOA Board began a process of investigating ways to provide information to our residents helping them prepare for future flood events.
During the flood, one constant piece of information that seemed to be most relevant, and absent, was the elevation of our homes. There were many apps and maps that were suggested and used, but none seemed definitive. The Board felt that obtaining definitive measurements at a variety of points around the neighborhood would give the residents markers/reference points of relevant elevation information.
The Board further believed that while discussing this project with a surveyor, the opportunity should be available to all of our residents to get an elevation survey done on their homes. With a large group of homes potentially wanting to get the survey, we were able to convince the surveyor to significantly reduce their price for a home elevation survey, which they will pass along to each homeowner within the group.
Our homes are one of our most valuable personal assets and we want to protect the home values, in addition to our families and personal values. Obtaining the survey would be a good reference to let you know if you need to leave when water threatens from the reservoir backing up. In order to understand the threat, you have to know the elevation of the reference point of the overflow spillways at the dam, approx. 105ft. We asked a local resident and Emergency Services District(ESD) 48 Commissioner, Bret Fossum, to research and provide some data for spillway heights and LIDAR mapping data of our neighborhood. His Power Point presentation explaining the research can be found here on our GT II website. His 10 LIDAR maps of the Green Trails neighborhoods can be found here. This will give homeowners more information to decide if they want to get an elevation survey done. In these presentations and maps it appears that more than half of the neighborhood lies within the boundary that matches the elevation height of the spillway or lower.
If you are interested in obtaining the elevation survey, the letter from the surveyor can be found here on the GT II website. Keep in mind that this is an arrangement between each homeowner and the surveyor. We were able to suggest that they should offer a lower price due to potential large group participation. You are free to obtain the survey from whomever you prefer.
The Board hopes that all of the information gathered and presented in this effort will be useful to you should there be another “Harvey” like event. Please feel free to send any non-survey related questions to Crest Management and we will try to answer those promptly, as this discounted rate is only good for May. All survey related questions need to be directed to Prime Texas Surveys. Their contact information is on their letter posted on our website, here.
