Dancing Bear Property Owners Association


Board of Directors
Board of Directors The Dancing Bear Property Owners’ Association is a Texas corporation with five persons on its Board of Directors. The board members are elected by the property owners at the annual meeting. Board members are elected for three year terms on a staggered basis so one or two terms expire each year. The annual meetings are held in February of each year. Officers (President, Vice President, Secretary & Treasurer) are reappointed by the Board after each annual meeting.

Gate Access
Gate Access Dancing Bear is a custom home gated community with private streets. When a new home is built, the owner receives 2 remotes at no charge which can be picked up at our Pipe Creek office. Any remotes beyond the initial 2 per household cost $25 each. Lost, malfunctioning or replacement remotes also cost $25 each. Owners of lots without a home can purchase remotes for $25 each. Payments for remotes are made to "Dancing Bear POA". 

There is a telephone entry system at both gates. Guests can locate and call residents from a directory for access to the community. Each owner can have two unique entry codes: one for personal & family use and one for service providers (such as a maid or landscape services). The entry codes can be used on the gate keypad to open the gates.

Fire Safety
Fire Safety Because fire can so easily and rapidly destroy much of what makes our neighborhood beautiful, it is important to take the time to establish good fire safety practices. Keep in mind that besides the need for establishing a 100 ft. defensible area around your structures you could consider installing a 2,500 gallon emergency water supply tank on your Dancing Bear Ranch property. It benefits you and everyone else in the Association.

If you are going to conduct controlled burns, please contact the Medina County Sheriff’s office at (830) 741-6153.

If you have further questions regarding fire safety, please feel free to visit the Mico Volunteer Fire Department website at
