BPCA Tree Audit

To the members of our community:  

It has come to our attention that many homeowners in Bay Pointe received Deed Restriction Violation notices related to trees located in between the sidewalk and street during the past few weeks. For the purpose of discussion, we generically refer to these trees as "street trees" (as opposed to "yard trees"). Since 2010, the Board has acknowledged that there are cases where street trees are disturbing the sidewalks in the community and creating hazardous conditions, among other problems to homeowners. Also in 2010, an improved set of Architectural Guidelines was issued by the Board to provide more flexibility by allowing replacement of the original Live Oak street trees with trees having less aggressive root systems (Bradford Pear, Crepe Myrtle, and Chinese Pistachio).

1. In addition to the Bay Pointe Architectural Guidelines and procedures, the City of Houston requires a permit to remove any street trees.

2. We have been informed that the City allows permits to be issued in Clear Lake when a tree is causing sidewalk damage that makes it dangerous to walk. A representative from the City’s Urban Forestry Office is expected to attend the Board’s next business meeting (April 10, 2017) to provide further insight into City regulations and the permitting process. We hope you plan to attend this meeting.

If any member of this community wants to remove street trees along their property a Home Improvement Request needs to be submitted. Those will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis. Please document any damage caused by the tree(s) (i.e. photos of damages) since these help explain the particular situation of every homeowner. Please know that your volunteer-based, unpaid Board of Directors is aware of the situation and is diligently working to resolve the issue for our community. We will communicate what is learned in our next meeting with everyone.   

Regards,

Your Bay Pointe Board of Directors,

Alden Bushnell, President pro tem
Lisamar Maldonado, Secretary
Toby Stephens, Treasurer
Richard Sarpong, Director
