Sep 2017 News

Please take some time and write to our Council Member Martin’s Office
Dear Residents:

Unfortunately, some homes located within the Bay Pointe neighborhood were flooded as a result of the epic amounts of rain which fell during Hurricane Harvey.  We want to express our sympathy for those who suffered damage as a result of the storm, and wish you well in your efforts to repair your homes.

As a result, the Bay Pointe and Northfork Associations are again pressing the City of Houston to clean out nearby retention Ponds near both neighborhoods – restoring them back to their original conditions as designed and built during the 1990’s. The Associations of Clear Lake Communities, of which Bay Pointe Community Association is a member, is also pressing the City once again for these retention ponds to be cleaned out and maintained. This continues to be an ongoing concern since Space Center Boulevard was extended (between 2002-2004), Ellington Airport enlarged their drainage system to flow into Horsepen Bayou, and commercial development at Ellington Airport has continued without sufficient rainwater retention capability (per 2008 Drainage Master Plan recommendations). During and after a major storm, water from these retention ponds, pipeline easements, Ellington Airport and other areas makes its way to Horsepen Bayou and if these areas are undersized, blocked, or overgrown, the water will follow the path of least resistance – as evidenced during Harvey – into streets, parking lots, buildings, homes and cars.

Please take some time and write to our Council Member Martin’s Office, Stephen Costello, “Flood Czar” for the City of Houston, and the Harris County Flood Control District. See below for their contact information.

Sincerely, your Bay Pointe Community Association Board of Directors

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
