Summerwood Community Association
Summerwood Community Association

Summerwood is a master planned community located in the northeast Houston area.  The community will eventually have just over 3200 homes when it is 100% developed.  Summerwood has a large number of amenities including two swimming pools, two clubhouses, tennis courts, volley ball courts, nature trails, lakes and more! 

In early 2011, the Association reached the milestone of 75% development which triggered a change in the composition of the Board of Directors.  At this stage in the community, the Board must be made up of five (5) resident members and two (2) developer representatives.  A Special Meeting of the Membership was conducted in March to elect the five resident board members.  There were over 15 candidates and a very large turnout of the membership!  The volunteers and residents in Summerwood are one of the reasons that the community remains such a beautiful place to call home. 

The Board of Directors has worked with C.I.A. Services over the last five (5) years with the goal to improve the financial position of the Association.  In 2006, the Association had $23,000 set aside in their funds; only 2% of the required funds for the future and unknown needs of the Association and were unable to make major replacements if needed without financial assistance from the developer, Newland Communities.  By the end of 2011, the Association will have over $600,000 which is almost 50% of the required funds.  Based on the current long term plans the Board has implemented, the Association will be fully funded by 2016 and will reach this goal while still making the necessary replacements in the community (with no financial assistance), thus maintaining the community standard.  That is a long way to go in just 10 years! 

In addition to the Board of Directors, the community has several active committees that continue to make a difference.  The Architectural Review Committee is instrumental in maintaining the aesthetic design of the community.  The very active Crime Watch Committee manages block captains for the entire neighborhood as well as plans and hosts the annual Summerwood National Night Out event, one of the most successful NNO’s in the area.  The Summerwood Pool Committee continues to work on maintaining and improving all of the aquatic facilities in Summerwood and have helped orchestrate several large improvements at each.  The newly formed Fitness Committee has already been involved with the recent tennis court resurfacing and has begun a large project to expand the Fitness Center.  All of the committees maintain and facilitate an open line of communication between the residents, the board members, the management company and the committee members.

It is a pleasure to be a part of the team known as Summerwood!  We have enjoyed the past 6 years and look forward to a continuous and successful partnership!
