Association

Board of Directors
Board of Directors The Association consists of a 3 member Board of Directors who volunteer their time for the benefit of the community. The Board is elected by the members of the community at the annual meetings.

If a director is unable to complete their full term, the Board will appoint someone to fill that seat until that term expires. A list of the current board members is available on the Key Personnel page.

The Board of Directors elects the officers after the annual meeting. The term of all officers range from 1 to 3 years depending on the position held. A description of each position is available on the Become a Volunteer page.

Shared Fences
C.I.A. Services and the Board of Directors want to inform all owners that the fences that may run between you and your neighbor are shared fences and they are to be maintained by both parties that share the fence. I understand many neighbors feel if the good side faces you then it isn’t your responsibility, but that is not the fact - it is both parties responsibility. The reason that some may have the good side is the house was built first or someone had already replaced it and the other party didn’t split the cost. 

This is not an HOA issue. The only fences the HOA send letters on is what is seen from the street. If your fences are aging and if your fence has never been replaced, then perhaps it is time to replace it. It is up to each individual owner to make arrangements with their neighbors to share the cost of replacement. If an owner chooses to replace a fence without their neighbor agreeing to share the cost, it would be up to that owner if they wish to pursue reimbursement from the neighbor for a portion of the cost of fence replacement.

Exterior Modification
Exterior Modification All exterior alterations or improvements to a property must be reviewed and approved in advance of construction by the Architectural Control Committee (ACC). Residents must submit a home improvement application describing the work to be performed. The ACC will review the request and render a decision within 30 days. If it is not approved as submitted, the ACC may provide suggestions for making changes so it can be resubmitted for approval.

To complete your application, click on Ask. Request. Submit. There you will enter all of the information needed in order for the committee to make an informed decision. Any applications dealing with the exterior appearance of the house (such as painting or roofing) must be accompanied with project details or the application might be disapproved for lack of information. Also include a plat map or survey of the property that indicates the project in conjunction to the property lines and easements when applicable.

As soon as you have gathered your information, you are ready to get started.

Visit the Community Documents page to review all of the governing documents or click Modification Guidelines.

Exterior home paint colors should be nuetral earth tone colors i.e. grays and browns. You may click here to view examples. Please note, this is just an example, and should not be referenced for confirmation. All Home Improvement Requests must be submitted for approval prior ro any exterior modification. 

Services and Utilities

Garffitti Abatement Waiver
The Harris County Sheriff’s Office has a Graffiti Abatement Removal program, which when you fill out the waiver it gives them permission to remove the graffiti. If you have graffiti on your house they will use a gray indoor/outdoor latex paint which is supplied free of charge. They will ONLY paint the area where the graffiti is. They WILL NOT paint your house. If you paint it the gray color you will then be in violations of the Associations Covenants. We recommend you purchase the paint to match the color of your house. They will paint the area the color you provide. Keep in mind if your house color is faded it is recommended you paint the whole house to elivate the two tone color.  

If you have graffiti on your fence they can paint it with the same gray paint or pressure wash. If you paint it you will again be in violation of the Association Covenants and it is recommended you pressure wash it. You must fill out the waiver.
