Tennis - New Rules and New Keys
Posted on Jul 19th, 2014 Comments (0)
Following your helpful comments on our recent draft, we have revised the Rules and Regulations for the Briarhills tennis courts. We encourage all Briarhills POA and HOA residents to read and familiarize themselves with these new rules. We will replace the lock on the tennis gate with a high-security lock in mid-August. To obtain a key for the new lock, owners must submit a request on our key-order web page, which requires a Briarhills.org login. This page allows owners to designate a tenant to obtain the key on their behalf, and includes the new Rules and Regulations. After you submit a request and starting August 9th, you can pick up your key at the POA office. Please contact the Briarhills POA office briarhills@sbcglobal.net if you have any questions.
 
High-Density Development (Chapter 42) in Briarhills
Posted on Jul 10th, 2014 Comments (6)
Updated* from Jun 28, 2014
   Houston City Council has made major changes to Chapter 42, the ordinance on subdivisions, developments and platting. These affect all of Houston's neighborhoods. There is a Department of Planning and Development web page with more information on this topic, including a one-page summary of the Chapter 42 changes.
   Attorneys for the Briarhills POA have prepared a draft *amendment to our declaration document (adding to deed restriction 19) to prevent higher-density development on owners' properties. At the annual meeting in September, owners will vote on these revisions. *Read the open letter from the POA Vice President, and click on the Comments link above to give your feedback.

If you see people of any age in places they should not be day or night immediately call the constable on 281-463-6666. When the operator asks whether it is an emergency, say "Yes."
When reporting suspicious persons try to give a description of the person from head to feet.  starting with hat, hair, glasses, facial hair, race, color of clothing and direction of travel. The more information available the better chance of the subject being located.
Keep your garage doors closed. An open garage door is an invitation to burglars shopping the neighborhood.

● add 12 more months for residents who had already paid, and avoid the expense/trouble of collecting/paying later.
Please send or deliver your payments to the POA Office.
All HOA residents have curbside pickup.
   WCA will not recycle styrofoam. Read our article for an alternative to sending it to a landfill with the trash. They also will not recycle plastic bags, which you can return to some stores. For more information on the materials that WCA will and will not recycle, visit the WCA recycling page.
