Resident Meeting regarding deed restrictions

On January 12th at 7:30 p.m. at the Godwin Park Recreation Center, the Meyerland Board of Directors and the Deed Restriction Renewal Committee request a meeting with the property owners of sections 7-C and 8-I to discuss the proposed set of deed restrictions.  As there have been many comments for and against this set, it is imperative the you come to the meeting to share your thoughts about these changes. Members of both the board and the committee will attend to hear your opinions.  

Please look through your set of restrictions in anticipation of this meeting.  The proposed deed restrictions and a summary of the changes can be found on our website in the article below.  We look forward to your attendance.

Proposed Deed Restriction Changes

The MCIA Board of Directors is releasing proposed changes to Sections 7-C and 8-I deed restrictions.  You can determine if your property is in either of these sections by using the Find Your Section Tool available on the website.  Even if you do not reside in these sections, changes will be coming to your section soon and we encourage all Meyerland residents to review the documents.

The Board feels that the proposed amendments are necessary to allow property owners to optimize the use of their lots while maintaining the quality of care and construction in Meyerland. We request that you carefully review this proposed deed restriction set as this document will be presented to the board for approval and adoption.  As this is also currently receiving legal review, changes may be necessary to ensure clarity and compliance with all city, state, and federal regulations.
 
The board expects your feedback. Please contact the MCIA office with your comments and questions in writing by emailing us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or by fax to 713-729-0048 by December 31, 2015

Deed Restriction Changes are Coming

The proposed Deed Restrictions for Section 7c and 8i are currently being reviewed by the Residents in those respective sections. The new Deed Restrictions are different not only in layout, but also in content. Most provisions will remain intact, but they will now include added clarification. Other provisions are new and address the needs of the Meyerland neighborhoods today while taking into account the possibility of changes in the future. The new Deed Restrictions are less specific and policies will now dictate permissible activity. This will allow more flexibility in construction standards and way of life changes.

We invite all residents to review these restrictions. Over the next 12 to 15 months the Board intends to roll out new sets of Deed Restrictions across the remaining 19 sections of Meyerland. After December 6th the new sets of Deed Restrictions for Sections 7c and 8i will be posted on the website and you can read the quick comparison sheet that explains the more significant changes.

Assessment's are Coming

About mid-December, you will be receiving your annual assessment invoice in the mail. The payment is due in full on January 1, 2016, and is considered delinquent if it is not received by February 1, 2016. All payments are to be mailed to a PO Box address in Arizona. 

Why do we mail our assessments to Arizona instead of Texas? We use a bank that specializes in homeowner association accounts. The bank processes over 100,000 payments monthly from hundreds of homeowner associations around the country. Their expertise ensures the safe transmission of your payment directly to your account. There is no charge for this electronic service. Using an electronic payment system is much more efficient than using the MCIA office to manually process over 2,300 payments. The cost savings by using this system are passed onto you.

If your mortgage company pays your assessment from your escrow account, please forward this information to them to ensure prompt payment. 

If you do not receive your bill in the mail by December 31st, we strongly urge you to contact the MCIA office to request another copy. You may call us at 713-729-2167 or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. with your property address.

Flood Recovery Grant Opportunity

On Wednesday, October 7th, the City of Houston’s Floodplain Management Office hosted a public meeting regarding the FEMA Hazard Mitigation Grant Program (HMGP), a program through which the City of Houston is applying for a grant in partnership with the Texas Department of Emergency Management. HMGP is a state-wide competitive program and funding is not guaranteed.

If the City of Houston is awarded HMGP funding, the grant will assist some qualified homeowners with the cost of either home elevation or demolition-reconstruction. Interested parties must submit all required documents before 5PM on Friday, November 6th to be considered for inclusion in the HMGP grant application.
