Signatures needed for new Deed Restrictions

The Meyerland Board of Directors and the Deed Restriction Renewal Committee recently met with many property owners of section 7c and 8i to discuss the proposed set of deed restrictions and release them for signature. They are currently pending approval.  A simple majority of lot owners is needed for them to go into effect.. 

If you are unsure which section your property is located in, you may check that information using our online Find Your Section Tool

A copy of these restrictions and the necessary signature pages were mailed to the property owners with instructions to return the signature page to the office. A copy of those documents is provided at the end of this article.  

The board is beginning the collection of signatures.  We need the original signature page with the signatures of those responsible for the lot.  The office staff members are notaries and can certify your signature free of charge.  Office staff will be available  during the office hours starting at 9:00 a.m. until we close at 2:30 p.m.  We will also be open at the following special times to assist you with obtaining a notarized signature. Extended hours will be announced through the Meyerland email blast system and on the facebook page.

What to Expect from Heavy Debris Pickup

MCIA recently spoke with our Solid Waste Management Supervisor for our area, Alyce Coffey. We asked her some common questions we have been receiving from homeowners. Please review her answers below:

How long and when will the City of Houston be picking up Storm Debris in our area?

  • Storm Debris is being picked up Now. The city of Houston has a contractor truck in Meyerland now and will continue to be in the area daily until further notice. 

How do I get my storm Debris picked up? 

  • Call 3-1-1 and report the types of materials you have placed at the curb ie: Storm debris, hazardous waste, tires, electronics/ appliances so they can send out the correct truck

Will they pick-up my storm debris if I do not report it? 

  • The city may pick up your debris if they see it, but it is not guaranteed they will see it or have the correct truck to pick it up. In order to ensure timely pick-up the debris from your home, it should be reported to 3-1-1.

Is hazardous waste a separate pick-up? 

  • Yes, hazardous waste is a separate pick-up from storm debris. If you have hazardous waste you need to report that to 3-1-1 to schedule a pick-up. The same applies to tires

What is the turnaround time from when I report my storm debris to 3-1-1 to when they pick-up?

  • That depends, but if it is out for more than 3 working days please email the MCIA office at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. so we can report it to the supervisor. Please include your report number, day it was reported and type of storm debris needing pick up.

Can I put bagged storm debris out for pick-up?

  • Yes, the crews have been instructed to pick up bagged debris despite the instructions on the flyer.

Residents will need to have all debris at the curbside, not in the road. Items should be segregated into Seven (7) piles away from fire hydrants, mailboxes, power lines and other objects that will hamper safe pickup.

 

Debris separation piles:

Debris should be separated into seven piles:

 

  1. Black trash bags of storm debris
  2. Vegetative debris – limbs, branches, plants 
  3. Construction and demolition debris – carpet, drywall, furniture, lumber, plumbing, mattresses
  4. Appliances and white goods – freezers, refrigerators, stoves, etc.
  5. Electronics – computers, radios, - anything with a cord
  6. Household hazardous waste – cleaning supplies, lawn chemicals, oil-based paint, pesticides, etc. Latex paint will NOT be collected
  7. Tires

 

 

*The City of Houston Solid Waste Management Department is asking residents to remove all parked vehicles from the streets in the areas hit by the tax day storm to facilitate easy access of the heavy equipment during debris collection. If heavy trucks are unable to pass safely along the streets, the City will not be able to remove the debris.  

As the storm debris is picked up the property is required to be kept neat, attractive and all sidewalks are to be swept clear of debris and glass.

Rebuilding in Meyerland

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.
