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.

Residents impacted by flooding should note that the HMGP is a separate grant opportunity from the Flood Mitigation Assistance Grant Program (FMA), which the City of Houston has already submitted to FEMA. An update on the status of the FWA application was also be provided during this meeting.

For more information, please visit or contact the FMO at (832) 394-8854 or via email at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .
