Rebuilding in Meyerland

If you have made the decision to construct a new home in Meyerland, there are few things you need to know.

It is important that you begin your process with us.

Make an appointment to speak with Randi Cahill in the Meyerland office. She can help you easily navigate the rules of the association, sharing information you will need to tell your builder before spending the money to design a home as well as how to apply for approval of construction of your new home in Meyerland. There are very few forms and requirements, but they are specific. Once you have received your stamped approved plans, you need to apply with the City of Houston.

Applying for permits to construct your new home in a flood plain can be found by clicking on the following link. http://www.houstonpermittingcenter.org/   Contractors/Builders have has great success using the electronic process of application. If you need specific assistance you can make an appointment with a City of Houston plan reviewer. Visit the permitting page to have all of your City of Houston questions answered.

Please take a few minutes to complete the Contact Information Update Form and provide us with your current information.

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.
