For Owners on Swan Meadow Lane
If you have electric lines behind your house . . .
In conjunction with CenterPoint Energy, your homeowners association arranged to have the utility easement behind your residence cleared in late 2014. They sent a letter to you at the time advising you that you own the property under the electric utilities, and that you are required to keep that area clear and free of trash. This includes mowing behind your house.
If you choose to do so, you may install a gate in your existing rear fence to access the area. If you don’t already have a fence in the easement area, you may build one; however, if you choose to build a fence on your side property line in this easement, you must allow gate access for passage of CenterPoint equipment.
The Board of Directors of Kenswick Homeowners’ Association will require you and your neighbors to continue to maintain the area behind your residence for the health, safety, and aesthetic appeal of the entire Kenswick community. Your abandonment or abuse of this area will not be tolerated. This shall serve as notice that any such abandonment, dumping, or abuse will be pursued by deed restriction enforcement and by all legal means available to the Association.
Attached is copy of the filed document which was adopted by the Board of Directors on October 21, 2013.
School buses, fire trucks, trash haulers -- all such necessary municipal vehicles are having a hard time driving down some of the streets in the Kenswick community. Since Kenswick is a mature community, many of its beautiful trees have matured as well. Of course the trees native to this area grow laterally as much as they do in height. The result is a beautiful canopy, but it is also in impediment to larger vehicle traffic when it spreads over the street.
To address this situation, the Board of Directors of Kenswick H.O.A. has stipulated that such interference into the roadway area constitutes a nuisance to the community, and that it will be pursued as a violation of the deed restrictions.
Many of our neighbors have already received a notification stating:
Trimming of tree overhanging street is required. The Board of Directors has ruled that trees overhanging the street have an adverse effect on school buses and fire trucks moving through the community.
The Board urges you to respect this requirement in the event you receive such a notification.
The Board has also been advised that the Harris County Community Assistance department (http://www.hcp4.net/cad/index.htm) may offer trimming over the street on an individual basis. However, each individual owner must request the service for his/her own property in order for the Community Assistance Department to respond.
