What is a community association (HOA) and why does it exist? All homeowners are encouraged to read the following document. Why HOA exists?
Home Improvements - Prior to making any home improvements to the outside of your home, be sure to read the ACC Guidelines to ensure that your improvements conform to the HBTM HOA standards of construction, visual appeal, uniformity, and design. It is your responsibility to forward the ACC Form to the management company at least thirty (30) days before beginning your home improvements. The rules require that you have approval by the ACC Committee prior to beginning the work on your home. If the homeowner makes an improvement that does not meet the stated ACC guidelines, the board has the legal right to enforce compliance. If you have any questions about home improvements, please contact our property manager at ACMP.
Lights not shining in common areas – If you notice that the light on a light pole is not shinning, please record the pole number and contact Center Point Energy (713-207-2222) to report the outage.

HBTM HOA board continues to offer a $50 reward to the first person who correctly identifies any person or person(s) who are tagging/vandalizing the common public areas of HBTM (signs, mailboxes, pool and playground area) if it leads to an arrest and charges filed against the vandal. To begin the process, call the constables with the name and address of the vandal. Also, call Ransom Daly at ACMP (281-855-9867) to make her aware of the issue so that you can get your reward at the appropriate time. You can remain anonymous.

Things to do around your home to improve safety
Trash cans and trash bags – Per HBTM Rules and Regulations, Section 13, “Per HTM Rules and Regulations, “Trash, garbage or other waste materials shall not be kept except in sanitary containers constructed of metal, plastic or masonry materials with sanitary covers or lids. Containers for the storage of trash, garbage and other waste materials must be stored out of public view.”
Animals and/or vandals are destroying the light-weight trash bags that some of you are currently using and spreading your garbage in the streets; therefore, the board respectfully requests that you no longer use these light-weight trash bags (particularly the grocery-type bags). Further, the board is restating the trash policy to add some flexibility. Per the rule stated above, only trash cans should be used; however, the board understands that many of you put lawn clippings into black heavy-weight garbage bags. Therefore, the following applies:
