A Property Owners Association (POA) is a corporation that serves as the governing body of a residential community, such as a single-family development.  POAs are created to protect the community’s property values by developing and upholding its covenants and bylaws, which define the actions homeowners may take with their properties, as well as their behavior within the community.  Since our POA is incorporated, it is subject to statutes governing homeowners associations and not-for-profit corporations, as mandated by the state of Texas. All community homeowners are mandatory members of the POA, and must follow the community’s guidelines to ensure a harmonious environment and lifestyle; failure to comply can result in fees and legal action.
