Committees

The Baldwin Square Homeowners Association, Inc. has a number of committees that enable the member residents to be involved with their community.

Committees: Members and Duties

Townhome and Townhome Site Modifications, Construction, Installations and Alterations:
Any and all changes to the exterior of your Townhome or the Townhome Site require the approval of the Modifications Committee. A homeowner is required to submit an application describing the modification and no work should commence until the application is approved. This application can be emailed, faxed or mailed to Midtown Management Corp.

The Modifications Committee has created, and the Board has adopted, BSHA Design Guidelines which will assist a homeowner with proposed changes. The Amended and Restated Declarations of Covenants and Restrictions for Baldwin Square (Deed Restrictions) supersede the Design Guidelines and have exclusive jurisdiction over any modifications, additions or alterations made to Townhomes or Townhome Sites. Modification Request Form

Parking Regulations:
Parking regulations were adopted by the Board of Directors of the Baldwin Square Homeowners Association in April, 2006. BSHA Homeowners were apprised of the regulations in a letter dated May 1, 2006. Vehicles left unattended, parking or encroaching on any common area, including, but not limited to, the common driveways, landscaped areas and lawns, are in violation of the regulations and are subject to towing.


Water, Association and Maintenance Fees

Water and Sewer charges have gone up damatically over the last 10 years. On April 21, 2010, Houston City Council (click here for pdf) raised water and sewer rates by nearly 30 percent on an average single-family household over three years. Read more about these increases at www.HoustonWater.org.

Water is the Association's largest expense item - with over 1 million gallons consumed annually in residential and irrigation use. Common Water Meter Charges are calculated using Actual Residential Charges from Q4/Y1 to Q3/Y2 for each community, divided by units per individual community (Total: 111 units), + any anticipated rate increase.

Report leaks immediately and conserve water whenever possible - we all pay for it!

General Information

The maintenance fees for the Baldwin Square Homeowners Association, Inc. vary by Community. A listing of each Community is under the "About" page. The methodology has a simple basis: 1) allocate common costs equally (property management, trash, insurance, administration fees), and 2) track and invoice actual costs incidental to each Community and/or size. As example, gated communities with fencing, landscaping and irrigation pay more than non-gated communities without landscaping and/or irrigation expenses. Additional Assessment Fees are assessed for common water meters and resulting usage for each Community listed (111 units). This is why it is important to investigate leaks immediately. Individual Water meters are billed to and paid for by respective property owners by CoH without BSHA involvement (54 units). A summary of the 2016 Assessment per Community can be found in the Annual Meetings Archive (above).
