Neighborhood News & Events

Parking problems always exist in growing communities, especially college towns expanding as quickly as College Station. Most of the time, avoiding the headache of a parking violation is as simple as reading and obeying parking signs. 

Our goal is to keep our residential streets safe and accessible for everyone - especially emergency vehicles - while making your parking experience as hassle-free as possible.

CAI (Community Association Institute) Board Leadership Development Workshop

We will have the Greater Houston Community Association Institute conduct a Board Leadership Development Workshop on Saturday February 17 from 9:00 am to 4:00 PM at City Hall. This workshop will be extremely beneficial for HOA board members and managers, as it will cover very important topics related to HOA operations, management and responsibilities.

Please see the link below for more information and to register to attend. Cost to attend will be $55 for CAI member and $65 for non-CAI members. Each participant will receive a toolkit of support materials including manuals and workbooks. 

Registration link:

The deadline to register is Monday February 12 at 5:00 pm. Also, attached is flyer with more details about the training and registration. CAI requires at least 15 people in attendance to conduct this workshop. It is a very time intensive workshop and requires a lot of preparation for the presentation and the materials to be distributed. In addition, the presenters come from the Houston area and beyond to conduct this workshop. Therefore, if we are unable to get at least 15 people registered, the workshop will be cancelled. Unfortunately, we had to cancel the workshop scheduled in October because we did not have enough people signed up. Please pass this along to others on your HOA board that may be interested in attending.


Association contact changes

If your association has changes for contact persons or association leadership for 2018, please send the new contact person’s name, address, email and phone numbers. It is very important to have the correct contact information on file with the city. We use this information to send letters, post cards and emails to notify associations about public meetings, public hearings, rezonings, comp plan amendments, parking removals, utility work and more. Even if there are no changes to your association contacts, please let me know that as well.
