About Our Neighborhood
Northwood Park Subdivision is an independently developed neighborhood in the Klein School District. It was established in the 1950’s with a land plat for residential homes and deed restrictions filed in 1957 that automatically renew every five years to protect the homeowners’ investment and maintain the neighborhood as a desirable residential subdivision.
Most of the three hundred homes are on large lots to accommodate the septic and well systems because the neighborhood has no sewage and water provided through a MUD District. Over the years homes were built reflecting changes in architectural styles so we do have a unique and diverse look to our older established neighborhood. Many of the long time residents have reared their children here and now look forward to entertaining grandchildren on land that holds so many memories. This has been a relatively stable neighborhood where homeowners are comfortable and look forward to retiring with neighbors they call friends from relationships that deepened over the years.
About the Civic Association
The neighborhood civic association was formed in 1983 when residents protested a mobile home that was moved into the neighborhood in violation of deed restrictions. The problem was resolved and the civic association then became inactive. Again in 2003, a similar situation came to pass and again residents united in protest against mobile homes being moved into the neighborhood. The Northwood Park Civic Association paid franchise taxes in 2004 that had accumulated over the years to the State of Texas ($2,223.19) and once again was recognized as a non profit organization in good standing with the State. Currently, we are a 501-C4 tax exempt organization, not to be confused with a homeowners association.
Civic Association Purpose and Mission
Members of the Northwood Park Civic Association are residents that voluntarily pay yearly dues to preserve the unique character of the subdivision as a desirable residential neighborhood using the deed restrictions as guidelines to take action when the desirability of the residential neighborhood is threatened by structures that are erected, or land use that compromises the environmental safety of the neighborhood.
