School buses, fire trucks, trash haulers -- all such necessary municipal vehicles are having a hard time driving down some of the streets in the Kenswick community. Since Kenswick is a mature community, many of its beautiful trees have matured as well. Of course the trees native to this area grow laterally as much as they do in height. The result is a beautiful canopy, but it is also in impediment to larger vehicle traffic when it spreads over the street.
To address this situation, the Board of Directors of Kenswick H.O.A. has stipulated that such interference into the roadway area constitutes a nuisance to the community, and that it will be pursued as a violation of the deed restrictions.
Many of our neighbors have already received a notification stating:
Trimming of tree overhanging street is required. The Board of Directors has ruled that trees overhanging the street have an adverse effect on school buses and fire trucks moving through the community.
The Board urges you to respect this requirement in the event you receive such a notification.
The Board has also been advised that the Harris County Community Assistance department (http://www.hcp4.net/cad/index.htm) may offer trimming over the street on an individual basis. However, each individual owner must request the service for his/her own property in order for the Community Assistance Department to respond.
