The Kempwood North subdivision is a small group of 232 houses nestled in the heart of Spring Branch North in Houston, Texas. The neighborhood was built in the mid to late 60's just east of Rosefield and south of Clay Road. The neighborhood reflects the diversity of Spring Branch and is a mix of all ages, cultures and origins.
The Kempwood North Civic Association is a non-profit organization that relies on membership dues and donations to fund activities and help preserve our property values. One of the ways we seek to achieve this goal is through Deed Restrictions. Since Houston does not have comprehensive zoning ordinances, as many cities do, the deed restrictions serve much the same purpose. The enforcement of these rules is not intended to be dictatorial or restrictive of one's rights, but serve to maintain the value of our property and provide a pleasant place in which to live.
In 2023, meetings will be held quarterly at John Knox Presbyterian Church on Gessner across the street from Aldi at 7:00 pm on the second Tuesday of the month. All residents are encouraged to attend. Typically there is a speaker and we will discuss a wide range of topics of interest to our neighborhood. Tuesday meeting dates in 2023 are Jan 10th, April 11th, July 11th and November 14th.
The Civic Association annual dues are $35 plus an additional $10 for mosquito control services. The dues are allocated as follows:
$15 for maintenance of the entrances on Clay and Kempforest
$20 for the general fund to pay for quarterly meeting location space, events, signs etc.
$10 for mosquito control
This is a very reasonable amount compared to mandatory HOA maintenance fees in many neighborhoods. The dues form is located on the Documents tab of the menu.
Dues can be mailed in by check to:
PO Box 431521
Houston, TX 77243-1521
or brought as cash or check to our quarterly meeting.
Checks should be made out to KNCA.
KNCA has reordered the rear window stickers for residents’ cars. Unfortunately, burglaries have increased in our neighborhood due to the new construction and so many people coming through the neighborhood on a regular basis. We recommend a sticker for each car in your household, especially if you park on the street. Cost is $1.00 for each sticker. They will be available at all quarterly meetings. If you would like to purchase stickers, please send a message to firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, address and the number of stickers you need. KNCA highly recommends that every resident place a sticker on the back windshield of all resident cars. This will identify you as a KN resident.
October 2022 Crime Update: Multiple Cars Broken Into
Please be advised that there have been a number of car break-ins lately in our neighborhood. It seems to be happening late at night or very early morning. Criminals are coming in with flashlights and going through cars parked outside to see if there is anything worth stealing. If vehicles are unlocked they are rummaging through them to take anything of value, if the vehicle is locked and they see something they want they are carefully breaking the glass so as not to set off the car alarm and then stealing the contents. We have had multiple incidents reported on both Springview and Springmont.
Please be vigilant about taking all items out of your vehicles at night and making sure vehicles are locked. Park in a well lit location. If at all possible make sure you have bright lighting outside of your home and over your garage at night and if space permits park your cars inside your garage. Please report any incidents to the police and notify the association if you have been victimized and we will work to make sure everyone in the neighborhood is aware. email@example.com
Deed Restriction Reminders
With the passing of time, Kempwood North is getting a lot of new neighbors. Even though we have all the Deed Restrictions on this website, people get busy and either forget or haven’t taken the chance to read them. For everyone, we DO have Deed Restrictions. They are posted on a separate tab on the website and they ARE enforced.
If it appears that a homeowner is unaware of a deed restriction, we send a friendly reminder letter to the home owner. For a subdivision of this age (1967), we look really good. The reason we still look good is because of all of our neighbors keep their property looking great. We ask everyone to review the Deed Restrictions posted here on the Deed Restrictions tab.
Let us know if you have any questions. We will be happy to clarify.
