An Important letter from the SHX POA President

This letter will go out by "hardopy" U.S. Mail in the next few days. I have taken the libert to highlight certain items that I think readers should pay particular attention to.

Dear Neighbors:

We will be holding a POA meeting on April 21 from 7-9 p.m. in the Encore Bank Building at Tangley and Kirby (5815 Kirby Drive) to cover two very important issues: our security patrol service, and our deed restriction amendment drive.

We will have a presentation from the Patrol Service. This is your opportunity to find out what this service provides for you, and how important our support is to its existence.

We will also discuss our deed restriction amendments, and make plans for completing the petition drive to get them ratified. If you have any questions about the value of these amendments to your property, this is your opportunity to discuss them among friends.

We would also like to encourage you to join the SHX Yahoo group. The Yahoo group can be found at by selecting Groups, then typing in SHX. You can set up a Yahoo ID very easily if you don’t already have one, and join the group. This will give you email updates about neighborhood issues from lost pets to Rice University and City of Houston news. It averages an email a week, if you’re worried about too much mail. The group also has current copies of all relevant SHX POA documents for your use.

Also, we have a Blog at that offers timely information and easy access links to key documents.

Please also send your email address to me at I will see it gets into our mailing list, which is only used for SHX business, never shared with anyone, not even other neighborhood associations. Since mailing is one of our POA’s biggest expenses, this will help significantly.

Please plan to attend our meeting, and join our move to electronic communications.

Your POA needs your support!


Ann Hightower,
