Welcome to the Pine Forest Property Owners Association (PFPOA) website.
Incorporated in 1978, the PFPOA organized to provide a nonprofit civic organization to serve as representatives of Owners and residents, to promote the common good and social welfare of the people of the community of Pine Forest.
Members of PFPOA elect a Board of Directors to enforce covenants, conditions & restrictions and execute the acquisition, lease, operation, management, repair and maintenance of the services and facilities of the Pine Forest subdivision.
The Architectural Control Committee’s (PFACC) main purpose is to protect the value and desirability of the properties within this subdivision.
If you have any questions or concerns pertaining to your Pine Forest Properties, please contact us.

Due to the legal controversy surrounding the constitution of the Board of Directors, Judge Carson has ordered a suspension of any Board meetings until after his judgement is rendered. We hope to have this resolved by May 3rd.
The Pine Forest Property Owners Association Board of Directors meets on the second Thursday of each month at 7 p.m., except for the months of July and December. The monthly meetings are held at the First National Bank Building, 118 Highway 71/21 W (across Hastler Blvd from HEB) in Bastrop.
Recently the County, City and BISD, which are trying to gain control over PFPOA, sued a developer, Pine Forest Investment Group (PFIG), and indirectly PFPOA without actually naming PFPOA as a defendant. In response, PFPOA has filed a motion to intervene in the suit. You may find it an informative and fascinating read.
All structures must be approved, in writing, by the Architectural Control Committee (ACC). Failure to comply with this Covenant requirement can result in SUBSTANTIAL FINES. A permit must be filed and approved, in writing, by the ACC before construction begins.
Permit fees are $500 for new homes or additions to living areas. While an approved permit is required for all structures, there is no charge for permitting additional, non-living area, structures. This includes swimming pools, fences, retaining walls, driveways, storage buildings, patio/deck additions above ground level, to mention a few.
Failure to secure a permit before starting construction will incur another $1,000 fine. If the Property Owners’ Association is forced the hire a lawyer to enforce compliance, the lot owner will be additionally charged for all legal costs with a minimum charge of $1,500 for legal fees. This legal fee applies to all enforcement actions, whether for new construction or simple compliance with the Covenants by existing homeowners.
