Notice of Board Member Appointment

Due to the recent resignation of a PFPOA Board Member the BOD will be appointing a new board member in the near future. If you are interested in joining the PFPOA BOD team please fill out the application here and it will be emailed to the BOD. Please, be patient with us throughout this process, as this is a new way of appointing a board member. Due to the unexpected nature of the vacancy, and the need for an additional board member in a relatively short time frame your BOD feels this is the most reasonable approach to give the vast majority of our neighborhood a chance to serve as a director. If you have any questions please email us at pineforestpoa@gmail.com. Thank you for your time. Please note that the regularly scheduled meeting on June 9th will be held at 8:15PM at First National Bank of Bastrop. We hope to see you all there!

Regular Board Meetings

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.

Golf Play and Membership

For those of you who are interested in golf, you should try out the Colovista Golf Club, which is now re-opened.

BEFORE BUILDING ANY STRUCTURE, BE AWARE

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.

Wait! Before You Plant a Pine Tree, Read This
