Recent HOA Board Abuses: Is this a growing pattern in our community?

KHOU (and several other local Houston t.v. stations) reported on this recent action by the FCCA which encompasses parts of Missouri City and Sugar Land:


MCC Comment: Apparently several local politicians are remaining silent on this as some community members feel abandoned by them. This appears to be a pattern in the FBC communities from lawsuits in Meadowcreek, in Missouri City to New Territory (Sugar Land) and now First Colony....what are our state legislators doing, if anything, to clean this up and how do the developers and their political ties to many of our area politicians come into play?

See this related piece for more at:

"...Some First Colony residents have begun circulating a petition against the project, and said they would hire an attorney to file a lawsuit to stop the project, if necessary.

Additionally, residents have questioned whether the First Colony’s development company is using its clout to push construction of the park as a way of making one last profit from the development.

According to information provided to FortBendNow by residents, the development company, Planned Properties Development [sic Planned Community Developers] Ltd., still has the legal power to “take over the board” if they want.

“They still retain the voting power to take back the board, if they so desire. This gives developers and their vendors a great deal of undue power to press for undue projects,” according to an e-mail message being circulated among residents. “The clinch here is they will lose their (legal) status on Jan. 1, 2012.”

Some are calling the water park project a “last-ditch effort” for developers to profit from the master-planned community.
Kim Mason, organizer of a petition effort opposing the water park, said more than 70 percent of the residents in First Colony’s Edgewater Bay and Edgewater Gardens neighborhoods oppose the project being built in their area..."
