Basketball Goal Complaints – Do’s and Don’ts

The Board and I have been receiving numerous complaints throughout the subdivision regarding basketball goals being kept in the street that which in turn create all sorts of issues. This post is being provided as a reminder of the following:

1) The streets are publicly owned and maintained by Harris County Precinct 4 Maintenance by everyones tax dollars.

2) Basketball goals can be a great way for kids and adults to exercise as well as socialize, however, the sport should be conducted in a manner that does not become a nuisance to your neighbors. IE: After 10PM, blocking the cul de sacs, blocking the roads, hitting vehicles, damaging property.

3) Basketball goals should be promptly removed from the streets immediately after the game has ended and stored.

4) Basketball goals should be stored out of site; not in your driveway or on the sidewalk. Based on the deed restrictions, the management company has the authorization to send deed restriction violation notices, assess fines, assess interest, and even go as far as getting the attorney involved for collections or even worse.

5) Should a homeowner choose to continue storing their basketball goal in the street, affected homeowners have a remedy to deal with the situation directly. Harris County Precinct 4 Maintenance has an online form that allows them to place a work request. Harris County will come out and physically remove the road obstruction. I have been told that they sometimes store the items pending claim by the owners and/or that they simply trash them. I myself have never utilized this method of enforcement however, if a homeowner is affected then this should be used as a last resort to resolve the problem.
