Oak Forest is a deed restricted neighborhood.
Membership Dues are voluntary but Deed Restrictions are not! It takes $$ to enforce. Please join today!
The Architectural Committee was established by the Oak Forest Bylaws and prescribed by the original deed restrictions. Its purpose is to review all construction and renovation plans that are normally submitted to the City of Houston for the permitting process. The submission and review process is for required for new construction and modifications of existing homes. For more info consult your section's deed restrictions, call the OFHA hotline at 713-688-6342 or send your plans to firstname.lastname@example.org. Plan review may take 2-3 weeks.
As some sections of Oak Forest have deed restrictions that differ from the City of Houston’s requirements, and to avoid unnecessary revisions between architect/contractor and the City, construction documents including complete plans, elevation and survey in order for the Committee to be able to see the scope of the project and where the addition or new construction project lies within setback and building lines, should be submitted to the Architectural Committee and approved prior to being submitted to the City of Houston for permitting.
Plans not submitted for review prior to City of Houston plan approval or construction will be red tagged (construction halted) until the plans have been reviewed and all objections remedied prior to approval by the architectural committee.
