I can't believe my neighbors installed a play fort next door. That would never have been allowed in my old subdivision.
The Woodlands Residential Standards are the result of hours and hours of hard work by your elected representatives and other professionals trained in architecture, construction and design. They try to strike a balance between the needs of the individual families, the neighbors, and the neighborhood as a whole, and while they meet most residents' expectations, they may be different than the restrictions you left behind. Check out Section 2.9 of the Standards regarding play structures and give us a call if you see something that you have questions about. If the improvement you see has been approved and does meet the Standards but it does not meet your expectations, your comments will be passed along to your elected representatives and will be taken into consideration the next time the Standards are revised. For a copy of the Standards, call 281-210-3973.
