To protect the value of your property in Star Harbor the City Council needs your help. In 2019, the Texas Legislature passed House Bill 2439, a state law prohibiting local
municipalities from passing ordinances preventing the use of certain types of building
materials. For the most part, municipalities throughout Texas now must allow any
construction material that is permitted within national standards.
Earlier this year the City Council and interested Star Harbor property owners research
and considered the need to amend deed restrictions established by the founders of Star
Harbor in 1965. Deed restrictions, often called “restrictive covenants”, are contained in a
deed and limit how a piece of real estate can be used and what can be built on it. Most
often developers, or in this case, the founders of Star Harbor include restrictions not
covered by city ordinances. The City Council has determined the deed restrictions for
the City of Star Harbor should be revised to better protect resident’s property value.
Texas law requires sixty percent (60%) of city lot owners to adopt a deed restriction
change or modification. For lots owned by more than one person the signature of only
one lot owner is required to approve the petition. An owner of multiple lots need only
sign once for all lots.
To show your support, you need only to sign the petition available at City Hall.
Due to damage on the ramp, the City of Star Harbor boat ramp will be closed until further notice
