Does the HOA exercise any control over street repairs?

Unfortunately no. As citizens living within the City of Dallas we are entitled to report pot holes and defects in any city maintained structures, such as cracked or subsiding sidewalks. We encourage you to report these kinds of problems. The City will respond to these requests but usually has a significant backlog, so do not delay in reporting these kinds of problems. The HOA has little direct influence over street widening projects, lane closings etc. We are however able to influence the City to employ speed bumps or street signs at key locations.

How do I find out the rules about putting up a fence?

The below City of Dallas link addresses rules on fences.

We recommend on this, or any other construction on your property, to secure a permit to build prior to starting construction. The City is within its rights to order removal of anything built that does not meet code.

Also, contact the City to confirm your property line prior to building a new fence.
