  • Can I start my home improvement before I get an approval from the Architectural Review Committee (ARC)?
    No, please wait until you get an approval from the Committee.
     
    All home improvements have to follow the guidelines of the Deeds and By-Laws.
     
    We don't want any homeowner to have the expense of removing or changing a new improvement because it does not meet these guidelines.
  • How long does it take for the Architectural Review Committee (ARC) to approve my home improvement project?
    The Architectural Review Committee has 30 days from the day they receive the request to approve or deny the home improvement.
     
    You may receive notice from the Committee to provide additional information for review, please follow through on providing this information as quickly as possible, as we don't want to hold up the start of your project.
     
    Please do not start any of the improvements until you have received an approval from the Committee.
     
    The goal of the Committee is to make sure that any improvements made to our homes is in keeping with the Deeds and By-Laws of our community, and will not adversely effect the value of the homes and the community.

Misc
  • Am I able to use Fireworks in the Barker Lake Community
    Although it is against our Deeds and Covenants to set off Fireworks in the Barker Lake Community, it is not illegal to set of fireworks in un-incorporated Harris County.
     
    This unfortunately is a rule which we have to delegate to our Homeowners to be responsible and do the right thing.
     
    Excessive "Noise Nuisances" after 10pm can be reported to the Police.
     
    Please be safe and be courteous to your neighbors and their homes.

Towne Lake Development
  • I am experiencing problems from the Construction at Towne Lake
    A few of our Homeowners which share their property line with the Towne Lake sub-division have been contacting us to report that they are experiencing some “sink holes” in their back yards. (Sept 2013)
     
    We would also like to recommend that if you are experiencing this problem on your property that you contact Towne Lake and Harris County directly with your specific case so that they can help you to resolve this issue.

    We have been advised that the best people to call are:
    Harris County Inspector: Bill Hunter 713-316-3564 (we recommend starting with Mr. Hunter)
    Harris County Flood Control: Joel Mendez 713-316-4869
    Towne Lake Builder: Kent Puckett 713-690-0000

    Hopefully through using our Harris County contacts we will be able to resolve this issue very quickly.
     

Website
  • I am not able to see/access the links on the website
    With the upgrade of Windows Explorer to IE10, many websites and unfortunately ours have elements and links which are not compatible with this new version.  Our web service is currently working on a fix for this.
     
    As the Web Master for this site, I am currently using Mozilla Firefox to access and update our website.  This has resolved all the issues I have with our website, as well as other websites.
     
    Here is a link to download the latest version of Mozilla Firefox for free.  This link is from Yahoo who are moving away from IE10, and recommend Mozilla Firefox to view their websites.
     
     
  • When I click on the Members section, it asks for a password
    The Barker Lake website is seperated into two sections, one for public access, and one for Homeowners.
     
    To have access to the Members section, you need to be a current Homeowner of Barker Lake, and register for access to the website.
