Westbury is a unique neighborhood with the majority of the 5,000 homes having voluntary dues. Only about 400 homes in Parkwest 1 and Parkwest 2 homes have Mandatory Assessments. You can read more about that below. The active participation of volunteers and yearly dues contributions help us achieve our goals and remain active in the City of Houston.
PLEASE NOTE: All homes of subject to the deed restrictions, whether the dues are paid or not. All sections of Westbury & Parkwest have ACTIVE deed restrictions.
Westbury Civic Club Dues - $60
The Westbury Civic Club has been vital in keeping Westbury a desirable neighborhood over the past 60 years. The WCC helps maintain 7 miles of esplanades, issues the Westbury Crier monthly newsletter, enforces deed restrictions, provides community events and acts as a very important liaison with the City of Houston while advocating for Westbury. In a City the size of Houston, it is important to make sure you have someone representing you and your neighborhood. The WCC has done a good job of maintaining Westbury for over 60 years.
Your contribution helps covers everything needed to operate and maintain the services we provide, this includes office rent, utilities, insurance, postage, printing, legal and professional fees, salary, etc. The WCC has one employee and all other work is done by Westbury board member volunteers, this allows us to keep our costs lower. The Westbury Green Team helps maintain 7 miles of esplanades by doing supplemental mowing, watering, tree trimming, maintaining Westbury signs and planting flowers.
Westbury Area Patrol - $325
The Westbury Civic Club has a contract with Harris County, Precinct 5, Contract Deputy Program to patrol Westbury and provide 24-hour response. This program is referred to as the Westbury Area Patrol (WAP). The WAP currently consists of three Constables (2 Deputies and 1 Sergeant) that are assigned patrol Westbury daily. The Contract Deputy Program is designed so that even when a Westbury deputy is unavailable, the next closest Pct. 5 Constable will be dispatched. Several of our bordering neighborhoods (Meyerland, Maplewood, and Marilyn Estates) also participate in the Pct. 5 Contract Deputy Program, so deputies are typically nearby at all times.
The Harris County Pct. 5 Constables are certified peace officers, licensed by the State of Texas to enforce the laws of the State of Texas. The deputies are uniformed, armed and drive distinctively marked, emergency equipped, law enforcement vehicles. The Constables provide high visibility, rapid response to emergency and non-emergency calls, vacation watches, alarm monitoring, and home security checks. The WCC gets activity reports and meets with the Westbury Sergeant regularly to ensure that residents and the WCC are kept up to date with any crimes in our area.
