Reminder: Overflow parking is not permitted at the pool area. Please park perpendicular on the road leading to the pavilion to accommodate more cars than can be adequately parked at your residence.
Mowing of Unimproved Lots
To sign up to have your UNIMPROVED lot mowed, Terramar Beach HOA asks that you sign up and pay directly with Beach Town Lawn Service(BTLS) or with your own lawn service. If you select to use BTLS, they will continue to honor the prior annual set fee of $300 for 24 mows.
To sign up for the service with BTLS, you must email BTLS directly at email@example.com or by calling their office at 409-766-0942. BTLS will then invoice you directly where you can pay by Paypal or by mail.
Do not send your payment for lawn service with your HOA dues.
This service is not mandatory but as a reminder, you are required to keep the lot maintained per the deed restrictions under 4" in height and the City of Galveston's Marshals office surveys our community weekly and is known for sending failure to comply letters to those that do not maintain their lots.
Beginning Oct. 1st, 2019 King Property Management has been awarded the responsibility to handle all Terramar HOA related issues. Questions about dues, common areas, and deed restrictions can now be directed to our senior property manager, Lisa Porter at firstname.lastname@example.org, or reach her at 713 956-1995. You may register as a homeowner online at www.kpmtx.com. This registration gives you access to your HOA account and gives you the ability to pay dues online.
An increase in the annual HOA dues was voted on and approved. The new dues amounts for 2021 are as follows:
· Unimproved Lot $300
· Improved Lot $350
· Mowing of Unimproved lots is $300 per lot, in addition to HOA dues

Water Meter - Be Prepared
When not using your home for an extended period it
is prudent to turn off the water to the home to prevent possible damage in case
of a leak or burst pipe. Owners are charged for any water that runs
through a water meter, even if there is a leak.
To prepare for a tropical storm or hurricane please turn your water off at the meter. In a storm situation where water is left on, the owner would be charged for the water. If there are multiple homes with leaks due to damage, there could be low or no water pressure for all homes.
Also in case of a storm please secure your garbage can and other loose object around your home.

If you have any construction materials at all in your garbage can the entire can will be bypassed. In addition, no construction materials will be picked up if they are stacked next to your can. Each resident must haul off any scrap building materials to a dump. Please clean and remove any lumber/building materials, etc. that has been placed on or near your property. Letâ€™s all help keep things nice.
The garbage men will not pick up yard debris such as limbs or palm leaves on vacant lots. We are having a problem with residents taking this sort of debris and putting it on the vacant lots across the street or next door to them. It sits there forever and eventually has to be removed by someone before the vacant lot can be mowed.
