Northfield I & II Protected By Minimum Lot Size Area Ordinance

October 18, 2016

Earlier this summer, the Northfield I & II neighborhood was approved by City Council to establish a special minimum lot size area (MLSA) ordinance pursuant to Chapter 42 (City of Houston land development ordinance).

The Northfield I & II MLSA application submittal resulted in the Planning and Development Dept. and the Houston Planning Commission recommendation that City Council adopt an ordinance establishing a MLSA of 7,870 square feet for the 372 residential lots.

“The Northfield I & II HOA has worked extremely hard with their MLSA application to meet their minimum 55% threshold for approval,” states Council Member Green. “We still have a few more District K neighborhoods that need to apply for this special development tool in order to preserve the traditional character of their residential community.”

At this time of year, we receive inquiries regarding your annual assessment statement and when payment is due. Typically, the assessment statements are mailed out immediately after the District's last board meeting of the year.

In order to avoid penalty and interest (which accrues on February 1st), your annual assessment payment must be postmarked by January 31st.

Payments should be made payable to the District and mailed to:
Equi-Tax Inc.
Tax Assessor/Collector
P. O. Box 73109
Houston, TX 77273

Please do NOT mail or deliver assessment payments to the management district office.
