There is an area between legacy and the tollway on the north border of the Cobb Farm subdivision along the south side of Longwood street. That area is overgrown with weeds and grass and one cannot even use the walking trail there. Who is responsible for that upkeep and how do have them address it?

Itís an HOA lot, the HOA is responsible for it.

One of the Board Members for Cobb Farm HOA has been in contact with the City about planting requirements, itís in the HOAís hands now.

Thanks for your reply, Ben. I live in Cobb Farm too, and we've all been wondering about that area.

I think we all assumed it was city property (or something) because it's consumed by massive power line towers and it's outside the walls of our community.

Any idea how we (the homeowners) got stuck with paying for landscaping this huge area?

Does the HOA receive any compensation for all the power lines that would offset our having to maintain the area?

The property was platted as an HOA lot along with Cobb Farm Phase 2. The developer was responsible for the initial landscaping, but the continued maintenance (and ownership) of the lot is the responsibility of the HOA. There is also a Brazos Electric easement on the property for the overhead utility lines. Biff Harris, the Cityís Landscape Architect, has been in contact with the HOA representative who also had questions about the landscaping.
