Thicket at Cypresswood Community HOA in Spring, TX BE AWARE!!!

A lovely town, but please be careful if you decide to move into the Thicket at Cypresswood Community of Spring, TX. They have an HOA association with no common sense and a few busybody neighbors with nothing better to do than cause problems where they don't exist. They are lowering home values by their lack of common sense and spineless ability to stand up to busybody people. They are trying to evict a family with a Vietnamese Potbelly Pig- Wilbur Sardo. The state of Texas recognizes Vietnamese Potbelly Pigs as pets and taxes them, the USDA does not classify them as livestock, but for some reason, this HOA can not tell the difference. The HOA rules are way too general and allow a group of people with too much time on their hands to stick their noses in where there is no need. If your dog is too big, or your cat in the front yard, they may foreclose on your home. So just be very careful before you buy a home in this subdivision or any other with an HOA out of control. Balance, folks, it is all about balance! Please see Wilbur's blog for more details. http://www.wilbursardo.com/
