Summary Information for Members

Holiday Park Homeowners Association (HPHA) is a close-knit, single-family, residential
community of 120 homes spread over eight circle streets. We are fortunate to be owners of a beautiful nine-acre private park which includes tennis and basketball courts, a swimming pool, and two children’s playgrounds.

To make Holiday Park work as a community requires some effort from all its residents. Upon purchasing a home in Holiday Park, all homeowners agreed to By-laws and Declarations of Covenants and Restrictions. These can be found in the Member Area on the Holiday Park website at www.hpha.org. In addition, the following reminders cover the common questions and issues that arise.

Please get involved!

HPHA needs everyone to volunteer at least a little of their time. Please come to
a Board meeting or ask your Circle Representative what you can do. The current Board
members/Circle Representatives and Board meeting dates, as well as a great deal of other information about HPHA, can be found under “HPHA Board” tab.

Architectural Control Committee

Please seek approval from HPHA’s Board/Architectural Control Committee prior to erecting structures or making other alterations to fences, walls and/or the exterior of your property. For a small project, please submit a hand-drawn sketch that indicates the height and other dimensions as well as the location on your lot, and the materials to be used for construction. For modifications to your house or garage, more formal architectural or engineering drawings may be required. Submissions can be given to your Circle Representative or any Board Member.

Please Maintain Your Property

Please mow, edge and undertake other yard maintenance, as well as paint and maintain your house and other structures, fence, mailbox, and driveway as needed. Residents are also expected to abide by City of Dallas codes concerning maintenance and use of their private property.

Park Common Area

  • The park closes at 11:00 PM to groups. No one should use the tennis and basketball courts after 11:00 p.m. HPHA is subject to the Dallas Curfew Ordinance. “…if children under the age of 17 are out, they must be accompanied by a parent or guardian after 11:00 p.m. (Sunday – Thursday) or midnight (Friday – Saturday). The curfew ends at 6:00 a.m. each day.”
  • When walking your pet, dog or cat, in the park, please keep your pet on a leash and clean up after your pet.
  • Group Use Policy – if a resident wishes to host a party/group (10 or more non-residents) prior approval must be obtained from the Board and the Group Use Policy adhered to. Groups are not to exceed 25 non-residents including children. There is a non-refundable fee for hosting a party/group in the park.

Common Parking Areas

  • No loitering by HPHA members or non-members in the common parking areas.
  • No trash or debris is to be placed in the common parking areas.
  • Nothing other than a motor vehicle is to be parked or placed in the common parking area without prior written approval from HPHA’s Board.
  • Unused and/or junk motor vehicles are not to be parked or stored in the common parking areas. A vehicle is considered to be stored in the common parking areas if it remains longer than one week without being driven in the common parking area.

Boats, Trailers, Recreational Vehicles

  • Boats and trailers are not permitted in HPHA unless stored in a garage.
  • Recreational vehicles, (RVs), and motor homes are not permitted to park on the streets, common parking areas, driveways or lots, unless the RV is housed in the existing garage and not visible from the street. However, as a temporary condition such vehicles may be parked overnight on the street or driveway for a period not to exceed 7 consecutive days or 14 days per calendar year.

Trash Collection

  • Brush and bulky objects (such as tree limbs, shrubbery, bagged leaves, furniture, appliances, and mattresses, i.e., items that will not fit in the trash wheel-cart) are collected from the front curb of each resident’s property. These must be placed at the front curb of your home. Please do not place these items in the common parking areas. These items are collected during the first full week (Monday through Saturday) of each month. No materials may be placed out front earlier than the Thursday before the collection week. There is a fine for violations.
  • The grey trash wheel-cart must be used for the weekly trash pick-up. The blue wheel-cart is used for recyclable materials. Trash and recycled materials are picked up on Tuesdays. Please store both wheel-carts back away from the street, (adjacent to or behind the front of your house), during non-trash / recycle collection days.

Signs

Please do not display signs other than:

  • Advertising your property for sale or rent, (a sign of not more than five square feet), or
  • Promoting a political candidate or a garage sale, (not more than five square feet and is not displayed for more than 15 consecutive days).
  • Signs indicating involvement in a school activity, (not more than five square feet).

Security

  • Please be vigilant. If you see something suspicious please call 911 and let your Circle Rep know.
  • Much has been done to enhance the security of our neighborhood, and especially the park common area, however young children should not be left unsupervised in the park. Children should be supervised just as you would in a public park.
  • Holiday Park has a Security Officer who patrols random evenings.
  • Holiday Park also has a “Volunteers in Patrol” (VIP) program composed of HPHA members who volunteer their time to patrol the circle streets. If this is of interest to you, please consider becoming a VIP volunteer.

HPHA is a member-run organization, administered by a Board of Directors comprised of neighbors who are committed to the wellbeing of our neighborhood. Each circle street has a Circle Representative who also serves as a director on the Board of Directors, and on the Architectural Control Committee. HPHA works best when many members are involved. Please consider volunteering to help with some aspect of running HPHA.
