Note that plans should be reviewed with the architecture committee before obtaining a building permit. For further information, please contact the Crestwood Architecture Committee at for the Crestwood subdivision and for the other area subdivisions in our neighborhood.



"Before you begin new home construction or home improvement project, please consult your civic association regarding possible deed restrictions. You may not purchase a building permit without signing a sworn deed restriction affidavit stating that you are aware of and agree to abide by deed restrictions pertaining to your project. If you knowingly or unknowingly sign the deed restriction affidavit under false pretenses, you could be subject to municipal court citations, fines, and the removal of the structure or violating portion thereof."

The Crestwood Glen Cove neighborhood is comprised of five separate subdivisions, each with its own set of deed restrictions, which are posted below.  Some of these deed restrictions contain very old offensive and unenforceable language limiting certain races and religions in our neighborhood.  These clauses do not reflect the values of our community.  We are working at the state level to remove these types of clauses from all deed restrictions in Texas.

The original deed restrictions contained here are scanned copies of old documents.  For your convenience, we have had them transcribed so they are searchable.  The searchable deed restrictions are provided here for the convenience of the residents only, and the Crestwood/ Glencove Civic Club makes no representation as to the accuracy of the provisions.  There may be inadvertent errors or omissions and therefore, please consult the original deed restrictions to the extent you intend to rely upon their content.

In an effort to minimize crime in our neighborhood, everyone is asked to report any suspicious behavior to the Houston Police Department.  All criminal activity should be reported to HPD.  This helps the City determine where to place deterrence resources.  We have very little crime in our neighborhood, largely due to the private security patrol.  Membership is optional - please support your neighbors and help protect your family and property by signing up. Only those contributing will receive the assistance in case of an issue at your property.

For information on the private security patrol serving the Crestwood/Glen Cove neighborhood, please email: or download these documents.

Automated household garbage is picked up every Monday, except holidays.  Residents should use the 96-gallon black cart.  Yard trimmings must be placed in compostable bags, and not in the black cart.


Our neighborhood receives curbside recycling services from the City of Houston.  Automated recycling is picked up every other Monday, except holidays.  Residents are asked to use the 96-gallon green cart provided by the City for all recycling materials.  For more information on garbage pickup, call 311 or go to the City's trash website page.


Carts should be placed curb side with the wheels against the curb no earlier than 6:00PM Sunday and no later than 7:00AM on Monday.  Empty carts should be removed from the street by 10:00PM on Monday.  Carts should be spaced about 3 feet apart to facilitate automated pickup by the collection truck.  Truck drivers will not relocate carts away from obstructions.


The City of Houston provides heavy trash and tree waste pickup services the first Wednesday of every other month starting in January, except holidays.  Tree waste collection occurs every other month starting in January, and heavy trash collection occurs every other month starting in February.  Tree waste is limited to 8 cubic yards, and heavy trash items include furniture and appliances that are too large or heavy for residential collection crews.  For more information see the City web site: Heavy Trash  Organizations exist that can find a new home for working appliances and electronic devices that you may no longer need: RecyclingAlternatives


Beware:  Putting items out before the Friday before the collection day is a violation of a City of Houston ordinance and may result in a $50-200 citation against the homeowner. Please see the following link for Monday-A schedule and list of acceptable items: Recycling


Please contact our Recycling Chairperson, Rebecca Marvil at with questions or suggestions.
