The Savoy of Josey Ranch neighborhood saw its first resident in July of 1986. Since then, the neighborhood has steadily increased in population. Although that growth has resulted in a residential development consisting of single-family homes, there was a period of time when the final makeup of the neighborhood was in doubt. A portion of the land that now makes up our neighborhood was zoned for multi-family structures (i.e., apartments). In 1988, the owner of this property requested a zoning change to not only build apartments, but to allow them to be 3 stories tall.
Understandably, many nearby homeowners were not happy about this possibility and what it may have meant for their property values. As a result, residents formed an informal neighborhood association in order to attend the City Council hearing and register their concerns. That group was successful in presenting their case to the City and this re-zoning attempt was disallowed. Eventually, this area was rezoned for single-family housing. Shortly after the victory in 1988, the association dissolved and the momentum was lost.
Years later, in 1993, interest in developing a permanent neighborhood association was revived. This time, the intent was not only to provide a ready source of unity, such as in the case of potential rezoning efforts but also to offer other benefits to improve the quality of life in the neighborhood.
The SJRNA & You
Since SJRNA's inception in October of 1993, we have provided many positive benefits for our neighborhood. All of the common areas at the entrances of our neighborhood are designed, landscaped, and maintained by our volunteer workforce! Unlike some associations, SJRNA was not created with the intent of developing a list of restrictive covenants, rules and regulations to govern the lives of our residents. Instead, we seek to create an environment where we can get to know each other and collectively achieve more than we ever could individually. Our association is a non-profit Texas Corporation which depends entirely on the efforts of volunteers who give of their time to help us provide programs that serve to create a stronger sense of community across the entire neighborhood.
Although we depend heavily on volunteers, we also recognize that families today have precious little free time to devote. When we share the work of taking care of our neighborhood equally among all residents, we can accomplish so much more!
