Welcome to Briargate!

The Briargate Community Association, Inc. is a non-profit corporation chartered under the laws of the State of Texas. Membership is mandatory and each owner automatically becomes a member of the Association upon acquiring a home in the Briargate Community. The Association is governed by the “Declaration of Covenants and Conditions” and operates according to the by-laws of the Association.

One of the major responsibilities of the Association is to protect your investment and enhance the value of your property. The sustained value of your home is of great interest to you.

The Community Association exists to establish, maintain, and enforce mutually beneficial restrictions.

If the Association functions well, it is our opinion that the lifestyle you have chosen and your property values will be maintained. Each homeowner is involved in the Association in some manner.

Annual Meeting Notice

Dear Members,

This year because of COVID safety concerns and recommended meeting size restrictions, the Briargate Community Improvement Association, like many Associations, will be holding its Annual Meeting electronically utilizing Zoom on January 29, 2022 at 10 am. This is being done in order to protect our Members’ health as many of whom who attend the meeting are elderly or otherwise at greater risk of catching the disease. Please find attached hereto, the Meeting Notice and Agenda and the Annual Proxy Ballot.

In addition to the members attending electronically or through their proxy alone, all candidates for Board Positions, members of the Board of Directors, and those serving on the election committee or as ballot counters or observers will be able to attend the meeting in person. This will enable the those in the meeting room to be no more than 20 so that the meeting can accommodate social distancing and yet also be able to conduct a fair meeting.

Voting will be conducted via the Proxy Ballot as in years past, however, those Present electronically will only be counted towards the Quorum if they have not returned their Proxy Ballot. The information for signing into the meeting is as follows:

  • If joining online, please visit Zoom.com and enter the meeting ID & password below (the password that includes letters).
  • If joining by phone, please dial the phone number provided below, and the system will prompt you to enter the meeting ID & password below (the password that is numbers only).
  • There is no need to sign up for an account, Zoom allows you to join with just the meeting ID and password.

Election Announcement

At the Briargate Annual Meeting and Election to be held on January 30th, all members attending in person electronically who do not turn in the Ballot will be counted towards quorum. We do not have a mechanism to vote electronically, but any ballot received at the clubhouse on election day before the voting commences will be counted.. Write in candidates will be deemed nominated and can also be nominated (or self- nominated) from the electronic floor. As in past years, the Ballots will be signed in on Friday January 30th beginning at 2pm and concluding around 5pm so that Quorum can be determined and the meeting can start on time on Saturday.

If you are running as a Candidate or Write In Candidate you can send a witness to both the sign in and to the ballot counting. If multiple candidates send witnesses, the number of witnesses may need to be limited for safety reasons which hopefully can be agreed upon by the candidates. Proxy Holders will be allowed to fill out unvoted proxies that arrive in the mail after 3pm to give the Election Committee the chance to segregate them. If you believe that you will be named a proxy holder please show up at the Clubhouse on Friday January 29 after 3pm or at the clubhouse prior to the meeting after 9am. If you are a Write In Candidate or believe that you will be named a Proxy Holder on mailed in Ballots, please notify the Association so that you can be contacted regarding witnesses or proxies.
