Welcome to the ACIA Homeowners website
The homeowners of the ACIA are proud that Atascocita is one of the fastest growing residential neighborhoods in the nation. Atascocita is bordered by Lake Houston and is home to many parks, golf courses, Country Clubs and over 15 established neighborhoods. Our community is a diverse and thriving mix of neighborhoods. We have excellent schools and outstanding medical facilities within 15 minutes of Atascocita.
The ACIA is comprised of the following: Pines of Atascocita/Atascocita Shores I, which has beautiful water front lots, a beautifully wooded park as well as swimming and tennis facilities for the residents, Atascocita Shores and Pinehurst of Atascocita neighborhoods which also offer beautiful lake and water front lots, as well as beautiful homes within this elegant tree lined neighborhood. We also offer a large marina, tennis courts and swimming pool facilities for its residents. Amenities throughout the ACIA are available for all residents.
The Atascocita Community Improvement Association welcomes anyone who is currently a resident or any prospective residents to contact us with any questions.

The ACIA board of trustees is seeking funding from Harris County MUD 132 for construction of additional amenities for the Shores and Pinehurst recreation areas. Items include pavilions, ADA compliant walkways, a jogging path, and children’s playground equipment. All plans are contingent upon MUD approval and approval is not guaranteed. Items receiving approval would be acquired over a period of several years. A special “Thanks” to all residents that participated in the Recreation Survey posted on the ACIA website. Your contribution was invaluable. Click on "Development Plan" in the right-hand column to view pictures of planned items.
MUD 132 Board of Directors approved a donation of $53,000. to purchase/build a pavilion with an ADA walkway in the Shores Park for 2014.
The ACIA Board of Trustees has a contract with a local home builder to sell 16 undeveloped lots in Pinehurst Section 8. The lots face onto Powerscourt Dr. in the area that lacks a thru street. These lots were platted in the original plat of Section 8 and can only be developed with single family homes subject to all the restrictions and covenants of ACIA. The lots were originally deeded to ACIA from a homebuilder that didn’t want to continue development. In the current condition, the individual lots are worthless because they all lack street access and utilities. As a grouping, the lots have value to builders that have funds to continue the paving of Powerscourt Dr. and install drainage. Funds received from this sale will be added to the Reserve Fund and improve the financial future of ACIA.
Volunteers are the life's blood that keeps our community a great place to live and enjoy. Volunteers are needed for positions on the Architectural Control Committee (ACC), Safety Committee, Nominating Committee, Social Committee (egg hunt, July 4th parade, National Night Out), and Recreation Committee (pool/parks/marina). Just a few hours of your time can make a difference in the quality of our neighborhood. Please contact any Board member (email address located on the website) or call Sterling Association Services at 832-678-4500 for more information or to volunteer.
Don’t Dump On ACIA
The ACIA must expend considerable funds paying contractors to pick up and dispose of green waste (dead tree branches) that are dumped on common areas. Dumping of green waste has also happened on the petroleum pipeline running through the sections located on the south side of FM 1960. Dumping degrades the environment, is an eyesore, and is difficult to clean up. We should all take our obligation to protect the neighborhood environment seriously. The trash contractor, Waste Management, will pick up branches that are bundled and less than 4 feet in length. Local business, Dirt Cheap Mulch, will accept branches of any length for a small fee. Costs for all services are continuously rising. Please help keep our neighborhood attractive and clean.
Please do not dump debris in the gully (drainage) areas. Harris County will levy fines for cleanup. There have been several complaints in this area.
This is against the law, creates rodent and insect habitats, and causes our beautiful Lake Houston to be full of trash and decomposing material that causes algae blooms killing aquatic life. Localized flooding of our homes could also occur as a result of the debris clogging the area drainage. Also, several million residents in Houston drink this water from Lake Houston! We should all be more respectful of our environment.
If you witness anyone dumping, get the license plate number and a description of the vehicle if possible and call the Precinct 4 Constable Dispatch at 281-376-3472. ACIA will prosecute for dumping on private property.
The Pinehurst Park tennis court has a new surface and nets are back up. An access key is need to access the tennis courts and can be picked up for a small fee at Sterling Association Services, 562 Kingwood Drive, suite 13, Kingwood TX 77339 (832-678-4500). Also to aid our neighborhood players the pool restrooms are available for you convenience using the pool key fobs. Pool key fobs are also available at Sterling Association Services. If you already have your keys go and try the new courts and enjoy a game or two.
Mr. James Longoria has graciously volunteered to be Chairperson of newly formed Tennis Committee. He’s an avid player and looking for other tennis enthusiasts to play tennis in Atascocita. Anyone interested should contact Mr. Longoria by email: firstname.lastname@example.org
