Kempwood Civic Association


The Kempwood subdivision in Houston, Texas had its beginning in 1964 when 144 homes were built on the north side of Kempwood just west of Campbell road. Many of the first residents were first-time homeowners just beginning to raise a family. The neighborhood is now a congenial mix of all ages, cultures and origins.

The Kempwood Civic Association was founded to promote a safe and attractive community in which to live. One of the ways we seek to achieve this goal is through deed restrictions. Since Houston does not have zoning ordinances, as many cities do, the deed restrictions serve somewhat the same purpose. The enforcement of these rules is not intended to be dictatorial or restrictive of one's rights but serve to maintain the value of our property and provide a pleasant place in which to live. Please make yourself familiar with these rules; you may also obtain a copy from one of the board members.

Board Meetings

Board meetings are held at 7:00 pm on first Tuesday of each month at Fire Station 77, Kempwood at Gessner. Residents are encouraged to attend. View meeting dates on our Calendar.


NOTE: Due to the Covid-19 pandemic in 2020, in-person board meetings have been suspended.


We have updated and modernized our web site to serve you better. It is now more readable on mobile phones.


The Civic Association annual dues are $35.00. These dues are allocated as follows:

  • $20 for maintenance of the esplanade on Kempwood Drive;
  • $10 for mosquito control;
  • $5 for the general fund.

This is a very reasonable amount compared to mandatory HOA maintenance fees in many neighborhoods. Please join our group when one of your neighbors comes around to collect dues.
