Jennifer Ray started this petition to Walden Community Improvement Association and

"Fellow man thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself "— Matthew 19:19 (King James Version). We desire to live in a neighborhood that embraces connection and support as an extension of family and community. We petition that the current interpretation of the Deed Restriction of Article III Section 9 (see language below for deed restriction and current interpretation of such) be revised in accordance with the community’s desire to display pride and support for their children’s accomplishments and participation in school activities, as well as to show school spirit and support of the Montgomery Independent School District by displaying yard signs provided through the schools’ various approved vendors. 

The purchase and display of these signs provides financial support to the kinds of school-sponsored clubs and activities that build strong character in our youth and solid principles for life, while reinforcing a sense of community and camaraderie in our neighborhood. 

The signs we propose for approval will be provided through school vendors and will therefore be linked directly to school-sponsored and approved clubs and programs at all age levels. This provides a consistency in quality and appearance that is desirable not only to the Walden Community Improvement Association, but also to property owners who desire neat and well-maintained landscaping and yard decorations. 

What we are petitioning against:

Whereas residents are currently not allowed per Article III Section 9 of the Walden Deed Restrictions adopted on the 21st day of November, 1972: "Signs and Billboards: No signs, billboards, posters, or advertising devices of any character shall be permitted or maintained on any Lot or plot without the express prior written consent of the Declarants, except for a Builder Owner, during the construction and sales period of improvements. not more than one sign of not more than five square feet of sign space...." and whereas the current Walden Community Improvement Association includes in the interpretation of this deed restriction that “Displaying School signs pertaining to sport, accolades, or accomplishments are not permitted without the express written consent from the Architectural Control Committee” is a violation of Article III Section 9.
