When you do work on your property, City of San Antonio work permits and inspections are required. If you do work without a permit you can expect it to cost big buck$ to either file for the permit and pay a fine or return your property to the previous condition. It also can cause a lot of issues when you try to sell.

SHORT TERM RENTALS (STRs) NOT ALLOWED IN GUILBEAU PARK
The Board of Directors has approved a policy prohibiting Short Term Rentals (STRs) in Guilbeau Park. They are recognized as commercial operations if less than 30 days (excluding month-to-month lease extensions) and therefore prohibited to operate within the confines of the Association according to the Deed Restrictions of the Association, paragraph 7.17, Prohibited Activities. This action was taken after the City of San Antonio deemed Short Term Rentals a commercial business operation and requires the payment of Hotel and Motel tax.
POSSIBLE DRUG ACTIVITY IN GUILBEAU PARK
There have been reports of suspicious activity in our neighborhood. These reports are believed to be drug related. Some evidence of drug use has been found in the neighborhood. All residents are asked to call the police non-emergency number to report suspicious activity at (210) 207-7273.
STAY IN TOUCH
We are on Facebook and also our website, www.GPOA.org, has current information for and about our Association. You can also send your email to Dominick Dina at firstname.lastname@example.org and asked to be placed on the email list for the Association. No SPAM or solicitations – just GPOA related information. Thanks neighbors!
The 2022 pool schedule is Saturday May 28th for the first weekend. The following weekend the pool opens for the season.
NEW CITY FINE FOR ILLEGAL COMMERCIAL PARKING IS $500
The Guilbeau Park Owners Association is a deed restricted neighborhood. Our restrictions prohibit barnyard animals. This includes chickens and of course, roosters.
We understand there may be some confusion given the City of San Antonio had just modified their ordinace in regards to chickens. Their action does not apply to our neighborhood.
There have been several reports of chickens and roosters in our neighborhood. Members are advised you will be receiving a letter from the Association if you are in violation of our deed restrictions. Everyone is asked to please comply with our deed restrictions to maintain the property values of our homes. Thanks neighbors!
