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.

The 2020 pool schedule is being considered for revision. The Board has initiated a feasibility study to gauge the cost of expanding the days of operation from Memorial day to Labor Day 2020. We are also looking at leaving the pool open in September 2020, if the cost is not prohibitive. We will share more information as it is available.
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!
