Message from the Board

 

The Upper Brazos Property Owners Association (UBPOA) is a non-profit entity established for the sole purpose of helping the residents of the Brazos Canyon area to enjoy the beauty, wildlife and community of what is truly a refuge in the wilderness. We recognize that no surroundings can be enjoyable and safe without the hard work of others to promote these conditions and work in harmony with the environment.

The Board of Directors affirms the following goals:

  1. Preserve the beauty and sanctuary of Brazos Canyon for both people and wildlife.

  2. Enable the enjoyment of recreational activities such as hiking, fishing, photography, snowshoeing, and cross-country skiing.

  3. Provide a sense of community

  4. Maintain open communications with and support other associations such as Brazos Canyon Volunteer Fire Department, Brazos Mutual Domestic Water Consumers Association, and Enchantarama Water Association within the Canyon.

We are proud of what the UBPOA has done in the past and we look forward to future accomplishments. Please watch for announcements about our upcoming annual meeting, SR 512 cleanup and picnic. UBPOA wants to encourage your membership in our Association. It is the best way to receive valuable information about our community.  If you have questions, concerns, or suggestions, please email a board member.
