The Crighton Ridge Homeowners Association (HOA) and its Board of Directors work closely with the subdivision's management company (IMC). IMC serves as a point of contact for community issues but does not make decisions for the community. That right is reserved for the members of the Crighton Ridge HOA and its Board of Directors. The management company serves as a central location for those who wish to contact or do business with the Crighton Ridge HOA. It remains constant through changes in the membership of the HOA. It retains copies of records and other materials for the HOA. It pays bills, contracts for services, receives payments, manages finances, prepares an annual budget, receives and directs correspondence as needed, and conducts periodic deed restriction inspections. A representative is present at all Board and Annual Meetings.

IMC surveys the community each month for residents who might be in violation of deed restrictions either knowingly or unknowingly and to also acknowledge those residents who take outstanding care of their property. Examples of some of the most common violations include, but are not limited to, as stated in the Declaration of Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions for Crighton Ridge (DCCR) "Other than during the day of trash pick-up, no trash cans or garbage cans shall at any time or times be permitted to remain on the street or in front of the lots forward of the building line so that same may be seen by a person using the street in the Property"; inoperative vehicles, boats or vans in drive or along street for extraordinarily long periods, unkempt yards, etc. Refer to the Deed Restrictions for more complete information.

The Board of Directors is comprised of three members, each duly elected at the Annual Meeting in accordance with the bylaws.

Howard Leap graduated from the University of Texas with a degree in government. He soon realized he was more of a high tech guy and has spent the last 40+ years working as an independent consultant in the field of automation engineering.

Howard and his wife, Gladys, lived in the Woodlands for 32 years before escaping to the peace and quiet of Crighton Ridge. Howard has always been interested in local government: running for City Council in Baytown in the 70s and elected to the MUD 40 Board in the Woodlands in the 80s (where he served a two year term as President). If you’re a resident in Section 3 you have probably seen Gladys and Howard walking their three Border Collies. Howard has been very active in dog rescue and is President of All Border Collie Rescue, a non-profit volunteer group, located in the Woodlands and responsible for saving more than 1,300 dogs during the last eight years.

Howard hopes to insure that Crighton Ridge stays the same tranquil neighborhood we have all come to know and love. He is all about maintaining the status quo, keeping the HOA fees reasonable and the property values high.
