Cinco Ranch is a master-planned community spanning more than 5,000 acres developed by Newland Communities. The first residents moved into Cinco Ranch in 1991. In 2005 the developer passed control of the Association over to the residential property owners formally known as the Cinco Residential Property Association, Inc. (CRPA). Today there are 8,740 residential lots in Cinco Ranch which are governed by over 100 neighborhood volunteers who make up the Association's Board of Directors, Neighborhood Representatives, and various committee members. A vast majority of these resident volunteers have been elected by their neighbors, while a few others have been appointed to help the Association in various capacities. There are often unfilled positions on the committees and most committees have periodic meetings that are open to members of the Association. In addition to all these volunteers, while the Association has no direct employees, the Association contracts with several companies to help professionally manage and maintain the common area property. Finally, the CRPA works with two other associations to round out a full complement of services: the Cinco Landscape Maintenance Association, Inc. (CLMA) manages and maintains landscaping along major thoroughfares; the Cinco Commercial Property Association, Inc. (CCPA) manages the commercial properties located within Cinco Ranch.
After completing development of Cinco Ranch northeast of Katy-Gaston Rd, the developer purchased more land and continued developing another section of Cinco Ranch which is informally known as Cinco II and is governed by a separate Homeowners Association (HOA).
Cinco Residential Property Association, Inc. (CRPA)
The CRPA is a non-profit corporation established and governed by Articles of Incorporation, a Declaration of Protective Covenants (aka: deed restrictions; or covenants, conditions, and restrictions), and By-laws, all of which are filed with both Fort Bend and Harris Counties.

Neighborhood Representative Committee (NRC)
Chair - Janie Dale
Vice Chair - Todd Schutte
Secretary - Cristen Wiatr
This is a group of volunteers elected to represent the neighborhoods in Cinco Ranch. For purposes of representation, the Association is divided into 34 representative neighborhoods. Each neighborhood can have as many as three representatives on the NRC. One being the primary voting representative and the other two are alternates in the absence of the voting representative. The representatives are elected on even numbered years by homeowners within each neighborhood, and strive to make communication easier between the residents, the Management Company, and the Board of Directors.
The Neighborhood Representative Committee meetings are held on the 4th Monday of each month at the Associations Office located at 3022 Windemere Park Lane, Katy, TX 77494. Meetings are open to all Cinco Ranch property owners and begin at 7:00 PM unless otherwise posted.
The NRC has several important responsibilities including the election of the Association's Board of Directors and the amendment of Association governing documents: by-laws; and covenants. Another important function is to make recommendations to the Board on various issues that affect the community. All representatives are encouraged to participate on Board Committees and NRC Work Groups. Click here
