It depends.  Is this a homeowners' type association or something of a private residential setting? Is it a civic club that is non profit or for profit? In other words, in what corporate/tax form is it?

It could be legal depending on the situation and what they are in relation to the residents therein.  So, to get an exact idea, try www.attorneypages.comand consult with a lawyer well versed in homeowners' association laws.   Check his or her record at the Texas State Bar.
