A:            Absolutely.  This is your neighborhood and your participation is encouraged.  Please let the management company know in advance that you plan to attend so we can make sure there will be adequate seating as room is limited.  Please note that some issues such as pending or current  legal actions, personnel matters and punitive actions against members of the association are conducted in executive session and closed to the general public. 

 

Q:           What do I do if I believe a violation of the governing documents or rules and regulations is taking
place?

Q:           What happens if I don’t pay my monthly dues?

A:            The maintenance and management services incurred by the Association are dependent upon timely receipt of the assessments due from each homeowner. If payments are late you will incur a $15 per month late fee.  The governing documents allow the Association to charge late charges, interest, proceed with a lien on your property, take legal action or foreclosure proceeding for nonpayment of assessments.  If the Association must spend its time and money to collect your assessment, it will harm the Association and  eventually all other owners.
