HOA Dues
Posted on Dec 31st, 2014

The HOA board will present the 2015 budget at the annual meeting and there will be opportunity for questions and discussion.  In the meantime the Board would like to provide a brief explanation of why the dues have been increased by $50.

The dues were set when the neighborhood was founded in 1996.  This is the first time that the dues have been increased since the neighborhood’s inception.  The dues should have been raised in the past five years but the Board decided last year to make every effort to cut operating costs in an effort to determine the minimal annual budgetary needs.  As you are aware, all the expenses have increased since 1996 when the neighborhood was founded but the dues have never increased to meet the rising demand of annual operating expenses.  At the beginning of 2014, meetings were held with the landscaping company to make sure that excessive amounts of water were not being utilized on the green space.  We sought new insurance options to save money on annual premiums.  Even with all the costs cutting that the Board did achieve during the year, there were no funds left for the reserve allocation.  The Board has deferred some needed maintenance and landscaping projects that will have to be addressed this year that will require funds that are not met by the annual budget.  The reserve allocation was established to pay for expenses outside of the normal everyday operational expenses such as pool care, landscaping and grounds, electricity, water, etc.  Our neighborhood is nearly twenty years old and as it ages, we have repairs that are normal for a neighborhood of that age such as pool house/pergola repairs, pool decking/shell, fencing, trees/shrubs, pumps/filter systems, etc.  These expenses vary in costs but we need the reserve allocation to pay for these unexpected expenses when they occur.  Otherwise, we would have to have special assessment levied to pay for the costs.  The majority of the projects in the past have been funded by the reserve such as the interior shell of the pool, landscaping projects, irrigation updates, monument signage repair, replacement pool furniture, etc. Our goals are to manage the HOA dues wisely to ensure stability of property values and maintain a reasonable reserve. 
 
The Board is empowered to increase the dues by an amount not exceeding 50% of the previous year's dues.  An increase exceeding 50% requires a vote of 75% of the homeowners.  This is laid out in Section 7, Paragraph 2 of the HOA Declarations.  We look forward to discussing the details further at the annual meeting.
Thank you.
The Board
