Parkwood Hills Annual Meeting Feb 1, 2017
Posted on Jan 12th, 2017
Annual Community Meeting
 
Please mark your calendar for the next annual Parkwood Hills Homeowner’s Association meeting which will be held Wednesday Feb 1st 2017, 7:00-8:30 p.m. at Liberty View Elementary School.  As the value of your home is probably your largest single investment, by supporting the Homeowner’s Association through attendance at the annual meeting, volunteering, and dues, you are helping to protect the value of homes in our subdivision, including your own.
 
The Board plans to provide updates on many items and will have presentations from each of the volunteer committees.  We would like to keep the meeting within the scheduled timeframe, and would like to recognize additional discussion topics in advance of the meeting.  If you have any specific agenda items for discussion, please e-mail them to our management company at BryanCharcut@camkc.com prior to January 19th.
 
The 2017 operating budget will be distributed on the website shortly but we wanted to confirm the annual due will remain the same as the last several years and be $350. 
 
PWH will be holding elections for four open Board Positions on the 7 member Board.  If you are interested in serving on the Board, please complete and return the attached Nomination Form.
 
Homeowner’s Association Dues
 
The annual due for 2017 is $350. The annual assessment is due without any additional fees by March 15th. The Homes Association Board has dedicated significant time and energy determining how we can improve our annual dues assessment.  We recognize that January may not be the best budget timing for all families, so we have strived to provide more options to our home owners while still meeting our financial obligations.  As a result, we are offering an expanded payment period with a flexible rate structure for 2017.  The rate structure will be broken into four tiers as outlined below:
 
Date
Rate Structure
Amount
Postmarked 3/15/17 or prior
Payment Tier 1
$350
Postmarked 3/16/17 - 4/16/17
Payment Tier 2
$375
Postmarked 4/17/17 - 5/17/17
Payment Tier 3
$400
Postmarked 5/18/17 – 6/18/17
Payment Tier 4
$425
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
The PWH HOA annual dues payment is utilized to maintain and improve our neighborhood for the items such as:  common ground lawn care, entryway maintenance, swimming pool, landscaping, social activities and neighborhood improvements.  The majority of our expenses are incurred from late-spring to early-fall in support of these efforts.  As a result, all payment tiers options will close on June 18, 2017 and all 2017 HOA dues should be paid in full by that time.
 
Please make your check or money order payable to Parkwood Hills and mail to
C/O Community Association Management 2633 McKinney Ave #130-502 Dallas, TX 75204-2581
 
Dues that are not paid in full by July 1, 2017 will result in the initiation of the lien process.  Reminders will be sent per the scheduled timeline.

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
