Dear Homeowners, our HOA needs YOUR help!!
For the past five years, most of the current HOA Board members have served this community by volunteering their personal time to help with the maintenance and overall care of this neighborhood. We feel that we have made positive strides in many areas including:
· Managing and paying for county-directed work on storm water ponds while avoiding special assessments and significant dues increases for homeowners
· Reducing the number of delinquent homeowner accounts
· Hiring a consistent and solid landscaping firm to maintain common areas
· Offering electronic payment of annual dues
· Ensuring that the HOA is in strong financial health
As a result of these efforts, we feel that the Board is in good shape moving forward. We respectfully request that a few homeowners be willing to continue these efforts. Board membership no longer requires a lot of personal time. In addition, the Board is rarely needed to address the “dreaded” serious (and potentially contentious) issues with other homeowners.
The current HOA members feel honored to have served as your HOA Board for the past 5 years (and even 10 years for one of our members)! Now that a solid foundation has been established, we are ready to hand the Board responsibilities over to other capable individuals who are willing to support our neighborhood. If there continues to be a lack of interest in serving on the Board, then we have 2 options:
Option #1: The Board will propose hiring a property management firm to relieve some of the burden on the current Board members. Initial estimates show an annual increase per homeowner of $75-$100 above the current dues depending on the services procured.
Option #2: The HOA will cease to exist and the Board will move towards a formal dissolution of the HOA. Upon dissolution, there will be no more upkeep of the common areas, which will likely result in lower property values.
Neither of these scenarios is ideal, so we request that you seriously consider volunteering some of your time. We would prefer to maintain the low dues that we have all experienced over the years, and we would love to keep the HOA managed by those who live here and have all of our best interests in mind. BOTTOM LINE: WE NEED YOUR HELP!
If you are interested, please come to our annual meeting, and we will address any questions or concerns regarding the duties and responsibilities of the HOA Board. Or, you may contact us directly if you would like to discuss further.
We have one more request. WE NEED YOUR EMAIL. If you have not been receiving emails from the HOA at firstname.lastname@example.org, please send us an email so we have it on record.
