Frequently Asked Questions
How much are Annual Dues?
Current annual due are $165.00 for Phase 1 & 2 (148 lots) and 155.00 for phase 3 (11 lots)
What do Annual Dues cover?
Our annual dues cover many things. The biggest expense we have is caring for our common areas. We have three common areas that beautify our neighborhood; the entry way off 27th the area at 25th and Dawes (at the irrigation bridge), and then the grassy area around the pool. This expense comes from lawn maintenance, irrigation system maintenance and repairs. We budget almost $20,000 per year for those two items. We have two insurance policies; a general liability policy to cover anything that may happen in our neighborhood and a Director and officer liability policy for our Board of Directors. Those four items are 70% of our budget. The rest of the budget is for capital improvements, power for irrigation, general maintenance and repairs and a few odds and ends.
