there are many more responsibilities and activities needed to foster a successful and enjoyable neighborhood for all the members of an HOA, and ultimately help maintain and improve our property value. Our HOA has a Board of Directors and several committees dedicated to meet these goals and a management company that provides the daily commitment needed to support the business of the Association.
The Board of Directors are volunteers from within the community as directed by the Association By-Laws. A complete list of the HOA Board powers and duties can be found in the Association By-Laws. The Board consists of a President, Secretary, Treasurer and four at-large members. The three committees serving the community are the Design Review Committee (DRC), the Social Committee and the Communications Committee. The descriptions and membership of these committees can be found here.
The Board of Directors utilizes a management company to manage the day-to-day business of the Association. The manager serves at the pleasure of the board. The manager has a long list of duties that can be summarized as common area maintenance, business and finance and covenant compliance. Common area maintenance includes oversight of fountain operation and maintenance, mowing and landscaping, flag replacement and holiday lighting. Business and finance includes invoicing, contracting, bill payment, insurance and indemnification and financial reporting. Covenant compliance includes DRC requests, notification of violations and monitoring. If you have a specific concern you can contact the manager via email.
Here in the Auburn Hills 13th, 14th, 15th & 16th we have a unique structure that can often be confusing to understand. First of all, our Association is very large, consisting of multiple Auburn Hills neighborhoods including ‘The Legends’, ‘The Meadows’ and ‘The Villages’. When the development is complete our HOA will include over 400 homes. In addition, residents of this community are members of two Associations, the HOA and the Auburn Hills Master Swim Facility Association (or ‘Pool Association’). Our HOA operates independently of the Pool Association except that the President of the HOA serves as a member on the Pool Association Board. The budgets, financials, management and decisions of the Pool Association are completely differentiated from the business of the HOA. The advantages for homeowners are that the HOA can focus on HOA concerns and the Pool Association can focus on the pools, playgrounds and clubhouses. Furthermore, being in a Master Pool Association allows access to four different pools and two unique clubhouses. For additional information about the Pool Association you can visit their Website here.
The Board serves at the pleasure of this great community and looks forward to contributing to the growth and development of West Wichita’s best neighborhoods.
