Information Clarification of Change in Maintenance DUES : The Board researched surrounding subdivisions prior to the removal of multi-lot discounts. The subdivision can not maintain and make improvements under the old maintenance fees. Our research found that other subdivisions DO NOT give multi-lot discounts, In fact a few subdivisions also charge road maintenance fees. WE have NO current plans of adopting road maintenance fees. A notice was sent out to multi lot owners prior to the change. We will work with any property owner who needs to pay out their dues on a monthly basis. ( Please contact the office to obtain a payment agreement) Please remember you must be current on all dues in order to use the pool, trash dumpster & pavilion. Illegal use of these facilities is considered a violation of the restrictions which may result in legal action. UPDATE on the collection of delinquent dues : We’ve been successful in collecting delinquent dues. The Collection Company continues to work with us to collect past dues. This process is working! Dues are collected twice a year payments are due by January 31st and July 31st A $20.00late fee will be assessed after the due date.
