WHY DO I NOT GET MAIL ADDRESSED TO ME AND INSTEAD TO THE CURRENT HOMEOWNER?

An encumbrance to the RA / HOA is placed upon the Certificate of Title to the house, therefore it’s addressed to the current homeowner of the house.

WHY AREN’T THE ANNUAL PACKAGES E-MAILED OUT TO RESIDENTS?

Due to the nature of email there is no way to guarantee that emails are delivered to their intended recipients. Also because email addresses can change frequently it is impractical to keep an updated list of email addresses for 2000+ households.

  1. Hello,
    I just got to know about the HOA fees from the signs requiring payment placed in the neighborhood and have lived in the community for over three years. I believe a better job should have been done by the builders to explain this during the process of building. My lawyer did not explain this to us as well.
    That aside, now that the community is growing and residents are mostly young families with kids. Should we be expecting to see more amenities in future? Say a Tennis court, community swimming pool, out door or indoor basket ball court etc. This will create options for residents in the community instead of going else where for those amenities. If the cost is spread across every house hold, it will be easy to achieve. If every household contributes $150 multiplied by 2000 + households this can be implemented. Nolan hill is a great community to live and added amenities will definitely make it even more attractive.
    Thanks
