FAQ: What is a Community Association and the difference between a resident's/homeowner's associations ?
A community association is an organization formed by the residents of an area:
- to manage and direct its social and recreational activities
- to act as an intervener in civic matters (planning and development)
- to plan, develop and maintain community facilities and amenities
- membership is a voluntary $30.00 per household per year
A resident's/homeowner's association is a compulsory organization created by a land developer:
- to manage and maintain the "marketing" amenities (entrance signage, ornamental parks and ponds, boulevard landscaping and building) of a development that the City will not accept responsibility to maintain
- to manage and maintain amenities such as lakes and golf courses
- membership is compulsory and the requirement to pay an annual fee is collected by the association through a caveat on title
