Membership Misconceptions

It is easy to forget what some in the membership and the general public perceive about homeowner associations. For example, many disputes over architectural changes may seem petty, but they have larger ramifications if not addressed at this original level. Another example: Some believe that the homeowner association boards of directors have unbridled power in perpetuity. Still another myth: Some in the membership may assume the community association industry strives to perpetuate itself. In reality, community associations exist in many instances because local municipalities, due to a limited tax base, are unable to meet the required needs of new communities such as street lighting, garbage pickup, snow removal, road maintenance and so on. Making builders and developers, and ultimately communities, responsible for common elements requires the establishment of an entity to manage these services. That entity is the community association.       WDPM
