Changes for 2021
At our Annual Meeting, the Board, and members present, discussed bringing on a management company. The Board has recognized there is an overwhelming need for this. Some of the roles had become a second job to some of our volunteers and we felt it was overly burdened our volunteers that also had young families. We will be transitioning to Briden Management in Q1 of 2021. Updates to our contact information will be coming soon.
What does this mean? You still have a Board that will make all decisions. The Board will have full oversight on anything that happens in our subdivision. What goes away? The grimble and day-to-day. Many of the daily tasks like collection & posting of dues, annual IRS filings, Title letters, and calls for issues in our subdivision will first go directly to our Management Company. The cost is de-minimus and we are confident they will be able to respond more quickly, in some circumstances, since this IS their full-time job.
The HPHA Board members began a journey in 2017 to unify and bring up to date our Declarations of Restrictions and ByLaws. This came about due to the frustration of both the residents and Board members needing clarity of those documents. Board members, who are all homeowners in our subdivision, in conjunction with an attorney that is an expert in this field have completed documents that were drafted in the best interest of all residents of our beautiful subdivision.
Presently, HPHA has six different DoR for the 204 homes. Most subdivisions have a single document. How did this happen? Hunters Pointe was developed in six phases. The documents were created by the Builder of each in the 80s. Having six documents creates confusion for both potential and existing homeowners. During our review, we found conflicting language between the six documents when it should be a single standard for the entire subdivision. There was also language discussing development which will no longer happen as there is no longer any area to expand.
Further, as an example, our ByLaws do not speak to today's lifestyles and the electronic age we live in. We are no longer living in the early 80s. Many residents have strongly voiced a preference for electronic communication as well as paper communication. We have added that as a communication option as we currently have no provision for this in our outdated documents.
This lack of clarity and the outdated nature of our current DoR and ByLaws hamper both the homeowners and HPHA alike. Keeping our current documents is similar to having a thirty-year-old will.
Because our old ByLaws are very outdated and restrictive, we need to have 2/3 of the residents approve these so we can all move forward with the clarity these new documents will bring. Please ensure you vote!
