We had our first Welch Plaza Condo homeowner’s association meeting earlier this month, and I was one of four board members elected from the ownership to serve the association (there’s a fifth board member elected solely by the commercial unit owner).
I’m excited to tackle this new responsibility, as it’ll be both similar to, and different from the responsibilities I had as a homeowner board member for the association at our last home. For instance, I don’t think we’ll have to deal with complaints of “people not mowing their lawn” or “homeowners wanting to put up really tall privacy fences” here in the condos!
Another thing that is pretty exciting is the amount of interest and homeowner involvement we’re seeing here — for instance, there were eight nominees for the four positions! This is FANTASTIC, as it indicates the strong interest our new neighbors have in their community.
Now, the downside of this is that with the official homeowner’s board instituted, our monthly homeowner dues have started up at last. It was a nice “dues vacation” over the summer while many of the units were not yet sold.
