Property Review - A review of exterior property areas will be conducted during May or June to identify both Association and owner maintenance responsibilities. Notices will be sent to owners where upkeep items are in need of attention. Please observe the completion date in the notice and contact us for clarification or additional details.

Storm Water Fee - The Northeast Ohio Regional Sewer District (NORSD) has started to bill for storm water services, as proposed in notices sent to property owners 2012, after a 4 year delay that was settled by the Ohio Supreme Court. The flat fee is based on one of three residential tiers. Customers qualifying for the Homestead Fee and/or Cost Savings Programs will also qualify for savings.
