Open Discussion:

  • Question:  How does HOA determine common land? 

            Answer:  Plats of lot will identify common land.

  • Question:  Could someone not pay the annual assessment because they thought they had already paid or were confused with the civic assocation dues?

            Answer:  Possibly.  Homeowners should have received a disclosure packet at sale of property.  HOA tried before to             change its name to something distinctive but was not allowed to.

  • Question:  Who should homeowners contact when they see a P.O.D.S. on a driveway for several months?

            Answer:  Call the county for any county specific violations, to include overgrown lawns. It is more effective for the               homeowners to call the county rather than board members calling the county.

  • Question:  What is the KPWCA website?

            Answer:  The email is This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Meeting adjourned:  Hearing no further business, the meeting adjourned at 8:20 p.m.
