1. What is the purpose of our homeowner's association?
The HOA exists primarily to maintain the property values of our local community through enforcement of our neighborhood covenants, procuring and overseeing maintenance within the neighborhood, and providing community activities for unifying the neighborhood.
2. How does the OCPA spend the money collected through homeowner dues?
Over half of all dues collected are used for lawn maintenance, including mowing, edging, weed control, and water. Other expenses include electric utility for the entrance to Central Park, insurance, legal fees, and costs associated with events. All remaining assets are held in certificates of deposit for future use.
For a detailed breakdown of all expenses and revenues for the fiscal year, you may request a YTD Financial report from the board. Please use the Contact Us page to request a copy of this report. You may direct your inquiry to the OCPA Treasurer.
3. Can I review the OCPA records?
Yes, records are available to Central Park residents. Contact the OCPA Secretary to view minutes, insurance policies, covenants, or for records questions. Contact the OCPA Treasurer to view financial records. These records may not be removed from the homes of these individuals, but are available for viewing. In most cases, electronic files are available by email. There will be a processing fee for copying and mailing documents.
4. What should I do if I see a covenant violation?
We have a Violations page available for this exact purpose. Please fill out the fields on the form, including the address and description of the violation, and submit it to the OCPA. All violation notices are completely confidential. Once a violation has been submitted, a member of the board will address this matter with the designated homeowner as soon as possible.
5. How do I get access to the pond?
It is no secret in our neighborhood that pond access for many of our residents is inconvenient. The developers did not provide for pond access between any homes in our addition. The Board of Directors have made several attempts to permanently acquire land or easements from homeowners in several of our cul-de-sacs for the purpose of providing access, but these efforts have not been successful to date.
The Board will continue to pursue this issue and would be happy to talk to any homeowners willing to grant pond access through their property. Some compensation may be available for this purpose.
With the widening of N 129th E Ave, changes to the sidewalk have occurred near the pond. At the time of this FAQ, the construction project is ongoing and any changes to the pond will be noted here.
