How Your Dues Improve Your Neighborhood
You may not realize the amount of money it takes behind the scenes to keep our neighborhood running smoothly. Here's a summary of some of the expenses the Ravenwood South Homeowners Association Board pays with your annual dues.
Every year the Ravenwood South Homeowners Association pays over $1000 for an insurance policy. There is also periodic maintenance needed for repair of our bridges on Nottingham.
A year of mowing and leaf collection in our common areas can cost anywhere between three to five thousand dollars depending on the amount of rain and the length of the warm season.
Our Beautification Committee is working on adding flowers and color to our entrances and bridges to ensure Ravenwood South gives a good first impression to visitors and potential homeowners. They also are implementing a Yard Of The Month award to encourage people to take pride in their yard.
Our Social Committee plans events that bring all of us together. Let's connect so that we aren't just "wave as we drive by" neighbors.
Your dues also help pay for postage, utilities for our common areas and allowed us to build and maintain this website so we can all be better informed and connected.
In addition to these ongoing annual expenditures, occasionally there will be larger expenses that come up and The Board will vote on using these funds to complete larger projects to improve our neighborhood such as maintenance on the brickwork for our bridges and entrances.
That's why we encourage and expect everyone to pay their $100 annual dues to the Ravenwood South Homeowners Association so that we can all pay our fair share in the maintenance of the common areas and continue to make improvements that welcome visitors and potential buyers to our neighborhood.
Sending Out Invoices For HOA Dues
At the beginning of the year, we will email out an invoice reminding everyone that it's time to pay your annual dues. That's why it's important that we have a current email address for every house in our neighborhood. Everyone who pays from this original electronic invoice notification saves us from having to mail out hard copies later.
After a few months, we will mail out hard copies of your dues invoice to any homes that still haven't paid. If you aren't sure whether you have paid your dues for the current year, we invite you to visit our Online Directory and see if you're current on your dues.
If you have any other questions regarding paying your dues, please send an email to contact@RavenwoodSouth.com.
