Frequently Asked Questions
Will, there be HOA? What are the HOA dues?
Yes, there will be a homeowners association. Think of the association as an entity that cares only about unit owners and protecting their investment. And also as the entity that saves you a lot of time doing repairs and replacements to the exteriors so the development holds its appeal and value. HOA dues are assessed monthly, are based on Unit square footage, and are available at any time for review.
Will there be an HOA board made up of elected board members?
Yes, all Unit owners are eligible to serve on the board. The board ensures management iof the association’s affairs is conducted by the owners themselves.
Do I have to mow my own grass, dump garbage and snowplow?
Most grass is within a common area, like a playground or park. So no. But If your Unit has a large side or front yard, like those on the Bluffs or Highliner Row, then yes, you may have to cut some grass. You have to deliver your refuse to common dumpsters close to your unit, and the only snow you need to remove is on your own deck, entry, or patio.
Can I launch my boat for free?
Yes, all unit owners launch for free as long as it’s for personal use. If a Unit owner has a charter business, he can launch but will need to pay a fee for the added commercial use. The fee will be set by the association.

Yes, you can invite your friend
Can I placemy house on air BNB?
Yes, within some community governed standards. These standards ensure a Units owner’s reasonable ability to rent, but also the ability of the community to enforce common community standards—for example, cleaning up pet waste, or limits on noise or outdoor music.
Can I sell my house whenever I want to whomever I want?
Can I paint the color of my house the color I want exterior?
No, you cannot. Exterior siding is designed for longevity, and does not require painting for the most part. So the color of the siding is meant to complement other surrounding units and the whole project.
