With budget season upon us, the Crofton Meadows HOA Board of Directors would like to take a moment to inform homeowners of the role that the association plays in your community. Hopefully this will help to better understand the association’s expenses as well as what is provided to you, the homeowner, on a yearly basis. As you may know, Crofton Meadows is considered an umbrella association comprised of 12 sub-associations and has the role of governing and maintaining the community’s common areas. The Board realizes that often times it can be difficult to determine how your sub-association differs from Crofton Meadows, and what expenses and services your assessment payments cover.
To help answer any questions or confusion that you may, here are the main areas included in the Crofton Meadows HOA: the lake and walking path around it, several tot lots, much of the common area lighting, maintenance of the lake itself to include trash removal and buffer vegetation planting for water cleanliness, facilitation crosswalk installation and signs for safer travel on the path, signage at the lake and ball field, the Crofton Meadows entrance signs, landscaping maintenance of several large grassy areas and fields, and maintenance of the benches, trash cans and other amenities throughout. Crofton Meadows also has the pleasure of hosting the holiday horse carriage rides at the Crofton Meadows Elementary winter festival each year in December.
As you can see, the Crofton Meadows HOA provides a very beneficial service which helps to maintain property values, create a sense of pride in the community and also provides a place for families to come together and enjoy all of the wonderful things the association has to offer.
Check out the Crofton Meadows website to stay updated on events and new projects, obtain architectural applications and access the governing documents if need be. We hope that you enjoy living within Crofton Meadows and we invite you to contact us with any questions, concerns or ideas that you may have to help better the community.
