  • Why aren't Pond Lots covered by HOA dues?
    Each Owner who lives on a pond lives within property boundaries that include portions of the pond. Making it the Owners' responsibility for the upkeep for the Pond. No pond in Fairway Springs is therefore part of the communal elements managed and maintained by the HOA. The HOA is aware of a 'collective' of neighbors who work with all Pond Lot Owners to acquire services and advice on pond maintenance. This 'collective' however, is privately operated by neighbors and, is not associated with the HOA in any way.
  • I oppose the budget recently approved by the Board. What can I do?
