To maintain SouthSide Village Property in an attractive, safe and environmentally sound manner that ensures consistency and upholds property values, village oversight is coordinated by a Homeowners Association (HOA). Property owners automatically become members of the HOA when they purchase a townhome here. Our property management company, Cedar Management Group, coordinates certain functions for the community, including financial statements, dues collection and other administrative matters.
SouthSide Village homeowners have many opportunities to participate in the direction and leadership of the neighborhood, through board of director positions or on volunteer committees. An up to five-member Board of Directors is elected by property owners. Terms are staggered over three years. A board president is elected each year by the other board members, along with the secretary, treasurer and other offices as needed. In the interest of transparency, minutes of board meetings are kept by a secretary and distributed regularly to all homeowners. Community members may volunteer to serve on several standing committees, which currently include insurance, grounds maintenance, website and welcome. Other committees may be created as needed.
A gated, planned-unit development, SouthSide Village is composed of 37 duplex townhomes that include 74 single family residences. Individual owners are responsible for maintenance of their units with the exception of roofs and siding, which are maintained by the HOA. Monthly dues cover operating expenses (such as landscape maintenance, security gate, termite inspection, biannual gutter cleaning) and three primary reserve funds: roofing, siding and roads. Roofs are currently being replaced under a multi- year roofing project, according to age and condition of roofs as determined by a reputable roofing contractor. From time to time, a special assessment may be levied as needed for major projects such as road repair or drainage maintenance.
SouthSide Village, like other HOAs, has rules and regulations that owners must observe. More than guidelines, these policies provide a necessary framework for the safe, consistent and efficient management of our community. Our mountainside location, narrow roads and shared buildings mandate certain restrictions on speed limits, parking, landscaping and pets, as well as architectural changes to the structures themselves. It is helpful to remember the value of these standards in keeping our community safe and in order, thereby maintaining a special neighborhood with strong curb appeal that helps maintain property values.
Our residences are townhomes, not condos, which is an important distinction when it comes to purchasing homeowners insurance. Townhome ownership is comparable to ownership of a single-family home in that you personally own the entire structure and the land it sits on. In the case of SouthSide Village, the difference is that each unit shares a firewall with another residence.
SouthSide Villagers come here from many different backgrounds and bring with them a broad range of skills and experiences. By tapping in to those talents, we are able to maintain a strong visual aesthetic, as well as an efficient and effective operation. Our HOA board members and committee volunteers are our neighbors. This spirit of cooperation accrues to the benefit of maintaining our property values. We support each other through our mutual interest in keeping SouthSide Village the safe, attractive, desirable neighborhood we are proud to call home.
