FGV Neighborhood Discussion
The FGV Homeowners Association is a Not-For-Profit corporation governed by a volunteer Board of Directors elected by the homeowners. The Board of Directors conducts HOA business in accordance with Fenwick Garden Village Homeowners Association Bylaws.
When you purchase a home in Fenwick Garden Village, the Abstract and Title company presents you with a Planned Unit Development (PUD) Rider to sign, as part of your home purchase closing documents. That makes you a member of the FGV HOA and compels you to the FGV Declaration of Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions (CCRs) of the FGV HOA. The FGV CCRs also mandate certain Design Guidelines and Use Restrictions or Rules.
Annual HOA Dues for FGV are collected exclusively to provide funding for operations and maintenance of the Gates and Private Streets that are owned by you as a member of the HOA.
The FGV CCRs were established in such a manner by the original Fenwick developer (Declarant) to compel you to become a member of the overall Fenwick Homeowners Association, and therefore compelled you to the Fenwick HOA CCRs.
Therefore, by purchasing a home in FGV, you become a member of two HOAs, and are compelled to pay dues to two separate HOAs on an annual basis.
Dues for the Fenwick HOA are collected to provide funding for operations and maintenance of the non-exclusive use common areas, that are owned by you as a member of the Fenwick HOA. These common areas include, the Fenwick club house, swimming pool, picnic pavilion, and approximately 55 acres of woodland, four ponds, with about 26 acres of grassy park area that is mowed once a week in season.
Currently the two sets of Annual HOA Dues are as follows:
Fenwick Garden Village Dues for 2017: $500.
Fenwick HOA dues for 2017 are: $350.
Overall dues to live in FGV in 2017: $850.
