How is The Trails Homeowner's Association (THOA) organized and managed?
The The Trails Homeowners Association is a non-profit organization. The basic purpose of the Association is to govern The Trails in accordance with it's governing documents such as the Certificate of Dedication and Bylaws.
The Association is governed by a Board of Directors, elected by the members of the Association. The Board of Directors of the Association has the power and duty to administer the affairs of the Association in accordance with the governing documents. The Board is also responsible for the ongoing operation and maintenance of The Trails.
Is membership in THOA Optional?
No. Any person who becomes an Owner at The Trails�automatically becomes a Member of the Association. Membership is mandatory. It ceases when the person ceases to own property in The Trails. Every Member is subject to the requirements of the governing documents. These requirements include, but are not limited to, payment of dues and assessments, building requirements, prohibited activities and maintenance requirements.
Does THOA have annual fees and/or asessments?
Yes. Every owner is required to pay a yearly assessment imposed by the Association. These funds are used for the Common Expenses of the Association. These expenses are incurred in the administration, management, maintenance, and operation of The Trails.
The assessments are due January 1st of each year and past due on the first day of March. Annual assessments together with interest, costs and reasonable attorneys' fees shall be a continuing lien on the lot and the personal obligation of the ownership of the lot at the time of the assessment if they are not paid when due.
The Treasurer of the Association will make every reasonable effort to provide you with a statement at least 20 days in advance of the assessment due date. However, failure to receive a bill does not exempt you from paying your assessments.
Failure to pay assessments may result in a lien on the delinquent property and legal action to collect the past due amounts. While the Association prefers not to take these actions, they are required under the terms of the Declaration.
Please see our F.A.Q.'s and Documents Section for more specific information on dues & assessments.
Does the THOA have regular meetings?
There will be at least one meeting of the Association annually in February or March as specified in the By-Laws or as established by the Board of Directors.

I'm interested in re-roofing and/or repainting my house or making additional modification or addition to my property. What are the procedures necessary to be in compliance with the rules & regulations?
Roofing materials must be an approved product. See the Documents section of this website for guidance. It is recommended that you ask the Architechtural Committee for approval prior to signing a contract for roofing, to avoid delays or additional costs. Although there is not a specific covenant/rule that addresses repainting your house/trim, it is advisable that the approval of the Architectural Committee be obtained if the current, identical color is to be changed. The reason for this is to avoid any possible "noxious activity" which might occur, if for instance, someone painted a "rainbow" on their house. "Noxious activity" is listed under "Restrictions" in the Covenants. All other modifications/improvements undertaken on your home and/or lot must be approved by the Association's Architectural Committee prior to begining construction. It is in your best interest to request Architectural Committee approval well in advance of construction so that delays in construction are minimized.
