The Community Association is responsible for management, maintenance, operation, and control of all common areas within the Avery Park Community. The Association is the primary entity responsible for enforcement of the community’s governing documents and also for administering and enforcing the community’s architectural standards and controls. The Association is authorized to levy assessments for common area expenses, and those expenses are shared by the membership based on the number of lots each member owns.
Every owner is a member of the Community Association and has one equal vote for each lot owned, except that there may only be one membership per lot (co-owners share all membership privileges, but can only cast one vote as set forth in the Association By-Laws).
A Board of Directors, nominated and voted on by the Association members, governs the affairs of the Association. The number of Directors on the Board is at least three, but can vary as directed by Board resolution. Under current resolution, there can be as many as five Directors on the Board. Each Board member serves for a term of one year, but may be nominated and voted into office to serve subsequent terms. The powers and duties of the Board are delineated in the Association’s governing documents .
The Board is required to hold a meeting at least once each quarter, but typically meets on a monthly basis.

General Assessment: The Board levies a general assessment each year based on its budget for the coming year. The budget takes into account both expenses for day-to-day operation and maintenance of the community’s common areas and for the long-term replacement and major repair of the community’s facilities and infrastructure components. The owners of all assessable lots equally share the general assessment levied. The general assessment is invoiced in two equal payments due on January 1 and July 1 of each year.
Special Assessment: The Board is authorized to levy special assessments to cover unbudgeted expenses in excess of the budgeted expenses for the year. The owners of all assessable lots equally share the special assessment levied. The special assessment is due on the date specified in the special assessment notification letter.
The Board may levy a special assessment against one or more specific lot owners to cover costs incurred in bringing a lot(s) into compliance with the terms of the Association’s Governing Documents or as a consequence of the conduct of the Owner or occupants of lot, their agents, contractors, employees, licensees, invitees, or guests.
The annual general assessment is due in two equal payments, one on January 1st and the other on July 1st, each year. For 2023, the total general assessments are $1,300 per assessable lot.
