Lochmere contains eight (8) Sub Associations.
These Sub Associations all belong to Lochmere Master Association as do all homes within the community. These Sub Associations each have their own legal documents: Articles of incorporation, covenants, & Bylaws. They have their own elected Board of Directors that are voted in by the membership within the Sub Association. They collect assessments to cover the costs of their own community.
The Sub Associations consists of condos, townhomes, and single family homes.
Most Sub Associations are managed by different management companies while others are self-managed.
The document below gives details of each Sub Association to the best of our knolwedge.
In 2017, the Lochmere Board of Directors determined that a strategic plan for the Lochmere Community is beneficial to ensure continuation of high quality management of the Association for current and future residents.
Strategic plans contribute to long-term stability and include a vision of where and what we want to be in the future. Planning maximizes use of resources and coordinates the efforts of our management and committees, with clear responsibilities and measurable outcomes.
Board Member Cecelia Davidson headed up this project by surveying active Lochmere committees and local realtors for input to this planning effort. Our objective was to select and agree on common strategies, goals and priorities, and direct our resources appropriately.
As you will no doubt see, a lot of work actually goes into managing our Association, by the Board, management company, committees, volunteers, and its contractors.
HOA assessments are determined by the Board of Directors each calendar year. Increases greater than CPI must be approved by the voting members of the Lochmere Community. Lochmere's management company mails out the invoices for assessments to each homeowner by December.
Lochmere's 2018 Annual assessments are set at $591.00.
Assessments go toward the maintenance and upkeep of common elements such as common area landscaping, trails, lakes, playgrounds, bridges, benches, trash enclosures, dog waste stations, pools, tennis courts, clubhouse, office building, common area insurance, management fees, contributions toward a Reserve Fund, etc.
Prompt payment ensures that our community can continue to maintain the beauty of our lakes, trails and recreational facilities.
