"A neighbor is a person who can get to your house in less than a minute and takes two hours to go back home."

Neighbor Interaction

Homeowners Association or Neighborhood Network?


A homeowners association (HOA) is a formal legal entity created to maintain common areas and enforce private deed restrictions and covenants.
  • Membership is mandatory for all property owners within the boundaries of the association.
  • Members are required to pay established maintenance and carrying fees.
  • Homeowners associations have the legal authority to enact and enforce maintenance and design standards above and beyond those required by City ordinance.
  • Homeowners associations are corporations with formal bylaws and a governing board.
A neighborhood network (NN) is a voluntary association of homeowners, renters, and property owners where there is no formal homeowners association.
  • Participation is on a voluntary basis for residents living within the neighborhood area.
  • There are no required fees or dues to be paid.
  • Neighborhood networks do not have any legal authority to enforce covenants.
