Welcome to our neighborhood
Congratulations on the purchase of your home!
The operation of your homeowner’s association is governed by a Board of volunteer Directors. The Board of Directors is elected by the community to oversee the daily functions and financial responsibilities of the Association. The Board is also responsible for maintaining members’ compliance with the established Master Deed, Bylaws and Rules and Regulations of the Association. They have specific provisions regarding what can and cannot be done on your property. Please take the time to read through the Master Deed and Bylaws documents you received during the home purchase process. If you did not receive these, copies are available to homeowners upon request.
As a new homeowner, you may already have some ideas on how you’d like to improve your property. Please keep in mind, the Association has an Architectural Control Committee (ACC) to help maintain the quality of our neighborhood. Its function is to evaluate the plans for all exterior landscaping, repairs and remodeling (such as painting, decks, fences, trees and bushes, replacement roofs, etc.) to ensure compliance with the Bylaws as well as the ACC Design and Development Guidelines. The purpose of this review is to protect our scenic environment and maintain the value of our homes. All modifications to the exterior of your property, including landscaping, screens, play equipment, fencing, satellite dishes, and more, must be submitted to the Architectural Control Committee for approval before any work begins. If work is started without prior approval, the homeowner risks being cited for a Bylaw violation and may be required to alter or remove the changes at significant additional cost.
Information on some of the questions many new homeowners have is located on the Commonly Asked Questions page to get you off to a smooth start. Again, welcome to The Villages of Oscoda, HOA community! We look forward to you falling in love with this neighborhood as much as we have. We know you’ll find our neighborhood is a great place to live and we encourage your participation in our activities and functions.
