UNDERSTANDING THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN HOME ASSESSMENT FEES AND HOA MEMBERSHIP DUES
Posted on Sep 14th, 2021
HOME ASSESSMENT FEES:
Greater Pines home assessment fees are collected annually with your property taxes by the Lake County Tax Collector. According to the Bylaws of the Greater Pines Homeowner’s Association, Inc., these mandatory fees are for neighborhood operating expenses. They are intended to pay electricity bills for street lamps, landscaping, general repairs and maintenance of community areas that include the pool & cabana, tennis courts, tot-lot, water retention areas, entrance monument walls and the wall along Hancock Road.
HOA MEMBERSHIP DUES:
Membership in the Greater Pines HOA is voluntary. Applications for membership may be submitted to the HOA Board of Directors along with $20 annual dues payment, which is due at the beginning of each calendar year.
Monies collected from the membership dues are used for social activities in the community. Prior activities include ice-cream socials, movie nights, community-wide garage sales, neighborhood breakfast, pool parties and the very popular Annual Family Summer Fun Days and Winter Holiday Parties. Additionally, HOA members are entitled to vote for your Board of Directors at the Annual Meeting. These special events are designed to promote and foster neighborhood involvement.
COVID-19 caused the cancellation of most 2021 neighborhood activities. We hope to bring them back as soon as safely possible.
Membership applications and dues may be mailed to the HOA at 14925 Greater Pines Blvd, Clermont FL 34711. They can also be paid on this website via paypal. You can reach the HOA by calling (352) 404-7878, or Email at GPHOA@cfl.rr.com
