New neighborhoods have been developed by Big Canoe Company, LLC that have or have had landscape elements, fencing, statuary, ornaments and a general level of features and maintenance not consistent with the community wide standard and which are more expensive to maintain and repair.
The cost to maintain the community wide standard is a common expense that should be shared by all owners in accordance with the assessment provision of the Declaration, while the added cost to maintain unique features and provide higher levels of maintenance in the aforementioned new neighborhoods which exceed the community wide standard is a cost that specifically benefits the owners in those areas and is not a common expense.
The Board of Directors recognizes the owners of lots in Wildcat, Choctaw Village, The Bluffs and other pending developments may desire to maintain the common property at or approaching the level established by Big Canoe Company, LLC at their own expense;
The POA will offer area or neighborhood groups the option of funding increased levels of common property and right-of-way landscape maintenance at their expense subject to the landscape levels being consistent with the character of Big Canoe and within the levels provided as the respective areas were and are being developed. Funding will be through individual property owner contracts with the POA and all work will be arranged and managed by the POA to meet the specifications included in the contracts. The specifications for the respective neighborhoods will be established by the POA with input from the respective owners. No property owner is obligated to participate in providing this supplemental funding and owners may choose to participate at different levels to achieve the total needed to fund the specified work. If funds collectively received from such contracts fall below the amount required for the scope of the specified work, the work will be terminated and unused funds returned to the participating property owners.
New neighborhoods are areas developed by Big Canoe Company, LLC since 1998.
