Frequently asked questions

What is an HOA?


An HOA or Homeowner Association is a legal entity created to manage and maintain the common areas of a community. In Key Ranch at the Polo Club, these "common areas" consist of things like our landscaping, front gate entry system, streets and roads. HOAs can consist of single family homes, condominiums, or town homes and are typically setup by the original developer of the community with a set of rules called "Declaration of Covenants, Conditions, and Restrictions" otherwise known as "CC&Rs". One of the primary functions of the HOA is enforce and ensure that these "CC&Rs" are adhered to by the individual homeowners. The guiding principles of these regulations are normally to help maintain property values and the quality of life within the community.




Who manages our HOA?


The Key Ranch HOA is managed by an HOA member-elected volunteer board of property owners, dubbed the Board of Directors. The current Board of Directors consists of Michelle Coffey (Preisdent), Kimberly Runyan (Vice President), and Joe Lednicky (Secretary/Treasurer). The Board may be reached by emailing keyranchhoa@gmail.com, or, in emergency cases, by their personal contact info available to residents in the HOA Directory.




What do the annual dues cover?
