Do I have to get approval to paint my house a different color?
Yes (unless you're repainting your house using the original color)
All modifications to the exterior of your property, including painting, fences, and landscaping must be approved by the architectural committee prior to beginning the project.
The Architectural Review Form can be found under the "documents" tab
Does the neighborhood have HOA meetings?

How do I get involved with the HOA?

How do I get my pool code?
Every homeowner will receive new pool codes for the 2019 season. Green Country will mail pool codes to each home/property owner prior to opening the pool for the 2019 season. As long as you have a zero balance with HOA dues, your pool code will work. If you lose your pool code, you will need to contact Green Country.
If you're a renter, you will need to contact the landlord/leasing company for your pool code. It is the responsibility of the home/property owner (landlord, leasing company, etc) to provide tenants with pool codes (Green Country will distribute the pool codes to them at the same time Green Country provides the pool codes to homeowners).
Incidents of pool rule violations will be handled by the Board on a case-by-case basis, but it can include permanent pool code revocation and banishment from the pool area.

My neighbor keeps parking in the street, whom do I contact?
Per our covenants; all residents should park in their garages, on driveways, or if applicable in the overflow parking lots. While we can't enforce parking problems, Jenks Police can. Please contact non emergency.
Any car left in one spot on the street for more than 24 hours is subject to a ticket from Jenks Police. That also includes cars blocking mailboxes, driveways, as well as cars not parked correctly on the street.
What is a Reserve Study? (Updated)
In order to maintain and preserve market values of both the residential and the Reserve areas (there are (26) Reserve areas in Southern Reserve, which include the amenities and common areas), an HOA must develop funding plans for future repair or replacement of major common-area components, such as swimming pools, decks, asphalt surfaces, concrete areas, and much more. Thus, a Reserve Study provides guidance on how much our HOA should be putting aside monthly for reserves so it can meet the future obligations described above without requiring special assessments.
What is the difference amongst the HOA, HOA Management Company and the Board of Directors?
