How much are the HOA dues? When are they due?
Currently, our HOA dues are $265 annually. They are due every year by April 1st, and you can set them up to be paid automatically, right here on our website. If you need help setting this up, please let us know.
What houses are covered under this HOA?
The below map, which outlines the area that this HOA governs will serve as your guide. Not all houses in Central Park are covered under our HOA, only those that are in The Park and The Village areas.
Are there any open lots available to build on?
Yes, currently the open lots are being offered by Banister Real Estate. It is best to give them a call, to discuss your options and get a lot purchased.
I live in the Landing or the Villas, who do I contact for my HOA?
Please refer to the City of Bel Aire website - belaireks.org - under Community for a complete list of all HOAs and their directors.
How can I get on the HOA board and what are the qualifications?
We are always looking for members to serve on the CP HOA Board. To qualify for a board seat, members must be current on their HOA assessments, make all reasonable efforts to attend meetings and carry out their responsibilities, and set an example for all members by following the covenants, rules and restrictions of the Association. Elections are held once a year at our Annual Meeting in February but we also need members willing to fill any vacancies that may occur throughout the year. As Board-directed committees are formed, we need members to fill those seats, too! We welcome your ideas and the commitment to serve our community!
How do I contact the Central Park HOA Architectural Design Committee (ADC)?
You can email your Project Approval Form (available on the website) to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
What are the differences between covenants, bylaws and guidelines?
Bylaws are mutually agreed upon rules for the HOA, while covenants are long-term promises to do something or refrain from something. Our covenants primarily discuss topics such as land and external structures. The bylaws discuss topics pertaining to meetings, members, due payments, delinquency, liens and other rules of this nature for which we are to abide by. The design guidelines and landscaping guideline documents are meant to be examples of what exterior features should look like in the neighborhood.
What kind of a fence can I put up? Does it need to be approved?
Can I fence in a green electrical box that's in my yard?
The large green cubes are Evergy electrical junction boxes. According to Evergy policy, if it will be fenced in, you must leave 10 feet clear in the front of it (the side with the lock on it is the front), and 3 feet around the rest of the sides. They also prefer a 5 ft gate nearby, or removable fence sections if no gate.
If I want to repaint my house, do I need to get the color approved?
Any major exterior work, painting included, should first get approved by the HOA design committee. Please complete the Project Approval Form that is found in Public Documents, along with color swatches, and send it to the Architectural Design Committee at email@example.com.
What should I do if I need to purchase a new mailbox?
The approved mailbox for The Park and The Village is the Heavy Duty Rural Mailbox, style #4850, in black. You can buy these online at: mailboxes.com and on Amazon or you can buy them at your local Home Depot store.
What should I do if I need to replace all or part of my mailbox post?
The HOA has purchased a number of single replacement posts, one-sided posts and two-sided posts. The HOA purchased these in bulk at a discount. They are available to you at the discounted price - just send the HOA Board an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. In general, it is up to each homeowner to keep mailboxes and posts painted and sealed as the original paint fades and deteriorates.
What can I do once I set up my HOA account log in ? Why would I want an account?
