The Island Village 2 Welcome Book

Welcome to our neighborhood and congratulations on the purchase of your home! On behalf of the Island Village 2 Homeowners Association (HOA) Board of Directors and the other homeowners of we would like to welcome you our community. Over the coming months we look forward to meeting you whether it be walking down the streets, at the pool or a community activity. The operation of your homeowners association is governed by a board of five (5) volunteer directors. The Board of Directors is elected by the community to oversee the daily functions and financial responsibilities of the Association. The Board is also responsible for maintaining members’ compliance with the established covenants and bylaws of the Association. They have specific provisions regarding what can and cannot be done on your property. Please take the time to read through the Bylaws and Covenants documents you received during the home purchase process. Copies are available on our website www.islandvillage2hoa.com.

Our community web site is an official communication channel between the Board of Directors and Homeowners. Upcoming activities, events, announcements, a community calendar, newsletter, deed restrictions and bylaws, architectural request forms, DRV forms, and volunteer committee information can all be found there.

Please take a few minutes to visit and familiarize yourself with its resources and get to know your community and neighbors through the Blog section. The web site provides ready answers to most of the questions homeowners have. If you don’t find the information you need there, the Board of Directors (BOD) and the Management Company may be contacted through the email link at the bottom of the home page. The Management Company should be contacted for service issues relating to community property; complaints regarding specific by-law violations, or questions regarding your monthly homeowners’ dues assessment. Please contact Management Company regarding issues relating to late fees etc.

Whether you are a new homeowner or an existing owner, you may have some ideas on how you’d like to improve your property. Please keep in mind, the Association has an Architectural Control Committee (ACC) to help maintain the quality of our neighborhood. Its function is to evaluate the plans for all exterior changes, repairs and remodeling (such as painting, landscaping, windows and window boxes, sun rooms, doors, decks, fences, light fixtures, trees, etc.) to ensure compliance with all Covenants and By-laws. The purpose of this review is to protect our scenic environment and maintain the value of our homes. All modifications to the exterior of your property must be submitted to the ACC for approval before any work begins. If work is started without prior approval, the homeowner risks being cited for a covenant violation and may be required to alter or remove the changes at significant cost. Below is quick at-a-glance information that you may find helpful. Please remember to log on to the website and update your account information and register your pets (see pet registration form on website). www.islandvillage2hoa.com
