Southampton could use your help!
Our community could use someone like you! Please consider stepping up to help out the neighborhood that you live in! Below is a sketch of what it is like to serve on the ARC, HOA Board, and Neighborhood Watch.
HOA Board - The 5 person board meets about every 4-8 weeks to handle the business of the neighborhood. Responsibilities of the board range from the management of the pool and clubhouse, working with the neighborhood management company, listening to homeowners concerns, maintaining an attractive standard of property care throughout the neighborhood to insure homeowners' property values are protected, and managing financial resources of the neighborhood.
ARC Committee - Members receive requests from neighbors that want to make changes to their properties (adding a fence, an addition to their house, roofing changes). The members review the request and makes sure that it follows the guidelines of the community. The members vote whether to approve the request from the homeowner. Most of the work is done via email, but sometimes a ride-by is also in order to view the subject property.
The neighborhood watch committee is a group of neighbors that keep a watchful eye out for suspicious activity in the neighborhood and communicate that with the other members of the group, the HOA board, and when necessary informing the entire community. The HOA board also communicates with the Neighborhood Watch members to inform them of any issues that are happening (ie. trespassers at the pool, vandalism, loitering, etc.) in the neighborhood.
Social Committee - Help plan social events that all of your neighbors can enjoy. Traditionally, these events have included: Pool Parties, Fall Festivals, Coordinate Santa's Visit, 4th of July Parade, and Adult Parties at the clubhouse.
If you are interested in helping out we could really use your help.

2024 Budget Questions and Answers
Q1. Why was there an increase in Dues for 2024 of $40 per homeowner? A: In order to meet our budgetary standards outlined in the reserve study the dues were increased to help ensure operational costs and reserves are covered. The dues were increased by 6% to help with rising costs of maintenance and repairs as well as preparing for large upcoming projects in the community.
Q2. Why is the budgeted amount for violation letters so high ($8,000)?
A: The previous year was budgeted for 7k and it was exceeded so we budgeted 8k for 2024 since there is a continuing trend of increased violation notices within the community.
Q3. Why are there reductions in fine income in the months of May and July?
A. When Fines are assessed they are placed into receivables and it is possible for homeowners to work with the board to reduce or remove fines based on each unique circumstance before collection. Once fines are collected they are not refunded.
