FAQ
 
  • Are dues optional in Sierra Subdivision?
    No they are not.  They are applied equally to all property owners who own title or an interest in property in the subdivision.
  • How much are the annual dues in Sierra?
    As of 2021, the annual dues are $325/year.  That comes out to $0.89/day.
  • What is the "spruce up" that the Board keeps talking about?
    At 20 years old, some of our common areas are beginning to show their age.  The Board is on a multi-year plan to revitalize those areas.  We started with High Sierra in 2015 refreshing the entrance boulevard and island.  We hope to finish that project in 2017 with new grass seeding on the bare spots along that entry. 
     
    2016 will see our attention turned to the Sonoma Island, an effort that will take us possibly up to three years involving new landscaping, chairs and tables for people to enjoy.
     
    Calaveras started out as a minor project, but turned into a major rebuild when we found all the trees to be infected with a fungus commonly called needle cast.  For details on the problem, please see Project 74 in the documents section.  A new design was created for Calaveras, which can seen in detail in Project Next.  Be sure to watch the video.  Our hopes are to complete Calaveras in 2017/18.
     
    In our original post to this answer, we stated that the signs were not part of the spruce up efforts.  However, we have come to learn that the signs are in poor condition; you can push a screwdriver through both of them if you pick the right location.   As a result of their deteriorating condition, a number of property owners have asked that we address them so we expect to turn our attention to the signs once Calaveras and Sonoma are rebuilt.  
  • When are the annual assessments due each year?
    Annual assessments are due by March 31 of every year.
  • When is the Annual Meeting of the HOA?
    In 2015, we moved the annual meeting into the neighborhood holding it on the Saturday between Mother's Day and Memorial Day every May.   Sierra neighbors meet on the Sonoma Island to discuss the business of the subdivision.
