Can I pay my HOA dues online?

How can we go about instituting a limit on vehicles a unit has parked on the street surrounding their home? Our neighbors own 8 cars and all the homeowners around our culdesac have to deal with vehicles constantly parked in front of our homes. (2 of in states of disrepair and 1 is a company vehicle) Our HOA dues should be going to prevent this type of devaluation of our neighborhood.

Nov. 3, 2015

There are currently no restrictions in the CC&R's to the number of vehicles a person can have. The City of Sparks may have some restrictions. The Nevada Revised Statutes 116.350 prohibits HOA's from enforcing streets and sidewalks unless they are in a gated community. This regulation only gives exceptions for recreational vehicles, watercraft, trailers or commercial vehicles to the extent authorized by law.

I have searched and cannot find the newsletter that I thought said you have loosened the restrictions on storage sheds; and that we can now put on our property resin or polyethylene sheds. Am I correct? What are the color restrictions, and do they need approval?

Sep. 18, 2016

The Board approved a Vinyl Shed Resolution on September 24, 2015. This resolution states "that the best interest of the membership would be served to allow vinyl sheds which MUST be approved by the Architectural Control Committee on a case-by-case basis, and needs to meet all the shed specifications" (see specs on shed request form) "and have the appearance of a stick built shed." The color of the shed needs to match the color of the house. Please contact the Association office if you have any additional questions.
