Waterford Civic Association voluntary annual dues are $60 per household, which has been set to be affordable for most households. Funds collected are used to positively influence the neighborhood by hosting seasonal social events, making improvements at the community entrance, and maintaining the entrance grounds.
For the 2017/2018 fiscal year, approximately $4,700 was collected from about 78 of 205 Waterford households, which is a 38% contribution rate for the third year in a row.
The reason for such a consistently low contribution rate remains unclear, but we will continue to stress the importance of paying dues. Here are the reasons why:
- Savings: Savings allows us to plan for capital improvements such as a new irrigation system at the entrance. It can also help pay for unexpected events, such as fallen trees or accidental damage.
- Maintenance: A nice front entrance enhances the look of Waterford and adds value to our homes.
- Social Events: They encourage a sense of community and give us the opportunity to interact with neighbors throughout Waterford.
We also recognize that some families may choose to donate time in lieu of dues, and that is also greatly appreciated. For those who have donated other resources this past year, we thank you for your help!
