The Willow Homeowners Association owns the roadway and carries out the requirements of the Willow Declaration of Covenants & Restrictions. The roadway, center area/structure and streetlights are owned by the Association, and Willow Lane is NOT public. The homes and properties are all privately owned, and each owner is automatically a member of the Association.
The dues, billed quarterly at $180 per property, pay for mowing and maintenance of the center area and the pavement, snowplowing, officers/directors insurance, etc.
I'm the president of the Association, and would be happy to respond to any further questions.
