Typically, the HOA - which is simply a collection of all home/property owners in the subdivision - is not actually formed until the builder/developer has left or is about to leave. Once the HOA is formed, you and all the other property owners have control and can make decisions, etc. as the bylaws allow.

Unfortanately it could be no, you will need to review and home owners association rules or regulations you should have received when you purchased the house. This will outline what their duties are. SOmetime sthe only way to take control is to first speak up at a monthly meeting or take over by running for president or an officer position in the HOA.
