1. What do my Homeowners Assessments pay for?

Providence Point Homeowners Assessments go towards many things.  To name a few, they provide for Grounds Landscaping and Upkeep, Building Maintenance, Sewer/Water, Commercial Garbage, Basic Cable TV, Communiversity, 24-hour Security, the Clubhouse with the pool, spa, and weight room and the other Community Buildings, as well as bus service to local shopping areas.

2. Who do I call to arrange for utility services?

Utility services that you would need to arrange for when you move in are telephone, garbage and recycling, and electricity.  Basic cable is already arranged automatically.  Upon orientation, you’ll be given a list of the appropriate companies and their respective phone numbers.

3. Why is there a Property Management Office and what do they do?

Property Management is here to assist you and to carry out the general business of the community.  The primary departments located at the Property Management Office (PMO) are Accounting, Maintenance and Facilities, Activities, Resident Orientation and the Community Management.

4. Can I have visitors stay with me?

Yes, you can have visitors stay with you.  We ask that all guests who are staying on the property longer than 72 hours be registered with PMO.  You are allowed to have a guest stay up to 30 days in a calendar year and all guests no more than 60 days total throughout the year.

5. How do I become involved in the community?

We highly recommend that you do and there are many ways to become involved.  Maybe you’d like to volunteer to be on your Village Board of Directors, or possibly help out with the Welcome Committee.  PMO can provide information to you with a list of committees and organizations you can become a part of.

6. How do I pay my Homeowner Assessment?

You can sign up for Automated Clearing House (ACH), which every month automatically pays your assessment from your bank account or you can drop off or mail a check to PMO.

7. How many vehicles am I allowed?

The number of vehicles you are allowed is dictated by your personal parking space.  The Owner of each Unit is entitled to the parking space(s) assigned to the Unit in the deed, primarily your garage.  All other parking spaces throughout the community are intended for visitors and guests.

8. How many pets can I have?

You are allowed to have a pet, one dog or one cat is the most common.  All pets must be leashed and attended when they are outside of your home and they must be inoculated and licensed as required by local ordinance.  No pet will be allowed to become a nuisance and Owners are responsible for their pets’ behavior.  Owners must also immediately remove, and properly dispose of, their pet’s wastes.

9. Can I do any gardening around my condominium unit?

We have a “Pea Patch” that can accommodate most of your gardening wishes, every year the residents create a beautiful setting with all the flowers and vegetables.
You are allowed to do personal gardening in the Limited Common Areas around your unit, however, you need to fill out a “Personal Gardening Agreement,” obtained from the Property Management Office first, and then upon approval, be given green flags to set aside your gardening area from the landscapers.
