Who we are...
The Autumn Wood At Hunter's Field Homeowners Association (Autumn Wood HOA) is a private homeowners'
association and suburban community, located in the city of Simi Valley, CA. The Association has been in existence since 1984 as a mutual-benefit, non-profit corporation. The planned urban development (PUD) was
developed by Griffin Homes, but is a separate entity and no longer connected with the developer. There are 146 homes within the community with an overall population of about 400 individuals. Our revenue
is derived from membership assessments, which are mandatory upon ownership of a home within the community.
What we offer...
The Association encompasses 17 acres and features a lush and shaded greenbelt, a large swimming pool
with Jacuzzi spa, and a cabana for use by the residents.
What your assessments pay for...
The monthly assessments (dues) pay for the utilities (water, lighting, and heating) and
maintenance of the common area: the pool, spa, and greenbelt. A 'Reserve Account' is managed and funded for long-term replacement of the Association's assets: pool furniture, pool heaters, pool pumps,
cabana fixtures, decking, etc.
How we are managed...
The Autumn Wood Homeowners Association is governed by a Board of Directors who are homeowners elected by the membership. The Association Board consists of seven (7) members, whose terms are staggered to assure continuity. There are several committees to assist the Board in governance, such as: Architectural for aesthetics and proposed homeowner structural changes, Landscape for common area property maintenance, Policy & Information dealing with Board Resolutions and other policy instruments, yet includes newsletter publication for information and notification, and, website development and deployment; Pool for aquatic maintenance management and safety issues; and, Security for crime prevention, detection and deterrence. Often the committees are combined for convenience. We certainly welcome your help in any or all of these areas.
The Association's operation is very similar to that of a small non-profit corporation, adhering to
Federal and California codes and other legislative mandates. While the Board has no specific jurisdiction over the individual homes, the Directors do oversee the community aesthetics as well as provide for the
maintenance of the recreational facilities and commonly-owned landscaped areas. The Board directs the overall operations of the HOA, publishes newsletters when appropriate, and provides for member services.
In addition, the Board is charged with supervising the financial stability of the association in
providing ample reserves to allow for continued operation. We are charged with enforcing the Covenants, Conditions & Restrictions (CC&Rs) and making sure that a harmonious community attitude is maintained by
creating a balance between the wishes of individuals, and what is best for the community as a whole.
A management company is employed by the Board to facilitate the necessary day-to-day
functions of a "front office." to include customer service, direct vendor control, and financial record-keeping.
