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. Our revenue is derived from membership assessments, which are mandatory upon ownership of a home within the community.
What we offer...
The development is sited on 23 acres encompassing 146 homes with an overall population of about 400 individuals. The
Community has a Common Area, which features just under two acres of a lush, shaded greenbelt with walkways, 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. As required by California Law, a Reserve Account is established, managed and funded for long-term replacement of the Association's assets: pool equipment
(furniture, heaters, pumps), cabana fixtures, decking, walkways, lamp poles, fences, trash cans, arbors, and even trees.
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. Additionally, an Architectural Review Committee (ARC) assists the Board in governance of aesthetics and proposed homeowner structural changes.
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 funding 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.
Further, the Board has the duty of supervising the financial stability of the association in providing ample reserves to allow
for continued operation. In addition, they are charged with enforcing the Governing Documents 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.
