WHAT ARE MY ANNUAL HOA DUES (ASSESSMENTS) USED FOR?
Foxmoor Association Inc. is a self-managed homeowner’s association governed by a volunteer Board of Directors.

WHEN DO I NEED HOA APPROVAL FOR HOME IMPROVEMENTS?
Article VI of the Covenants (Architectural Control) states the following:
No building, fence, wall or other structure shall be commenced, erected or maintained upon the Property, nor shall any exterior addition to or change (including change of external paint, paneling and the like) or alteration therein be made until the plans and specifications showing the nature, kind, shape, height, materials, exterior colors and location of the same shall have been submitted to and approved in writing as to harmony of external design and location in relation to surrounding structures and topography by the Board of Directors of the Association, or by an architectural committee composed of three (3) or more representatives appointed by the Board. In the event said Board, or its designated committee, fails to approve or disapprove such design and location within thirty (30) days after said plans and specifications have been submitted to it, approval will not be required and this Article will be deemed to have been fully complied with.
In addition to this, Article VII of the Covenants lists Use Restrictions.
The Architectural Control Policy (found here) provides additional information with regard to architectural control and guidelines.
A good rule of thumb to follow: When in doubt, ask about. Review the covenants and architectural policies available in the Documents section. Instructions on submitting change requests can be found here. If you still have questions, they can be sent to the Board and will be addressed to the Architectural Committee as needed.
If you are interested in serving on this committee, contact any member of the Board.
WHO IS FOXMOOR UTILITY COMPANY AND WHAT IS A “FRONT FOOT ASSESSMENT"?
The Front Foot Assessment is a fee paid by the developer of this community, Wiggins and Utz, and Later Snyder, for the county installed water, sewer and (where applicable) natural gas utilities when the houses were built. That fee is passed onto the homeowner and payments are spread out over a 30 year span. Each homeowner’s annual fee is based on the cost for those utilities when the house was built, therefore the annual front foot assessment for homes built in the 1980s are different than the homes built in the 1990s. The Front Foot Assessment is attached to the property, so when a home is sold, the new owner picks up the remaining payment cycle. Foxmoor Utility Company is a business that bought out the front foot assessments from the developers and collects these fees. Foxmoor Utility Company is not affiliated in any way with our homeowner’s association, Foxmoor Association Inc. None of the fees collected benefit Foxmoor Association Inc.

WHAT ARE THE TREES I SEE THROUGHOUT THE NEIGHBORHOOD?
