Esperanza is a large master planned community with a wide variety of homes and various commercial uses. The overarching goal of the Association is to protect property values for everyone within Esperanza. This is accomplished in two ways: 1) routine inspection of property and enforcement of deed restrictions to ensure compliance; 2) operation, maintenance and repair of the assets owned by the Association. First, the Association makes and enforces rules for all the property in Esperanza. Deed restrictions are placed on the properties before it is sold to individual owners and the Association is responsible to uphold compliance with those deed restrictions. Also, Esperanza has a lot of common areas and facilities owned by the Association. The Association is responsible for hiring and supervising the vendors that make sure the Association’s assets are kept up. This includes but is not limited to the landscaping and irrigation along Esperanza Blvd as well as the various open spaces throughout the community and the 11-acre Club site with all kinds of moving parts. The road that is located behind a gate is owned and maintained by the Association, including the gate and all associated pieces.
Goodwin & Company is a vendor hired by Esperanza Community Association to perform certain functions for the community. Any concerns regarding assessments, accounts, reporting deed violations, or received violations should be directed to Goodwin & Company via email at email@example.com or by contacting the Community Manager at 830-336-4575. As part of the contract with Goodwin & Company, they hire a Community Manager to drive the community and ensure the deed restrictions are enforced in order to maintain property values in the community.
The two functions of the Association include deed restriction enforcement and maintenance and operation of Association owned common areas. The majority of the Association’s budget is dedicated to the costs of operating, maintaining and repairing the HOA owned common areas such as walking trails, parks, entry signage, lighting and fountains, landscaping and irrigation along Esperanza Boulevard, swimming pools, fitness center, lazy river, and holiday lighting at entrance. General administrative costs for the management company, lifestyle coordinator, pool monitors and cleaners, janitorial services, taxes, reserves for capital assets and insurance are also paid for with your HOA dues. Currently the assessments collected from residents do not cover all the costs to operate the HOA. Therefore, in order for the HOA to function and be able to operate, maintain and repair the Association owned assets, Developer funding for the shortfall deficit will be needed until the HOA assessments can sustain the costs of operating the community. A copy of the approved budget is available upon request.
A copy of deed restrictions should be provided at closing. You can also find them on the Village Rules page. To determine your section, refer to your closing documents or your pod entry name.
