It’s where they can still gather in the many cul-de-sacs, community lawn, pool or clubhouse, instead of in front of a video monitor. They can enjoy those glorious childhood experiences you don’t plan at all — a block full of kids playing capture the flag until sunset or a competition to see whose cannonball can make the biggest splash. Cordera is how to family.

La Plata, the developer of Cordera, has a vision for an HOA that parallels their vision for the master-planned communities they develop — to create and preserve long-term value for the homeowners and their property in the community where the HOA functions. They want to ensure that the investment made by homeowners will continue to grow well into the future.

La Plata and the HOA accomplish this in three ways: (1) by building and maintaining common areas and community facilities; (2) by formulating and implementing protective covenants, which establish standards for design, construction, upkeep and use of property in the community; and (3) by establishing community activities, programs, and events that serve the needs and preferences of the residents.

The primary activities of an HOA include: maintenance of parks, trails and common area sidewalks, professional HOA management and covenant enforcement, Community Center management, review and approval of modifications to architectural and landscape elements, and sponsoring of community events. HOA dues are $108 monthly.
