Those fee’s can range from around $300/ month to typically just over $700/ month and include water/sewer, basic cable TV, reserves, landscaping, security, manager, and more. The association is on sound financial footing and has traditionally been very well-managed winning Community Association Awards regularly in different categories over the years!
