These Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ’s) are a series of common questions and answers on a specific topic as it relates to the community and HOA. Many questions regarding homeowners responsibilities should be answered by reading MHOA governing documents. Specifically the CC&R’s and the Rules & Regulations. If an item or subject area is not covered under FAQ’s or any another MHOA documentation on the site, please let the website admin’s know by submitting a request here; our goal is to make this website as useful as possible.
Given the requirements by the State of Nevada’s Phase 2 Roadmap to Recovery, it is not possible to reopen the pool, spa, tennis courts, or playground at this time. The Board seeks to balance the safety of the residents and the wise use of Meadowridge’s resources with the availability of these recreational facilities. Essentially, the Roadmap requires extensive staffing, which Meadowridge does not have, to ensure that the strict use requirements are met.
The Board received guidance from legal counsel to inform Meadowridge Association, Inc.’s COVID-19 Plan. The Real Estate Division requires that Meadowridge have a COVID-19 Plan, which we have put together with the help of our counsel. Provisions about the common amenities are in the last 3-4 pages of the Plan. To see the full copy click Roadmap to Recovery.

You are putting our community and your property at risk. Basically, you are breaching your contract with the community and ultimately your neighbors. The maintenance and management services that support our community are dependent upon timely receipt of your monthly assessment. If payments are not received, a late fee is applied. Sixty days after your last payment the collection process begins.
Please be advised before you purchase into a “Common Interest Community,” it is your responsibility to know 1) you are signing a contract with MHOA community at the time of your purchase 2) that you agree to pay monthly assessment for the entire period you are the homeowner.
Meadowridge is a privately owned, a single-family subdivision of 97 homes. We have extensive “common area” greenbelts, mature landscaping, trees, ponds and community amenities such as our pool, clubhouse, sports courts and walking paths. As a result, we tend to pay a higher monthly assessment when compared to communities with limited amenities, xeriscaped common areas, and more single-family homes.

The quick answer is; 1) there is no one section of the property prioritized over another. We have limited funds within the reserve account which are earmarked for major repairs. 2) money used for these major repairs, such as roads, pool, clubhouse, etc., are prioritized annually, funded by ALL 97 homeowners and required by law. The intention is to minimize the financial burden on homeowners now or in the future.

The Architectural Committee (ARC) is charged with enforcing the “look of the community” for the benefit of the community. Unfortunately, standards have not always been enforced evenly. We recognize that everyone has their own ideas of beauty but some uniformity of the “look” needs to be enforced to enhance the community and our individual property values. We encourage you to please contact and meet with the Architectural Committee before commencing your project.
The CC&R’s dictate that the exterior of your home may not be altered [painted, reroofed, added onto or removed] without an Architectural Committee project review and approval. This also applies to items not attached to your house but are in public view from the street. Click to download your ARC Application.
No. Please do not park at right angles to the curb or the edge of the street in Meadowridge.
Meadowridge was designed for cars to park parallel with the curb or street edge. When cars and trucks are parked at a right angle to the curb or edge of the street, it reduces parking space, inconveniences neighbors and makes it very difficult for emergency vehicles maneuver. The same is true if multiple vehicles are parked in driving lanes of our community circles. Please use your driveway and visitor parking that’s available in all parts of Meadowridge.

Be advised the Owner of the vehicle will incur all the costs associated with the towing. “Do Not Park Here” is noted in multiple locations within the community. Please be respectful of the rules and your neighbors.
NO. Parking constraints, narrow streets and the intrusive nature of garage sales contribute to this restriction.

No construction materials shall be stored on roadways, pathways, trails, greenbelts, open space, or any common area, unless on individual homeowners driveway.
The Architectural Committee may require the contractor to submit an erosion protection plan to control possible sedimentation travel to parks, green belts, waters, or other common area when in the opinion of the Committee it is deemed necessary or when required by Washoe County or the City of Reno as a condition of approval of any project. If requested, this plan must be submitted before any construction activity.

All homeowners are encouraged to shovel their private walkways and driveways.
