Can the amenities be used by non-Shouse residents?
Only Shouse Village residents may rent the community center and have regular access to the pool, tennis courts or basketball courts. We do not sell memberships to our pool. Guests are welcome to use the facilities on a limited basis when accompanied by a Shouse Village resident. Non-Shouse Village residents may participate in classes that are offered at our community center including exercise classes, classes for preschool-aged children, and tennis classes.
May renters use the amenities?
Fewer than 10% of Shouse Village homes are currently rented. Property owners may delegate their rights of enjoyment of the common area and facilities to tenants who reside on the property.
Who is the primary contact for disclosure packets for home sales in Shouse Village?
The SVCA Treasurer maintains the disclosure packets for home sales. Please send an email request to firstname.lastname@example.org.
How can I find the names of the current President or other Board members?
Shouse Village members have access to a private website, www.shousevillage.org. Board members are profiled on the website so residents have easy access to community leaders. All others may reach board members through their functional address like “email@example.com.” Please send an email request to firstname.lastname@example.org for current Board information.
Is Shouse Village managed by a professional management company?
The Shouse Village pool is currently managed by volunteers who are elected by the community. This helps keeps annual dues low compared to other home owner associations that offer comparable amenities. They in turn, hire a management company to provide some services such as hiring and scheduling lifeguards. Many Shouse teens work at the pool as lifeguards or even as swim coaches.
What are the annual membership dues?
In 2020, the annual membership dues were just over $1000 – that’s comparable to area local swim club memberships. The Board may elect to raise the dues annually in consonance with changes in the Consumer Price Index (CPI). Membership may be paid annually or in quarterly installments.
Sometimes special assessments are levied to defray the costs of capital improvements to common areas. The last special assessment was implemented in 2013.
