reserve study review for 2015

Findings from the 2012 Reserve Study Review for 2015

  • In 2015 we were in the fourth year of our five year assessment to collect money to replace the peaked roofs. Combined with the remaining year of assessments, this is enough money to get this work done. The walk-out roofs (not part of the original scope) came out of the reserve fund in 2014.

  • Based just on the reserve study, there are two viable options:

    • Going forward, if we raise the dues 3.5% each year to stay ahead of inflation (i.e., experience a 2% increase in costs due to inflation) and build up the reserve to handle large expenditures in the future, over the next 27 years, we can stay afloat without the need to have additional special assessments.
    • Going forward, if we only raise the dues 2.5% each year to stay ahead of inflation (i.e., experience a 2% increase in costs due to inflation) and slightly build up the reserve to handle large expenditures in the future, over the next 27 years, we can stay afloat but need to have special assessments, equal to the one we are having now, in years 2024, 2030, 2032 through 2037.
  • The Reserve Study includes additional monthly expenditures recommended by Javier Murillo of Cagwin & Dorward in their "Landscaping Improvement Program Prepared for Crown Harbor H.O.A." (dated 08/18/2014). These expenses are in addition to the monthly maintenance they currently perform for the association. If this plan is not adopted, monthly operating expenses and one reserve account item are reduced.

The Reserve Study Committee started with a spreadsheet (spreadsheet for 2015) that depicts income, expenses, and their effects on the reserve account. From that spreadsheet, a report (dated September 4, 2014) was provided to the Board.
