Welcome to the neighborhood and our community. Nestled on the western edge of Plymouth Township, Plymouth Commons subdivision is a community of 130 homes. We value you as a new member of our community. We want to introduce you to the Plymouth Commons Homeowners Association (PCHA) and provide you with information about our neighborhood. PCHA is the official homeowners organization of this subdivision. The primary purposes of the PCHA are to coordinate the delivery of subdivision-wide services and to encourage the adherence to covenants that help preserve the value and appearance of our subdivision. All property owners have an automatic membership in PCHA, have voting rights at the annual Members Meeting, may hold a position on the Board of Directors, and may use any of the designated Common Areas. Please consider how you can help your neighborhood, either by serving on our Board or by volunteering on one of its committees.
Board of Directors
The Board of Directors is the governing body of PCHA and manages its affairs on behalf of the subdivision homeowners. Board Directors are homeowners like yourself who volunteer their time to serve the neighborhood. The homeowner's and residents' responsibility is to abide by the rules and regulations as outlined in the Bylaws, Covenants and Restrictions, Development Guidelines, and other directives determined by the Board of Directors. Elections to the Board are held every year, and the Board appoints a President and other officers.
How to contact the Board
The Board uses mailers and/or email) to communicate regularly with homeowners on various matters, including area safety alerts, annual budgets, and dues. For routine matters, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, and you should get a written response within five business days.
PCHA Annual Dues
Our association assesses dues that are payable by March 31st by the homeowner(s) of record. Please refer to the dues letter that should arrive by the end of January each year. Before 2022, they were $350 per year. In 2023, they are $450 to account for increased costs in 2022. These dues are used to maintain the common areas (mowing, fertilizing, flowers, etc.), plowing of snow on roads, conducting PCHA business, and other necessary expenses voted on by the Board.
Weekly trash, yard waste, and recycling collection is on Wednesday. Per Township Ordinance, containers should be at the curb no earlier than 6:00 PM the day before and removed from sight as soon as possible after collection.
