The Landings Association owns and manages an extensive and diverse set of capital assets with an estimated replacement value of $76M, maintained and replaced through the Capital Reserve Fund. One of the most important responsibilities for the Association is to ensure that the existing community infrastructure can be supported by the Capital Reserve Fund when replacements are necessary. Our capital reserves are restricted monies, set aside in advance to help pay for major capital repairs and replacements, such as roads, community paths, bridges, lagoon structures and storm drains, buildings (including gatehouses), two Marinas, as well as large equipment such as street sweepers, jetter vacuum trucks, and backhoes.
Have you ever looked at your Landings Association’s Annual Assessment (Property Owners Dues) Statement and wondered why funds are split between General Assessment and Capital Reserve Assessment? Have you ever looked at the Association’s Budget Book on our website (www.landings.org) and wondered why funds are allocated to certain projects immediately while other projects get pushed down the timeline to receive attention in future years? What are these enigmas known as Operating and Reserves, and what makes up these annual budgets?
If you are looking for a way to contribute to the community and make a positive impact at the same time, consider volunteering to serve on one of The Landings Association’s Committees. Applications will be accepted through December 1, 2019.
Association committees include Appeals, Architectural Review, Communications, Finance, Insurance and Risk Management, Marinas, Public Works, Security, Strategic Water, and Water Conservation.
