August Updates

From Mike Bailey - General Manager


Every so often, I think it is important to reflect on what our mission is at HRCA.  Our mission statement,“Enhancing property values and creating quality of life through recreation, community events and leadership” truly illustrates our being. 

HRCA prides itself in being the premier “Community Association” in the country. The amenities provided to our residents are second to none and the envy of many communities. Living in our planned development requires property owners to join the HRCA where your annual assessment fees provide for the upkeep of our four recreation centers. Our recreation centers include fitness areas, 17 bodies of water for recreational and competitive swimming, batting cages, sports turf, five gymnasiums, golf simulator at Northridge (and coming soon a Golf and Multi-Sport Simulator at Southridge), 10 outdoor and six indoor tennis courts, and coming soon six outdoor Pickleball courts at Westridge. The Backcountry Wilderness area that encompasses over 8200 acres also offers camps, horseback riding, trail rides, archery and many more events and activities. 

In 2022, HRCA produces over 85 community events, and our programs extend well over 2000 offerings from children’s programming, fitness to recreational opportunities. Additionally, your membership ensures your property values are perpetually enhanced as property owners are bound to adhere to the association's covenants, conditions, and restrictions (CC&Rs). Albeit, at times, those rules may seem restrictive (especially being the recipient of a compliance notice); however, the noted stipulations require for the general upkeep of properties along with an architectural review process for exterior enhancements to your property. You can find the Residential and Commercial Guidelines on our website

In August, HRCA will commence in the robust budget process to ensure that our residents “quality of life” is maintained. In 2023, our operational budget will approach approximately $30 million with an employee base of 876. The budget process takes approximately three months to complete with the final budget presented at the board meeting in October 2022.

My best,
