Assessment Frequently Asked Questions

COVID-19

Due to Covid-19, the recreation centers are closed, do I still have to pay my assessment payment? Are we going to get a refund?

Highlands Ranch Community Association has received a few inquiries as to whether it will provide members with refunds or offsets due to the State of Colorado’s decision to close recreational facilities during the states of emergency (Colorado and National) issued due to COVID-19 pandemic (defined as such by the World Health Organization). The State closed recreational facilities to help society “flatten the curve” of new virus cases, protect community members, and decrease pressure on medical infrastructure.

HRCA cannot offer refunds or offsets per our legally binding governing documents. Section 8.40 of the Community Declaration provides,

“All Assessments shall be payable in the amounts specified in the levy thereof and no offsets or reduction thereof shall be permitted for any reason including, without limitation, any claim that the Community Association or the Board of Directors is not properly exercising its duties and powers under this Community Declaration.”

Providing any refunds or offset in this circumstance will harm the community further both today and in the future. HRCA was created not just to administer recreational facilities, but to further and foster the entire community’s health, safety, and welfare.

Some of HRCA’s expenses, such as utility costs, may decrease while the recreation centers are closed. These savings (which are minimal, compared to the loss in revenue) are offset by the decrease in revenue due to the suspension of activities and programs that individuals pay to attend. The ultimate impact of these closures, and the virus, remain to be seen and we will continue to update you as we gain more information and clarity.

We recognize that this time is creating a hardship throughout the world and remain committed to working with our members to get through this crisis as a community.
