What is a five-star neighborhood designation?
The Five Star Neighborhood Program was developed by Frisco city officials to recognize Frisco’s best neighborhoods with exceptional HOAs (Home Owners Associations) committed to developing and maintaining high-quality neighborhoods.
To achieve a Five Star Neighborhood status, the neighborhood HOA must meet specific requirements to show the HOA is promoting effective communication, management, and community involvement. The requirements are based on the following cornerstone elements:
- Board of Directors
The HOA must demonstrate they have a process in place to effectively recruit and develop board members, provide effective meeting reporting, and show a firm policy of enforcement regarding the HOAs covenants, conditions, and restrictions (CC&Rs), articles of incorporation, and by-laws.
- Financial Health
The HOA must demonstrate a strong fiscal policy, which includes strategic planning, funding, and audits.
- City Connection
To qualify for a Five Star Neighborhood distinction, HOAs should share information with their members regarding city initiatives such as water conservation, irrigation checks, permitting, and criminal deterrence programs made available through the City of Frisco.
For those professionally managed HOAs, this requirement helps ensure the property management company is adequately trained and acts within the requirements for such things as penalties, late fees, and foreclosures.
The communication clause of the Five Star Neighborhood Program helps ensure HOA organizations communicate effectively to the members and city staff. Specific components include effective communication through an RFP process for significant projects, distribution of HOA contact lists, and HOA newsletters made available.
- Community Involvement
HOAs should consistently and frequently promote social engagement within the neighborhood and participation in the City of Frisco sponsored events.
