Did You Know?
Homeowner associations are required to maintain some of the stormwater infrastructure in their neighborhoods, including swales, check dams, shoreline plantings, rain gardens, pervious paving, ponds, and other features located on common property. Municipalities maintain an Operations and Maintenance Plan (O&M) on file that contains the requirements for your neighborhood facilities. Local governments are beginning to enforce these requirements!
The White River Alliance and local communities held a workshop on December 8, 2016 for those that help run an HOA and landscape contractors who manage neighborhood properties to learn how to meet these requirements and avoid corrective action. The workshop also included the benefits of native plants, design tips, and installation and maintenance issues. Another workshop is being planned for late 2017, more details to come.

Presentations from the 2016 workshop are listed below in pdf format for your use and reference.
