HOA Rules Overview
To help keep our neighborhood nice, and to maintain our property values, we are protected by the Covenants of the Ridgeview at Stetson Hills Master Homeowners Association (HOA). When you choose to live in a covenanted area, you do so because you understand the value and security a HOA brings, but it can sometimes be difficult to find all the rules and information you need to make an informed decision, and to understand what benefits and restrictions are in place. Below are just a few highlights of our rules, but we encourage you to read through the Declaration of Covenants, Conditions, Restrictions (CCRs), Easements for Ridgeview at Stetson Hills, and Architectural Standards. These can be found in your Homeowner Portal.
If you have questions regarding your Homeowner Portal, please call 719.389.0700 or email StetsonHillsMaster@eHammersmith.com.
