As we have undertaken major maintenance of roads and sidewalks this year, a number of Homeowners have questions about sidewalk maintenance and responsibility.
The HOA is responsible for maintaining sidewalks that abut HOA property only, such as those along the clubhouse and pool, along bridges, and so on.
According to the HOA covenant, specifically Section 5.15, Homeowners are responsible for maintenance and repair of sidewalks adjacent to the Owner’s lot:
“. . .Each Owner shall be responsible for the maintenance and repair of the sidewalk adjacent to such Owner’s Lot after construction, and shall maintain such portion of the sidewalk in a good condition of repair.” (end of paragraph)Covenant Documents
This is similar to regulations established by the City of San Antonio regarding sidewalks:
If a Homeowner repairs a sidewalk to its original state, Board or ACC approval is not necessary. However, if there is a need for changes, then the work would need prior approval.
We appreciate Homeowner concern for maintaining the quality and safety of our neighborhood, and hope this clarifies and questions.
