Reminders & Updates:
Annual Property Inspections (API):
First round of APIs are currently in progress with regular inspections occurring in each precinct simultaneously every business day, weather permitting. First rounds of inspections are scheduled to be completed by Memorial Day Weekend, May 27, 2022. With the warmer weather approaching, here are some common Spring cleaning items to consider:
· Clean dirt, debris, and mildew from siding, gutters, and soffits
· Paint condition of exterior, including siding, door/window trim, shutters, etc.
· Routine maintenance of lawn/landscaping
· Repair any maintenance issues with fences and driveways
Should you require making significant improvements or modifications, such as replacing fences, windows, doors, or repainting your home, etc. please submit a Property Improvement Request (PIR) form found on our website at www.montclairva.com under Forms & Documents and follow the instructions provided.
For additional information for PIRs, and other items reviewed during APIs, please refer to Article 5 of the MPOA Community Guidelines, as well as the MPOA Amended Deed of Declaration and Bylaws.
Updated Assessments - May 1, 2022 – April 30th, 2023:
The new budget has passed and assessments for the 2023 Fiscal Year (May 1, 2022 – April 30, 2023) will be $720 annually or $62/month if you choose to pay monthly ($60/month + $2 service fee).
If you have paid the annual assessments in full ($720.00), you may have noticed that only the monthly amount of $62.00 was deducted from your assessment account. Please note that Accounting Department will deduct the annual fees during the end of May/beginning of June and credit back the $2.00 service fee.
Please make all payments payable to Montclair POA. Assessments are due on May 1st, payments must be received by May 10th to avoid a late fee.
Community volunteers are vital to the success of MPOA events. We are seeking volunteers to help continue making enjoyable experiences for everyone who attends our events.

Committee Members Wanted!
The Communications, Covenants, and Signage Committees are looking for members to join. Here is a brief description of each committee:
Ad Hoc Signage Committee research, discuss, and will develop a plan to secure professional design options to replace current Montclair signs that are consistent in material, style, and theme, while also embodying the "Montclair Community." Signs for consideration are all entrance, beach, and event signs.
The Covenants Committee reviews Property Improvement Requests and assures that properties are maintained in a manner providing for visual harmony and soundness of repair, avoiding activities deleterious to the aesthetic or property values of the property, and promoting the general welfare and safety of the owners, their guests, and other invitees.
The Communications Committee provides creative and technical methods to enhance all avenues of communications between the Board of Directors and Members of the Association, as well as suggesting methods of facilitating information flow from sources outside of the Montclair community.
