REINVESTING BACK IN TO LADERA
Every year LARMAC Board of Directors reinvests assessment funds back into the community, which keeps the community looking great and operating smoothly. Much of this is done through 'reserves' - Ladera's ‘savings account', which is used to replace and/or repair aging community assets. Recent examples include:
- Covenant Hills Clubhouse renovation
- Next phase of the playground replacement projects (8 parks)
WHAT DOES YOUR LARMAC ASSESSMENT GO TOWARD?
You may wonder what your monthly master association assessments go toward each month. Since Ladera Ranch is located in unincorporated Orange County and is therefore not a city, much of LARMAC homeowner association fees go toward maintaining association facilities and assets. LARMAC has negotiated a discounted rate for Gigablast, Cox High Speed Internet service.
