The City Café

For those interested in sharing ideas and perspectives regarding local government.

Question: How many Americans live in homeowner associations or condominium associations?
A. 2.1 million
B. 9.6 million
C. 29.6 million
D. 57 million

The correct answer is 57 million Americans (1 in 5 Americans) live in HOAs or COAs. If you answered 2.1 million you were correct in 1970. Since then the growth has exploded.

What is causing the HOA growth? What are the implications of HOAs for local government? There are a number of other related policy questions…who will retain the responsibility for maintenance or upkeep? Is there a perception of double taxation to HOA residents?

Date: Thursday, March 29th
Time: 2:30 to 4:00 pm
