How can we go about instituting a limit on vehicles a unit has parked on the street surrounding their home? Our neighbors own 8 cars and all the homeowners around our culdesac have to deal with vehicles constantly parked in front of our homes. (2 of in states of disrepair and 1 is a company vehicle) Our HOA assessments should be going to prevent this type of devaluation of our neighborhood.

There are currently no restrictions in the CC&R's as to the number of vehicles a person can have. The City of Sparks may have some restrictions. The Nevada Revised Statutes 116.350 prohibits HOA's from enforcing streets and sidewalks unless they are in a gated community. This regulation only gives exceptions for recreational vehicles, watercrafts, trailers, utility trailers or some commercial vehicles to the extent authorized and allowed by law. 

How much are assessments and when are they due?

Assessments are levied annually and payable during the year in quarterly installments. Assessments are due and payable, in advance on January 1st, April 1st, July 1st and October 1st for $83.75 each quarter. An assessment will be delinquent if not received and posted to your account within 10 days after it is due. Delinquent assessments will be charged a $10.00 late fee. See Assessment Collection Policy for additional information.

How to file an ongoing noise complaint. IE mini bike going back and forth for hours

You can complete the complaint form and submit it to the Association for review.  Noise nuisance complaints such as excessively loud music, parties, etc. after quiet hours should first be reported to the Sparks PD at the time the incident is occurring.

I have searched and cannot find the newsletter that I thought said you have loosened the restrictions on storage sheds; and that we can now put on our property resin or polyethylene sheds. Am I correct? What are the color restrictions, and do they need approval?

The Board approved a Vinyl Shed Resolution on September 24, 2015. This resolution states "that the best interest of the membership would be served to allow vinyl sheds which MUST be approved by the Architectural Control Committee on a case-by-case basis, and needs to meet all the shed specifications" (see specs on shed request form) "and have the appearance of a stick built shed." The color of the shed needs to match the color of the house. Please refer to pages 5 & 6, Section J. of the Architectural Control Committee General Guidelines regarding "Accessory Outbuildings and Sheds".  Please contact the Association office if you have any additional questions.

Is Membership in the Association optional?

No. Any person who becomes an Owner in The Vistas Homeowners Association is automatically a Member of the Association. Every member is expected to adhere to and abide by the requirements of the Association and governing documents.

Is there a limit to how many cars can be parked in driveway and in front of the house?

The Associations governing documents does not have a specific limit on the number of cars a unit can have parked in the driveway or in front of the house. The Association does however have rules that apply to inoperable vehicles and those that leak oil or other fluids in the driveway.
