SOA Updates – COVID-19

Effective Monday, July 6, the SOA office will be closed from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. to allow for staff’s lunch break.   These new hours will be temporary and will eliminate the need for staff to share work spaces while we put measures into place for the safety of our employees and customers.

In addition, if there is any business that you would normally come to the office to take care of (Security, Customer Service desk, ARB, or Accounting) that can be handled via email, we would ask that you please do so to minimize visitors in the office.  If an office visit is necessary, only those that are needed to complete the transaction should come in to allow ample space in the lobby as we are limited to no more than four people at a time.  Wearing a mask is required.  

  • Accounting:  (questions about assessments/payments, copy of statement, change address, change payment methods, etc.)
  • Architectural Review Board (ARB): (question about submittal, forms needed, sending submittal, etc.)
  • Customer Service and Security: or  (vehicle access decal, owner identification card, copy of incident report, etc.) 

Again, these new measures will be temporary and changes will be communicated via the email.  We appreciate your understanding and apologize for any inconvenience.
