Homeowners Association

The Alaqua Lakes Community Association Inc. is the homeowner's Association (HOA) for Alaqua Lakes. It functions both as the legal governing entity (a not-for-profit Florida corporation) and the overall property manager for our community. The legal definition of the Association, along with the community's Covenants, conditions, restrictions, and easements, are outlined within the Alaqua Lakes governing documents available on this website under "Your Association". The HOA's purpose is to maintain the common property, oversee the business activities, and enforce the covenants and conditions, restrictions, and easements of Alaqua Lakes.
An elected Board of Directors governs the HOA, and the day-to-day management of the community is outsourced to a commercial property management company, currently Sentry Management. Our Community Association Manager from Sentry Management is Lindsey Thigpen. Several standing committees assist the Board of Directors in carrying out their duties by overseeing various functions that are important to the community. Since the Board approves and oversees all committee activities, a Board member is generally assigned as Chairman for each committee and is responsible for keeping the Board up to date on the committee's activities.

Association Committees

Generally, the committees meet monthly and are open to residents who wish to attend. Meeting schedules for both the Board and the committees are available on this Website. 

  • Architecture Review: This Committee is responsible for reviewing homeowner requests for exterior architectural and landscape changes to their property. Property owners cannot make exterior changes to their property without approval from this committee. All exterior property changes, including paint colors and landscape trees, plants, and beds, must be approved. The ARC meets monthly, on the 4th Wednesday of each month at 6:00 PM at the Legacy Club, unless otherwise posted. 
  • Communications: This Committee is responsible for the development and maintenance of both the community Newsletter and the Website. The newsletter is published quarterly and is mailed to residents and posted on the Website. The Website is a virtual information source for community announcements, information, events, and collaborative communication regarding Alaqua Lakes.
