Purpose

The St. James Plantation Property Owners' Association (POA) was established to provide for the operations, maintenance and preservation of Common Areas and architectural control of homes and other structures.

Structure

The POA Board currently has six representatives elected by the property owners and seven members appointed by the Developer. Developer control of the POA will continue until certain conditions as specified in the "Master Declaration” are met.

St. James Plantation is unique in that there is a large portion of common properties that have already been turned over to the Property Owners' Association; it is also an incorporated Town; and we also have a very active developer.  The Town's limits extend outside St. James Plantation.  So, if you get a little confused about who does what, we have tried to clarify the information in each section.  But if you still need clarification, just call the POA office.

 

Meetings

  • The POA Board meets on the third Thursday of each month. 

  • The Board meeting is open to all property owners in January, April,  and July. Meeting notices are sent in advance.

  • The POA holds an open Informational Meeting on the third Thursday in February, March, May, June, August, September, November, and December at the Community Center at 4:00 PM.  Meeting notices are sent in advance.

  • The annual meeting of the Association takes place in October of each year. Meeting notices are sent in advance.
