The HOMESTEAD at Highland Lakes Condominium Owners Association consists of 61 individual freestanding (unattached) homes. HHL-COA is located in Genoa Township, Delaware County (southeast of the intersection of Worthington Road and Big Walnut Road) and is served by the Olentangy School District. The homes range in size from approximately 2200 to 3000 square feet of finished space and vary in architectural style. All units have front porches and attached 2-car garages entered from alleys in the rear of the units. There are sidewalks throughout the development lined by parkway trees, and the Common Elements include a clubhouse and swimming pool. Residents are typically “empty nesters,” but include a wide range of ages.
Genoa Township provides police, fire and emergency services, and their facilities are located within approximately one mile of HHL-COA. Water and sewer services are provided by Delaware County. Conveniently located, HHL-COA is about 5 miles from Polaris Town Center Mall and about 3 miles from Kroger, Giant Eagle, Meijer, Home Depot and Walgreen stores, along with other retailers and restaurants. A wide range of health care facilities are nearby on Polaris Parkway and Cleveland Avenue, and St. Ann’s Hospital is 15- 20 minutes away.
HHL-COA is governed by a 6-member Board of Directors elected by the residents. The Board has hired a professional management company that collects Association fees and provides or contracts for maintenance and repairs. Fees include lawn mowing, fertilizing, plant bed mulching and shrub pruning; trash collection; insurance; snow plowing and other annual operating expenses. A portion of the fees is directed to a capital reserve account that funds unit painting, roof replacements, street and sidewalk repairs and other capital improvements.
