ABOUT

OUR 

ASSOCIATION

Welcome to Central Park! 

Bel Aire Central Park Homeowners Association (belairecentralparkhoa) is one of several HOAs within a development known as Central Park in Bel Aire, Kansas.  The Central Park HOA includes two sections - known as The Park and The Village.  Both sections are covenant communities and together, consist of 144 lots.  Many of the homes are built around a distinctive alley system that allows for garages and parking to be accessed from the back of the home.

Our association is known for its diverse and unique home styles - everything from Craftsman to Bungalows to Modern Farmhouse to Traditional.  The people who live here are synonymous with the homes - friendly, inviting, warm and full of charm and character!  We have families, young couples, retired couples and singles who all live as neighbors in one of the most beautiful areas in Bel Aire. 

 

We're so glad you're here!

General Questions

How much are the HOA dues? When are they due?


Currently, our HOA dues are $265 annually. They are due every year by April 1st, and you can set them up to be paid automatically, right here on our website. If you need help setting this up, please let us know.




What houses are covered under this HOA?


The below map, which outlines the area that this HOA governs will serve as your guide. Not all houses in Central Park are covered under our HOA, only those that are in The Park and The Village areas.




Is the community pool free?


Part of the annual dues go towards paying for a pool pass, so yes, every HOA household who is current on their dues can use the community pool for free when it is open. Being a part of the Central Park HOA gives your household a family pass (2 adults and all dependent children) As of 2020, all members of the pool, regardless whether or not they are with an HOA, have to pay for their guests.





Prospective Residents

Are there any open lots available to build on?


Yes, currently the open lots are being offered by Banister Real Estate. It is best to give them a call, to discuss your options and get a lot purchased.




I live in the Landing or the Villas, who do I contact for my HOA?


Please refer to the City of Bel Aire website - belaireks.org - under Community for a complete list of all HOAs and their directors.





Current Residents

How do I redeem my family pool pass?


The city keeps a list of all current HOA households who have paid their dues. Tell the person at the front desk your name and address, and show proof of address, and they will get you your membership ID number. Each HOA pool membership includes 2 adults and all dependent children residing in the household. As of 2020, all members of the pool, regardless whether or not they are with an HOA, have to pay for their guests




How can I get on the HOA board?


We are always looking for help, and would love more members on the HOA committee. Elections are held once a year, at the annual HOA meeting in February. Come prepared to introduce yourself, and tell us why you’d like to be on the committee, and if you have any new ideas, or improvements to existing!




How do I contact the Central Park HOA Architectural Design Committee (ADC)?


You can email your Project Approval Form (available on the website) to: belairecentralpark@gmail.com. Please refer to the Architectural Design Guidelines that have been provided to you for information regarding all exterior and landscaping projects.




What are the differences between covenants, bylaws and guidelines?


Bylaws are mutually agreed upon rules for the HOA, while covenants are long-term promises to do something or refrain from something. Our covenants primarily discuss topics such as land and external structures. The bylaws discuss topics pertaining to meetings, members, due payments, delinquency, liens and other rules of this nature for which we are to abide by. The design guidelines and landscaping guideline documents are meant to be examples of what exterior features should look like in the neighborhood.




What kind of a fence can I put up? Does it need to be approved?


According to our bylaws, you may not install a privacy fence. The options are iron or aluminum, similar to the other neighbors around you. Please log into your HOA account and review the bylaws, covenants, and most especially, the landscaping guidelines. Any major exterior work should first be approved by the HOA design committee. Please complete the Architectural Design Projec Approval Form (under Public Documents) on this site. All fencing must be approved by the City of Bel Aire as well.




Can I fence in a green electrical box that's in my yard?


The large green cubes are Westar electrical junction boxes. According to Westar policy, if it will be fenced in, you must leave 10 feet clear in the front of it (the side with the lock on it is the front), and 3 feet around the rest of the sides. They also prefer a 5 ft gate nearby, or removable fence sections if no gate.




If I want to re-paint my house, do I need to get the color approved?


Any major exterior work, painting included, should first get approved by the HOA design committee. Please email the color and any other information to the design committee, and we will review it.




What should I do if I need to purchase a new mailbox?


The approved mailbox for The Park and The Village is the Heavy Duty Rural Mailbox, style #4850, in black. You can buy these online at mailboxes.com. and on Amazon or you can buy them at your local Home Depot store.




What should I do if I need to replace all or part of my mailbox post?


The HOA has purchased a number of single replacement posts, one-sided posts and two-sided posts. The HOA purchased these in bulk at a discount. They are available to you at the discounted price - just send the HOA Board an email at belairecentralpark@gmail.com. In general, it is up to each homeowner to keep mailboxes and posts painted and sealed as the original paint fades and deteriorates.





Account Questions

What can I do once I set up my HOA account log in ? Why would I want an account?


By signing up on our website, this gives you access to many useful features. You can access member only content such as meeting minute documents. You can also take place in online polls and voting that will be added in the future.




Is signing up for automatic HOA payments safe?


Absolutely, our website has an SSL certificate installed which provides the https:// padlock in the web address. All aspects are done securely, and the payments are handled through Stripe. No payment data, is ever stored on our website, and our website is PCI compliant. Our Stripe integration uses the Stripe.js method to collect credit card (and other similarly sensitive) details without having the information touch our server.




What if I moved and forgot to cancel the recurring subscription?


We try to be aware of members that are moving so that we can cancel your recurring subscription accordingly. It would be helpful, however, if you send the board an email (belairecentralpark@gmail.com) letting us know of your move. If you have already paid your dues, and you are moving out of the neighborhood, dues will be credited during closing.
