The Mountain Springs Ranch POA is a non-profit organization which manages the common properties and facilities. These include the pool complex, 85 acre nature preserve, gated community roads, public rights of way and easements not owned by Comal County, gates and landscaped areas at entrances and any associated sprinkler systems.. It will include any facility, wall, fence or safety feature developed in the future on common property.

Gated Communities (The Hills, The Ridge and The Vistas)
Please report gate operating problems directly to Gate Services at 210-867-5451. New residents should contact firstname.lastname@example.org to request gate codes and/or gate remotes.
Every property owner is a member of the POA and shares a portion of the responsibility for its support. The current POA assessments are $300 per year per lot. Owners of two or more lots pay for no more than two lots. Property owners in the gated communities, The Vistas, The Ridge, and The Hills pay an additional assesment per year for gates, entrance maintenance, and private road maintenance and repair. The Estates pays an assessment for entrance maintenance. Roads in the non-gated areas, The Highlands, The Oaks, The Bluffs, The Uplands and The Estates are owned and maintained by Comal County.
Your POA annual assessment is mailed by December 1 and is due January 1st of each year and will be considered delinquent if not paid by January 15. Please make payments to the POA at the address noted above (and on your invoice) indicating your lot number and Mountain Springs Ranch Property Owners Association on your check. For other payment options, please contact the Property Owners Association at 1-866-364-0214 or email email@example.com.
To ensure that Mountain Springs Ranch develops in a way that the documents you signed at closing envisioned, and to enhance long-term property values, every property owner must comply with the Mountain Springs Ranch Declaration of Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions (DCCRs), the Supplemental Declarations for each gated neighborhood, and the Architectural and Site Design Guidelines. If you did not receive a copy of these documents, or cannot find them, please contact your title company and request a copy, or you may also download them here.
In our experience, most violations occur because owners, architects, designers, builders and subcontractors are unaware of the restrictions and rules. It is the property owner's responsibility to make sure that all parties are aware of, and comply with, the DCCRs and Architectural and Site Design Guidelines.
