By design, each member of the North, South and West Community Associations contributes to the Council. This is accomplished when each of these associations contributes a prorata share to the expenses of the Council based upon the billable density in their respective associations.
The Council Board of Directors reviews and adopts its budget in much the same manner as the associations. Three primary sources of income serve the Council – new sale capital contributions, prorata cost sharing revenue from each association, and user fees for recreational facilities and participants in programs and events. The user fee approach creates an equitable system in that those who use the facilities and participate in programs and events help to bear a portion of their cost.
The Council budget reflects the shared cost for park maintenance and operation of Council amenities and member services that are available to all Summerlin residents.
It is important to note that the Board of Directors are sensitive to the importance of caring for and preserving the various amenities and assets while delivering the best possible value for each member’s assessment dollar. As a result, most residents would agree that Summerlin is a special place to call home.
