2017 SLVHA Reserve Study

This year the Association hired Association Reserves, a professional engineering consulting company that provides Reserve budget and disclosure solutions for Association-governed communities, to perform an updated “Non-site Visit” Reserve Study. The Reserve Study is a complete, accurate, and user-friendly 30-year study that clearly spells out what needs to be reserved for, evaluates the strength of the current Reserve Fund, and recommends a funding Plan. The Study highlights those components that are expected to require attention in year one and those needing replacement within the first five years. Please review the attached Executive Summary for more information.
