The Springlake Property Ownersu2019 Association has recently become the subject of heated debate amongst its many local, Dripping Springs, residents. The once peaceful subdivision seems to be quite the opposite after years of unfair targeting by a questionably run POA. Over the last decade, itu2019s been sited that over a dozen homeowners have sold their homes and moved away because of the POAu2019s practices. An abundance of complaints and conflicts have led numerous homeowners to question the board membersu2019 motives and ethics after witnessing them rule the subdivision as though they hold sole reign over it. As far back as 2002, board members have operated suspiciously by collecting annual fees without providing any accountability for where the bulk of the communitiesu2019 funds have gone. Residents have sited that over the years there have been no community-oriented additions, such as common areas or parks, nor have there been any substantiated improvements within the neighborhood itself. When questioned regarding the exact whereabouts of the communities fees, the only response the board members have given is that the money has gone to pay for its own attorneys that have brought litigation against the neighborhoodu2019s very own residents. An estimated amount of well over Fifty-thousand dollars is yet to be accounted and is now pending further investigation. The board itself has had some internal changes in membership over recent years, yet itu2019s negligent practices have reportedly stayed the course. Last year, local Dripping Springs attorney Rich King replaced former POA president Allie Blair. Unfortunately, the newly appointed president has yet to show any significant signs that he is of the mindset to help remedy the problems with this deeply conflicted community. As it currently stands, the association is now facing legal problems of its own as fed up residents are now involved in legal action against the very association that was supposed to protect them. In addition, several other residents are said to begin legal proceedings of their own in the coming months. As the town of Dripping Springs continues to rapidly grow, newcomers may want to look well outside the subdivision Springlake to find the peace they might be looking for.
