Homeowners' Associations, Neighborhood Associations, and Crime Watch Groups

What is a Homeowners Association?

A homeowners association (HOA), unlike a neighborhood association (NA), is a formal legal entity created to maintain common areas and enforce private deed restrictions and covenants.
  • Membership is mandatory for all property owners within the boundaries of the association.
  • Members are required to pay established maintenance and carrying fees.
  • Homeowners associations have the legal authority to enact and enforce maintenance and design standards above and beyond those required by City ordinance.
Homeowners associations are corporations with formal bylaws and a governing board. Typically homeowners associations hire a property management company to handle maintenance and enforcement issues.

HOA Registration

Click here to Register your HOA or NA with the City of Plano. Use the same link to update your HOA's contact information. Please allow seven to 10 business days for your registration to appear online.

The City of Plano maintains an online contact database as a courtesy for all mandatory and voluntary homeowners associations (HOAs) and neighborhood associations (NAs) in Plano. Associations must submit the information they wish to be made available to the public through this registration tool and the information is displayed through an interactive map and database system.

The information provided will be made available to City departments for official business activities, such as notifications for zoning requests, development activity, and community improvement projects. The contact database is also used by potential homebuyers, realtors, management companies, title companies, insurance companies, and residents in need of HOA contact information.

Note: Information from previous HOA registrations and updates will not be used to create the new database; registration is voluntary and a registrant may provide as much or as little information as you like.  Registration is required to qualify for the following programs and services offered by the Neighborhood Services Department, including the Pop-Up Party Trailer and Neighborhood Vitality and Beautification Grant Program.

In order to be eligible for these programs and services, you must provide at least the following information
  • Name of Association
  • Name of contact person
  • Phone number OR email address of contact person
  • Boundaries of HOA
