Developer-HOA relations continue beyond build-out.  Successfully managed relations make the HOA an ally, not an enemy.  The alternative is a neighborhood government with an us vs. them attitude that can lead to litigation.

Senior Management, Division leadership & Development Team members are aware of HOAs but hope to hear little from them.  HOAs are an example of prevention being better than a 10 alarm response.
