- Approximately 9,030,000 Californians live in 3,480,000 homes in nearly 44,900 community associations.
- Community associations are private entities, not governments. Residents vote for fellow homeowners to provide leadership—making decisions about operation, administration and governance of the community. Assessments paid by association members cover the costs of conducting association business—such as common area maintenance, repair and replacement, essential services, routine operations, insurance, landscaping, facilities maintenance as well as savings for future needs.
- These residents pay $10 billion a year to maintain their communities. These costs would otherwise fall to the local government
