Five Year Plan – 2018-2022

The Bylaws of the Harbour Towne Condominium Association (“HT”) require that its Board develop a five-year plan. In fulfillment of that responsibility, the HT Board in 2016 commissioned a long-range planning committee of Board members and residents to develop a recommended plan for capital improvements not currently subject to the HT Reserves. The Board pledged to consider the committee’s recommendations and develop a five-year capital improvement plan divided into commitments from the HT’s current reserves and non-mandatory capital improvements.  Click here for the Board’s plan.
