University Hills Neighborhood Association  (UHNA) is not a Homeowners Association (HOA).
A Homeowners Association (HOA) is a legal entity that has been created by the developer to a specific subdivision. The HOA manages the planning and marketing of the project, provides for the maintenance of the common areas, and enforces the conditions, covenants, and restrictions (CCRs) of the subdivision. Fees are payable to the HOA for these projects. An HOA is primarily concerned with the internal business of the subdivision.

Neighborhood Associations are often formed by a group of residents who have come together as a legal entity to address issues common to their location. Most neighborhood associations are non-profit 501(c)(4) organizations with elected officers and bylaws. These volunteers meet once a month to discuss social, political, and zoning issues which will impact the residences and businesses found within their area boundaries. These public meetings also provide opportunities for political leaders to meet their constituents and for developers to share blueprints and hear neighborhood input.

A Neighborhood Association is concerned with a specific area or district of the city or suburb. University Hills residents are bound by the City of Austin codes and ordinances which protect the health, safety, and quality of life for the citizens of our neighborhood. (For more information, refer to Code Compliance under the Community Resources page.)
