Frequently asked questions
How much are the HOA dues?
Greenwood Point's neighborhood dues are only $250 a year! This small fee allows our volunteer HOA to maintain our shared spaces like the beach park, mailboxes, green belts, sidewalks, etc.
Can I park my boat in my driveway?
As a lakeside community, we understand that many of our residents have watercrafts and trailers that make living here so much fun! Unfortunately, having those objects parked in driveways and on the street can make for unsightly views for the neighbors and we don't allow them to be parked there long-term. We do want to make it easy for our residents to do necessary regular maintenance or temporary storage, which is why you may see vessels parked at resident's homes for up to a week at a time.
Who has access to the beach park?
To be fair to our residents we ask that you do not invite friends and family to the park without you there. Our park can get very busy on sunny days and we want to make sure that those that live here can utilize the park comfortably. However, we realize that you may have friends or family in town occasionally, and that your children may have caretakers that will accompany them to the beach park.
What if I need to improve the exterior of my home?
Changes to the exterior of your home will require a Modification Form to be submitted to the Architecural Committee for approval. This is generally a very easy process, and our ACC is great about getting back quickly to our residents. One of our ACC members is an interior designer and is available to provide quick complimentary consults on changes you'd like to make.

What if I need to remove trees from my property?
There definitely are some rules about removing trees in Greenwood Point, but that is under the juristiction of The City of Issaquah. They have a handout to find out whether you require a notification or permit, and a whole page dedicated to tree removal.
What happens when a resident violates the rules or covenants?
Please know how much our volunteer board cares for our residents. Our highest priority is to serve our neighbors with compassion and fairness. Occasionally we have a resident that may not know the rules, or we get a complaint from a neighbor and we have to take action. However, we have truly wonderful people living in this neighborhood, and we rarely have to issue notifications or fines for continued deviation to the CCRs, Bylaws and Rules.
Can I moor my boat at the neighborhood beach park?
That's a great question for the City of Issaquah! You can contact Tina Contreras who is the DNR Aquatics Land Manager for our area. She can tell you whether you're able to moor a boat near the beach park and the subsequent permit(s) you may need for moorage.
Can I volunteer for the board or plan a neighborhood event?
Yes and yes please! We on the board are very excited to get back to socializing with our neighbors! If you'd like to volunteer, please contact us and we'll get you started at our next board meeting.
Why should I call 811 before I dig?
When do I need a permit?
This is a great question for The City of Issaquah! Greenwood Point HOA isn't responsible for residents obtaining permits for interior or exterior projects on their home. However, that doesn't mean you don't need one! Most improvements on a residential lot within the City require a permit.
