For New Neighbors

Welcome to Riverview Estates!  We are a community of single family homes, townhomes and Active Adult homes.  Our community is governed by our Homeowners Association.  See the links below for information that might be relevant to you as a new or prospective homeowner.
Contact our coordinator at coordinator@riverviewhoa.com  with any questions or concerns.
HOA Community Meetings are held yearly. Check the website for updates.  Website access is provided to homeowners only.  Click on the upper left corner of the homepage to request access.
There is one Main Association which governs the community and manages the clubhouse area.  There are also three sub-associations with varying roles and responsibilities: West, Townhome and Active Adult.  Please be sure to understand which you belong to as you discuss your home build or purchase.  Separate dues is required for both Main and sub-associations.  You will receive separate bills from both.
Rules and Regulations are enforced within the community.  Please review in detail and read the documents found under GOVERNANCE to understand community standards.  Upon purchase, all homeowners are bound by the rules of the Riverview Declaration.
Note that approvals are required for external changes to the home including but limited to landscaping, sheds, decks, fences, shutters, doors, and garage doors.  All children's play sets must be of natural materials or earthen tones, or shielded from view.  Please provide this form to Coordinator@riverviewhoa.com for review and approval.  Modifications CANNOT be made until approval has been received.  Violators are subject to fines and/or removal of non-conforming additions.
Commercial vehicles are not allowed within Riverview.  See the Declaration for further detail. 
The recreation area in the community has a clubhouse, pool, play area, picnic pavilion, basketball, tennis and volleyball courts.  It is located at 955 Ramblewood Drive.  The pool is open from Memorial Day weekend to mid September; 9 am to 9 pm daily.  To access some of the areas you will need to pick up a key fob for door access.  Contact our Coordinator@riverviewhoa.com to make arrangements.  Note that fobs are issued only after closing documents have been finalized, dues are current and paperwork completed.  Click here for the form .
