Homeowners in Valley West and The Lakes are automatically Members of the Valley West Homeowners Association (HOA), which actively works to maintain the common spaces and enhance the quality of life in the Valley West community. The developer turned the Board over to the Members in 2021, and the HOA is now led by a three-member Board.
The HOA is governed by its Covenants and Restrictions, which include its bylaws and design requirements. (Residences in The Lakes must also adhere to requirements described in the Lakes Design Manual.) Mechanisms for enforcement of the Covenants are described in the Rules and Regulations. As of September 2022, HOA dues are $160/quarter ($640/year), applied to each lot.

Comment: Can we fix the path around the little pond/lagoon? I contacted Peak Property and they said to contact the city. I contacted the city but got nothing in return.
Reply from the Board: Thanks for this comment! Peak Property is correct that Meyers Lake is located in Valley West Park, which is a Bozeman city park. Our best suggestion is to continue bringing your concerns to City Parks, which is responsible for this park space. Although the city may allow the HOA to undertake improvements in park space, the HOA Board is reluctant to spend HOA member dues for projects in city parks. (This is your money!)
