The Dunbarton Pines Homeowners' Association (DPHA) is a non-profit corporation created in 1979 and composed of 341 homes governed by the Declaration of Covenants, Agreements and Restrictions (1979) and Bylaws (1980). These documents are available on this Association website.
The Association has the duty and responsibility to maintain the open spaces, common areas and entry ways for the benefit of the subdivision and the members of the Association.
Annual dues are $210 payable in September.
The Commons Areas
A key attraction of Dunbarton Pines is our Commons Areas, which are owned by all homeowners and managed by the Association. There are two main components: the main, or central commons area (a protected woodland area and open field), and the eastern commons area (which contains woods, open fields and two detention ponds, part of the Rouge River Basin). The subdivision also has four entrances (two off Taft and two off Nine Mile) and eleven cul-de-sacs, also maintained by the Association.
The Association licenses PayHOA software that is used to maintain homeowners accounts, bill our annual assessment and track homeowner payments, maintain our vendors and pay vendor expenses, generate financial statements, and communicate to homeowners. The software also provides an Owner's Portal, which registered homeowners can use to setup an automatic debit payment to pay annual dues or to use a credit card to make on-demand payment to their account.
