There are so many subdivisions in Oswego right now. It is amazing. Does anyone have a favorite subdivision? If you do... why is it your favorite?

Mine is the Fox Chase Subdivision.

I live in Hometown the homes in the back not the detached townhomes, there are nothing wrong with the detached homes , but I really like our subdivision, and we are located right in betwwen two other nice subdivsions River Run and Gates Creek. I think all the subdivisions in Oswego are nice places to live, in fact I have lived here since I was a baby I am now 39 and I would not move for anything, in many ways it is the people who make the subdivisions good or bad.

Just curious. Fox Chase doesn't have any Home Owner Association Fees; which I really like. Just wondering how everyone likes their subdivisions, and what they think if they have to pay a Home Association Fee.
Does anyone live in the new subdivision called Hunt Club? It looks nice, but it is close to the Quarry.

There is a quarry around here? Where is Hunt Club anyway? A lot of the East View kids are going there next year.

I love Gates Creek - I have the best neighbors and the association fees are very reasonable - less than 200 a year. Also, we are conveniently located by many new stores on Orchard and in Yorkville and someday....I hope....there will be train service operating from Mill and Orchard. Its the main reason we located to that part of Oswego.

I will not recommend any particular subdivision, but I will say be careful of HOA's. My experience with my HOA has not been great, and yet I remain on the board for several reasons. First of all, not many people have the time or interest to even attend a meeting. I can barely squeeze my time to handle the job that this involves.
The only time you hear from an "association member" is when you are out trying to mow your lawn and they have a bitch about something that DIRECTLY affects them at that very specific time. For example, a landscaping or fence approval.. then they have to go to the village for a permit. This is quite a hassle and a big pain in the ass for everyone involved. I understand that.
Other people that are on the "board" with act like they have some kind of "power" over the neighborhood. That is another reason I stay - knock off the BS and just get things done. Also, I feel it is very important not to raise HOA fees unless absolutely necessary.
It seems to be the way things are anymore.. just have the attitude that it's OK, it does not matter, just keep charging people! Nonsense.

Then you have the other members on the board hanging out and drinking beer in the garage promising all kinds of BS to their neighbors. Well, guess what.. they can't deliver. The BUDGET has already been set. Then someone looks like the "bad guy".
When it comes to standing up, enforcing and crunching the budget, then you have a lot of unhappy neighbors singling out people. But these ticked off "association members" did not come to the meetings!
I will hang in there until I can find another "association member" that is willing to stand with me. Someone please wish me luck.

To HOA volunteer, I wish you luck, we have an association, and we find flaws of course, we moved into our neighborhood under the impression that there would not be an association, then well what do you know, ours is not to bad, I have heard of worse associations. I still love my neighborhood, major problems do get addressed pretty quickly, then there are some that get addressed and you woner, was that really that important??? but anyway good luck!!!!

To OswegoK, I live in hometown, and we have a few parks, that are nice, I am not sure where you are in Gates Creek, but Hometown where I am is near Hoover and Roosevelt we have a nice park for kids just across from my house, if you are near our area you should check it out, there is also washington Park up on Millstream it is nice also, my kids like both of them.

Do you think if there had been an Association, it would have handled the issues with the Fox Chase ponds?
