Notice: Due to COVID-19 ( Corona virus), the Fountain Hills Community Center has cancelled all events. Therefore the Annual General Meeting (AGM) that was scheduled for Saturday March 21st at 9:00 AM at the Fountain Hills Community Center was cancelled. Out of concern for the health of our members and the Community, the NPOA Board of Directors took the following actions:
The NPOA Board of Directors sent the Nominating Committee Report to all the Delegates on Tuesday, March 17th and asked them to respond with any nominations from the “floor”. That email also served as the “Call to Public”. This information was also posted on the website so any NPOA member could see and respond to it. That report is archived here.
The NPOA Board of Directors worked diligently to provide you with the same information that would have been covered at the NPOA Annual General Meeting.

Welcome to the website of the Neighborhood Property Owners’ Association of Fountain Hills, Arizona, Inc. (NPOA).
This website was developed to assist property owners within Fountain Hills neighborhoods covered by NPOA guidelines. Not all neighborhoods in Fountain Hills are affiliated with the NPOA. To find out whether your property is located within NPOA jurisdiction, check the Jurisdiction section of this website.
The NPOA was formed as an Arizona Nonprofit Corporation in 1992 by Fountain Hills residents dedicated to preserving the beauty of local neighborhoods by upholding the development guidelines initiated by McCulloch Properties, the master developer of Fountain Hills. You can find out more about the NPOA History
These guidelines serve as standards for architectural development and are codified in the Neighborhood Development Guide, which is enforced by the Association’s primary working committee-the Neighborhood Committee of Architecture (NCOA).
The NCOA, which meets at 8:30 a.m. every Tuesday, maintains architectural control of Member plats. This entails review of building plans for new construction and all other architectural alterations, including but not limited to repainting, demolitions, remodels/additions, porches, patios, walls, fences, solar, pools, awnings, gazebos, BBQs, etc. Appropriate permit fees and compliance deposits apply. The NPOA does not provide Members with insurance.
The NPOA is not a homeowners association (HOA) or Planned Community, as defined by Arizona’s Planned Community Act, and collects no regular dues or assessments from Member property owners. The NPOA is an Arizona Nonprofit Corporation with authority to enforce deed restrictions.
The Association’s authority is rooted in its recorded Declaration of Reservations, which applies to all plats under NPOA jurisdiction-some 4,100 lots in Fountain Hills. The Declaration of Reservations is a contract, the terms of which are deemed accepted by property owners upon taking ownership. The Declaration of Reservations is part of the deed and is included in the title package.
Participation in the NPOA is not voluntary. If a lot is within NPOA jurisdiction, the property owner is a Member of the NPOA-even though he or she may not have participated in the plat’s original vote to join the Association. Members enjoy the benefits and protections afforded by the NPOA and must follow the Neighborhood Development Guide during initial construction and later maintenance or improvement of their property.
