2020 Assessment Increase Notice

2020 Assessment Increase Notice

Dear Brookfield Owners,

The Board of Directors has reviewed and approved the 2020 budget for the community, and effective with the January 1, 2020 assessment there will be an increase of 5%. The new assessment amount will be $88.00 per quarter. The assessment increase will cover regular maintenance and also continuing to fund the reserve account.  Statements are mailed in advance and we are providing all owners advance notice of this new increase effective January 1, 2020.

The following below are several different payment options when making your quarterly assessment payments. Please note all payments should be made payable to Brookfield Owners Association, Inc. Please do not make payments payable to CMA as it will delay applying your payment to your account and may result in return of payment.

  • Online – Paylease

CMA works with a 3rd party company, Paylease, to offer our owners a convenient, fast and easy access when needing to make payments. Through Paylease the following credit cards are accepted: Visa, Mastercard, American Express, and Discover.

Visit the CMA website at www.cmaaustin.com and click Make a Payment, or go directly to Paylease at www.paylease.com.  Follow the online instructions for credit card or bank account payments.  You will be required to create an account using your Association account number that can be found on each statement.  Recurring payments are offered.

*Fees for credit card payments are $3.95 + 3.5% of the amount to be paid

*Fees for bank account payments are $3.95

  • MAIL a check with your statement stub to P.O. Box 66817, Phoenix, AZ 85082-6817. Ensure the payee is listed as your association and note your account number on each payment.
  • ACH Automatic Withdrawal from your checking or savings account.  Assessments will be drafted between the 1st and 5th of the month for the assessment amount due.  To enroll, complete and return the ACH form.
  • Bill Pay through your personal bank.  Make check/payment payable to your Association and reference your account number. Mail payment to Association Name, P.O. Box 66817, Phoenix, AZ 85082-6817.
  • Over the Phone payments are not recommended, however if needed, can be made over the phone by calling CMA. These payments will be processed using Paylease and above noted fees will be applied in addition to a $5.00 processing fee.

Payments will be processed faster if mailed directly to the processing center at P.O. Box 66817, Phoenix, AZ 85082-6817.  Mailing payments to the CMA office, or hand delivering, slows the processing time of payments being applied, thus resulting in late fees being assessed.  Please update your records and mail all payments to P.O. Box 66817, Phoenix, AZ 85082-6817.

Sincerely,
Vangie Bocanegra, CMCA
Managing Agent for Brookfield Owners Association, Inc.

Playscapes Closed for Remodel

Playscapes Closed for Remodel

Brookfield Homeowners and Residents,

As you are aware, the Association has contracted with Grounds for Play to remove our existing playscapes and install our new playscapes and safety equipment.

If you would like to see mockups for each park, please see below:

playscape_big_kids_park
playscape_toddler_park

The toddler park will also have fence around the playscape as an additional safety measure.

The project was slated to start in a few weeks but the playscapes and equipment have arrived early and the contractor is able to start work immediately. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. We believe you’ll be incredibly happy with the new playscapes and the wait will be worth it! As a reminder, Northtown MUD has a few different playscape options in the park along Battenburg Trail.

Please use caution in our parks and stay away from the playscape areas while construction is taking place. Both areas will be secured with caution tape and barricades. Please do not remove the barricades or the caution tape.

We will send out further communications when the work is complete and the playscapes are open for business.

We look forward to seeing the new playscapes and shade structures.

Thank you,
Board of Directors

Fireworks Prohibited

Fireworks Prohibited

Brookfield Owners and Residents,

As we approach the 4th of July, we’d like to remind all homeowners and residents that fireworks are strictly prohibited in Brookfield. The use of fireworks will result in an incurable violation and $50 fine for each instance.

Fireworks create a significant safety concern for both property and life in Central Texas. Both the City of Austin and City of Pflugerville have ordinances banning them for the same reasons.

Please respect your neighbors with small children, PTSD, and pets and refrain from using fireworks. There are several controlled fireworks shows taking place in the Austin area including the popular Austin Symphony Orchestra Free 4th of July Concert and Fireworks at Vic Mathias Shores (formally Auditorium Shores) and the Pflugerville Pfirecracker Pfestival at the Pfield (Pflugerville Stadium).

As in 2018, we will have contracted security guards patrolling the neighborhood over the holiday in addition to relying on the community to enforce our CC&Rs. If you see fireworks in the neighborhood, please contact Certified Management via email at frontdesk@cmaaustin.com. Please include the address of the offender, date and time, and a photo of the violation.

Thank you,
Board of Directors
Brookfield Owners Association
