As a modern suburb of Huntsville Alabama, Madison most definitely sports a development tract layout and is sub-divided into many small to large neighborhoods. New residential construct has been booming in the area since the 2006-2007 military BRAC relocation which has bought many new residents to the area.
Given that many of Madison’s subdivisions are relatively new, home owner associations (HOA) are very common and some of them are certainly pro-active in their approach of neighborhood management. Thus it is important to understand local Alabama laws regarding HOA operations.
While the vast majority of HOA’s provide high value services that improve the lifestyle of the neighborhood with common area facilities like swimming pools, hiking trails, play grounds, etc. There have incidents particularly with under construction subdivisions that have given rise to the formation of The Alabama Concerned Home Owners Alliance as an information resource for local home owners.
