Association Maintenance Responsibility

Maintenance responsibilities include all common areas (parks, private roads, walkways, etc.) within the community. The Association assesses its members to fund insurance, maintenance, operations and reserves. Please note that all homeowners and rental residents (if any) are responsible for observing both the Columbia Association Architectural Guidelines and the Community Architectural Committee (CAC) Rules and Standards.

Exterior Modifications

Exterior Modification requires the prior approval of the Architectural Committee. An Architectural Application must be submitted and approved in writing by the CAC before work may commence. For more information, consult the Architectural Review Process and the Columbia Architectural and Landscape Guidelines.

Trash Pickup

Individual unit trash pick-up is the responsibility of each resident and containers must be stored so they are not visible from the street.

Parking

Park your car in your garage, rather than in the driveway or on the street. This allows a clear street for early morning City street sweeping, less chance for vehicle accidents, parking for your visitors and a generally more attractive Association.

Due to the overflow parking for the ferry terminal, Columbia requires a residential parking permit Monday – Friday between 8 AM – 6 PM. Please click on the links below for specific information and to download a parking permit application. Parking permits may be picked up from the Community Offices Monday – Friday, 8 AM – 5 PM.
