The Purpose and History of Lake Ida Property Owners’ Association

The business and purpose of this HOA shall be to enhance the community by maintaining property values, neighborhood standards, protecting our community from crime and acting to make changes or deny changes that would enhance or jeopardize the collective interests of the members. The board will undertake any activities whether political, charitable or otherwise considered to directly or indirectly assist in maintaining the objectives herein stated.

David Henninger spearheaded the formation of the Lake Ida Property Owners Association in 1988. David and other residents were concerned initially with a growing petty crime problem such as car break-ins. The Association was formed to deal with this problem and then grew to include other issues such as beautification, house of the month, etc.

  • Working with the City and County and Mr. Cornell to put the dog park on the west side of the Lake and then give the land on N.W. 9th Street to the City for a passive Cornell Park in our neighborhood
  • Working with the City to develop Design Guidelines for the neighborhood
  • Working with the City to update laws that would affect Sober House issues
