POA Services

The Carnes Crossroads Property Owners’ Association (POA) office provides a number of services for residents, including:

  • Maintenance of common property (trails, pools, parks, the Green Barn, etc.)
  • Street sign maintenance
  • Select right of way maintenance in town areas
  • Enforcement of restrictions & rules outlined in the community Covenants

In addition, the POA office serves as the primary source of information for owners, using newsletters and this community website as key tools for resident communications.

Finally, the POA also seeks to foster a sense of community by helping to coordinate and promote social, educational and recreational programs and events for residents.

All property owners become members of the community’s residential property owners association. In addition, a separate association oversees the community’s business and commercial areas. The associations are administered by a professional staff that is headquartered on Daniel Island, and holds office hours at the Carnes Crossroads Information Center. …Read More

About the Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions (CC&Rs)

Covenants, also called “governing documents,” are non-governmental, legally-binding restrictions that apply to land and land owners. At Carnes Crossroads, there are two primary sets of covenants that correspond to each of the property owners associations: the Carnes Crossroads Community Association, Inc. (CCCA) and Carnes Crossroads Town Association (CCTA).

The Covenants are legal instruments that are recorded in the official land records office for Berkeley County. They describe in detail the rights and responsibilities of property owners and of each of the associations. All property owners should have been provided with a copy of the covenants by their attorney at closing. They are also available in hard copy or digital format through Property Owners Association office. To view the Covenants, please click here.

To download POA annual budgets, forms and other documents, please visit the Resources section of this site.
