Community Associations

Are you a community association in need of writing or an update for your governing documents? Paul brings his diverse background as a technical writer, land use planner and facilitator to your association to make this happen — providing a cost-effective, holistic solution.

Paul serves as Project Team Leader your project from beginning to end:
  • Visioning and needs assessment
  • Writing and conducting community surveys
  • Facilitation of homeowners and a Board-chartered subcommittee specific to this process
  • Writing, editing, formatting and branding for the governing documents
  • Final team reviews and adoption
  • A personalized service from beginning to end from a trained, experienced specialist
Paul coordinates this effort, bumper to bumper, with other team members and stakeholders such as attorneys, homeowners, local jurisdictions and your Board. This effort—conducted by a technical writer with a land use planning background and hands-on experience with community associations—not only results in a more cost-effective solution for updating your governing documents, but it also provides you with a professional trained to manage this specialized type of project in all its moving parts. This is a comprehensive assessment, input, review and final branding of your governing documents—intended to provide a polished deliverable done the right way—so your association doesn’t need to revisit this process again for a very long time.
Several types of packages are available to suit your needs.
