Note: The West Winds Village Board of Directors adopted the Rules listed above in November 2009. Upon review, The Lake Linganore Association (LLA) determined that several provisions of these Rules are inconsistent with LLA covenants and governing documents. It is LLA’s position that although adopted by the West Winds Board of Directors, these inconsistent provisions are contrary to the LLA covenants and governing documents, and are in no way supported by LLA. Additionally, LLA maintains that these Rules may not be enforceable and/or that LLA will not enforce Rules that are contrary to, or inconsistent with LLA covenants and governing documents.

Is Your Gas Mantle Out?

WWHOA Dues & LLA Dues

West Winds is a unique village because there are two sets of HOA dues, one which is paid to the West Winds HOA and another assessment which is paid to the Lake Linganore Association. The dues paid directly to the West Winds HOA cover the liability insurance of the West Winds Board and Committee members, gas mantles, holiday lights, curb trimming, meeting room rental, community minutes, and paper/postage supplies. For an in-depth explanation of LLA dues assessments, contact the Finance Manager at 301-831-6400 ext. 114.
