The Greens at McGregor Links
Development of our community began in 1997 and was completed six years later. The Greens was approved by the Town of Wilton Board under Local Law No. 1 of 1997 amending the town of Wilton Zoning Ordinance and clearly stating that the roads in The Greens, the grounds and other amenities are owned and will be maintained by the Homeowners Association. There are 163 townhouse homes in six different styles on approximately 43 acres of land bordering McGregor Links Golf Club. We enjoy an easement across some of the golf course land and the golf course enjoys an easement to preserve and maintain the golf course across our land. Although we are located in the Town of Wilton, we have a mailing address of Saratoga Springs, NY 12866 and are a private community.
The full name of the Association is The Greens at McGregor Links Homeowners Association. We were incorporated under the Not-For-Profit Laws of the State of New York on April 18, 1997. A Declaration of Protective Covenants, Restrictions, Easements, Conditions, Charges and Liens was filed on September 12, 1997, and was Revised and Restated by the Members and became effective when it was filed on September 30, 2005. This document is the foundation of the rules that govern the community.
A Board of 5-9 Directors assumes the responsibility for overseeing the day-to-day operation of the community, enforcing the Declaration and maintaining the common property for the benefit of the Members. The Board promotes continuity and uniformity of improvements and repair to personal homes, and of all landscaping to protect property values and preserve architectural integrity. It budgets for long-term care of the property, grinder pumps, roads and contracts for lawn and garden maintenance, waste removal, snow removal, and property management and then bills the costs back to the Members in the form of assessments that are paid monthly. See Article 6 of the Declaration. New Buyers pay a one time fee of $1500 (duly adopted and approved on July 1. 2017) into the Replacement Fund. See Article 8 of the Declaration.
Every owner is a Member of the Association, except when it comes to voting. Only one vote from each home is counted. If an Owner has more than one home in The Greens, he or she can only vote once.
