John's Woods is a unique neighborhood of about 80 contemporary and traditional homes within the Lake Grove area of the city of Lake Oswego (Clackamas County) Oregon, USA. The neighborhood is both private and secluded, yet minutes away from shopping, parks and hiking paths, restaurants, post offices, dog parks, and schools. There is easy access to nearby highways (l-5, I-205, I-217), making it convenient for travel to neighboring communities, including Portland, Beaverton, Tigard, Tualatin, and West Linn.
John's Woods Home Owner's Association (JWHOA) is the neighborhood association for John's Woods. It is incorporated under Oregon law (JWHOA, Inc.) and governed by a 5-member board of directors voted upon by neighbors at biannual meetings. The board is charged with informing residents of neighborhood rules (i.e., "Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions" or "CC&R's") that homeowners agree to abide by when purchasing a home within the John's Woods boundaries. Other functions of the JWHOA board are (i) to maintain common areas within its boundaries, including two entranceways, (ii) to provide a common voice to deal with city/county issues that impact the neighborhood, (iii) to organize yearly pickup of yard debris, and (iv) to coordinate other neighborhood activities, as needed. The architectural subcommittee of the board also provides guidance to residents regarding CC&R-related choices of exterior building materials.
Required annual dues for homeowners are $90 per year, and are billed in October.
