Wesleyan Hills Association

All residents in Wesleyan Hills are members of the umbrella homeowners’ association called the Wesleyan Hills Association.  The Association maintains the 30 acres of land in the community owned by all and called Common Land.  This includes the ponds, the lawns around the ponds, the three miles of footpaths, the four bridges on the paths, and the Barns complex.  The Association also enforces the covenants and restrictions

The Association is run by a Board of Directors consisting of six to nine volunteer residents who meet on the second Monday of each month at 5:15pm in the Little Barn.  They are elected by the Wesleyan Hills Council for five-year terms at their June meeting and begin the following October and end in September of the 5th year.

Minutes of the Board are posted in the “Residents only” section of this website after approval.

 President:    Jocyce Rossitter
Vice President   Thomas Hutton
 Treasurer:    Louise Astin

The Association is financed by semi-annual assessments to all residents based on the Middletown Grand List.  The Board of Directors sets the mill rate each June.  In 2014 the semi-annual assessments ranged from $73 to $308

Mini-Neighborhoods:  Most streets of single-family homes and each condo complex make up one of the 31 Mini-Neighborhood associations. Each home has a vote (renters have half a vote and the unit owner has half a vote).  These associations should have an annual meeting between September 1 and September 15 to elect a treasurer and two representatives to the Wesleyan Hills Council.  The treasurer receives the check for the 15% rebate from the semi-annual Wesleyan Hills Association’s assessments for the Mini-Neighborhood to decide how to use it to improve their neighborhood.  (If there is no treasurer, no check will be sent.)

Wesleyan Hills Council: The Wesleyan Hills Council is made up of the elected representatives of each Mini-Neighborhood.  The first meeting of the year is the third Monday in September.  Thereafter the Council then meets on the first Monday of five additional months at 7pm in the Little Barn including a June meeting at which the Council shall elect a member of the Board of Directors to succeed any member whose term will expire the following October. Anyone considering serving on the Board of Directors should introduce themselves to the Council prior to June. The Council is a place to ask questions of the Association and to suggest actions of the Board of Directors.
