Association leadership may formally reserve the package in January of each year for block party events falling between May 1 and Oct. 31.

A homeowners’ association is a formal organization that is made up of property owners and is responsible for the governance, maintenance, and upkeep of the neighborhood.The groups establish a declaration of covenants and a set of bylaws must be filed in office of the recorder with the county.

The declaration and bylaws include such information as:
By law, all condominiums in Ohio must have a “unit owner association” that includes all owners. The condo association as they are commonly called, starts with a declaration outlining common areas and other details that is placed on file with the county recorder’s office. The association is managed by a board of directors. The board of directors can enact budgets, levy assessments, as well as enforce the declaration, bylaws, and rules of the condo. The board also has the right to make rules and manage the common areas and to grant permission to alter a limited common area or element.
In order to support faster response and better tracking of requests, the City of Dublin uses JustFOIA to collect, respond to and manage public information requests.
JustFOIA is a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) online application that helps streamline the open records request process for the community and improve efficiencies in getting requested information quickly and accurately.
The application lets community members submit requests for all city records, including police reports. Commonly requested information includes accident reports, copies of resolutions and body-camera video.
