Welcome to Lochmoor Club! You have picked a wonderful neighborhood to call home. We are a connected community, which is helped in part by the Lochmoor Club website, the POA's email notifications and newsletters, and the neighborhood's closed-group Facebook page.
To help you get settled into your new home and community, we have provided some important information below. If you have any other questions, please email the POA at email@example.com. We will do our best to help you.
Registering with the POA
It is important for new residents to register with the POA. This is necessary so the POA has current information for dues billing as well as email addresses so communications can be sent. To register, residents should send an email with their name, address and contact information to firstname.lastname@example.org.
For those who use Facebook, you are welcome to join our closed group by asking to be added to the Facebook page.
Yearly dues are $600 per lot and are payable no later than March 31 of each year. Checks should be sealed in an envelope and deposited in the POA's mailbox at the front of the subdivision (by the pool parking lot). Lot owners who want to mail the checks should send them to Lochmoor Club POA, 5000 SW Westchester Road, Bentonville, AR, 72713.
Effective October 1, 2017, a one-time $350 Recreational Amenities Package (RAP) fee will be collected for all house ownership transfers (sales). One pool key will be provided to the new homeowner upon collection of the fee. Additional keys or replacement keys must be purchased for $25 each.

Trash and recycling service is provided by Republic Services, and containers are picked up Tuesday morning (Phase III - Buffington) and Wednesday morning (Phases I&II).

Please note, all trash, recycling, and yard waste containers must be placed out of sight (in the garage or behind the fence) except on trash day.
A yard waste collection service runs from April to November, and a special bin is used for such materials. These bins are collected on the same day as trash and recycling. For more information or to sign up online, click here.
