SMA Board Member Responsibilities

The Sonata Maintenance Association Board of Directors responsibilities consist of the following:

  • Maintain, protect, and enhance the value of SMA's property
  • Maintain financial records and other important documents
  • Administer the Association as per the governing documents and relevant laws
  • Enforce the governing documents that will benefit all other member associations it serves

Provisions for rules and regulations and authority for the enforcement by our Board are contained in the Declaration of Restrictions for Sonata Maintenance Association, which is a statement of restrictions applicable to ownership of common property, recreational areas, and open space not under the responsibility of the either the Sonata HOA, Allegro, and Patio I and II Associations. In addition, the Sonata Maintenance Association Board of Directors oversees two important Committees essential to all the homeowners in the entire development.  The Landscape Committee represents the Board  Directors in carrying out the maintenance responsibilities that will perpetuate the long term beauty of our community and make recommendations to the Board of Directors as to future improvements and cost saving measures.  The Finance Committee provides guidance to the Treasurer and Board as to the best practices of financial management and planning tools.

Mark LaBianca, President

  • Sonata Homeowner since 2000
  • Retired Electrical Engineer
  • Single Family Board of Directors for 6 years
  • Sonata Maintenance Board since January 2009
  • Small Aircraft Pilot, Certified Scuba Diver, Stock Trader and Real Estate Investor

I am fully committed in maintaining our beautiful community for all Sonata Residents for years to come.  I along with others on our committee were resourceful in getting approximately $30,000 so far from our claim for Sonata‚Äôs fire loss incurred from the 2007 fires.  These monies will go a long way in restoring our open space and shoring up our reserves.

Finding ways to keep our HOA fees low while keeping our property values high and our community safe is why I serve on our SMA Board.
