New Neighbor Information
As a resident, you're one of 551 home owners in our neighborhood. Harrison Pond began its development in 1988. Since then, Harrison Pond has had the honor of hosting the Parade of Homes two years in a row. Those homes set the tone for the style and comfort of the rest of the homes in our neighborhood.
Since it's completion in 2005, all our residents enjoy our beautiful managed community.
One of the responsibilities of every homeowner is to pay the yearly assessment. The assessment covers the care and maintenance of the seven entrances to the neighborhood, pond and fountain maintenance, maintaining the gazebo, stocking the pond with fish, common area green spaces including landscaping, sprinkler systems and mulching, pool maintenance and management, the playground, street signs, and any emergencies that arise.
By moving into the Harrison Pond community, you have contracted with the Association to pay a yearly assessment. The Board determines the assessment rates based on the payments received by all neighbors. The Board of Trustees is empowered to exercise the placement of liens and subsequent foreclosures on all homeowners who are not in good standing with their assessment payments.
About Harrison Pond
Harrison Pond is named after Mr. Harrison, the original owner who was a lawyer and "Gentleman Farmer." Harrison Pond began as a horse farm when the Rocky Fork Hunt Club used to hold fox hunts on the property. The original Harrison homestead was located at the site of our pool & shelter house. The remaining land was cornfield, woods, and the pond.
As late as 1992, our neighborhood was actually part of New Albany, though was subsequently annexed to Gahanna. This is why we have a New Albany mailing address: for the convenience of the original homeowners it was never changed. The three corral areas along Morse Road are still owned and maintained by The New Albany Company, but all our services come from the City of Gahanna, and of course, we are part of Gahanna School System.
Now that our neighborhood is complete, we have 551 homes, a pool and pool house, the big pond surrounded by a walking path and Gazebo. We've built a playground by the pool, and on the eastern end of the neighborhood we have Headley Park, which is home to the Gahanna League soccer fields.
