Tyler Walk is a community of 346 homes located in beautiful and historic Newtown Township, Bucks County, Pennsylvania. The development was established in 1986 and contains a mix of townhomes and single homes. Our community borders Tyler State Park and is part of the Council Rock School District.
The Tyler Walk Homeowners Association (HOA) is a non-profit organization that sets the rules and regulations for homeowners in the Tyler Walk development. Our goal is to preserve the look and life of Tyler Walk, maintain property values, and assure pleasant and harmonious living for our residents and their guests. Individuals who purchase property within Tyler Walk automatically become members of the HOA and are required to pay Association fees. The Association is run by a Board of Directors consisting of five residents who have been elected by a vote of our homeowners.
Our Homeowners Association fees are $158 per quarter for each unit.
The quarterly fees cover the costs of ground maintenance of the common areas, maintenance and repair of the HOA facilities (clubhouse, pool, tennis courts, and playground), the cost of our property managers, the cost of lifeguards at the pool, and insurance of the HOA facilities.
No, each resident is reponsible for contracting with a private trash vendor themselves. The most widely used trash vendors are: Waste Management (www.wm.com), Republic Services (www.republicservices.com), McCullough Trash (www.mcculloughrubbish.com), and Whitetail Disposal (www.whitetaildisposal.com).
The Board typically meets on the fourth Tuesday of each month at the Tyler Walk Clubhouse by the pool However, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the Board has been meeting via video teleconferences.
Yes. The HOA has established standards to maintain the quality of the appearance of our community. Certain changes are permitted with prior approval, while other changes are not permitted. Our Rules and Regulations describe what is and what is not permitted. For permitted changes, residents are required to submit an Architectural Change Request (ACR) Form prior to making any change to the exterior of the property. Interior changes do not require the approval of the HOA.
Residents should submit an ACR form whenever they are replacing existing materials on the outside of the home, or changing the exterior appearance of the home. This applies to replacing material even when the new material looks identical to the old material. The following are examples of some of the changes/replacements to the exterior of your home that require approval: roof, siding, drainage systems, patios, steps, decks, windows, doors, garage doors, driveways, shutters, gutters, landscaping, post and rail fencing, sheds, privacy screens, and trees.
The ACR Form can be found in the Forms section of this website.
The form should be filled out in full and sent to the property manager, Brian Stedman of Continental Property Management, 975 Easton Road, Suite 102, Warrington, PA 18976. If you have questions about the form, you can call Carol Oliveira at (215) 343-1550.
The ACR form should be submitted to the property manager for approval at least 45 days prior to the start of work on the exterior change. Once received by the property manager, a letter acknowledging the receipt of the request will be mailed back to the resident. If the resident does not receive an acknowledgment, they should contact the property manager. The HOA has 45 days to review each ACR once it is received.
We do realize that in certain circumstances an approval is needed sooner than 45 days. For example, if you have a leaking roof, that repair should be made as quickly as possible. In the case of emergencies, please note on the form that your requested change is an emergency, and then the HOA will do its best to expedite the process.
Once your ACR form has been submitted, you should expect to hear from the property manager via phone or email with either questions about your form, or the decision of the HOA. A formal letter will also be sent in the postal mail letting you know if the requested change has been approved or rejected.
You can be fined $250 and you may need to undo the changes. Ongoing failure to comply with our rules and regulations can result in additional fines. The Board feels it is extremely important to maintain the quality of the appearance of our community which benefits all of our residents and our property values.
On the ACR form, you will describe the change being requested, and the dates that you would like the work to be performed.
The ACR should also include a diagram showing the work to be done and its respective position on the property, a copy of all applicable building permits, and certificate of general liability insurance of the contractor, if applicable.
If your ACR form is not approved by the HOA, you have the right to understand why it was not approved, and request an appeal hearing to present your case in person to the HOA Board of Directors. Any resident requesting an appeal should contact the property manager.
The pool is open from Memorial Day weekend to Labor Day weekend. From May 27, 2023 to June 18, 2023, the pool is open on Saturdays and Sundays only (and Labor Day). From June 24, 2023 to September 4, 2023, the pool is open 7 days a week. Daily hours are noon to 8pm, with one exception: for the week of August 28th to September 1st, the pool will be open from 4pm to 8pm. Please show your pool tags to the lifeguard and sign into the logbook upon entrance to the pool each and every visit.
For new residents, pool tags will be provided when they join the community and should be kept for as long as they remain residents of Tyler Walk. Additionally, pool stickers will be distributed to all residents at the beginning of each pool season and are to be applied to the pool tags. Replacement pool tags can be requested from the Property Manager at (215) 343-1550.
If, during inclement weather, the pool is not opened at the normal start-up time, and if the weather does not clear by 4:30 p.m., the pool will be closed for the day. If the weather clears prior to 4:30 p.m., then the pool will be opened for the balance of the day. If inclement weather develops any time while the pool is open or if there is lightning in the area, the lifeguard will temporarily close the pool and have everyone leave the pool area. If the weather clears at least two hours prior to normal closing time, the pool will reopen for the rest of the day.

A pool rental agreement must be submitted to the HOA in advance for approval. In addition, a certified lifeguard is needed to be hired for the duration of the party. We hope to be able to make the pool available for rentals in future seasons.
