The March news of a possible master-planned community coming to Victoria leaves some with mixed feelings about bringing in a new development to Victoria - a move which could mean a new homeowners association is on its way.

Some homeowners believe associations maintain the property values and add security by setting rules and regulations. Because the associations are made up of elected or appointed members, they may not demonstrate unfair practice while enforcing regulations.

Owning a home is the American dream, but is being a part of a homeowners association truly good for the neighborhood you call home?

Pro: Practice maintains value of property, adds safety

Con: Members could experience unfair practices
