HOVE covers over eighteen square miles -- almost twelve thousand acres -- contains roughly 11,500 lots and has 157 miles of roads. Development began in the late 1950s, and a trust fund was established by the developer for the maintenance of the many miles of roads (equivalent to about halfway around the island!). Over time, the trust fund proved inadequate, and by the early 1980s, many of our roads were virtually impassable without a 4-wheel drive. HOVE Road Maintenance Corporation (RMC), a 501(c)(4) nonprofit corporation, was established by the Hawaii Third Circuit Court in 1983 for the purpose of rebuilding and maintaining the roads within the subdivision, without assistance or support from the County or State. According to local remembrance, we started out with "a truck, two shovels, and a bucket of bitumen." In 1985 RMC acquired some second-hand equipment, and began rebuilding in earnest. Today, Ocean View has one of the best privately-maintained road systems on the island, and perhaps in the state. As the population of our area continues to grow, we are constantly pressed to keep pace with the times and traffic conditions. "Road Maintenance" now includes stop and street signs, line markings, road patching, repair and resurfacing, shoulder maintenance and line-of-sight clearing. All lot owners within the HOVE subdivision are members of the Road Maintenance Corporation. This website has been developed for the purpose of keeping our members informed, and making it easier for them to communicate with the Board of Directors and the Office Staff.

Lot owners within the HOVE subdivision are members of HOVE RMC and are required by court order to pay the annual road assessment. We are attached to your property deed as Exhibit "A".
HOVE RMC is a non-profit corporation whose sole focus is to maintain and repair the 157 miles of private roadway within this neighborhood. The corporation continually seeks to find the most cost-effective means of managing this task with the ever increasing cost of road materials linked directly to the rising price of petroleum.
As an incentive to members to pay their assessment on time, a discount will be offered to all assessments if paid in full by February 28th. If you are unable to pay in full, we offer a Monthly Payment Plan. Contact the HOVE RMC office if you are unable to pay in full before March 31st.
If the assessment is not paid before March 31st, a $10 Late Fee will be applied. A 12% interest rate will be added to all unpaid accounts at the end of the year. Statement fees will be added to unpaid accounts for additional billing. If payments are not received, the corporation will place a lien on the property and a non-refundable fee of $235.00 will be added to the account. If the property is liened and the assessment remains unpaid, the corporation may seek legal means to collect the debt including a civil suit or eventual foreclosure of the property. The corporation makes every effort to avoid this course of events.
If your account is delinquent, please contact the office immediately to avoid any adverse actions. We have options available.
For members who are unable to pay their annual assessment in full before March 31, a MONTHLY PAYMENT PLAN is available to avoid additional fees. If the account is paid off in full before the end of the year, no fees will be added for delinquency.
We accept checks, money orders, payments by PayPal, Paya Merchant Services or by credit/debit card. Another option is setting up automatic payments. No stamps! No forgetting! Payments are also accepted over the phone and the best payment option is on our Web-site at www.hoveroad.com
