 Dwight Young

My wife Rebecca and myself move here 4 years a go from Seattle WA.  I have worked for Ricoh USA for over 20 years the last 7 as a Technical Support Engineer.  My wife and I enjoy the mild winters and appreciate the kind folks of Georgia.     

Shaun Cropper

We originally moved from California into the Magnolia Place subdivision in May 2020 and love it here.  I stepped up to be a board member because I truly care about the quality of our neighborhood and wanted to do my part to keep up our standards.  Taking a look at other surrounding subdivisions, you can see the deterioration that can happen when things are let go.  We are truly blessed to have the board members that have stepped up over the last 20 plus years.

I am married to my wife of 10 years now, Patti.  We have 6 children between the two of us but they are all grown.  Although we do have 3 fur babies in the household!  I’ve been a life insurance agent for the last 17 years.  I enjoy working on the yard and gardening, although the yards here are quite a bit different than the ones in California!

I look forward to getting to know my neighbors and getting the pool ready for the summer!

Zachery Johnson

Zach and his wife Heather moved to their home here in Magnolia Place in the summer of 2015.  They have four children. Zach says they have lived in several different states but so far they love Lawrenceville GA the most. He is a biomedical engineer and travels all over the nation for work. In my free time I enjoy vacations with my family.

Tom Stimpson will remain as ACC Chair and Bob Fowler will be the Treasurer.

IT’S SPRING!  Time to get our homes out of the dreariness of winter!  Let’s be the best looking neighborhood around!

General Business

  • ANY AND ALL work being done on the outside of your home MUST be approved by the HOA.  MOST requests are approved.    For your information, our Covenants say:

Section 6: Article 6.05

No construction or alteration of any structure shall take place without the prior written approval by the ACC of plans and specifications for the landscaping to accompany such construction or alteration.  Guidelines for the landscaping to accompany such construction or alteration of any structure may be included in the Design Standards of the ACC.  No living trees may be cut on any of the lots in the subdivision without express consent of the ACC.

Send an email to info@magnoliaplacehoa.com Or you can fill out the form online to request approval.

  • Please note that requests for work on your home WILL BE DENIED IF YOU ARE NOT CURRENT ON YOUR HOA FEES!
  • If you walk your dog around the neighborhood, PLEASE respect your neighbors and pick up after them.


Our Board members cannot handle all of the tasks needed to maintain our subdivision.

Committees and their duties are below:

Architectural Control Committee

The purpose of the ACC is to assure that any installation, construction or alteration on any lot remain within community standards as set for in the Covenants.  The ACC needs a minimum of 3 members and no more then 5 members.  Each member will serve for one calendar year.

Tom Stimpson is the Chair of the ACC and needs at least 3 people to volunteer!  You may contact him at info.magnoliaplacehoa.com.

Pool Committee

The purpose of the pool committee is to assure homeowners have access to the pool during operating hours.  Volunteers will open in the morning, check chlorine levels, empty filters around the pool, hang phone and First Aid Kit in the pool house.  Volunteers will also close the pool in the evening.  Those duties include putting away phone and First Aid Kit, clean filter traps around pool, pick up any trash left by homeowners, check chlorine levels, straighten pool furniture and clean bathrooms.  We MUST have NO LESS THAN 8 people to volunteer so our pool can run efficiently.

Shaun Cropper is the Chair of the Pool Committee and can be contacted at info@magnoliaplacehoa.com.

Welcome committee

The purpose of this committee is once given names and addresses of new homeowners, put together a welcome gift (to be determined by the committee) and deliver in a timely manner.  We need 2 more volunteers.
