Welcome to Disharoon Ridge Unit Owners Association Website


The Board of Directors of the Disharoon Ridge Unit Owner’s Association (DRUO) is delighted you are interested in our community. Our goal is to provide residents with needed information to properly navigate a great experience while staying in our community and to provide copies of our governing documents to parties needing these legal instruments, (please see Governing Documents Page).


Consider downloading the free Utilities Inc. phone app “eyeonwater” to monitor your water usage and detect leaks while you are not in your condo.  Detecting a running toilet or a small leak in a timely manner can save you a great deal of money.  See the details on the FAQ page in the discussion on the cost of utilities and have your water account number available when registering.

Paying you assessment fees:  Instructions for paying 2022 assessment fees have been sent to all owners by email and are also posted on this website on the Owner’s Roster and Assessments web page.
