A homeowners association (HOA) or property owners association (POA) is an organization created to maintain the appearance and common property of a group of houses, typically a subdivision.

Tagging

There is no agreed upon tagging scheme for HOAs, particularly in regards to subdivisions within an HOA.

One possible method is to tag the boundary of the HOA as boundary=administrative, with admin_level=10, or whatever is appropriate for the local area. Some HOAs are further divided into neighborhoods, and neighborhoods divided into clusters. Increase the admin_level for each successive level.

Another method is to use landuse=residential in combination with other tags. For more details, see the tagging scheme proposed by Alan Mintz on Talk-us.
