Welcome to the First Wimmerton Community Association (FWCA) on the web. FWCA was established in January, 1975. We are located at the foot of the Laurel Highlands Mountains in Latrobe, Pennsylvania.
FWCA community consists of both single dwelling homes as well as two patio homes areas, * which all share access to the same common facilities, including a pool. Community members have access to these amenities, providing they adhere to the rules and regulations as covered by a book of Covenants. All members of the community pay a modest monthly assessment fee which pays for weekly trash removal, upkeep of common grounds and use of facilities. The Board of Directors provides oversight for the maintenance of the common areas and facilities.
The Board of Directors is comprised of five (5) elected members and one representative of Wimmer Corporation (original owner of the land and current lease holder of the land where the pool, recreation center and other recreation areas exist) and one representing NDC (Which owns and operates the apartments). The community also has several committees that provide guidance and assistance to both the Board of Directors and the community's members. Activities are frequently scheduled and may be found on our website by clicking on the calendar link. If you are a member or just visiting our website, we hope you enjoy reading about our community and if you have any comments please feel free to e-mail us, we are glad to assist with any questions you may have.
*Wimmer Commons (Duplex patio homes near the entrance of Wimmerton), Wimmerton Place (Duplex and single patio homes behind plan 4 of Wimmerton). Each of these areas have their own set of restrictive covenants and small Boards in addition to the main FWCA covenant book. Wimmer Commons and Wimmerton Place pay additional dues for maintaining property (grass cutting in the summer) and driveway plowing (in winter) which are decided upon by their respective Boards. These two Boards work in conjunction with the main FWCA Board and all applications need to be approved by the FWCA Architectural Committee first before a homeowner can get approval from their respective Board for any changes to the exterior of their homes!
