The Zapata subdivision has architectural guidelines (both residential and commercial) which govern specifications for property development. At the time of purchase, the seller or their agent should have provided you with these documents. The ZHA is governed by Colorado State statutes and Alamosa County regulations. Anyone who buys land or a home in the Zapata Subdivision is a member of the HOA and is required to pay HOA dues.

Buying a home is a huge decision and investment, therefore it is important that you know some of the implications of buying in a particular HOA.
