Welcome to the website of the Clemson Downs Property Owners Association (CDPOA). Organized in 1980, CDPOA consists of 140 homeowners in townhomes and single-family homes. Clemson Downs is a community of active, involved homeowners rather than one of rental property investors. All homeowners are expected to occupy purchased homes themselves. Any property rented or leased rather than owner-occupied shall be governed by strict reporting requirements.
Common property, including a gazebo for social events and a trail called Woodland Walk over the creek, are maintained by the Association. CDPOA members enjoy the benefits of living within the Clemson city limits and in proximity to Clemson University, which offers many academic, athletic, social, and cultural activities.
CDPOA is governed by a seven-member elected Board of Directors which maintains common properties, enforces restrictive covenants, approves exterior changes to homes, publishes an annual telephone directory and a bi-monthly newsletter, and arranges for regular social gatherings. Annual membership dues are collected in the spring, and homeowners have access to an optional group cable TV contract on favorable terms. The Welcoming Committee greets all new residents of CDPOA and furnishes them with important information, including copies of the bylaws, restrictive covenants, and architectural guidelines. Bylaws, Restrictive Covenants, and Architectural Guidelines are also available for download on this website.
CDPOA properties surround the Clemson Area Retirement Center (CARC), a separate but collaborating community, made up of an independent living apartment complex, assisted living facilities, a memory care unit, and a health care center. Members have access to CARC library and reading room facilities, a beauty shop, and meeting and dining facilities. CDPOA members can also join the wellness (exercise) center for a fee.
If you have any further questions concerning the Clemson Downs Property Owners Association, please contact any member of the CDPOA Board of Directors.
