About Us

The Clearwood Community Association is a gated Home-Owners Association about 10 miles South-East of Yelm. Our community was developed by Weyerhaeuser Cooperation and incorporated under RCW 24.03 in 1974. In addition to our amenities below we own and operate a large Group-A water system within the community. Our community has many volunteer opportunities as we are governed by a volunteer Board of Directors which is responsible for the oversight and safekeeping of the Community and its corporate assets. There are many committees that assist the Board in its function and serve the community as a whole. See volunteering for more information


We currently have in place a Professional Management Team to oversee the general, day-to-day operations of the Association in its administrative and maintenance functions. This includes oversight of all staff, projects, and the coordination of various supporting efforts for the better service of our Members. The Management Team reports to the President of the Board of Directors and is responsible to the Board as a whole.  For information on this relatively recent transition, Click Here.
