Tega Cay [†] was developed by the Ervin Company in 1970 and became one of the first master planned communities in South Carolina. The 1,600 wooded acres along Lake Wylie were previously owned by Duke Power Company and became a gated residential community with amenities that included a clubhouse, pools, tennis courts and a golf course. A Property Owners Association was created to protect the interest of the property owners within Tega Cay, work with developers and provide engagement of residents through social events.

A little over a decade later in 1982, a subsequent developer filed bankruptcy and the Property Owners Association led the incorporation of Tega Cay as a city on July 4, 1982. Mayor Tony Tarulli was appointed the first mayor under a strong Mayor form of government, and he represented the property owners during the bankruptcy proceedings. A bankruptcy plan was approved approximately one year later due to the leadership of the Property Owners Association and the newly elected officials.
