Over the last year, the board has heard the request to better enforce our covenants. We are making a concerted effort to do that this year. We are focusing on a few of the covenants that have the biggest impact on curb appeal and home values. We’re listing the ones we are prioritizing here to give everyone a chance to make any necessary adjustments during spring cleaning. _________________________________________________________
Section 5. No boat, boat trailer, bus, trailer, motor home or any similar item shall be stored on any lot for a period of time in excess of 24 hours if such item is visible from the street.
Section 7. No livestock, insects or poultry may be kept on any property. Usual household pets (cats, dogs, rabbits, hamsters, reptiles) may be kept except for the purposes of breeding or commercial use.
Section 9. No temporary house, trailer, garage, shack or tent shall be erected on any of the lots.
Section 10. No lumber, metals, bulk materials, refuse or trash shall be kept, stored, or allowed to accumulate on any lot. An exception is lumber, metals, bulk materials which is usual in the maintenance of a private residence. Those items must be stored in such a manner that it cannot be seen from adjacent and surrounding property.
Section 27. No obnoxious, offensive, or illegal activities shall be carried on upon any Lot. Nor shall anything be done on any Lot which may be or may become an annoyance or nuisance to the neighborhood. This includes lawn maintenance as un-mowed or unkempt lawns attract snakes, rodents, and other pests. Additionally, unkempt lawns affect the home values of the homes near them.
Residents in violation of these specific covenants will receive notification by mail, giving a reasonable amount of time to correct the issue.
