Architecture

This is shortened, quick information on architecture requirements of our Members.  For the full version, please see the By-Laws page.

Uses and structures. Lots may only be used for residential (non-commercial) purposes. No detached structure may be erected, including carports. Any addition to your dwelling must be approved by the Board or the Architectural Committee. No boats, snowmobiles, or similar motorized or non-motorized vehicles shall be parked in the Common Areas or courts, or on any Lot unless inside a closed door garage. You must remove your vehicles in case of snow, for snow removal from streets. You may have up to two vehicles if your home has a one-car garage, or four vehicles if your home has a two-car garage. No business or noxious or offensive activity shall be carried on upon any Lot or Common Area, nor shall anything be done thereon which may be or become an annoyance or nuisance to the neighborhood.

Alterations, Additions, Colors. Any additions must conform in architecture and material to the original dwelling. Your dwelling may not contain more than three (3) colors, excluding the color(s) of the roof (unpainted materials count as colors). If painting with a different color than the original, you must get prior Board approval. If you request approval, the Board must respond within forty-five (45) days or it will be assumed your request is approved.

Signs. No sign of any kind shall be displayed to the public view on or in any dwelling or Lot or Common Area except a one-family name sign of not more than one hundred and forty-four (144) square inches and a sign or signs designating the development as are approved by the Board.

Garbage and Rubbish. Garbage and rubbish shall not be dumped or allowed to remain on any Lot and shall be stored within the dwelling unit. If contained in a closed receptacle, it may be placed outside the dwelling for collection in accordance with the regulations of the collecting agency and the Association.

Fences, Plant Screening, Masonry. No fence or screening shall be erected or planted except to enclose patios (either built by the Developer or approved by the Board) and in any case, shall not exceed four (4) feet in height. No masonry walls of any height may be built unless they are approved by the Board or the Architectural Committee.

Antennas and Satellite Dishes. Antennas of any type must be confined within the interior of the dwelling unit. Satellite dishes should be placed on the rear roof of the home and not visible to the court.
