- Important - Covenants Amending Vote Coming - MEMBERS, PLEASE VOTE!
A Covenants changing vote is coming and members will receive ballots. At issue is the term "matching" with regard to adding structures to properties. This term has caused some consternation and head scratching. A past board once interpreted "matching" to mean that structures like sheds must exactly match the homes' materials. So early on, an owner of an all brick home was advised to build an all brick shed.
Currently, there are approximately a half dozen backyard sheds--all built or installed to code. Three closely match home construction - 2 built by our original builder/developer-- but others are prefabricated with vinyl that matches the home.
Recently, a member requested ARC approval to install a prefabricated shed with customizations - color would match home. But, because this member's home is nearly all brick, the Board is not in 100% agreement whether a vinyl shed would be permitted with a brick home, or vice versa. To build via traditional construction methods an all brick shed is cost-prohibitive, compared to a prefabricated vinyl, and not fair really. Those with vinyl sheds do not have a brick face as all homes have. And, there are other structures, like play gyms and such, that do not match homes at all.
The majority of the board would like to better define matching and make the article more fair as the Covenants do not say matching "in color" or "in materials", etc. Your support is needed.
