Results of the 2014 Annual Meeting:The 2014 Annual Meeting was held on March 11th .
The main item discussed at the meeting was the clarification of building requirements related to garages, sheds, and similar storage structures. A vote was taken and approved to add language to the By-Laws to prohibit these structures from having a front-facing door (opening). The exact language approved is:
All garages, storage buildings, barns (open or enclosed), car ports, sheds, and/or any other structure erected on any lot shall be positioned so that the largest entrance/opening to the structure is facing away from the roadway. If a lot is a corner lot, the “roadway” shall be considered that road that is used for the property address. Structures with one or more open sides such as car ports, pole barns, and “lean-to” structures shall not be permitted if such structure is viewable from the roadway, unless the structure has at least one wall and that wall is facing the roadway to block the view of the contents of the structure. No building or structure shall be placed in front of the house. The setback distance of all structures from the roadway shall equal or exceed the setback distance of the house from the roadway at a minimum, and be in accordance with the Deed Restrictions unless otherwise stated.
The Architectural Control Committee (ACC) may grant a waiver in the event that the layout of the lot is not conducive to positioning the structure with the largest entrance/opening facing away from the roadway.
All structures must meet the architectural standards of the community and approvals and/or waivers are granted at the discretion of the ACC. Building materials (siding finishes, roofing, paint and trim) used on such structures shall generally match the materials used on the lot’s house.
