Below are some of the bigger questions asked and common areas that are addressed by compliance. The general reply is to keep the conversation informal. If you prefer the more technical and legal component to a particular situation, please visit town square or ask Goodwin Management to address your concerns.
Below are a few links - one are excerpts from the ACC guidelines that address the issues below. The second is a link to the filed documents for the ACC.
2 trees per lot (4 for corner lots)- as the neighborhood has aged and our trees have grown we understand some small lots might find this challenging. Provide a picture of your lot if you believe a second tree would not fit. The tree canopy of your yard and the neighbors will be used to see if another tree is viable.
Tree stumps are to me removed and not visible.
Trees are native trees. Bushes shaped as trees do not count as a tree.
75% of the yard is to be grass
large areas excluding grass are to be broken up with bushes, plants and flowers. A rock landscape alone is not in compliance.
Dead bushes, dead parts of bushes are to be removed.
If mother nature did not make it and you put it in your front yard it needs to be approved.
Must be kept in good repair and stained. Pre-approved colors Behr Solid and Semitransparent color match: Sable, Russet, Cedar, Chestnut, Chocolate, Woodbridge. You are not limited to these colors, but these colors are expedited for approval and no color swatch is required.
If you repair part of the fence - the new boards must be stained to match the rest of the fence. A striped looking fence will not be in compliance with ACC.
All exterior lighting is to be white.
Flood lights and other external lighting should be shielded from shining in the street or a neighbor's home/window.
Front entry and side entry facing neighborhoods are most affected. Trash receptacles are not to be in plain site from the street. This means leaving them in front of a garage door, the house or fence is not in compliance if it is easily visible from the street. They should be stored in the garage, behind the fence or behind a wall to conceal their presence.
