Hi Everyone ! In the last chat, there was some information about the process for getting approval to put up car ports, sheds etc. We now have an "Alteration/ Upgrade Request Form" that will need to filled out to go before the Board of Directors for approval before any alterations or upgrades may be done. These forms will be available at the office during the open office hours beginning Tuesday, Feb. 20th, 2018. Any alterations or additions that are done without prior approval by the Board of Directors will be subject to possible removal.

Thank you all for your cooperation! - Your Board of Directors
