APPEARANCE/ALTERATION OF BUILDINGS AND GROUNDS
It is important to
safeguard the structural integrity of the buildings for our safety and security.
To provide aesthetic appeal of the condominium buildings, which will help to
protect and enhance their value and our investment, it is essential that their
visual appearance be pleasant, standard and consistent with the architectural
design. Please keep this in mind when choosing decorative items which will be
visible from the outside of the building.

exterior of the buildings nor any of the grounds shall be altered in any way
without written approval from the Board.

proof of order/delay from the resident’s vendor.

common property (for example, roofs, sides of buildings and the common area
around the buildings) is not permitted.

alteration to the interior of any unit may be made without the advance written
approval of the Board of Trustees. Such alterations include, but shall not be
limited to, the moving of walls and installation of new flooring.
For those of you
fortunate enough to have a pet as a companion please have some consideration for
your neighbors. Dogs and cats just put outside and allowed to roam freely do not
endear one’s fellow residents. It’s not very much fun to have to clean one’s
shoes after walking in the wrong place, or to experience temporary heart failure
behind the wheel of a car when a small animal suddenly appears directly in front
of one’s bumper. Please help your pet to be a welcome member of the community.
1. Dogs, cats, caged
birds and tropical fish may be kept as domestic pets, provided they are not kept
for commercial purposes or for breeding. A maximum of two domestic pets is

regardless of number, shall not be maintained, kept, bred, boarded and/or raised
within any unit or on any common grounds.
2. Pets shall not roam
freely on the grounds, but must be carried or leashed and accompanied by their
owners, or a designated responsible person within the Condominium common areas.
3. Pets are not
permitted to soil on the common areas maintained by the landscaper. Pet owners
are responsible for the immediate removal and disposal of any deposits from pets
on any of the common areas.

balcony, behind a unit, or anywhere else on the common grounds.

registered and inoculated as required by law.

registered with The Management Company.
