We've recently had requests from several of our homeowners, to approve additions to their property that were in conflict with the protective CCR's in our subdivision bylaws. One homeowner wanted to build a fence that would extend up alongside his house toward the front. We denied this because the CCR's specifically prohibit fences that extend forward past the back corners of the house. Another homeowner wanted to erect an aluminum carport over his paved driveway. This would have violated several clauses in the CCR's and we had to deny it. Not to mention, it would have made that whole section of the subdivision look bad. It is no fun having to tell our neighbors that they can't build things they need like this, but the board would not be doing its job if we didn't enforce the restrictions. What do you think about this? Feel feel to post your comments and suggestions here on the blog, or send your ideas to firstname.lastname@example.org. Your feedback is appreciated.
