Owen: please read the 2nd amended restrictive covenants on the web site. The current rules are: noise moratorium Memorial through Labor day. There is an additional grace period Monday – Friday 9-5 pm allowed With board approval. Thereafter, no construction or repairs absent emergency with board approval only for remaining of the time period. This means that the board is inundated with exception requests for the first month of the summer. For the last 3 years, there has been 3 different homeowners who continued with construction into the summer. Last summer, the board came within inches of having to hire an attorney, file a lawsuit and an injunction after numerous owners threw up their hands with negotiating and we had an entire board meeting discussing every option to stop the construction. The only change here is the $250 a day fine. The board does not have to implement it. It is to deter someone who believes the rules do not apply to them. With notice to stop, if they continue, the board can assess them daily. No attorney will need to be hired to collect because it will become an automatic lien. If we need to file an injunction, an attorney would need to be hired.
If you have another suggestion of how to stop summer construction from owners unwilling to comply with our documents, please email me at email@example.com Unfortunately in all 3 instances, talking did not stop finishing their projects.
