South Point Subdivision Home Owners Association Update March 2010
Dear Fellow Southpoint Homeowners/Tenants,
Spotlight Covenant of the Month – Garage Sale and Yard Signs
Greetings! We are already to March. The spring season will be upon us very soon.
An issue that the ACC has seen with more frequency is the appearance of yard signs that are against the Restrictive Covenant. With the weather getting warmer, garage sales will definitely be on the minds of homeowners to begin spring cleaning. The ACC would like to remind you that in accordance with Paragraph 23 of the Amended and Reinstated Restrictive Covenants that no signs of any kind shall be displayed to the public view on any Lot, except customary signs advertising the Lot for sale or rent. Signs advertising celebrations such as birthdays, anniversaries, births, deaths, religious holidays, or national holidays, which are utilized for a limited period of time, are permitted as long as the signs are removed timely after the event by the Owner of the Lot.
In addition to your lot, if you place any signs throughout the subdivision to promote your garage sale and/or lost pets, please be responsible and remove the signage in a timely manner. It is a detraction from the subdivision. Also, please be aware that it is a safety hazard to post signage onto the actual sign (i.e. stop sign). Signs placed on the traffic signs will be subject to immediate removal.
Compliance Required: Within 3 days
Fine Duration: 5 days
Max Fine: $250.00
What is the Architectural Control Committee?
The Architectural Control Committee (“ACC”) of Southpoint Subdivision is established to maintain the quality and desirability of Southpoint by overseeing the compliance of the Restrictive Covenants of SPHA.
The ACC is charged with carrying out the general plan of the subdivision and to ensure that we maintain a high standard of appearance within the neighborhood. The ACC is separate and autonomous (i.e., the right or power of self-government; undertaken or carried on without outside control; existing or capable of existing independently; responding, reacting, or developing independently of the whole) to the Board of Directors although it works closely with the Board.
