Park Estates at Ivory Ridge Home Owners Association
Budget Mailer PARK ESTATES
Park Estates Street Tree Planting
Please be aware of some common violations within the association
All landscaping in the Project shall be maintained and cared for in a manner consistent with the standards of design and quality originally established by the Declarant and in accordance with any City landscaping maintenance plans or ordinances. All landscaping shall be maintained in a safe, sanitary, and aesthetic condition. Any weeds or diseased or dead lawn, trees, ground cover, shrubbery or flowers shall be removed and replaced. All lawn areas shall be mowed and edged; all trees, shrubs, and bushes shall be pruned, trimmed and topped. No landscaping may affect adversely the value or use of any other Lot, or to detract from the uniform design and appearance of the Project. Landscaping shall include by way of illustration but not limitation the planting of a lawn and/or other appropriate ground cover, planting beds and flower beds, appropriate bushes and shrubs, and the planting of trees in accordance with the Street Tree Planting Plan. Lot landscaping, grading and drainage including installation of an automatic sprinkler/irrigation system must be completed with nine (9) months of the date of closing on the purchase of a home.
Storage and Parking of Vehicles
There shall be no outside storage of parking upon any Lot or the Common Areas of any automobile, Recreational, Commercial or Oversized vehicle, truck, tractor, mobile home or trailer (either with or without wheels), camper, camper trailer, bot or other watercraft, boat trailer, or any other transportation divide of any kind, except for Owners within the parking spaces in the Owner’s garage and for visitors temporarily parking in spaces. No street parking is allowed, ever or under any circumstances. No inoperable vehicle can be stored on any lot, parcel or street with the exception of emergency repair in which the unit owner has 72 hours to repair or remove.
The Association may also immobilize, tow and/or impound vehicles and trailers parked, stationed or stored in violation at the owner’s sole risk and expense.
Architectural Control Violations
Anything that affects the appearance or quality of a property must be approved in writing by the Design Review Board. “Anything” is very broad: including, but not limited to, flag poles, basketball standards, air conditioners, wind chimes, decorations, wreaths, dream catchers, pinwheels, lighting, solar collector panels, color schemes, signs, landscaping, drainage, even health, safety and welfare. Approved landscaping must be completed per CC&Rs time schedule.
No temporary structures are allowed. Everything must be kept in good repair and maintained. A violation will require restoring the change to an approvable standard. Failure to do so will result in a warning letter followed by an appropriate grace period to correct the discrepancy.
Trash Containers and Collection
Garbage cans really do not look nice! They detract from the appearance of the entire neighborhood. Owners have two choices: Keep them in the garage or enclosed in an approved enclosure. They cannot be visible from another property, except on collection day. Placing garbage cans at the curb after darkness the night before collection day is acceptable. They must be enclosed or garaged after collection prior to midnight on the same day.
Pet owners at Park Estates must be responsible for their pets. Pet noises, odors or droppings are offensive. Joggers, cyclists, small children and wildlife can be injured by a chance encounter with an unrestrained pet. In traffic, loose pets are a safety hazard to themselves and to drivers who swerve to avoid hitting them. Pets must be confined within the owner’s property boundary when off leash. Specific additional rules apply. See CC&R 8 (p). Violations will be fined as follows for a discrete episodic event such as permitting the animal to run at large, chronic noise and other violations listed under CC&R 8(p):
Nuisances are conditions that diminish an owner’s quiet enjoyment of his residence, detract from tranquility or diminish a neighborhood’s aesthetic appeal.
Noise: A “quiet neighborhood” is a term often used interchangeably with “a good neighborhood.” A neighborhood’s right to quiet overrides any individual’s right to create noise at any time. Other potential noise problems: amplified sound, pets that bark while the owners are at work. The idea of “wind chimes” may sound inoffensive, but many people prefer quiet or the sound of the wind without “improvements.” Again, the right to quiet is preeminent.
Rubbish and Trash: Rubbish or trash of any kind is not permitted on or adjacent to any lot. “Dumping” garden trimmings, grass clippings, construction or other debris on an adjacent parcel or allowing them to accumulate on an owner’s own lot is prohibited. Discarded Christmas trees must not be stored outside if visible from streets or from neighboring property.
Personal property placed on a patio, deck or balcony shall be managed and controlled by rule adopted by management. However, one table, one set of chairs and one BBQ grill if covered, and is not visible to the other residents is allowed. Clotheslines, the hanging of clothes, swimsuits and towels, dreamcatchers, wind chimes, pinwheels, the storing of bicycles, tricycles, equipment, machinery, furniture, appliances, furnishings or other items which may be considered inappropriate or unsightly by management in its sole discretion, shall not be allowed.
Antennas and Satellite Dishes
Rules governing antennas and satellite dishes are complex and not easily summarized. Placement of antennas shall be subject to DRB review.
Clothes Drying Facilities
No clotheslines or drying facilities may be visible from a neighboring property.
Machinery and Equipment
No machinery or equipment can be placed, operated or maintained on or adjacent to any Lot or parcel.
No signs, billboards or advertising structures or devices of any kind may be built, installed or displayed on the Property or in any Lot, except one 2’ x 2’ “For Sale” sign may be put in one window of a Lot. No “For Rent” signs or political signs are allowed.
An owner is fully responsible for informing his lessee of the rules and is responsible for any penalties due to actions of the lessee. The Board may evict the lessee and assess the owner all costs associated with that action, if necessary. No Owner shall rent a unit less than 6 months and a home must be Owner-occupied for a period of at least one (1) year after the date of closing.
Covenants, Conditions, Easements and Restrictions Applicable to Lots within Single Family Residential Use Classification
No visible business of any type may be conducted from a Park Estates Residence. This includes a garage sale, moving sale, rummage sale, or any similar activity. A business not detectible by sight, (vehicle and foot traffic), sound or smell is permitted.
