June 2018 Board Meeting

posted by Gary Lorenz

The Serenity Ride board of directors meet every three months to review our financial reports and discuss current projects. We have had a lot of activity during the past three months as we hired a landscape company, completed road repairs and sent formal communication regarding our associations rules. Our next meeting is tonight and we would welcome any feedback you have regarding your experience living in Serenity Ridge. Please send your comments to the board members copied within this message and we will recognize and discuss your comments during our meeting.

Thank you and have a safe and great summer.

You will notice a significant increase in the amount of small trees and weeds growing within the dune grass on both sides of the road near the entrance of Timberwinds Dr.
We have contacted our landscape provider to remove the material.

Thanks

Self-Assessment of Compliance Reminder

posted May 31, 2018, 7:14 AM by Serenity Ridge

To all Serenity Ridge Association Homeowners,

Owning a home in our Serenity Ridge neighborhood comes with certain guidelines by which all homeowners are required to uphold.  As a consistent practice, the Board requests of you to do a self-assessment to ensure the Serenity Ridge Association By-Laws (listed below) are being upheld by each property owner. If you discover that you are not in compliance with our By-laws then please remedy the issue. Members of the board will also review your association properties during the first week in June and if any violations are observed you will be sent a notice of violation along with the process you must follow to eliminate the violation.  Failure to eliminate the violation may result in a fine of $150 per week or $250 per week for repeat violations.

We, as a Board and neighbor, in no way want to have to enforce any such violations.  Although, it is our obligation to ensure the integrity of our By-Laws are intact no matter how large or small the infraction.  We all live in this beautiful neighborhood knowing what is expected and upholding our By-Laws ensures our neighborhood remains beautiful.

Sec. I     SHORT LIST OF COMMON RULES TO FOLLOW

  • You cannot rent your home or any portion of it.
  • You are only allowed one 4 square foot professional sign on your property (e.g., a for sale sign).
  • Weapons & Fireworks – See Walker city ordinance. None shall be used on common grounds.
  • Pets – you are only allowed 1 dog, cat or two caged birds. More than that requires a written variance from the board.
  • No recreation vehicles, trailers, boats, etc. shall be parked on your property unless it fits fully into your garage so that it can close.
  • No commercial vehicles or trucks. No storing non-working vehicles on your property.
  • Construction or landscaping – must have written approval from the Architectural Review Committee with design.
