Association By-laws rules and violations

posted May 6, 2019, 12:27 PM by Gary Lorenz

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 next few weeks 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.
