Dear Fellow Falcon Ridge Homeowners:
As we enter the Spring and Summer months, your HOA plans to continue to renew, restore, and reinvigorate Falcon Ridge. We have some exciting new updates in the works as the remodeling of the Falcon House Clubhouse is nearing completion. The Redbud pool house bathrooms have been remodeled, a new roof was installed, and a sunshade was installed over the baby pool. Our 36 traffic islands are in the process of a multi-year renewal with the help of the Beautification Committee, and we have removed over 30 dead trees around various parts of the common areas.
In other updates, to help address situations with compliance, the Board is enacting guidelines and procedures to address homeowners who fail to comply the Declarations of Restrictions. It is the intent of the Board of Directors to establish procedures to assess monetary charges against homeowners for violations and breaches of the Declarations and its restrictive covenants, Bylaws or Rules and Regulations ($50), including violations that involve modifications, additions or alterations made to existing units or structures without obtaining necessary approval as required by the declarations ($250).
If you are unsure of the Rules & Regulations or would just like a copy, they can be found on the here. Additionally, if you have any questions on any of the items below or about any projects, please reach out to the Architectural Review Committee (firstname.lastname@example.org) As always, we welcome your comments and suggestions.
