It’s official! CMG is proud to announce that they have been retained as the new management agent for the Lee’s Hill Homeowners Association, (“Lee’s Hill”) a 2,000 home community in Fredericksburg.
Spring is almost here! Remember to consult your By-laws and submit your Architectural Request forms (if necessary) before making changes to your unit and landscape.
Why Architectural Controls?
A community association governance often involves striking a balance between the preferences of an individual homeowner and the best interests of the community as a whole. The typical community association has well-established rules and restrictions—codes that homeowners agree to abide by when they purchase their homes. These codes can involve exterior paint colors, fences, sheds, pets, portable basketball poles, flagpoles, vehicles, satellite dishes, landscaping, even smoking. Issues can arise when homeowners either aren’t aware of the rules or choose to ignore them. In a nation focused on individual freedom, it may be natural to empathize with an individual homeowner who runs afoul of the community association. But rules are created to preserve the character of the community, protect property values and meet the established expectations of all residents.
