NO parking in streets. Why is it Important?

Our community has notice a great improvement in regards to the parking on the streets and want to truly thank all the neighbors for understanding the value of these efforts. Keep up the good work and let’s continue to improve our neighborhood to keep it one of the best places to live.

  1. It’s the Rules: Within the CCR’s Article 7.15 it states that no motor vehicles of any kind shall be parked overnight on any street adjoining any lot or common area; provided that, such vehicles belonging to guests of a Lot Owner may occasionally be so parked so long as such parking will not violate any other provision of this Section7.15. ETC.
  2. Street Cleaners: When cars park on the street, it starts to create trash and oil spills causing an unsightly look within our neighborhood. City of Covington has a program where a street sweeper comes through periodically during the night to clean the roads. With cars being parked on the street this has at times eliminated our roads from being cleaned. Let’s make our streets shine.
  3. Safety prospective: With a vibrant and active neighborhood there are concerns for the safety of our neighbors, young and old. The visual sight lines of passing cars around parked cars could be a dangerous situation. We want to be proactive and make sure that our neighborhood and neighbors are safe.


Understanding the ACC and Why

Most community associations have some form of architectural review committee. Often, an owner — whether in a condominium, planned unit development or homeowner’s association — wants to make exterior changes to his or her own unit and feels it is a burden to have to obtain prior approval from an architectural control committee. However, these design reviews have at least two purposes: to establish and preserve a harmonious design for a community and to protect the value of the property. When one buys into a community association, one must understand it is community living. Decisions cannot be unilaterally made, nor can the rules and regulations of the association be unilaterally ignored. One can disagree with the need for uniformity but the fact remains that if the association documents require external uniformity that is the law of the association and is binding on its members. It’s better to fill out the proper ACC form in advance for approval. Having to possible redo a project for not having ACC approval can cost extra money, frustrations and added time.

You may has been noticing some positive changes of manicure hedges and bushes on SE 251 st St. This year’s progress is to make the drive into your community looking great and to add overall value to your main asset, your home! Watch it continue to improve and grow!

As summer is here, we have notice more issues of our pets OPPS. We all love to enjoy long walks with our furry little friends within our community and parks. Please remember to be courteous of your neighbors and the community by picking up your furry little friends OPPS! It’s actually a King county ordinance to do so. This will help maintain the appeal of where we live. It’s also the right thing to do.
