It has been brought to the HOA Board’s attention that there is some confusion regarding the construction of fencing around properties. The following is the section from the Covenants concerning fencing:
- Fencing. All fences on road frontages must be of wood or stone construction approved by the Committee. Fencing on all other boundaries must of of new construction. Wire may be woven or barb less. If barbless, a minimum of 4 strands must be used. Posts must be spaces a minimum of one rod. No electrical fences along Lot boundaries will be permitted. Fences may not obstruct bridle paths or other easements.
The confusion is surrounding the number of rails required on fences. The Covenants only state that for barbless wire fences a minimum of 4 strands must be used. The Covenants do NOT state a minimum number of rails for fences constructed of other materials. To use materials not listed in the Covenants, e.g. vinyl, PVC, or other materials, a variance must be requested and approved by the Board and Lot Owners in the same filing as the requestor.
