Modification Review Committee - Lily Gomez, CB Statham, and Robyn McAllister
On Feb 1, 2008, CMS management will take over the role of enforcing the Restrictive Covenants that rule our neighborhood. They will do so using the recorded covenants as a guide. Please read your covenants carefully. Remember that they are a legal document that we agreed to abide by at the closing of our properties here in Glenleigh.
We will continue evaluating Requests for Modification and as they are approved will copy them to UBL for follow-up. Please remember that all modifications planned to the exterior of any property, must be reviewed. You can find the Request for Modification form below
The upkeep of our landscaping and yards needs some attention. We struggle with the definition of "unsightly conditions" in the covenants. It's fairly easy to decide that someone's grass needs cutting, but we need to look for and work on those "little things" that give the yard that extra “WOW”. Power washing, window washing and re-painting at this time is great! Remove dead limbs, prune back shrubs, replace pine straw and pine bark in beds, plant annuals in beds and dress up the area around your mailbox. October is also the month to aerate fescue lawns and re-seed them. It is also the perfect time to cut back trees and “lift canopies” by trimming the lower branches to a height of about 20 feet. This practice allows your yard to stay shaded from direct sunlight but allows enough light in as the sun sets to keep the grass looking good. It also allows you to see your house!
Keep your sidewalks as well as curbs free of weeds, grass and debris. It's amazing what a little pruning, planting, refreshing, clearing and edging can do! On this note, the Modification Review Committee (MRC) would like to help you understand what we do, and why.
Working as volunteers on the MRC are Lily Gomez, CB Statham, and Robyn McAllister.
Where to find all this information? Your realtor should have provided a copy of the covenants at closing. Unfortunately, we were all more worried about signing our life away and less concerned about this particular document. If you did not get one, Look-up our webpage: www.glenleigh.com/docs/Glenleigh Covenants.pdf. Along with our covenants, John Wieland handed us a fairly extensive explanation of the most common modifications made and the rules they should abide by. This includes things like fences, decks, attached structures, basketball poles, etc. You can review or download this information from this website. We also suggest you look at the Request for Modification Review form, also available here.
If you do get a call or a notification of a violation... DON'T PANIC! Contact UBL immediately. They will explain why you got the letter and work with you to avoid any problems and fines. Enforcing the covenants thus protecting your property value.
Call us for comments or questions.
Thank you very much!
