Why do we have annual dues and how is the money spent?
RESPONSE: These fees keep our neighborhood looking
good and our home values high through landscaping and lawn care of
common areas, maintenance and repair of entrance signs and perimeter
fences, electrical utility fees for entrance lighting, printing
and mailing costs for newsletters and other mailings, accounting,
audit & legal services, web hosting, and others. Treasurers
report is provided at meetings. Dues are mandatory for homes
purchased after April 1, 2000. LRNA counts on all non-mandatory
members to voluntarily support the association. See our dues
info page for more.
QUESTION #2: What do I do about a covenant violation
RESPONSE: You may notify any officer or board
member of the date, location and offense or mail a detailed description
to the LRNA mailing address.
#3: What will be done when a covenant violation
RESPONSE: The offending member will normally:
(1) be contacted by mail informing them of the situation, any governing
covenant requirements, their obligation to abide by the covenants
and be a good neighbor, and they will be given a reasonable time
frame in which to correct the problem. (2) If the party does
not correct the problem within the time frame specified or the party
has not made a "good faith" effort to correct or rectify
the problem and notifies LRNA of the action to be taken, a second
notice will be sent. (3) If the second notice does not achieve
results, and the homeowner has made no effort to comply the matter
will be turned over to an attorney for legal action.
QUESTION #4: What can I do about a neighbor's
loud continuously barking dog or other annoying noise situation disturbing us?
This is in violation of our good neighbor policy and our annoyance
or nuisance covenant, and may also be a violation of the city noise
or disturbing the peace ordinances.
(Covenant # 9:
No noxious or offensive trade or activity shall be carried on upon
any of the above-described lots, nor shall anything be done thereon
which may be or become an annoyance or nuisance to the neighborhood.)
the severity of the situation and the time when it occurs, you may
want to tactfully notify the neighbor that their dog or other
noise problem is causing
a problem and ask them to try and control it, put it in the garage
or something similar. If this is not successful, you should
contact the police. For LRNA action, you can notify any officer
or board member of the date, location and nature of the offense
or send detailed information to our mailing address. Action
will be taken as outlined in Question #2. above.
