REFERENCE: Tennyson Place Community Association Updates & Notices

Dear Tennyson Place Homeowners,

The annual Tennyson Place Homeowners Meeting was held November 30, 2011. The Board of Directors would like to update everyone on the main items that resulted from that meeting for your awareness and attention.

First, updated Community Rules and Regulations have been approved. The changes involve: 1) Notice of Violations; and 2) ARC Application Requirements. They can be found on the reverse of this letter. To access the updated Rules and Regulations in its entirety, see the Tennyson Place HOA website:http://tennysonplaceh.wpengine.com/important-documents/.

Second, feedback from homeowners who were concerned about yard maintenance was received. As spring has begun, we want to remind you to review our governing documents regarding mowing, edging, mulching, and tree/shrub care.

In particular, please help to keep the community looking good by edging sidewalks, curbs, and fences on a regular basis.

For more information about yard maintenance, please review section 2.10 in our R&R or ARTICLE XIII – OWNER MAINTENANCE RESPONSIBILITIES of our Covenants; and, if interested, please see the fescue lawn tips posted on our website as well.

Thank you for helping to preserve your neighborhood’s appeal and property values. Please let us know if you have any questions and/or concerns that we can help you with.

On Behalf of the Tennyson Place Board of Directors,
Justin Anderson, Community Manager
Community Focus of NC, Inc

Section 4.4 – Notice of Violation (N.O.V.)

Change Made: Removes the verbiage “within one year of a previous complaint”

If subsequent violation complaints are received in regard to the same rule or if the steps outlined in the written warning to rectify the situation have not been taken, a Notice of Violation will be sent by U.S. postal service certified mail, or by email (which also is a valid source of contact in a court of law) to the Owner of record within ten business days of the alleged violation or lack of compliance. The notice will include the specifics of the alleged violation along with the amount of fine to be imposed by default unless a hearing is requested within ten business days after receipt of the Notice of Violation.

Section – Exhibit C – Owners / Agent Application for Architectural Review

Change Made: Rewording of the process to obtain neighbors signatures for projects

Your neighbors have the right to know of your future plans. It is required to obtain signatures from all property owners having common lot lines with your property along with property owners who reasonably view the improvement from their property. Obtaining neighbors’ signatures does not grant approval. Objections from a neighbor do not cause denial. However, the ARC can contact neighbors to determine their objections and their appropriateness, if necessary. Electronic signatures (via email) are sufficient to meet this requirement.
