Insurance Coverage: The Association is a town home community. The Association maintains insurance on common areas ONLY. In addition to the property coverage on any common area buildings, the Association also maintains general liability and Directors & Officers (D&O) coverage. Homeowners own their home and should maintain fire & extended insurance coverage on their unit and personal property by obtaining a HO-3 policy. Homeowners should contact their insurance agent to be sure that they have proper coverage.

Parking: The Board of Directors would like to remind everyone to please limit parking on the street to a minimum especially for those owners who live close to the entrance. Vehicles parked on the street may create blind spots and potential safety issues for those drivers entering and leaving the development. If you have to use on street parking, please park on the left side of the street (Bass Chapel side) as you enter the development. When vehicles are parked on both sides of the street, it creates problems for owners entering and leaving the community. By parking on the left side only, this will allow access for emergency vehicles to the entire community.
Parking is not permitted in front of any townhome with an even number for their address. If you live in units 2-12, please park on the opposite side of the street (in front of units 1-11) or use the parking pad to the left of unit 12. Thanks for your cooperation.
