Board of Director Nominations

The Estates at Dove Run Homeowners’ Association, Inc. (HOA) is soliciting nominations for those interested in serving on the Board of Directors for calendar year 2020. The elected Board members will serve for a one-year term. Nominations must be received by November 15, 2019.

3. Property Maintained in Accordance with Deed Restrictions

In addition, only one person per household may serve on the Board.

If you are interested in serving on the Board, please complete the attached form (below).

Fines for Unresolved Deed Restriction Violations

Recently, we received several complaints about deed restriction violations (unauthorized vehicles/structures, trampolines, vegetable gardens, etc.). Over the years, the Board has sent letters to (known) deed restriction violators; however, this has not been an effective process as some have simply disregarded the Violation Letters and failed to correct the issues. Therefore, effective immediately, we will impose a fine ($75) against those who fail to respond to our request(s) to remedy restriction violations within a reasonable time frame.

Given the fact we have approximately 300 units within our development, however, the Board may not be aware of every deed restriction violation. Therefore, we rely on the participation of our lot owners. So, if you see deed restriction issues/violations, please relay your concerns to our attention. Your inquiry will be handled in the strictest confidence. And we will aggressively pursue the resolution of your complaint.

As always, please feel free to contact us with any concerns or questions.
