The Estates at Dove Run is a traditional community, with 299 upscale homes, located off of Rt. 299 in Middletown, DE. Our neighborhood is walking distance to Dove Run Shopping Center, Brick Mill Elementary, Middletown High School and just minutes from Rt. 1.

Basketball Goals

Lot owners are reminded that (unattended) basketball goals are prohibited, according to Section 18 of the Declaration of (Deed) Restrictions: “No basketball goals shall be erected, placed or maintained on any lot at any time, except for a maximum of one permanently installed goal located in the driveway. Any and all basketball playing shall be permitted from 9:00 a.m. to sundown.”

The HOA has noticed that several lot owners have installed permanent basketball (fixed) goals near public areas, such as sidewalks and curbs. This is also a violation of Middletown Ordinance § 103-1 (Placement on roadways and sidewalks restricted): “It shall be unlawful for any person to place, store, or keep upon any street or public sidewalk any portable, stationary, or fixed object, including, but not limited to basketball poles…”

A copy of this Ordinance is included as an attachment.

We appreciate your cooperation in this matter. In addition, lot owners are encouraged to report any infractions to either the HOA or to Middletown Code Enforcement.
