We live fairly close to each other so there are some things that we do to make life easier for all of us, some of them are: Do not lend your Gate key card to anyone (a $200.00 fine if you loan out your Gate Card). The maximum speed limit is 25 mph except on Oak Crossing Road where it is 15 mph. Register your vehicles with the Security Office and display your Friendly Valley decal on the left side of your windshield. Walk your dog with a 6 ft. non-retractable leash and pick up and dispose of his droppings, don't create excessive noise (example placing a TV against a common wall), wear your badge while using the recreational facilities, get a parking pass from Security for your guests that will be parked in the community over 48 hours, and notify Security 1/2 hr. prior to when someone is expected who is not on your authorized guest/entry list.
Each association has rules for its gardeners. Most Associations do not want you to bother the gardeners while they are working with scheduled duties. It is best to submit a request form to your Board of Directors concerning problems or additions. In associations with fenced yards, the back yard gardening is the owner’s responsibility for maintenance. Current Association meeting minutes and financial statements are available in the Office.
It is advised that owners purchase Condo Insurance to insure personal property within the condo. Association Dues are due on the first day of each month and are late if received after the 15th day of each month (if you submit dues on the 15th, bring them to the Office and obtain a receipt) and a 10% late fee will be charged. Exterior changes to a Condo must be with the written approval of the Board of Directors prior to any construction. Procedures for exterior changes can be obtained in the Office.
