As a convenience to homeowners, the Board of Directors have compiled on this web page a list of several of the key regulations that you should be aware of. Please note that this is not a comprehensive list, and the language is not always quoted verbatim. The governing documents are authoritative, not this web page. Any questions can be directed to the Board of Directors using our Contact Us Page.
- All exterior alterations to Units (homes) must be submitted to the HOA Board of Directors and approved in writing before proceeding with the work. No exceptions. Submit detailed plans and specifications showing the nature, kind, shape, height, materials, colors and location, and the Board will review and respond as promptly as possible. Be sure to also reach out to Hallam Borough for permits/approvals, if applicable. Here is a helpful document provided by the Borough in the Summer of 2022.
- Roofs must be approved in writing by the HOA Board of Directors.
- Fencing of any area is prohibited without HOA Board approval.
