Thanksgiving week traditionally marks the beginning of the December holiday season - Black Friday, Cyber Monday, and of course, decorating your home for the holidays.
For those residents wondering what is permitted with respect to holiday decorating, Design Rule 4.19 states:
- “Exterior holiday decorations are permitted. However, the design and quality of the decorations shall be in good taste, and the DRC, in its sole discretion, maintains the right to determine if such holiday decorations are in good taste. Exterior decorations may be displayed on an Owner’s lot up to ten (10) days prior to the holiday and must be removed within five (5) days after the holiday, with the exception of the December holidays, when exterior decorations may be displayed beginning Thanksgiving Day until January 10 of the December holiday season.
- Holiday decorations must not cause light glare to neighbors or other safety hazards related to vehicular or pedestrian traffic.” (Emphasis added)
- With regard to decorative string/icicle lighting, DRC Rule 4.16.3 states:
- “String and icicle type lighting is not permitted. The exception will be the December holidays where this type of lighting is used for decorating.” (Emphasis added)
On behalf of the Board of Directors, Associa/DRM and your Information Advisory Committee, we wish you all a very Happy Holiday Season. May the air be filled with Peace, Love and Tolerance for all!!! Happy decorating!
