Neighborhood News


As we all focus on maintaining our neighborhood and commit to the guidelines established, we have a few call out reminders that have been recently brought to our attention with regularity – review deed restrictions link for exact terms. 

Trash Cans & Other Equipment – Must be stored in the dwelling or concealed by visual barrier (see deed restrictions on approved barriers) so they are not visible from adjacent streets or lots – all year round.

Fences – No fences shall be erected other than a “split rail” fence. Our architecture review board ( can support any questions regarding what is approved or not approved as a fence. 

Exterior Improvements - All external improvements are required to be submitted, reviewed and approved by the Architecture Review Board prior to project start - 

Commercial Vehicles / Boats / Campers / RV / Trailers – No (listed items) shall be parked or stored on property unless they are inside the dwelling / garage. 

Our volunteer HOA and supporting committees are committed to supporting our community. We are happy to answer any questions or clarifications regarding our governing guidelines. Please reach out to us with any and all questions.

In the event that our governing guidelines are being misinterpreted or ignored, the HOA will reach out to the homeowner with a request for corrective action and expectations. We trust that many of the infractions are simply a misunderstanding of the deed restrictions and by laws. Our request is that you are familiar with The Shores homeowner commitment, so we can maintain our neighborhood aligned with the expectations and governing standards. 

Simple Precautions Can Help Keep Our Neighborhood Safe

• Don't use a cell phone while driving through neighborhoods. A single distraction could lead to a tragedy. Pay extra attention to the side of the road while driving. 

• Do not pass vehicles that have stopped in the roadway. They could be dropping off children. 

• If walking the neighborhood at night, make sure drivers can see you. Carry flashlights or glow sticks or use reflective tape on your clothing. 

• Be sure your children know how to cross a street. Instruct children to look both ways before crossing the street and to cross only at corners or crosswalks.
