The Association has a copy of the Declaration of Covenants, the latest newsletter (which is sent quarterly), a copy of the By-Laws, a Design Review request sheet, and a list of some of the major changes that have occurred within the Association since the year 1997. No landscaping or architectural changes, can be made without prior approval.
There are four types of homes in the Orchards – townhouses, townhouses/duplex, zero lot line homes and single family homes. Depending on which of these you have purchased, the regulations will be different. We suggest you read the covenant, and bylaws so you’ll know which regulations apply.
An Orchards Directory is distributed once a year. This is a list of people in the Orchards who have signed an authorization form permitting their name(s) to be put on the list and is distributed only to people signing forms.
Board meetings are held the third Wednesday of each month at the clubhouse office. Homeowners are welcome to come from 7:00 p.m. to 7:15 p.m. to pass on any comments, concerns or to ask questions. The board meeting is then held for board members only.
Directors for the Board are elected by homeowners at the annual meeting which is held on the fourth Saturday in September. Each director’s term is two years but a director may choose to run again to serve another two-year term. At the annual meeting, a report about the year’s activities and events is given to all homeowners attending. Time will be announced in one of the newsletters preceding the annual meeting date.
Once again, we welcome you to the Orchards. We hope your stay will be pleasant and satisfying. Please call the office if you have any questions or contact any of the board members.
