Rules are established to provide direction to the homeowners for common courtesies with regard to parking, vehicles, pets etc. In addition, LRM has adopted Architectural Guidelines with procedures for submitting requests to make exterior changes to your home. Such changes may include patio covers, decks, landscaping, exterior paint color or any other items that change the architecture of the home. These rules and guidelines are set up to maintain the aesthetic value and integrity of the community on behalf of all owners, and hopefully protect the market value of your investment as well. These rules are also to help homeowners be compliant with all laws, codes and ordinances. Violations of these rules may result in action by the Board of Directors and possible legal action to correct. In addition, if you proceed with an exterior improvement or change, without written approval of the Architectural Review Board, you will be required to remove or correct the alteration and/or be subject to legal fees for the violation.
