    ARCHITECTURAL RULES since 1979 ….. can end in 2018

    The purpose for Architectural Committee Rules was to preserve the architectural and aesthetic integrity in the community and to maintain uniform design and style for improvements made by owners who reside within the boundaries of the community while allowing for a variety of individually designed homes and landscapes.  This was important when our subdivision included many vacant building lots.  In our present state our lots are all owned by individual homeowners.  Two or three of these homeowners own, adjoining to their home lots, another vacant lot, and may in the future require a building permit.

    The Architectural Rules purpose is complete.  The developer left decades ago.  Our mature neighborhood no longer requires the minutia of the 2017 updated Architectural Standards set out in 42 pages.  Our property values are nearing the million dollar range or more, we can trust our neighbors to keep their valuable property maintained.  Summit County Planning has sufficient legal oversight to provide assistance and to approve building permits for proper construction within the entire county, including our subdivision.

    The manner in which the Standards, Compliance, and other Arch Rules have evolved is that the Homeowners are not allowed input, or even preview, of new revisions  or new rules before the board pronounces them incorporated into their “law”.  Further, the board expects the management companies, currently Model HOA, to use these documents for Compliance from the unwitting Homeowners who have little or no idea what are all these rules, where did they originate, and why they are being used to frighten us, and to make our lives miserable.

    It has come time to eliminate all the “Architectural Committee Rules” listed below.  The County takes care of all the important local items, building codes, street maintenance, snow removal, animal control, etc.  To take a step forward, we can join what is happening all over the country, it has come time to dissolve our HOA.  Provision for Dissolution is within our Articles of Incorporation and our other Governing Documents.  All we need is the signatures of a majority of our Homeowners.

    That is what NOW is adding value to properties, the pronouncement in advertising that the “Home For Sale  is NOT WITHIN A HOA!..

    Enforcement Guidelines:

    ENFORCEMENT GUIDELINES:

    “The Association shall have the right to enforce, by any proceeding at law or in equity, including injunctive proceedings, all restrictions, conditions, reservations, liens, and charges now or hereafter imposed by the provisions of this Declaration. Proper notice under this Section shall be defined to require written notice of any acton authorized under this Section to be sent to the affected Member by certified mail at the Member’s Lot address not less than ten (10) calendar days prior to taking any such action. Failure by the Association or by any owner to enforce any covenant or restriction herein contained shall in no event be deemed to waiver of the right to do so thereafter. Costs of such enforcemen, including reasonable attorney’s fees, shall be borne by the party in violation.

    The following schedule of violations and subsequent fines will apply. Please be advised that it is not the desire of the Architecture Rules Committee or the Board of Trustees to impose fines. The intent is that these fines will act as a deterrent to violations of our CC&R’s or AC Rules.

    • Any violation of CC&R’s or AC Rules immediately invokes a $25 fine.
    • Homeowners will be granted 10 days to correct the violation or an additional $25 will be assessed.
    • Failure to comply within 10 days or failure to respond with the appropriate documentation and properly completed application will result in the violation being transferred to legal council for appropriate legal action.
    • Failure to pay any assessed fine within 30 days will result in legal action for collection of fine.”

    Procedure for Violations Resolution :

    -Identify violation and document with photograph, record on ACR form.
    -Contact homeowner via phone, e-mail, or personally to discuss. Give time limit for correction and $25 fine..
    -Follow-up with letter and quotation of CCR section, and (ten (10) day response deadline date for correction.
    -Follow-up with certified letter inviting homeowner to meet with Board.
    -At deadline date without compliance and non-payment of fine, send lien action letter to property owner.
    -No response from homeowner within seven days of lien action letter, file lien on property.

    Deemed Nuisances – Removal of Non-conforming Improvements:

    Every violation of this Declaration or the AC Rules or any part thereof is hereby declared to be and to constitute a nuisance, and every public or private remedy allowed therefore by law or equity against a Member or other Person shall be applicable against every such violation. The SSSFHOA, upon request of the AC, and after reasonable notice to the offender and to the Owner, may remove any improvements constructed, reconstructed, refinished, altered or maintained in violation of this declaration or the AC Rules, and the Owner thereof shall forthwith reimburse the Association for all expenses incurred in connection therewith. [CC&R Article VII, Sec. 1] [CC&R Article X Sec. 7]


    Mailboxes and Summit County Snow Policies -2009 Update:
    If Silver Springs Single Family Home Owners Assn.’s aging mailboxes are seriously damaged by winter season snowplowing, an opportunity exists to have them replaced with county cooperation when Spring eventually arrives. All the affected property-owner need do at this point, or later in the winter, is call the Summit County Public Works Department — 615-3978 — and register for assistance which will be available after roadside snow packs eventually vanish, probably starting in May.  Summit County Public Works Director Kevin Callahan said his department currently operates under a policy stressing courtesy. For instance, he said, although ordinance prohibits parking cars by the curb during winter months in neighborhoods such as the SSSFHOA, snowplow operators are directed to work with residents whose vehicles violate the requirement. “Drivers will work around the situation,” he explained, unless and until the obstacle becomes a serious problem. Persistent parking at the curb during snowstorm conditions would be considered such a problem. In those instances, Mr. Callahan, said, the Summit County Sheriff’s office would be contacted and a deputy would attempt to contact the vehicle owner directly, asking for compliance. If that failed, the sheriff is authorized to have the offending vehicle towed at the owner’s expense. “But we always try to provide a grace period,” Mr. Callahan added.  Necessary snowplowing begins at 4 a.m., neighborhood roads required to be cleared by 6:45 a.m. for public school buses. It can continue through the day depending on snowfall volumes. Weekend plowing is not neglected. And although federal regulations require drivers work no more than 12-hour days, conditions may dictate some flexibility in that, the Public Works Dept. director said.



    Utah’s Solar Access Law allows and enables (but does not require) local governments to adopt rules that prohibit Home Owners Associations (HOA’s) and other entities from restricting a citizen’s ability to install solar. Utah Code, Title 10 Chapter 9a Section 610 gives land use authorities the power to refuse approval or renewal of HOA’s or Private Covenants that attempt to prohibit “reasonably sited” solar collectors. For this code to take effect, a city, town, or county council must first pass it into law.   http://solarsimplified.org/zoning/utah-solar-access-law
