Who do I contact if a street light is not working properly?Street light outages should be reported to Duke Energy Progress since they maintain the lights.

What are the guidelines that I need to follow in regards to “rebuilding/repairing” my existing deck? You should rebuild and/or repair your deck back to the original style, shape, and size. However, several building codes have changed since the original construction so it is understood that some changes will be required by these updated codes. It is understood that the home owner will obtain all necessary building permits prior to starting a re-build. Please go to the architectural change request form if you are planning a change to your deck which is by choice rather than a code requirement.

How do I know if I need HOA approval before attempting to rebuild/repair an exterior feature? Please ask the manager before proposing your changes or building/site plans. You will receive an email back that will tell you if HOA approval is needed. Also, it will guide you on the necessary steps to follow in order to complete the changes. Otherwise, you should assume approval is required and complete the architectural change request form
