If you were not able to participate in the previous on-site keycard distributions, you may now request a keycard. The 5-page waiver must be completed by the registered owner and any tenants if applicable. Please email the form to BAURANCH@CiraMail.com. The waivers will be reviewed, and once a key is loaded into the system, mailed to the address listed. It takes 7-10 days on average for staff to send the key.

Update For Residents

On behalf of the Board of Directors, we wanted to take a moment to update everyone who was unable to join us online for the last board meeting. There are a few topics we would like to recap - the existing restrictive covenants (rules) of the Association, the sign policy, enforcement and fine policy. Reminder the pool is closed for the season. Please send any questions to BAURANCH@CiraMail.com

Restrictive Covenants (Rules) of the Association

As you know, one of the benefits of living in a homeowners association is the enforcement of the community's restrictive covenants (DCC&Rs) or rules (attached). The enforcement of the rules helps keep the home values high, protecting the investment you made in your home. It is the obligation of the Board to enforce the covenants. During the initial phase of the pandemic, inspections were put on hold; there were more significant concerns than lawns. Now that our community is easing back into a new sense of normal, inspections and the enforcement of the restriction have resumed. The most common violations are in the chart below. Please be sure to confirm you are following the rules. For a full list of the restrictions, please log on to the Resident Portal and review the documents tab.

Political Signs

Of course, with every rule, there is an exception. In this case, political signs are protected by the Texas State Statutes (Election Code 259.002). The technical terms are written below. Again, to provide a more concise explanation, Owners can display one sign per candidate or item that appears on the ballot. The sign must be ground-mounted and cannot be larger than four (4) feet by six (6) feet.

Owners may place ground-mounted signs on their Lot, which advertise a political candidate or ballot item for an election ("Political Signs"), provided the following criteria are met:

1. No Political Sign may be placed on an Owner's Lot prior to the ninetieth (90th) day before the date of the election to which the sign relates, or remain on an Owner's Lot after the tenth (10th) day after the election date.

2. No more than one (1) Political Sign is allowed per political candidate or ballot item.

3. Political Signs may be displayed only on an Owner's Lot, and may not be located on, nor encroach on, another Lot, Common Area and Facilities, or any property owned or maintained by the Association.

4. No Political Sign may:

(i) contain roofing material, siding, paving, materials, flora, one or more balloons or lights, or any other similar building, landscaping, or nonstandard decorative component;

(j) be attached in any way to plant material, a traffic control device, a light, a trailer, a vehicle, or any other existing structure or object;

(k) include the painting of architectural surfaces;

(l) threaten the public health or safety;

(m) be larger than four feet by six feet (4'x6');

(n) violate a law;

(o) contain language, graphics, or any display that would be offensive to the ordinary person; or

(p) be accompanied by music, other sounds, by streamers or is otherwise distracting to motorists.

The Association may remove a Political Sign displayed in violation of this Policy.

Sign Policy

The One-Sign Policy incorporates the Political Sign Policy as drafted and edited by the Association's legal counsel in conjunction with the Architectural Committee (ACC) and Board. The policy allows for one (1) sign, no larger than five square feet (5 sqft) in a homeowner's front yard without the need for ACC approval. The sign must be maintained in good condition and may not be considered offensive.

Examples of items deemed offensive included but were not limited to profanity or explicit language, calls for violent behavior, inflammatory language, or nudity or objectionable images. The one-sign does not prohibit a single small security company sign up to 18 square inches.

Also allowable under the policy are celebratory signs with a limited display of up to 45-days. Political signs are protected under the Elections Code 259.002 and remain unaffected by the policy. Additional signs require ACC approval before being placed in the yard.

Coronavirus & Basketball Court

The basketball court is also limited in the number of people able to gather in groups. To ensure compliance and safety, for the remainder of 2020, use is limited to a single household at any one time; no neighbors, no visitors. All restrooms and water fountains are closed. Please bring your own water bottle and sanitizing wipes to the court.

Please reach out to City Leaders if you have questions or concerns over the implementation and impact of these additional regulations.

We wish health and happiness to each of you during these unprecedented times.

Enforcement and Fine Policy

In an effort to recoup some of the expenses the Association spends on enforcing deed restrictions, the Board voted to adopt an enforcement policy that includes fines.

By implementing fines, the Board will be turning that expense back to the violator instead of the rule-abiding residents. The chart below describes the procedure.

As a reminder, violations remain on your account for six (6) months from the prior notice. Any subsequent violation will escalate to the next level. For example, your trash can is left in front of the garage, instead of stored out of sight when the inspection occurs. You receive a courtesy notice. Life happens, and three (3) months later it the bin is left out again. Even though it isn't habitual, you now receive your second notice. The next month, your child bails on their chores and leaves the can out front. Now you receive two (2) letters, one in the mail, and one you have to sign for (it is sent certified). Four (4) months later, you go out of town but forget to ask the neighbor to wheel in the trash bin while you are away. Even though it is more than six (6) months since the initial violation, it has only been four (4) months since the last notice; therefore, you receive a $50 violation. If you have another infraction within six (6) months, you will receive a $100 violation followed by a $200 violation. If, however, you find a system that allows you to keep your trash bin stored out of sight for more than six (6) months, your violations will go back to zero.

Each violation type is independent. If in the example above, you get a lawn maintenance violation when you were out of town, it will receive a courtesy notice. After six (6) months without a repeat, it will fall off of your account.
