B. Owner Responsibility
PC’s, Article I, Section 104
1. Maintenance of Homes / Individual Lots: “In order to keep Peregrine an attractive, quality environment, each Owner shall maintain the exterior or any Improvements, including buildings, other structures, landscaping, walks, driveways and parking areas on his Lot in good condition and shall cause them to be repaired as the effects of damage or deterioration become apparent. Exterior building surfaces and trim shall be repainted periodically and before the surfacing becomes weather beaten or worn off. Any dead or diseased landscaping will promptly be replaced, all lawns will be properly mowed and maintained, and weeds and other noxious plants will be controlled.”
Reference IV Landscaping Standards – Lawn Care / Landscape Maintenance
Sidewalks: “In 2005, the City implemented a PPRTA program that is designed to assist homeowners with the repair of their sidewalks, curbs and gutters. It does not relieve the homeowner of any legal liability or responsibility regarding their sidewalk or real property and does not prevent a homeowner from making repairs to the sidewalk. If there is a hazard on a homeowner’s sidewalk that needs attention, it is the homeowner’s responsibility to address those concerns as soon as possible to mitigate the homeowner’s liability exposure.”
The Board of Directors, ARC or Management Company shall have the final say as to the condition of a home and if maintenance is required. The ARC will review requests for modifications to a home for persons with disabilities in accordance with the Federal “FAIR HOUSING ACT OF 1968”, 42 U.S.C. SEC. 3604 (f) (3) (A).
