   Has anyone heard or dealt with the issue of concrete curbing either in Eastlake or Founder's park? As I understand it in Founder's park it was allowed but now in Eastlake and North Shore concrete curbing in the front yard is not allowed by the DRC. Before February 2010 there was no way of knowing this unless you specifically asked the DRC. It wasn't in any documentation available to residents. I recently found out it was in the information given to builders though.

.

Here is a note from an Eastlake Village resident, PLEASE leave your comment on this article so this Daybreak resident can get some feedback…

   My neighbor and I both put concrete curbing in our front yard last summer. After getting approval for our backyards we both assumed that it would be approved for our front yards and in the interest of timeliness and ease we went ahead and did it without getting prior approval from the DRC. After getting a notice that the change needed to be submitted and after doing so, we finally find out that they don't allow concrete curbing in front yards.

.

I am interested if this has been an ongoing issue that you have heard from anyone else. If am interested in the opinion of the Founder's park residents regarding concrete curbing. Positive or negative.

.

   We are appealing the Covenants committee on the issue on the second Tuesday this month and are trying to decide what approach would be best. Get and exception to the rule or try and push for the rule to be changed. My husband and I are of the opinion that if our neighbors dislike concrete curing, like the DRC then we will take it out.

.

Again, PLEASE leave some feedback in the comments on this article so the Daybreak Eastlake Resident can get some feedback…

Oh terrific, another exception.

Great, glad to hear there has been enough whining that the board will cave in and make yet another exception to the community standards. Why don't we all whine loud together and get rid of all the CC&R's? It will benifit the BOD with extra time where they don't have to consider changes at every meeting. It will save homeowners money as the HOA won't need their over inflated staff. The community will look like junk, but we won't have those pesky rules.

I presented my case to the covenants committee and they recommended that the board rule with the guideline, but they also recommended that the board revisit the guideline. This will probably be on the agenda at the next Open Board meeting on the 28th.

The story of curbing

The story of curbing

By: Timothy Hood (Registered IP 151.118.138.35) on 14-04-2010 04:45

Curbing was part of the original design, but Kennecott disallowed it for Eastlake and later villages because it was a distraction in the landscaping. Like some have said/seen, some homes were "over the top". Personally, I think the curbing can be done well, but it would need to be stained. Plain curbing is too cold and industrial. 
 
Anyone who installs curbing in Eastlake or later villages will be in for an unfortunate surprise. Homeowners will get a notice and will ultimately have to remove it. Some have already been told to remove theirs, so it's extremely unlikely… (to be continued)

I'm under the impression that the honest views and opinions were not truly wanted in this instance, but rather support to go against the HOA. While I understand the paperwork may not have been in the owners possession, it is clearly stated that it was available by simply asking. As for the builders handbook... that is all the requirements, not just landscaping which is a very small portion and has always been easy to get a copy of. We all know that the HOA has extensive and ever changing rules, that's what we bought into. Exemptions just encourage further violations which is already too common

Most people I talk to in Eastlake don't know it is not allowed and are shocked to find out they are asking us to rip it out. I don't think the rule is as well known as some may think. When I talked to the people who work in the association office they said when the issue starting coming up they looked high and low for where it says no concrete curbing (before the current design guidelines were published). They pulled out this huge book that is given to the builders with a ton of guidelines and it says in there. I'm glad they decided to share some of that information with us homeowners.

I feel for the homeowner in this case, but really, this is why we submit for approval. You take a risk when you go ahead without permission, and unfortunately this could be an expensive price to pay! As for claiming ignorance... it's in the residence design guidebook on the daybreak living site (I recall seeing it somewhere in my paperwork from the purchase of my home as well). Personally, I'm not fond of curbing. I've seen a few houses in founders that draw more attention to the concrete than anything, so I'd rather not see it at all but I don't recall it ever being a secret rule.

It's been common knowledge since Eastlake started that curbing was not allowed. Many people find they cannot attend community meetings or be proactive in gathering information leaving them to make gross/costly mistakes. Should we make exceptions for everyone because they aren't responsible to begin with?

I think the concrete curbing gives yards a real nice finished looked. I wish everyone had concrete curbing.

Actually, curbing was not supposed to be allowed in Founders Park, either. We tried to get our builder to put some in, and they told Kennecott would not allow them to do it.

We bought our home in Founders Park when all that was West of the DCC was dirt. We like how our landscaper did our curbing because we told him exactly where we wanted it. I have seen other homes in Founders Park where (in my opinion) the curbing is way over-the-top and not well executed (curbing lines butting against each other; a long string of short curves just for the sake of curves, etc). I don't know why they aren't allowing curbing in the other villages...maybe they thought it was getting tacky looking.
