|WELCOME TO FLEETWOOD!|
As noted on the Covenants & By Laws page, any proposed change or addition to the exterior of your home must be approved by the Board of Directors. This includes, but is not limited to, things such as external color changes, fences, gazebos, decks, patios, awnings, extensive landscaping, playground equipment, basketball goals, satellite dishes (over and above the standard equipment of DISH network), and ornamental lawn decorations (e.g., large fountains).
When making exterior changes, please take your immediate neighbors into consideration. For instance, if you wish to build up part of your yard, will such a change affect the drainage into and around the surrounding properties? And while you don't have to have your neighbors' permission to put up a fence, it would be appropriate and considerate to at least advise them of your plans beforehand.
FILING THE ARCHITECTURAL CHANGE APPLICATION
(Click HERE to open the form in pdf format. Click HERE to open the form as an MS Word document.)
The application should be filled out completely, including the location of the proposed work shown on a plat of your property (a comparable drawing will suffice if you do not have the formal plat available). All applicable dimensions must be shown.
All appropriate information should be sent to our HOA management firm:
Association Management Services
P. O. Box 1126
Brentwood, TN 37024-1126
Your Application will then be forwarded to the Board for review. A minimum of 15 business days is required for review of the plans. It is the homeowner's responsibility to ensure that their Application is submitted within a time frame that meets their work schedule. Failure to make any changes without prior approval could result in the change being removed at the homeowner's expense.
Any questions regarding changes (what may or may not require an application) or the application process, should be directed to Associated Management Services.
Having this application process required by our Covenants is not intended to be restrictive or punitive. Rather it is to protect the integrity of Fleetwood - to keep the overall character and feel of our neighborhood intact. Virtually all change applications are approved without any issue. Occasionally, a minor alteration to the original plan may be suggested, but this is the exception.
The Board of Directors is made up of your neighbors. Like you, their only wish is that Fleetwood continue to be a place they are pleased and proud to call home.
