Homeowner Property Maintenance
Remember, homeowners must keep their property and any improvements in good order and repair and free of debris. No items are to be stored in front of the house, lawns/shrubs are to be cut as needed, bikes and toys are to be stored out of view when not in use. The Enforcement Committee will be inspecting properties and notices will be sent for any violations.
There is an issue with rats in the community that will require assistance from residents to eradicate. It is important that everyone ensure there are not food sources outside their homes for rats. Trash should not be placed outside in plastic bags, pet food bowls should not be left outside, and any clutter should be removed from outside your homes. Additionally, residents should never place food out for stray animals as it attracts rats. Go to this website for more information about preventing rats.

Policy Resolution for Parking and Storage of Vehicles
The Board has approved a Policy Resolution for Parking and Storage of Vehicles which will govern all HOA maintained parking spaces in the community. All residents are encouraged to read this policy and report any violations to IKO Community Management. For safety reasons, please do not park on the sidewalks as this blocks the sidewalks and forces residents to walk on the street. In addition, please obey all “No Parking” and “Fire Lane” signs. We have active towing throughout the community and vehicles will be towed. Play it safe and park properly!
Speeding in the Community
County law specifies a speed limit of 20 mph on private roads without posted speed limit signs. Help keep our community safe and please obey all stop signs and the community’s 20 mph speed limit.
