WELCOME TO THE RESERVE!
Welcome to our neighborhood and congratulations on the purchase of your home! On behalf of the Board of Directors and the other homeowners of The Reserve at Sawgrass, we would like to welcome you to your new home and our community.
The operation of your homeowners association is governed by a board of volunteer directors. After Developer turnover, the Board of Directors will be elected by the community to oversee the daily functions and financial responsibilities of the Association. You are now a member of a deed restricted community. Under Florida law you are required to abide by the terms and conditions of the covenants established at the initial development of the community and as properly amended from time to time. The Board is also responsible for maintaining members’ compliance with the established covenants and bylaws of the Association. They have specific provisions regarding what can and cannot be done on your property. Please take the time to read through the Bylaws and Covenants documents you received during the home purchase process. If you did not receive these, copies are available to homeowners upon request.
As a new homeowner, you may already have some ideas on how you’d like to personalize your property. Please keep in mind, the Association has an Architectural Review Committee and specific guidelines to help maintain the quality and consistency of our neighborhood. Its function is to evaluate the plans for all exterior landscaping, repairs and remodeling (such as painting, decks, fences, trees and bushes, replacement roofs, etc.) to ensure compliance with all Covenants and Bylaws. The purpose of this review is to protect our scenic environment and maintain the value of our homes. All modifications to the exterior of your property, including landscaping, screens, play equipment, fencing, mulch, and more, must be submitted to the Architectural Review Committee for approval before any work begins. If work is started without prior approval, the homeowner risks being cited for a covenant violation and may be required to alter or remove the changes at significant additional cost.
