Call 811 before digging in or near utility easements.

Fences (Article IV Section 6)
No view blocking fences between the home and street. As a general rule view blocking fences & walls along the road frontage or lakes and between the home and street have been determined to not be compatible with the overall character and aesthetics of the Subdivision.  If considering a view blocking design consult with the ACC or consider a more natural solution like shrubbery or trees.

The ACC generally limits Road Frontage Fence height to between 4 - 5 ft tall.

All fences must be made of new material and approved by the ACC.  All road frontage fences must be constructed of wood, vinyl, wrought iron, or masonry.  Please refer to Article IV Section 6.

Fences need to be kept out of Drainage Easements. (roughly 30' from road) ( reference Montgomery County Subdivision Guidelines Sec 2 / III / A ) "This easement shall be kept clear of fences, buildings, plants and other obstructions to the operation and maintenance of the drainage facility......"
