Approved 3/16/2006


Landscaping by the developer/builder, or that approved by the ARC, has no guarantee that the subsequent growth of trees and shrubs will not affect views.  The ARC does not warrant, expressed or implied, written or orally, any view.


However, if such a situation exists, the ARC encourages homeowners to communicate with one another in person to seek resolution.  The ARC also encourages homeowners to exercise a good neighbor policy by keeping their trees laced and shrubs pruned to allow their neighbors to see through the trees and over the shrubs. Please, no topping!


Before contacting the ARC/Compliance Coordinator (ARCCC) for mediation, affected homeowners must negotiate in good faith.  In the unlikely event an impasse exists between homeowners, the ARCCC will attempt to resolve differences.  If there is no resolution, the ARCCC may suggest arbitration (see Arbitration Policy).


Except for the replacement of existing trees or shrubs which may have died or been damaged, any new plantings must have ARC approval as per article 8.1.3 of the CC&R's.


The Links Landscaping Committee is responsible for existing plants and trees, as well as future plantings on the common grounds.  Trees on the common grounds will be laced when necessary and practical, and shrubs pruned by a professional landscaper, to allow homeowners to see through the trees and over the shrubs. Homeowner input on all matters relating to the common grounds is encouraged.
