Covenants Corner

During these past pandemic months, I have cited on the side of leniency; that leniency is starting to show in the neighborhood. During the first weeks of the new year, my inspections will go back to requiring stricter compliance with our by-laws and covenants.

No utility trailers, lawn equipment, trash cans, boats, or motor homes are permitted on any of the streets in Summerlake or forward of the front setback line on any property. Vehicles not up to date with licensing will be reported to the proper city agency for handling.

Thanking you for your compliance as it keeps Summerlake in the upper reaches of the city's most desirable neighborhoods. Wishing you and yours a happy and prosperous new year.

Summerlake is a family friendly (and pet friendly!) community where you will regularly see folks walking, running, or biking about. There are several pet stations located throughout the community to ensure these common areas stay clean and clear of unwanted 'hazards'. So, please be sure to pick up after your furry friends! To ensure everyone in our community feels comfortable, all pets are required to be leashed at all times.

Are you an avid reader that just can't pass up a good book or simply looking for something new to share with the kiddos? We have a free mini-library station located in the pool parking area! Be sure to stop by and pick out a new adventure or even add a new to the current collection!
