  • See Section 9 of the Rules and Regulations. Such changes may include, but are not limited to, decks, handicapped access and satellite dishes.


I have a basement door exit, can I install any type of patio? 

  • A brick or cement patio can be installed at the door and under the deck if desired. Because the land is "community" property, the patio cannot extend past the base dimensions of the deck.
  • Please verify specific dimensions with Premier Management.  


I'd like to install a deck - Do I need HOA approval?  

  • Yes. Please submit a drawing of what your deck will look like (no larger than 12x14) with a written request to Camco Management for review and approval.


Can I stain my deck?  

  • Yes. You may stain/waterproof your deck any stain color you want but we ask that you use a color that is a natural stain. 
  • You may not paint your deck with solid colors as this will take away the wood grain that is represented throughout the community.


Can I install a storm door?  

  • Yes. You may purchase any brand of door you desire from any supplier but the color must be white or Bordeaux (Home Depot Behr Exterior Paint is a suggestion).  
  • In addition, the storm door must visibly show the entire front door (i.e., bottom half of the door cannot be solid while the top half is glass or a screen).  
  • The entire length of the door must be visible and the following guidelines are helpful:

  1. Completely Glass
  2. Completely Screen
  3. Half Glass/Half Screen.

My unit has a crack in the stucco and a disconnected downspout. Who is responsible for the repairs?
