This article is a reminder about the rules in our governing documents concerning basketball hoops. It is great to see children playing basketball in the streets. However it is important to understand that the master developer was concerned enough about this matter that specific language was added to the CC&R’s and the Architectural Standards that outline how basketball hoops are be used and where. These articles were added to help with both safety and to mitigate liability for the community.
Below is recap of the relevant sections of the governing documents.
4.18 Basketball Hoops and Fixed Sports Apparatus Permanent installation of basketball hoops and other similar sports/play apparatus in the front or sides of a Lot are subject to the approval of the AC. No apparatus may be attached to the perimeter fences. AC will consider basketball hoop installations adjacent to the driveway provided the location does not encourage play on any street or otherwise adversely affect adjacent properties. Backyard installations do not require an application provided the following design guidelines are met: maintain a minimum ten (10) foot setback from all perimeter fences and the residence, conform to all building code requirements, and do not exceed twelve (12) feet in height. Any variance from these guidelines will require an application.
