Homes Association of
Temporary Use of
RV/Utility Trailers, Other Restricted Items
goal of the RV/Utility Trailer Policy is to provide the method by which HACH
homeowners may temporarily park otherwise restricted vehicles on their property
(or adjacent streets), while complying with Article III (h) of the Association
of a utility trailer for hauling requires that it be parked at the property
while being loaded or unloaded. Use of an RV typically involves loading and
unloading, cleaning and other maintenance activities. This policy supports
those basic actions.
may have temporary need to use other items restricted by Article III (h)
(canopies, tents, inoperable/unlicensed vehicles, etc.). This Board policy
supports that use, but the overriding goal is to maintain the neat and
attractive appearance of the neighborhood.
The restriction against using RVs of
any kind at the property for sleeping purposes (Article III (h)) remains in
effect, regardless of the permission granted to park a vehicle at the property.
- Utility / travel trailers and
other RVs may be parked at the property “overnight” by notifying the office
(phone or email). This option is limited to a single night
and is not intended to be extended by calling each following day.
Multiple-day-in-row parking requires a written permit (see below). Habitual use of the 24 hour courtesy (e.g. multiple times in a
week, or every weekend during the summer) is considered a violation.
- An Association permit, approved by
Association office staff, is required. The permit helps communicate to the
neighbors the planned use of the vehicle in the neighborhood. Signatures of the
neighbors most affected will be the most significant (you may not need the
signature of the neighbor who cannot see the vehicle from their house). The permit
allows up to 3 days for vehicle maintenance, loading, etc. Parking longer than
three days requires an “other use” permit (see below). Habitual use of 3 day
permits (e.g. every weekend during the summer, or renewing every 3 days during
an extended project) is discouraged.
An Association permit, approved by
members of the Board of Directors (at permit committee or full Board meetings),
is required to:
- Park utility/travel trailers or
RVs at the property for longer than 3 days. (For example, a utility trailer
could be approved for a construction or yard project that takes a week.)
- Park vehicles or items otherwise
restricted and listed in Article III (h) at the property for any length of
time. (For example, a canopy could be approved to temporarily protect
construction materials or for use during a special event on the property.) Planned
length of use is required information. Use of the item beyond the approved
length of time is considered a violation.
