Dear Neighbors~

We, the Board of Directors, need your help. We are having trouble finding the paint color for the street/stop sign posts and mailbox posts. Sherwin-Williams no longer carries TAVERN GREEN. We found a company that has a color called TAVERN GREEN but it is almost black. If anyone has an old can or has the number of the paint, please let us know.

We appreciate any help you can give us.

Thank you,

Benwood HOA BOD

Summer is here!

June 18, 2015

Dear Neighbor:

Summer is here!  As we all start spending more time outdoors, please be mindful of your neighbors.  The board has received complaints about neighborhood restriction violations.  Please keep in mind that restrictions were put in place by the developer, not the Homeowner’s Association, to protect the beauty of Benwood and the property values of our homes for years to come.  If you are unfamiliar with our restrictions and the actions that the HOA can take to remedy violations, please visit our website:  www.benwoodhoa.com and click on the “Important Information” tab to get a complete copy of our restrictions.

Here is a list of common items brought to our attention:

.  No above ground swimming pools shall be permitted.

.  No signs advertising personal businesses or products can be displayed.

.  Parking on the street.  You are not allowed to park on the street for lengthy periods of time.

.  Trailers, boats, motor homes, campers, and the like are not to be parked in your driveway or front yard for more than 3 days.  If you have a boat, trailer or camper, please park it in your garage, out of sight; or in your backyard whenever feasible; or offsite in an appropriate location. 

.  Lawns must be kept mowed to approximately 6 inches or less and landscaping must be maintained.

If you are violating any of these restrictions, please take steps to remedy the situation.  In the next few weeks, the Architectural Review Committee will be working hard with homeowners to find solutions for keeping Benwood beautiful.  The Homeowner’s Association exists to help protect our neighborhood.

Please also remember all building projects and major landscaping projects that will affect the outside appearance of your home must be approved by the ARC.  This includes, but is not restricted to:  removal of numerous trees, installing in ground swimming pools, building storage buildings, and covering decks, building decks, or adding additions to your home.  Again, please read our restrictions for a complete listing of requirements.  You can get an Architectural Review Application at our website:  www.benwoodhoa.com (“Important Information” tab).

If you have any questions, please email us at:  benwoodhoa@gmail.com

Please be a good neighbor and help protect all of our property values!
