Message from the Compliance Administrator
A new addition to the Design Guidelines! Many of you have seen or inquired about the address numbers painted on the curbs in front of homes. The Neighborhood reps brought to our attention that there should be some criteria in the Design Guidelines. The Board has approved a resolution as follows: Address numbers on the curb will be permitted under the following conditions: Total dimensions not to exceed 18”L x 7”H. No symbols will be permitted. Plain block numbering. Black on white only. The Town of Florence will also require a permit. Please contact me if you have any questions. REMINDER: March is the last month of the quarter to receive a nice yard postcard to be eligible to win a $50 Visa gift card!
