Violation of Covenants – Trash Cans, Boats, Trailers, etc.

In an effort to maintain the appeal, integrity and property values of our beautiful neighborhood, the Pine Forest Country Club Community Association, Inc. would like to remind residents of a few of the covenants which make Pine Forest a highly desirable and acclaimed Lowcountry community:

“No utility trailer, camper, recreational vehicle, boat, tent,
barn, tree house, steel building, or other similar outbuilding or structure shall be placed on any lot at any time, either temporarily or permanently….”

“Each lot owner shall provide a screened area not generally visible from the road to serve as a service yard and an area for the storage of garbage receptacles and fuel tanks or similar storage receptacles….”

Unfortunately, a number of residents are in violation of the above covenants. We respectfully request that anyone in violation please take corrective action. If you notice a neighbor violating a covenant, please encourage them to adhere to the rules which were established to maintain the allure and character of our community. We are specifically urging all residents to please remove all boats, trailers, etc., from your property. We also ask that you place your garbage cans and receptacles in an area where they out of sight from the road, golf course and other residents.

Thank you for your time. Adhering to these covenants will benefit us all as we strive to ensure Pine Forest remains an attractive and highly sought-after Lowcountry community!

Respectfully,
The Board of Directors
Pine Forrest Country Club Community Association, Inc.

The board has received complaints and concerns about cars being parked on the street often and for extended periods of time. Please be courteous to your neighbors and refrain from on-street parking in our neighborhood.  Please see the Town of Summerville Municipal Code on parking.

In the Legacy at Pine Forest section, parking on the street is prohibited by the covenants (see page 57). Contact CMG for more information.
