Regulating Season’s Greetings in HOAs
- by Alana Ashby
The most uniform way to regulate holiday displays is to grant owners a window of time to display decorations. Boards may choose to ban sounds. Here are other things to consider when creating holiday decorating guidelines:
- Timing. Choose a date when decorations can start being displayed and a date when they need to be taken down.
- Common areas. Small white lights will be installed by the association.
- Individual properties. Homeowners may install decorations on their properties. Holiday lighting must not interfere with a neighbor’s use of their property. The decorations must not be offensive or obscene.
- Enforcement. Items that do not conform to these guidelines will be removed by the association.
