Hi there! I live near the tennis court and recently some of the pavement to the left of the court was buried (I think this was because of a policy that says that if the community creates new blacktop in one area it has to remove blacktop in another, but I am uncertain of this). I was wondering if it would be possible to fill in the newly cleared area with trees, and when the remainder of the blacktop is removed for some future project, to fill in that area with trees as well. If this is not possible, could someone tell me why? (For example is there policy that states that there must be X amount of open area near the common areas, etc?) Also can residents have any say in what types of trees are planted anywhere in the community?
There are so many dogs in our neighborhood, and there is a plethora of space near the tennis courts that could easily be transformed into a dog park. Not only would this provide a safe place for dogs to exercise and socialize but it would also keep our sidewalks and green spaces cleaner. What need to happen to propose this to the community and HOA?
