Covenants Overview

The Crowley Ranch Reserve covenants are designed to protect property values while allowing freedom of lifestyle. Each phase of the development has its own covenants but they are essentially the same in their intent. An overview of the essential elements is shown below.

Property Owners Association

The Association is made up of the property owners and governed by a five-member Board of Directors comprised of four property owners and one of the developers (or their representative).

Common Areas

Each property owner has the right and privilege to use and enjoy the common areas for the purposes for which they were designed.

The common areas cannot be used for offensive activities that annoy the neighborhood. Snowmobiles, motorcycles, ATVs, and any other motorized recreational vehicles are not allowed in common areas.

The Association develops, improves and maintains the common areas.

Association Fees

Property owners are charged a monthly or annual assessment to cover the costs of maintaining roads and the common areas and for capital improvements and facilities to enhance the property owners’ use and enjoyment of the land.

Building/Landscaping Restrictions

No parcel can be subdivided.

All buildings must be approved in advance by a Review Committee composed of two property owners and one of the developers (or their assign).

The buildings permitted on each parcel are restricted to a single family dwelling, a private garage with shop, storage, and barn. Separate guest quarters are not permitted. All single family dwellings must be at least sixteen hundred (1,600) square feet on the main floor, exclusive of porches, decks, patios, and garages, and no more than four thousand (4,000) square feet of living area.

Residential styles may vary, but exterior materials must be log, rock, brick, wood, or wood siding. Stucco and adobe exteriors are permitted. No mobile homes, trailers, old buildings or pre-assembled homes are allowed. Pre-assembled log homes are an exception.

All water, gas, electricity, telephone, TV cable and similar must be installed underground. Propane tanks shall not be visible from neighboring property.

Fences must conform in location, design, material, color, height, and size to reasonable guidelines established by the Review Committee. Fences may not enclose areas any greater than 18,000 square feet.

Landscaping, with the exception of plants confined to vegetable or flower gardens, must be approved by the Review Committee and must generally conform to native varieties. Gardens and manicured lawns cannot be larger than two thousand (2,000) square feet.

Other Restrictions

Property owners may not run a commercial business from their property. However, an Owner or occupant with the specific approval of the Association, may engage in their professional activities and maintain an office within their residence for such activities providing it involves no regular traffic with the public and the attendance of no more than two (2) employees.

Pets are limited to a maximum of four, of which two may be dogs. Horses belonging to property owners are an exception to this limit. Any barn or structure housing the horses(s) must be of the same architectural quality of the primary residence, and it must be approved by the Architectural Control Committee.

The developer and the Association have the option of building common stables, corrals, fences, and other necessary structures for horses or other livestock. Property owners may keep and graze horses during the summer, but must abide by the rules and regulations of the Association.

Property owners are prohibited from feeding or attempting to domesticate the wild game.

Hunting, trapping and discharging of firearms is not permitted on parcels or in the common areas unless such activities are expressly authorized and permitted by the Board of the Association or the developer.

Snowmobiles, motorcycles, trail bikes and other off-road motorized vehicles shall not be used in the Reserve except in accordance with rules established by the Association, and absent rules permitting such use, those vehicles are prohibited.
