Generally, the Brookhill HOA holds one member meeting each year. This meeting is an opportunity for all members to receive important updates from the board of directors, see the Brookhill HOA budget, present concerns and ideas, elect directors, and participate in other business.
A board of directors oversees the affairs of the Brookhill HOA. The number of directors, their nomination and election, and their activities on the board are specified and governed by the Brookhill HOA bylaws. Directors serve on a voluntary, unpaid basis for 2-year terms and are elected by the members at the annual meeting.
Brookhill Lot Restrictions
Before doing any construction on your property, contact the Architectural Control Committee.
Use the Questions/Comments page and select “Architectural Control Committee” as the recipient, or send an email to [email protected].
Listed here are the restrictions considered to be the most pertinent to members in the development and utilization of their property.
- Right to Approve Plans
The board of directors must approve any changes to a property’s exterior design or construction on a property.
- Required Building Materials
Roofs must be wood shingles, wood shakes, slate tile, or composition. However, if composition shingles are used, the board must approve the color. Generally, dark gray and earth tones are acceptable. Exterior walls of a building, structure, or appurtenance shall be of brick, stone, wood shingles, wood siding, wood paneling, plate glass, vinyl siding, masonite, or a combination thereof. Windows, doors, and louvers shall be of wood, or metal and glass. Any building products which may come into general use for dwelling construction in this area shall be acceptable if approved in writing by the board of directors.
- Repair of Damages
In the event of fire, windstorm, or other damage, no property shall be permitted to remain in a damaged condition for longer than six months.
- Outbuildings Prohibited
No building or other detached structure may be erected without the board of directors’ approval.
- Use of Land
Any residence erected or maintained on any of the lots hereby restricted shall be designed for occupancy by a single family. No business buildings shall be erected, nor business of any nature conducted.
Fences must be a maximum of 6 feet in height and be of wood. No metal, wire, or chain-link fences are allowed, except an ornamental metal fence (e.g., wrought iron), unless approved in writing by the Board of Directors. On greenway lots, fencing is limited to a distance of fifteen feet from rear foundation walls. On corner lots, the constructed fence must not be nearer to the front street or the side street than the parallel projection of the side of the residence structure as actually built.
- Maintaining Sight Distance
No fence, wall, hedge, or shrub planting should obstruct sightlines between 2 to 6 feet above the roadways on corner lots.
No trees, shrubbery, structures, buildings, or fences shall be placed within the area of drainage easements, which may interfere with the function for drainage purposes.
- Signs Prohibited
No signs, advertisements, billboards, or advertising structures of any kind may be erected or maintained on any lot without the board’s consent.
- Vehicle Storage and Repairing Restriction
All repairs on vehicles are to be done inside garages. No vehicles (including auto, truck, motorcycle, motorbike, motor scooter, boat, airplane, house trailer, RV, boat trailer, camping trailer, motor home, or vehicles of any other type) may be stored on any of the lots, unless within the confines of a building. However, this restriction does not prohibit the regular parking in the driveway of not more than two passenger automobiles in running condition and a reasonable state of repair.
- Fuel Tanks Prohibited
No tank for fuel storage may be maintained above the surface of the ground on any of the lots hereby restricted.
- Pet Restriction
No wild, semi-wild, or domestic mammals, reptiles, or birds may be kept or maintained on any of the lots hereby restricted, except that no more than two dogs, two cats, two rabbits, or two birds may be kept on any such lots provided that they are not kept, bred, or maintained for any commercial purpose. Also, Kansas City has a leash law, so all pets must be leashed when off your property. As a courtesy to your Brookhill neighbors, please, when walking your dog, carry a bag and pick up after your dog.
