Intent and Interpretation

Intent of the Residential Deed RestrictionsThe deed restrictions hereinafter referred to as the “restrictions” are prescribed rules that may be more restrictive than county ordinances and aid in uniform enforcement in the preservation of the aesthetics and quality of the Pine Ridge community. These restrictions were created as the general plan of improvement for Lot owners and are designed to protect and preserve his/her common interest
Figures and IllustrationsUnless specified elsewhere in this document all figures and illustrations will apply to all sections of this document.
Order of PrecedenceThe text of this document will take precedent over all figures, illustrations, and charts.

1.01 Architectural/Building Site Restrictions

A. Structures

1. Each and every Lot shall be known and described as a residential Lot. No Main Structure shall be constructed on any residential Lot other than one single family dwelling, contractor site-built Main Structure not to exceed two stories and/or 35 feet in height as measured from the slab. All structures must be constructed of new materials.

2. Geodesic domes, A-Frames, Chateaus, modular, prefabricated and mobile buildings will not be permitted as a Main Structure nor as an Accessory Structure. Sheds, Greenhouses and Gazebos may be prefabricated.

B. Tree Preservation and Lot Development
It is the intent that as many trees as possible be left on the property while allowing the homeowner maximum flexibility in the use of the property. Further, to provide new property owners a tool to document and mandate to the builder, via the tree preservation, the property owners’ vision for tree preservation.

1. Requirements for New Main Structure Construction

a. Prior to the commencement of clearing, a tree preservation/clearing/replacement plan must be presented by the owner or his/her agent to the ADC for approval, along with the county clearing permit. Said plan will show trees to remain and trees to be added, including their type, diameter, height, and location. Trees to be preserved shall be clearly marked on the lot and documented on the plan prior to clearing work.

b. A minimum of 30 mature trees of 6 inch or greater diameter as measured from 4 feet above grade will be maintained, per whole acre of property. For Lots greater than one acre and legally combined as one Lot, the required trees may be distributed on any portion of the Lot. For example, all of the 90 trees required on a three-acre Lot may have all these trees on one of the three acres. This will facilitate the efficient use of property for pastures.   If a Lot has less than 30 mature trees, the planting of additional trees will not be required. It is suggested, but not required, that preservation of existing trees be focused on the perimeter of the Lot. If existing trees interfere with the planned placement of the Main Structure or Accessory Structures, their removal will be permitted even if it results in a per acre tree count below 30.

c. Lots shall not be cleared before being inspected by a licensed environmental consultant, certified inspector, or certified builder to ensure that there are no species of animals present that are protected by State or Federal Laws. Said certification must be submitted to the ADC with the construction application.

d. Within ninety (90) days of issuance of a County Certificate of Occupancy or final permit, all surface areas disturbed by construction activity shall be landscaped with plantings, grass, trees, bushes, sod, mulch, or smooth decorative landscaping stones except in areas where equines will be stabled.

2. Requirements for Subsequent owner(s) of Developed Properties
If a minimum of 30 mature trees (6 inch or greater diameter as measured from 4 feet above grade per whole acre of developed property) exists after the change of ownership, they shall remain unless a tree or trees present a danger to an existing structure or if additional construction is undertaken following an approved ADC application.

a. If existing trees interfere with the planned placement of Accessory Structures, their removal will be permitted even if it results in a per acre tree count below 30

b. If a Lot has less than 30 mature trees, the planting of additional trees will not be required.Replacement trees may be any level of maturity.

C. Improvements
No Accessory Structure may be built or placed on any Lot unless the Main Structure has an approved county permit and wall construction has begun.

D. Structure Setback
On all non-Corner Lots, no structure, with the exception of Fences, shall be erected nearer than forty (40) feet to the Front Property Line of said Lots; not nearer than twenty-five (25) feet to any interior side Lot line; nor nearer than twenty-five (25) feet to the rear Lot line.

On Corner Lots, no structure, with the exception of Fences, shall be permitted nearer than forty (40) feet to either street Lot lines); not nearer than twenty-five (25) feet to any interior side Lot line; nor nearer than twenty-five (25) feet to the rear Lot line (the rear Lot line being opposite and most distant from the front Lot line having the least dimension on Corner Lots).

E. Lot Owner Responsibility for Construction Contractors

Property Owners are responsible for the actions or lack of actions of their contractors.  As such any contractors that violate any restrictions in this document will result in fines to the Lot Owner.

1.02 Lot Usage Restrictions

A. Sub Leasing or Leasing
All Lot(s) and/or existing structures, (built or to be built), must be sold or leased in their entirety. Sub Leasing is not permitted. It is the responsibility of the homeowner to provide any prospective tenant with a copy of the restrictions and provide the office with the required information in section 2.04 to proceed with the leasing. However, the Lot owner, having met this obligation, is still not relieved of the responsibility to ensure that all things which occur on this property comply with the restrictions.

B. Restricted Home Occupation Activities
The issue is whether a Home Occupation will impact the residential character of the community. Working remotely for an employer not located in Pine Ridge is not prohibited.

1. All Home Occupation work or products taking place on any Lot shall be conducted within an enclosed structure.

2. No display of merchandise, products, or advertising shall take place outside of or be visible from outside any structure.

3. A Home Occupation shall not include any walk-up / drive-up retail or wholesale sales on the premises.

4. No equipment or process shall be used in a Home Occupation that creates electrical interference or creates electronic interference of any kind in any electrical device off the Lot.

5. No person other than the residing property owner and his/her family members residing in the Main Structure shall be engaged in the Home Occupation. Renters may not conduct Home Occupations.

6. There shall be no visible storage of materials, parts or equipment on any Lot, as viewed from the street or neighboring property. No vehicle or equipment with any signage indicating the home occupation, commercial use or for hire shall be parked on any Lot where said vehicle is visible from any street or any neighboring property.

7. There shall be no propagation for onsite sale or sale on any Pine Ridge property, of fruits, vegetables, flowers, trees, grasses, or other plants.

8. No more than 1 “Estate Sale” and no more than 2 “privately organized Yard Sales” per calendar year per property owner will be permitted. Yard Sales will be conducted for no more than 2 consecutive days. Estate Sales shall be conducted for no longer than 10 consecutive days. Parking for these events shall only be on the sponsoring homeowner’s property and the homeowner’s right of way. See 4.03 F. for restrictions on signage for these sales.

C. Model, Speculative Homes, and Homes under construction
1. No building may be used as a model home for a period of time exceeding fifty (50) months from the date of the County Certificate of Occupancy.

2. For so long as any Lot with a residential structure is being used as a model home, only one sign may be displayed on the Lot. The builder must declare on the ADC application the home is to be used as a model home and include the sign design with the submittal, and only under the following conditions: The total display surface of any sign shall not exceed two thousand (2,000) square inches on each side; the faces of three (3) or more sided signs shall not exceed a total combined area of two thousand (2,000) square inches. The sign may only be placed on one or two posts; the signpost(s) shall not exceed four (4) inches in diameter; no part of the sign or sign posts shall exceed sixty (60) inches in height above grade; and the sign shall not be placed nearer than five (5) feet to any Lot Line.

3. For so long as any structure is in the course of construction, sign(s) identifying the contractor(s) performing the work shall be permitted under the following conditions: One builder’s sign shall be permitted per Lot so long as the sign is no larger than one thousand (1,000) square inches, excluding posts and rails; no part of the sign or sign posts shall exceed forty-eight (48) inches in height above grade. All other companies associated with the construction of the structure are each limited to one sign per Lot. The sign shall not exceed three hundred (300) square inches and shall be located in close proximity to the Builder’s sign, but no higher than thirty-six (36) inches above grade. No sign(s) shall be placed nearer than five (5) feet to any Lot Line.

4. No model home shall be used as a rental unit or for overnight habitation.

5. See section 9.01 A. for construction and plan approval time constraints.

1.03 Procedure for Adding, Deleting, Modifying or Clarifying Restrictions

Upon adoption of this document, all current Reasonable Use Rules will be revoked.

A. Additions, Modifications and Deletions to the Declarations

Occasionally a situation may occur in which the Board, ADC, an Agent, or a Lot Owner identifies a condition which is not specifically called out in this document. To rectify this situation, the Board, ADC, an Agent, or Lot Owner may propose a new restriction, a change to an existing restriction, or the deletion of an existing restriction. This proposal will be submitted to the Board and will include the following information: the exact language or any modifications in language, its appropriate placement in this existing document, and/or reason for the deletion, modification or addition of the named restriction prior to approval by the PRPOA Board and the Lot Owners of Pine Ridge. The proposal must also identify any changes to other parts of this document because of the proposed modification, deletion or addition of the restriction. A proposal meeting the above requirements will follow the procedures in steps below:

1. The suggested proposal must appear on the published agenda of and be moved and voted on during a regularly scheduled or special Board meeting. A unanimous vote of the Board is required to approve the suggested proposal which includes the information listed above.If the Board determines the proposal has merit, it may submit the proposal to the Association’s attorney for legal review.

2. If the Board does not find merit, the petitioner may demand an electronic survey and/or conduct a petition with regard to the proposal. If 300 petition signatures and positive electronic survey responses in total are received a referendum will be conducted

3. The referendum must be approved by a simple majority of Lot Owners who participate in the vote, after notice to all Lot Owners. If the suggested proposal is approved, modifications to the Restrictions including changes to the indices, figures, tables, and any appropriate definitions will be published and recorded in the public records of Citrus County.

B. Clarification / Reasonable Use Rules

Reasonable Use Rules allow for the clarification of existing restrictions, not additions, modifications, or deletions. Florida Statute 720 allows the Board to establish Reasonable Use Rules based on a majority vote without endorsement by the membership. The Pine Ridge Property Owners Association choses to not use Reasonable Use Rules for indefinite periods of time as allowed by Florida Statute 720 due to the potential for misuse. Instead the community will use the following process to address clarification and revision of deed restrictions.

Any proposed Reasonable Use Rule / clarification will include the following information: the exact language of each clarification, its location within this document, and any other language in any other restriction which would necessitate a change if the clarification is approved. Essentially the proposal will consist of a revision to the existing Deed Restrictions. A proposal meeting these requirements will follow the procedures in steps 1 – 5 below:

1. If the Board determines the proposal has merit, it may submit the proposal to the Association’s attorney for legal review.

2. The proposed Use Rule/ Deed Restriction update / clarification must appear on the published agenda and be moved and voted on during a regularly scheduled or special Board meeting. One proponent and one opponent to the proposed Reasonable Use Rule will be allowed to present their case at the board meeting and may speak for up to 30 minutes. Said proponents and opponents may be either a property owner or his/her own legal counsel. Additional property owners may speak in accordance with the normal time limit for each meeting. A unanimous vote by the Board is required to implement and enforce a 90-day Reasonable Use Rule enforcement period. During the Reasonable Use Rule enforcement period the Reasonalble Use Rule will be enforceable as a Restriction thus preventing the Lot Owners requested action for 90 days allowing for the community to vote, via referendum, to approve and incorporate the clarification into the deed restrictions. The motion must also approve sending to the Lot Owners an update to the restrictions. The update must include all information as proposed.

3. The proposed clarification must be submitted such that a response can be reasonably obtained from the Lot Owners within the 90-day Reasonable Use Rule enforcement period stated in step 1 above. The referendum which follows must be approved by a simple majority of Lot Owners who participate in the vote, after notice to all Lot Owners.

4. If the Use Rule is not accepted by the Lot Owners within the 90-day Reasonable Use Rule enforcement period, the proposed Reasonable Use Rule is suspended. If approved the Reasonalble Use Rule will become an update to the Deed Restrictions

5.Any attempt to approve a similar clarification Reasonable Use Rule will not be allowed until two Board election cycles have passed dating from a rejection by the Lot Owners.

6. If the Board should withdraw the proposed Use Rule prior to the 90-day enforcement period, the prohibition in step 4 above will remain in effect dating from the date of the withdrawal. The withdrawal vote must be noticed in the agenda and voted on at an open meeting. The Board must state why they are proposing the withdrawal at this meeting. The Board shall take no more than 30 minutes to state this reason. One advocate and one opponent of the clarification will be allowed to speak for up to 30 minutes each prior to the vote to withdraw. The withdrawal vote requires a simple majority of the Board members present.

Construction and demolition activity, excluding emergency repairs, shall not be permitted between the hours of 10:00 pm until 7:00 am of the next day.

B. Exterior Lighting – All exterior lighting, including Sport Court lighting, on any Lot or structure must be designed and erected as to avoid illumination of any other portion of properties except the Lot upon which the lighting is erected. For clarity, the ability of seeing another Lot Owners lighting from one’s property does not constitute a nuisance.

If a light is ordered and paid for by an owner and is installed in the right of way by the power company, should the light become a trespass on a neighboring property, and a complaint is made by the party experiencing the light trespass, then the purchaser of the service must have the power company install a block out shield to remedy the light trespass.

Utility Fencing may be used to accomplish this. Due to Air conditioning units and generators requiring unrestricted air flow, they are exempt from this Restriction. Well and well tank location are dictated by state and local regulations which may override the location portion of this restriction. This does not relieve the property owner from the restriction to ensure the tanks are not visible from the street or neighboring property.

E. Trash receptacles and recycle bins shall be stored out of street view and neighboring property view except on trash, recycling, or yard waste pick-up day. This may be accomplished by landscaping or Utility Fencing. Utility Fencing requires ADC approval.

Each Lot owner of a Lot so conveyed (deeded) shall automatically become a Member of this Association. Membership shall cease and terminate upon the sale, transfer or disposition of the Member’s Lot. Members shall be entitled to one vote in the affairs of the Association for each Lot, tract or parcel owned by said Member. In the event a Lot, tract or parcel is owned by a Association, partnership or other such entity, the membership resulting thereto shall nevertheless have only one vote which shall be exercised by the owner or person designated in writing by the officers, principals or partners of said entity as the one entitled to cast the vote for the membership concerned. Where a Lot, tract or parcel is owned by more than one natural person, including a husband and wife, no voting certificate or written designation shall be necessary, but only one (1) vote may be cast per Lot, tract or parcel, and such vote shall be cast as the co-owners of such Lot, tract or parcel determine among themselves.

10.03 Annual Assessment Schedule

The annual assessments to be paid to the Association for maintenance and upkeep as is further described herein for each Lot subject thereto, shall be as follows:

ASSESSMENT SCHEDULE

In the event additional lands are incorporated into this Declaration of Restrictions by way of future amendment as set forth herein, each new Lot located on such additional lands shall pay the base rate and a fee factor assigned by the Board of Directors at the time such additional lands are made subject to this Declaration.

If a Lot is divided, resubdivided, or the size-altered in accordance with Section 2.03 and Section 9.01, the owner shall pay his or her proportionate fair share based on the percentage of ownership of the divided, resubdivided or altered Lot. By way of example, if the owner of Lot 1 in Country Club Estates and the owner of Lot 3 in Country Club Estates decide to purchase the Lot between their Lots, Lot 2, and divide Lot 2 equally amongst them, the owner of Lot 1 would pay $79.20 for his existing Lot 1 and $39.60 for half of Lot 2. The same would be paid by the owner of Lot 3. Owner of Lot 1 and Lot 3 will each receive a bill for $118.80. However, if Lot 2 is divided 60% to Lot 1 and 40% to Lot 3, then the owner of Lot 1 would pay $79.20 for his existing Lot 1 and $47.52 for Lot 2, reflecting 60% percent of the annual assessment for Lot 2. The owner of Lot 3 would pay $79.20 for his existing Lot 3 and $31.68 for Lot 2, reflecting 40% percent of the annual assessment for Lot 2.

Assessments shall be due and payable in advance on or before the first day of each and every year for the next succeeding year or at such other reasonable intervals as the Association, by its Board of Directors, may determine. Initial Assessments shall commence the month following the month of conveyance. If a judgment of foreclosure is entered, and/or other judicial sale of a Lot takes place, then the buyer at such foreclosure or other judicial sale shall be obligated to the greatest extent allowed by law to pay the delinquent assessments owed on the Lot. The Association shall further have the authority to charge interest at the highest rate allowable by law on any unpaid assessment or installment, and shall further have the authority to charge an administrative late fee in an amount not to exceed the greater of Twenty Five ($25.00) Dollars or five (5%) percent of the amount of each installment that is paid past the due date. Any payment received by the Association and accepted shall be applied first to any interest accrued, then to any administrative late fee, then to any costs and reasonable attorneys’ fees incurred in collection, and then to the delinquent assessment. This applies notwithstanding any restrictive endorsement, designation or instruction placed on or accompanying a payment.

The Association may increase the base rate for assessments (but not the Assessment factor), from time to time as is hereinafter provided. Said base rate may be increased or decreased by the Association except that the said base rate shall not be raised more than twenty-five percent (25%) of the then existing base rate during any one calendar year. Said base rate may not be raised to a sum more than double the initial base rate without the joint consent for any increase thereafter of the owners of record of not less than fifty-one percent (51%), in number, of all the owners of deeded Lots subject thereto who actually vote for or against said increase including the owners of those deeded Lots covered by other restrictions contained in similar provisions affecting other Lots shown on plats of units of Pine Ridge Subdivision whether recorded now or in the future, if said base rate is decreased or extinguished by the Association, the service provided by the Association may be decreased or extinguished so that the Association shall not be required to pay more for the services hereinafter enumerated than is collected by said assessments.

In addition to the assessments authorized above, the Association may levy, special assessments. Any special assessment levied for the purpose of defraying, in whole or in part, the cost of constructing, a capital improvement must have the assent of two-thirds (2/3) of the votes of the members who are voting in person or by proxy at a meeting duly called for that purpose. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the requirement to obtain a two-thirds (2/3) vote of the members at a duly called meeting shall not apply where a special assessment is levied for necessary maintenance, for operating expenses that exceed amounts collected, for an emergency special assessment, as determined in the sole discretion of the Board of Directors of the Association. The Association may establish special benefit subdistricts within all the Pine Ridge Subdivision including those Units affected by these restrictions and those Units in Pine Ridge Subdivision affected by other similar restrictions for the purpose of levying special assessments or capital improvements of primary benefit to the properties located in the particular subdistrict affected, in which case the special assessments would be levied against and applied only to properties within said subdistrict and would require the assent of two-thirds (2/3) of the votes of the members within said affected subdistrict only. In the event street lighting is not provided by a special taxing district then these restrictions and the initial assessment set forth hereto may be amended to provide for the reasonable cost of street lighting.
