Policy Resolution #4 - Procedure to Resolve SHHA Fence Violations APPROVED
Unfortunately, neither the Board of Directors, nor the group of homeowners who approached the Board about a new petition to change the SHHA Restrictive Covenants for Fences were able to get sufficient community support to change the Restrictive Covenants.
Therefore, at the September 11th 2014 meeting of the Board of Directors, the Board voted on, and enacted Policy Resolution #4 - Procedure to Resolve SHHA Fence Violations. The Board believes that establishing and publishing a policy for resolving existing, non-compliant fences in the community will ensure fair, and consistent enforcement moving forward, and will ultimately bring all homes in the community back into compliance with the SHHA Restrictive Covenants.
This Policy Resolution was thoroughly reviewed by our legal counsel to ensure compliance with applicable Virginia and Fairfax County Law.

Our legal team has advised us that we MUST identify any non-compliant fences as existing violations during resale inspections, in order to preserve our ability to enforce the Restrictive Covenants, and ultimately bring all homes in the community into compliance.
