Covenants & Bylaws
One of the finest features of Seminole Forest is its wonderful natural forested beauty and pleasant open spaces. In keeping with this setting, we strongly discourage the use of fences and continuous hedges to partition the neighborhood. Privacy and patio screening are best accomplished with shrubbery and evergreens which have many environmental advantages.
- All fences must follow city codes and be approved by the ACC.
- All fences must begin and end at the rear corner of the house unless a variance is approved by the ACC.
