Reason:A beautiful wooden arbor that has been constructed would have to be removed. The arbor design and placement was approved by the subdivision Homeowner Architectural Review Committee. As homeowners we assumed it could be built up to the property line. We made an honest mistake.
ECCA position: No Action We would prefer to allow the neighborhood (Penhurst subdivision) to sort this out. Arbor built to side of house – all the way to the lot line, waiving side setback. Neighborhood Architectural Control Committee approved construction but didn’t realize structure would not be built in accordance with regulations.
