FAQs has been updated!
Thank you for taking the time to complete the website survey, as the SCPLOA Board needs to hear Lot Owner' concerns.
Here are a few answers to Lot Owner's frequently asked questions and responses to website survey comments!
The Board often receives complaints from Lot Owners regarding neglected neighboring properties. As part the Board’s ongoing efforts to maintain the appearance of our development, a review of neglected properties and structures which may be in violation of SCPLOA Governing Documents - Guidelines, Rules & Regulations, Item #16 - STRUCTURES, is being conducted.
Upon determination by the Board that a possible violation may exist, a courtesy notification is sent to the property owner informing them of the Board’s concerns and suggested remedy. This may be followed by further action depending on the resolution of the listed concerns.
The most common concerns are structures which appear to be in disrepair and lots which are not being maintained in a scenic manner. If your cabin and/or lot has been unattended, please clean it up and make necessary repairs to maintain property values and minimize safety and health issues.
Properties that are not being properly maintained may not only be in violation of our Guidelines, Rules & Regulations, but may also be in violation of the Kane County Nuisance Ordinance No. 2004-4. Item #24: Improper Maintenance.
So far action has been taken on all properties reported. Action taken is confidential.
