10 Ways to be a Great BHHCA Member
(and keep on your neighbor's good side)

Do Not park your car on the street or your yard. All vehicles must be parked in a garage or driveway. Street parking is only allowed for temporary guests for a few hours. Street parking is probably our number one complaint. Be courteous and do not continually park on the street or leave your vehicle there overnight.
block the sidewalks with parked cars. You'll be much loved by
neighborhood moms with strollers. Besides, it's illegal!
your dog(s) in a fenced yard or on a leash. Jefferson County has a
leash law. 91.002
RESTRAINT REQUIRED "All
animals shall be kept under restraint at all times as defined in this ordinance,
and any deviation or violation thereof is strictly prohibited."
You can see the law here. If you have a complaint about a
pet please call Jefferson
County Complaints and Stray Animal Pickup at 502-363-6609 for immediate help.
If you walk your dog(s),
clean up after your dog(s) during neighborhood walks. This is the Law and
not a neighborhood rule and should be reported as such. Your dog might want to
leave a gift, but it isnít the type your neighbors want.
your front yard free of toys, swimming pools and bicycles.
Curb appeal means a great deal to prospective home buyers in our
subdivision. Nobody wants to live next door to a daily yard sale.
your BHHCA dues on time, by April 30th. Nobody likes to be hassled over money
or have to hassle someone over it. Your dues pay for street lights,
the entrance signs,
as well as the maintenance of common areas. Paying on time avoids
additional fees and eventually having a lien filed against your
your home and yard.
Tall grass and weeds
encourage insects and rodents to homes. According to BHHCA
Declaration and Jefferson County Ordinance, lawn maintenance is
required and can be subcontracted. In other words, if you
don't cut your grass, the BHHCA
or Jefferson County
will have it done for you at
your cost. It may also be subject to fines by the County.
This includes "common areas" adjacent to your property. Many
of us have easements, culverts, or common grass areas that add to
your property area although not technically your property. The
Brooks of Hickory Hollow Community Association does not maintain any
of these areas and home owners are asked to mow and trim these areas
that add extra space and beauty to your property. Some
neighbors have gotten together with other neighbors to take turns in
sharing the responsibility to cut the larger areas adjacent to their
properties. We have always been fortunate to have great
residents that are willing to take care of this and not have the
Association pay for this, keeping our dues some of the lowest in the
|7.||Get to know your
Watch out for your neighborís
house. Know when they will be out of town. Watch out for any
strange activity going on in the subdivision. We can all watch
out for each other and make this a safer place to live. Keep
garage doors closed, doors/windows locked at all times, and
lights on at night. If you have
seen a problem or the victim of a crime or vandalism to your
property be sure the let us know:
us on facebook and let your neighbors know so we can all watch out
for each other.
Get to know your Board Members. Most problems can be handled among
neighbors, the BHHCA doesn't have to use heavy-handed tactics to
resolve a dispute. It's always better when you work it out
yourself. If you can't resolve an issue with your neighbor,
contact any Board Member to help out.
Don't build anything without checking the BHHCA Declaration of Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions. Nobody wants to see a two-story barn next door and you donít want to build any structures or other "improvements" that violate the Declaration (deed restrictions). This can be avoided if everyone checks before they build. The Declaration is on this website and recorded in the Public Records of Jefferson County. The worst thing is not to check and then be asked to take down that new fence or basketball goal you just spent lots of money on!
