All landscape irrigation systems, plants, shrubs, bushes and trees that were installed when an owner bought their home from the developer are maintained by the VillageWalk Home Owner’s Association at no additional expense to the owner. Check out the photo gallery of most plants in the complex. Owner installed changes that have been approved by the Architectural Control Committee Board (additional landscaping, plants, flowers, etc.) are the responsibility of the owner to maintain. The VillageWalk Homeowner’s Association can provide assistance to owners who are contemplating making changes or additions.
If you are in need of landscape attention at your home, please contact the Home Owners Association Office located in the Town Center at 949-9909 and describe your concern. We will investigate your concern during the weekly landscape walkthroughs. If plants are to be replaced, please allow two weeks for that to be completed. In some instances, the corrective measure would be to fertilize or treat for pests and allow time for the plant material to recover.
We ask your understanding when, at certain times (such as South Florida's Phase III drought conditions), plant replacements are deferred.
Please contact the Home Owners Association Office located in the Town Center at 949-9909 and describe your concern. The irrigation team is on site daily Monday – Friday and should be able to address your concern within two (2) business days.
The Home Owners Association does not budget for, nor contract for, any pest elimination for the individual homes. Please contact a licensed and insured Pest Control Company to perform periodic pest control should the need arise.
The Board of Directors will permit the installation of hurricane shutters provided the panels are painted white or the color of the home, or they are clear. They are only permitted to be closed during the hurricane season which is June 1 - November 30. Otherwise, shutters may not be closed unless the threat of a storm is eminent.
The Architectural Control Committee meets periodically to review each application that has been submitted by an Owner to make any changes to the exterior of the homes. The Declaration of Covenants and Restrictions clearly outlines what requires approval, i.e. the installation of a satellite dish, any yard décor, landscape changes etc.
In order to provide owners with a quicker response, the administrative office will process Architectural Change applications weekly. The Architectural Control Committee will meet on a weekly basis in season (January 16, 2009 through March 2009) and, otherwise, on the third Thursday of the month,
