(Excerpts from Piper’s Landing Y&CC Legal Documents are bolded).

The three-year rule has currently been waived by the BOD. Currently, there is no limit to the number of years the unit can be rented. At any time, the BOD may resend this directive. At that time, the homeowner will then have three more years from that date to be able to rent his home.

No pets are permitted in the Clubhouse, in the neighborhood swimming pools, on the tennis courts, or upon the golfing facility.
I have to admit, I thought the Dog Park was an ok idea when it was proposed primarily because we do not have any pets. However, when we kept a friend’s dog, which we both adore and want shared custody, I found the dog park to be a great place to let them run free. In season, the dogs bring their owners to Yappy Hour. The dogs catch up on all the latest news and have a glass of wine while the owners run up to the fence and greet any new arrival. I think I have that right. Anyway, it is a great asset for Piper’s Landing Y&CC
