Santa Claus, along with Rudolph, will once again be touring the streets of our subdivision. One of Santa's many elves said that Santa is really looking forward to seeing the children of Park Charles South. Santa has promised a present for all of the children who come to see him on December 16th. Santa has asked us to enclose his route map to show the streets he is going to be riding on in his sleigh. So grab a good spot to say "Merry Christmas" to Santa.

2001 CHRISTMAS LIGHTING CONTEST

County Codes

NEWS FROM THE COUNTY

Unlicensed Vehicles

County ordinances requires unlicensed vehicles to be parked in the garage or covered by a tarp under a car port. Since there are no car ports in the subdivision, all unlicensed vehicles must be enclosed in the garage. Questions regarding this issue should be directed to the St. Charles County Code Office.

Parking in the Street

County zoning codes for residential areas require boats, trailers, campers, etc. to be located at least 12 feet from the curb. The Code Enforcement Office states that this is interpreted to mean parking trailer-type vehicles in the street is not permitted. Questions or specific concerns should be addressed to the County Code Enforcement Office. In addition, please make sure that you adhere to the subdivision's Covenants and Restrictions regarding boats, trailers, and campers. For example, these items must be stored in a garage, not a driveway or yard. If you have questions, please contact John Nohava (PCS board member) or e-mail your concerns to the web site.

From Your Architectural Control Committee

Its been a very busy year for your new ACC. Weve been assisting many residents & neighbors with their home improvement projects throughout the entire subdivision as well as helping to make sure that the association by-laws & use restrictions are followed and adhered to. With this in mind here is some helpful information that we wish you to be aware of:

Home Improvement Projects
Please remember to always check your copy of the bylaws before starting any project. If you do not have a copy, please feel free to contact any of your trustees for one. The rules are quite simple and in many cases contacting the ACC chair by phone first can point you in the right direction especially with many of the larger improvement projects requiring permits and inspections from St. Charles County.

Generally speaking, all projects are required to be submitted in writing to the ACC prior to the start. Discussions over the phone or messages left on answering machines do not count. We try to provide you with a response within thirty days after receiving your written request. In some cases, we can provide you with a verbal approval with the written approval to follow so you can get started right away.

Any project that is undertaken and/or completed without the consent of your association can/may result in a work stoppage and/or tear out.

Use Restrictions
All subdivisions have these restrictions for very good reasons. Primarily to ensure that the subdivision always looks its best and to prevent hazards, unsafe and unsightly conditions. Beautification and the upkeep of the subdivision are also addressed within these restrictions. The appearance of your subdivision is very important and directly relates to the value of your home.

We understand that these restrictions may feel invasive but they are a necessity and must be adhered to in all cases. Be aware of these restrictions and take a look around your home to see what you can do to improve the appearance. Please remember that trailers, boats, campers, construction materials and refuse are not allowed on or around your property at any time.

The erection of 6 tall privacy fences around your property lines is prohibited as well. If you have any questions about the application of any of the restrictions listed here or in the association bylaws, please drop the ACC a note and we will be happy to discuss the matter with you.

We appreciate all the encouragement we have received this year. This ACC was formed in February with new volunteers and it is a very important asset to our community. It has been a daunting task to address all of the correspondence and messages that we have received in a timely fashion not to mention establishing new procedures and protocol. Thank you to all the neighbors who have allowed us to respond to their requests with late night and early Saturday morning visits. With a subdivision comprised of over eleven hundred homes it does take some time to get back with everyone. Thank you for your understanding and patience. We will get back to everyone. Thank you for following the bylaws and use restrictions.

Its been our pleasure serving you as volunteers of this fine neighborhood.

Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!
