1. This Policy is put into effect to maintain the elegance of the Nottingham Forest landscape and avoid the unsightly appearance of satellite dishes from the street.
2. This policy revises the current Nottingham Forest Bylaws, Plats and Declarations of Restrictions for the First Plat through the Thirteenth Plat, except the Eighth Plat which states, in part:
9. Buildings or Uses Other Than for Residential Purposes. – Noxious Activities.
(c) No television or radio antenna or basketball goal shall be placed on the exterior of
any structure or constructed separately.
The Plats and Declarations for the Eighth Plat states:
3. No television, radio, citizens’ band, short wave or other antenna, satellite dish, solar panel, clothes line or pole, or other unsightly projection shall be attached to the exterior of any residence or erected in any yard. Should any part or all of the restriction set forth in the preceding sentence be held by a court of competent jurisdiction to be unenforceable because it violates the First Amendment or any other provision of the United States Constitution, the Architectural Committee shall have the right to establish rules and regulations regarding the location, size, landscaping and other aesthetic aspects of such projections so as to reasonably control the impact of such projections on the neighborhood and any such rules and regulations shall be binding upon all of the Lots.
STATEMENT OF POLICY:
1. The Nottingham Forest Homes Association recognizes our deed restrictions did not
allow satellite dishes to be mounted anywhere in our subdivision. This decision was made
when satellite dishes were very large and would have been offensive to the beauty of our
neighborhood. However, the Board has recognized that changes in technology have resulted
in much smaller dishes. Therefore, the Board has changed the policy regarding satellite
dishes. We are allowing the current, smaller dishes in Nottingham Forest, but they must be
mounted on homes in the back so as not to be visible from the street. If you have any
questions about this change in policy, please contact a board member.
