Please note that at the last BOD meeting on 4/17/06 the following change was made under the USE AND ENJOYMENT OF LAKES section of the Rules & Regs of Danforth Lakes regarding fishing. The original verbiage read:
1. "Owners, or the family members, guests, invitees and tenants of Owners, shall be permitted to fish in the lakes. Notwithstanding the preceding, an Owner of the Lake Lot (i.e. all or portion of their rear or side property lines lies common with a portion of a lake), may access the lakes from that portion of their Lot that shares the common boundary."
THE VERBIAGE HAS NOW BEEN CHANGED AS OF 4/17/06 TO READ AS FOLLOWS:
1. "Owners, or the family members, guests, invitees and tenants of Owners, shall be permitted to fish in the lakes on common grounds other than such areas that border either deeded preserve or deeded lake lots."
2. "No persons shall encroach upon these areas (deeded preserve or deeded lake lots) without permission of the land owner. Nor shall any pets be permitted on these described preserve & lake lot areas. This does not apply to maintenance workers or those taking part in official duties. Notwithstanding the proceeding, an Owner of the lake lot (all or portion of their rear or side property lines lies common with a portion of a lake), may access the lakes from that portion of their lot that shares the common boundary."
We hope these changes will clarify the specific areas where fishing can and cannot be conducted. There are still plenty of other common ground areas that do not fall within deeded lot boundaries that you can enjoy. Many residents had paid a higher premium for such lots to enjoy the view or privacy and prefer not being able to look out and see people or pets out their back door.
Notice will be sent out via email as well to those on file, posted at the Clubhouse and distributed to all homes in the very near future.
Thanks you for your cooperation in making Danforth lakes a great place to live!
