Due to its setback and walkway, the Bridgeport condo style is unique at Barclay Park in that a narrow strip of land lines the sidewalk leading to the front door of the unit. The original site plan specifies graded soil with stone. Co-owners may landscape this area personally, however, provided they use certain types of plants and flowers, as specified in this landscaping guideline. Decorative pots and other ornamental devices along the walkway are strictly prohibited (reserved for porches only).
Bridgeport co-owners who wish to landscape this area must assume the responsibility of maintaining what they plant – in conformance with guidelines below (or, if altered, only pursuant to written Alteration Request and written approval).
If the area is not properly cared for by the co-owner, the Association may return the area to its original condition at the expense of the co-owner found to be neglectful. Likewise, any costs associated with the maintenance and/or removal of planted items or any subsequent damage to the premises can also be charged-back in accordance with Article VI, Section 3 (c) of the Bylaws.
