The display of a flag, or the location and construction of the supporting flagpole, shall comply with applicable zoning ordinances, easements, and setbacks of record.
A displayed flag, and the flagpole on which it is flown, shall be maintained in good condition at all times. Any flag that is deteriorated must be replaced or removed. Any flagpole that is structurally unsafe or deteriorated shall be repaired, replaced, or removed.
Only one flagpole will be allowed per Lot. A freestanding flagpole may not exceed 20 feet in height. Any freestanding flagpole must be located in either the front yard or backyard of a Lot, and there must be a distance of at least 6 feet between the flagpole, the property line and the edge of the public sidewalk closest to the flagpole.
Any flag flown or displayed on any flagpole may be no smaller than 3’x5′ and no larger than 4’x6′.
Any freestanding flagpole must be equipped to minimize halyard noise. The preferred method is through the use of an internal halyard system. Alternatively, swivel snap hooks must be covered or “Quiet Halyard” Flag snaps installed. Neighbor complaints of noisy halyards are a basis to have flagpole removed until Owner resolves the noise complaint.
The illumination of a flag is allowed so long as it does not create a disturbance to other residents in the community. Solar powered, pole mounted light fixtures are preferred as opposed to ground mounted light fixtures. Compliance with all municipal requirements for electrical ground mounted installations must be certified by Owner. Flag illumination may not shine into another dwelling. Neighbor complaints deemed valid by the prevailing committee, regarding flag illumination are a basis to prohibit further illumination until Owner resolves complaint.
All freestanding flagpole installations must receive prior written approval from the ARC Committee.
