New Search Capability

In the coming weeks and months, we will be adding a new search capability to our legal documents and neighborhood rules to enable property owners and residents to more easily find applicable sections that may help plan changes to or uses of your property.  This will include searches for topics such as:  fences, additions and updates to exterior portions of your home, signs, parking, solicitation, traffic, storm water, and more.  If you have a category that you will like us to help gather the relevant existing rules, please send an email to < Board [at] Bradford Hills Homes [dot] com.  Once our CONTACT PAGE is functioning correctly, you will be able to use that for all contact with your Board.
