Keep your Christmas Decor up to Code

The day after Thanksgiving, folks are often pulling holiday decorations from the attic. But before the inflatable Santas come start popping up on the front lawn, Treena Parish, our AECD Manager, wants to remind everyone of the Big Canoe Architectural Control Standards, which state:

Holiday Decorations or seasonal decorations shall consist of live natural materials or artificial materials with a natural appearance. Decorative accessories and trimmings (including holiday and seasonal decorations) intended for the enjoyment of the Property Owners shall be positioned so as not to offend the community or the immediate neighbors. All seasonal outdoor decorations are allowed for the applicable holiday period and must be removed within two weeks after the holiday.
Outdoor lighting approved for the winter holiday season is limited to miniature clear white bulbs displayed at the front entry, including front foundation shrubs and adjacent small trees less than six inches in circumference and less than ten feet tall are allowed.
Structures, decks or property lines shall not be delineated.
Flashing or running lights are not allowed. Icicle-like and other mimetic-shaped lights are not allowed.
