There are hundreds of neighborhoods in our region and most of them are regulated by some sort of Home Owners Association. Those regulations generally include rules about lawns, exposed trash and exterior changes but some HOA covenants can be very restrictive according to residents. Added to the growing number of neighborhood disputes is a movement by more and more citizens to make their homes and lawns more energy efficient, but installing a solar panel or changing grass into natural habitat can run afoul of neighborhood rules. We invite experts on HOAs and how they work to join us and help us all understand neighborhood covenants and how they may change as cities become greener.
