Lake Charlene Homeowners Association

Covenants and Restrictions Highlights

The LCHA Covenants and Restrictions are for the purpose of protecting the value and desirability of our neighborhood for the benefit of the homeowners and residents.  All homeowners and residents should be familiar with them; these highlights are not a substitute for reading the complete document thoroughly.

As an aid to homeowners and residents, we offer these highlights so that we can all be good neighbors. For more information, read the complete Covenants and Restrictions document or  contact the LCHA board.
