Prior Approval is Always Needed for Variances

Please be aware that you may not alter the exterior look of your home without first filling out a variance request. AECC approval is needed prior to doing anyhome repair projects i.e. new windows, siding, a new roof or front door, painting (you must use association approved colors), new deck, fence, landscaping…etc.

All changes/updates must be submitted in writing and approved by the AECC (Architectural/Environmental Control Committee). All exterior home materials such as vinyl, windows, paint color, lighting, etc. should fall within the AECC guidelines or have an approved variance on fi le. Download a request form and review the Timbers Rules and Regulations on our website.

NOTE: White is NOT an approved color in any section of the Timbers, except for original replacement of white gutter and downspout on sections 3 & 4. Remember, all requests for variances must be submitted and approved by the AECC before you start, a process that can take several weeks.

Timbers Trash Policies & Reminders

You must call American Disposal Services to schedule disposal
of all heavy or large items including but not limited to
appliances and furniture. There may be a disposal fee required
as the HOA does not cover this cost. Certain items such as
tires, paint cans and electronics will not be picked up. To
arrange for a pick up of any large items call 571-292-5510.

• Remember to place trash in heavy duty trash bags or a trash
can. Do not place loose items in open boxes or plastic bags.

• Trash must be placed in front of your individual home - not
in common areas. Those residents in violation are now
receiving fines.

• Residents must remove their trash containers from the front
of their house within 24 hours after trash pick-up.

• There will be no make-up schedule for missed service due
to weather. Trash, recycling, and yard debris collections will
resume on the next regularly scheduled service day.

Yard Debris: American Disposal will not be collecting yard
debris after December 31.

• Set recycled trash out only on Thursday mornings. You
must label your trash can, lid, and recycle container with
your house number clearly marked.
