Saratoga Woods Sign Policy
Posted on Jan 14th, 2021

Saratoga Woods Sign Policy 
 
Without restating the obvious, 2020 was a year we will not soon forget. Thanks to the global COVID pandemic, our normal routine has been disrupted in multiple ways, specifically schooling for children and work for many adults. In recognition and respect for the drastic changes caused by COVID, the Saratoga Woods HOA (SWHA) board temporarily relaxed its enforcement of the Sign provision of Saratoga Woods’ Declaration of Codes, Covenants and Restrictions (CCRs) as stated below in Section 9 of the CCRs:
 
Section 9. Signs. No sign for advertising or for any other purpose shall be displayed on any lot or on a building or on a structure on any lot, except for one sign advertising the sale or rent thereof, which shall not be greater than nine square feet; provided, however, Developer shall have the right to (i) erect larger signs, (ii) place signs on lots designating the lot number of the lots, and (iii) following the sale of a lot, place signs on such lot indicating the name of the purchaser of that lot. This restriction shall not prohibit placement of occupant name signs and lot numbers as allowed by applicable zoning regulations.
 
Despite this clear guidance, the SWHA board has not acted on signs erected during the past year regarding students being missed by their teachers, graduation announcements, COVID- related messaging, etc. Prior to and through the November election period, we saw quite a few political yard signs, which are supported by Metro codes as acceptable with certain provisions.

While written and recorded during the development of Saratoga Woods in the early 1990’s, the CCRs remain the guiding document for decisions that impact our greater community. As we begin a new and hopefully better year, the board has reached a decision that effective January 1, 2021, we will again be enforcing Section 9 of the CCRs regarding Signs. Enforcement will apply to all signs of a temporary nature, including but not limited to signs promoting local events, contractor services, political endorsements outside of election season, and school activities. We thank you for your cooperation and understanding and for proactively removing any such signs.
