We have a specific rule that no potted plants may be placed on any concrete area of the HOA without an approved change request. We have this rule because owners were placing pots that restricted access on walkways, essentially creating a trip hazard. Two photos are attached for reference. Does anyone else have this type of issue?

Well, we have the same rule for our common area hallways (high rise) an exterior walkways. Residents follow this rule without problems. Are the residents in your HOA ignoring the rule? Is your HOA detached homes, or?

A main reason for the rule is the fire marshall probation against such items that might hinder their (& EMTs') work.

We don't have an issue, but if it's a rule,why not send the homeowner a friendly reminder letter with a copy of the photos and ask him/her to relocate them? If that doesn't work, try a stronger letter with a warning of possible penalties for non comp!lance.

Still no response? Follow your policy and see what happens. Document everything you do and give the owner a chance to come before the board to explain him/herself..
