QUESTION:  We’re planning on offering our Springs house for sale after school is out. When the house is listed for sale, can we place multiple Open House and/or House For Sale signs on the marquee island on Granite Spring and at the end of our street? 

ANSWER: No, as stated in our current CCRs and by the Stone Oak POA governing documents addressing signs:

Article XI
Signs, Flags, and Flagpoles

No signs, banners, or pennants of any kind shall be displayed to the public view on any single-family residential Lot except one (1) professional sign of not more than six (6) square feet advertising the property for sale or rent. Signs used by the Declarant or original home builder(s) to advertise the property during the construction and sales period shall be permitted, if approved as to design and location by the ARC. Signs advertising subcontractors or suppliers are specifically prohibited. The sign may state only the name and phone number of the seller and/or their agent. Signs indicating that property is distressed or referencing foreclosure or bankruptcy are specifically prohibited… Except for signs advertising a Lot for sale and adhering to the standards of this Article, all signs within the Properties shall be subject to the prior written approval of the ARC.

Stone Oak POA rules for Signs: “Real Estate Signs & Open House Signs:  The ARC permits one open house sign to be placed at the neighborhood monument at the neighborhood entry during the hours of the open houseNO balloons, lights, pinwheels, ribbons, streamers, or other items to attract attention are permitted.  Signs that are handwritten, are generic in nature (red signs with arrows), directional signs, etc will be removed and are subject to a retrieval fee.  Any signs placed in thoroughfare medians will be removed.”


These periodic CCR discussion topics intend to remind residents of The Springs of the Covenants, Conditions, and Restrictions (CCR’s) that apply to all Springs residents solely by our election to live in this community. The purpose of the CCR’s is to maintain specific standards for the good of us all, as articulated in their definition:

“THE SPRINGS AT STONE OAK is encumbered by these Restrictive Covenants for the following reasons: to seek to achieve the best and highest use and most appropriate development of the property; to protect lot owners against improper use of surrounding lots; to preserve so far as practical the natural beauty of the property; to guard against the erection of poorly designed or proportioned structures of improper or unsuitable materials; to encourage and secure the erection of attractive improvements on each lot with appropriate locations; and to secure and maintain proper setbacks from streets and adequate free space.”

If you are a Springs resident who has misplaced your copy of the CCR’s, or are a new resident who wasn’t provided a copy by the previous owners or your realtor, you can view (and download in Adobe Reader [.pdf] format) the complete Springs CCR’s and By-Laws at the Consolidated Bylaws and CCRs section of this website, located in the Pages & Links tab.
