Painting your house, fence or staining your driveway? ARC needs to see the colors you've picked to ensure aesthetics of the neighborhood. Other brands of paint are acceptable but must match the color palette.
*Remember, sidewalks will not be replaced or modified by the homeowner. Driveway aprons are HOA property and will not be replaced or modified by the homeowner unless the homeowner requests and receives approval from the ARC to widen the apron per this section.
Sidewalks and aprons are not to be stained or painted. ARC approval is required prior to staining or painting the driveway. Application of any coating other than a clear sealer must be per the color pallet at SLHOA site under ARC. Solid color 1 step epoxy or Sherwin Williams equivalent should be used. (See Paint Section 5.20)
*ARC also cautions home owners on the potential for driveway slip hazards after painting or staining.

FRONT PROPERTY EASEMENTS
The sidewalks, grass area and the driveway aprons next to the private roadways in front of each home is HOA property and part of the right-of-way easements to each property. The general cleaning and trimming maintenance is the responsibility of the homeowner. Since these areas are not homeowner owned, they are not to be changed without Board approval. If you are unsure of a change that you'd like to make, please contact the Board by sending an email to:
It is against Florida state law to block a pedestrian walk-way and may present a safety hazard for our owner and guest pedestrians. Parked vehicles are allowed in garages, on driveways, in the main park parking lot and street parking (not overnight).
There are areas in Sunset Lakes where Drainage Easements are designed as part of the storm water system. These drainage easements are required by the St. John's River Water Management District per our HOA permit. Some of these easements are found in the rear or side of a property. It is very important that the drainage easements be kept clear of yard debris, trash and any structures or plantings that may obstruct the flow of storm water.
GRAY WATER IRRIGATION
When a storm is close, it is wise to reduce or turn off home irrigation systems, as our property management company will do for the common areas. That will keep our grounds from being over saturated and unable to absorb the heavy rainwater that may follow.
