COVENANTS of the LAKERIDGE RUN ADDITION

The following abridged version of Lakeridge Run covenants (regulations) are provided to all home owners as a guide to their requirements and responsibilities. Please be aware that all residents and homeowners must comply with these covenants regardless of their membership status in LRNA. (For a complete copy, see the Cleveland County Clerk office in Norman, OK.)

1. No building shall be erected, placed or altered on any lot located in section I, II or III until after the building plans, specifications and plot plan showing the location of such building have been approved in writing as to conformity and harmony of external design with existing structures in said subdivision, and as to location of the building with respect to side lot and front building setback lines, by a majority of an architectural committee. If the committee, their representatives and successors, fail to approve or disapprove such design within thirty (30) days after plans have been submitted, and if no suit to enjoin the erection of such building, or making of such improvement has been commenced prior to the completion thereof, such approval shall not be required and this covenant shall be deemed to have been fully complied with.

2. All of the lots located in the subdivision shall be reserved exclusively for use as residential lots or residential building sites.

3. Only one single-family detached residence, not to exceed two (2) stories in height, and a private garage for not less than 2 cars nor for not more than 3 cars, shall be erected, altered, placed or permitted to remain on any residential plots.

4. No building shall be located on any lot nearer to the front lot line or nearer to the side street line than the minimum building setback line shown on the recorded plat. In any event, no building shall be located on any lot nearer than 20 feet to the front lot line or nearer than 15 feet to any side street line, and in all cases the distance between buildings shall be a minimum of 10 feet.

5. None of the lots in the heretofore described property shall be subdivided so that any lot in the described property shall contain an area smaller than 8,250 square feet, it being the intention of the provision and restriction to restrict the subdividing of larger lots into smaller lots where the smaller lot would be less than 75 feet wide at the front building line.

However, it is not the intention of this paragraph to exclude the temporary parking of passenger automobiles on any such portion of the driveway that is located in front of such front building or setback line of each lot. Moreover, no vehicle may be parked or stored in the side or back yard of any lot unless adequate screening has been provided to totally screen said vehicle from view of any street or other lot and where the architectural committee has approved the screening. Cedar, stockade, or masonry fencing materials shall automatically be approved in advance.

23. No billboards, advertising boards, or structures on any lot are allowed. This does not apply to the signs used for selling or leasing of such property, provided that the signs do not exceed 8 square feet in size.

24. These covenants run with the land and are binding on all parties and persons claiming under them until January 1, 2005 at which time, said covenants shall be automatically extended for successive periods of 10 years unless by a 2/3 vote of the then owners of the lots described agree to change the covenants in whole or in part.

25. Should any owner or tenant of any lot violate any of these restrictive covenants, after reasonable notice has been given, any owner of any lot may institute legal proceeding to enjoin, abate, or correct such violation, and the owner of the lost permitting the violation shall be responsible for attorney fees, court cost and any other necessary costs associated with said legal proceeding.
