Farmington Square Homeowner Association
May 2021

Board Responsibilities
The board works to maintain the beauty of the neighborhood and maximize home values for the benefit of everyone in the subdivision. Responsibilities include collecting and managing association dues, maintaining commons areas, making capital improvements to shared assets and common properties, and enforcing covenants and bylaws.

If you or someone you know in our beautiful subdivision is interested in getting involved, please let us know!

Pet Waste and Leashes
Please keep our neighborhood clean by picking up after your pets. We appreciate everyone respecting the property of your neighbors by cleaning your your pet's waste.
Also, while walking your pet through the neighborhood, a leash must be used, for everyone's safety.
Yard Maintenance
To maintain curb appeal and comply with neighborhood and City ordinances, please remember to keep grass cut to 6 inches or less, trim bushes and shrubs, and remove weeds from flower beds and from between driveway and sidewalk cracks.
If you do not keep up on your landscaping responsibilities, you may receive a letter from the HOA. Further action with the city may result if action is not taken.

Association Dues
Per the FSHOA Bylaws, annual dues must be received by February 28 each year to avoid late charges. There are a few residents who have not paid their 2021 dues. Final letters will be sent and if payment is not received by May 31st, there will be a lien put on your property.

Friendly Reminders for the Upcoming Summer Months
Home Improvements and FSHOA Approval
It is always great to see all the wonderful home improvements throughout our neighborhood!  Please remember that our FSHOA has bylaws and covenants that were established to help maintain the beauty of our neighborhood and maximize home values for the benefit of everyone in the subdivision. One of the Board’s roles is to enforce these bylaws and we are grateful to you for your assistance.

Before beginning any outside projects, please review the bylaws and covenants at and contact the board for approval. This helps us maintain consistency throughout the subdivision and eliminates controversial situations. Questions and requests to make changes to the outside of your home or property should be emailed to We appreciate your understanding and cooperation.
Landscaping Parameters
As you plant trees and shrubbery, please plant within your property lines and allow space for growth and maintenance between your neighbors and the City easement. For your safety, Michigan law requires that all utility lines be flagged before beginning an excavation project. Residents are encouraged to contact Miss Dig, a company that offers free services to fulfill your legal requirement and avoid costly fines.

Curb Appeal
While there are not many home offenders, it is worth noting holiday decorations. Please keep up with your holiday decorations. It is May, so if there are Christmas decorations/lights on your home, please remove them.

Contractor's List
Do you need help finding a contractor? There is a neighbor recommended (and not recommended) contractor list on the website at Please help us keep this list up to date by sending names and contact information of qualified contractors that you recommend (or don’t recommend) to our address.

Speed Limit – 25 MPH
For the safety and courtesy of your neighbors and children, please do not drive faster than 25 mph in our subdivision. Thank you!

Upcoming Events
The neighborhood garage sale flyer went out last week and the upcoming food truck/social Friday schedule went out earlier this evening.
