AS THE COVID 19 PANDEMIC CONTINUES, PLEASE FOLLOW COVID 19 RULES AND KEEP 6 FEET BETWEEN YOU AND PERSONS WHO ARE NOT FAMILY MEMBERS WHEN OUT WALKING OUR SIDEWALKS AND CONVERSING WITH NEIGHBORS. PLEASE OBSERVE OUR POSTED SPEED LIMIT OF 25 MPH AS MORE PEOPLE ARE OUT WALKING, JOGGING, AND BICYCLING. IT TAKES A SPLIT SECOND FOR A CHILD TO DART OFF OF A SIDEWALK INTO THE STREET. PLEASE SLOW DOWN WHEN DRIVING IN OUR NEIGHBORHOOD.
It is always good to remind ourselves of our neighborhood deed restrictions. You can find them by clicking Governing Documents on this website. You will also find under Governing Documents some of Lexington’s ordinances that cover noise, parking on the street, and street tree maintenance. Respect the rights of your neighbors to the peaceful enjoyment of their properties by complying with our deed restrictions and local ordinances.
