Homeowners’ private property typically extends only a few feet beyond the sidewalks and patios as originally constructed by the developer. Some homeowners have elected to extend patios to the limit of their lot.
All other areas are common property. This does not however allow a person to cross any owner’s property that is private, such as between homes unless there is a clearly defined public path or sidewalk.
Green spaces and grass between backyards of homes are common property and may be used by everyone.
Consideration should be given to residents adjacent to these green spaces to allow them some measure of privacy.
Walking down the middle to the green space and keeping a respectable distance is a reasonable effort to allow others in their yards some privacy in our mostly unfenced and open community.
