    When they inspect for specific violations, for example trash cans being left out, will they also inspect for other obvious violations? For example, there are 4 houses that I pass on my walk that still have wreathes on their doors. If they are inspecting for garbage cans and see them, will they also send a violation about the Xmas decorations still being up? Or does someone have to actually complain about them? Just curious. (the appearance of the wreathes don't bother me, just that people arent following the rules and I am using it as an example.) TIA

    My wreath is still up but I removed the red bow and pinecones from it and I'll will be replacing it soon with another green wreath. It's never been an issue that I'm aware of.

    I would be more concerned with the trashcans and the obvious maintenance issues. Sometimes what you don't see is more irksome, such as a townhouse neighbor storing their trash bin on their deck and you have to see it and smell it all the time. The inspectors would miss something like that unless they walk behind the houses.

    First - The vast majority of violations are reported by fellow neighbors. In the past year, the HOA did begin conducting street sweeps, as the community approached 20 years of existence.
    As for wreaths, many people will put up seasonal ones, as KTdid apparently does. We also will put up occasional themed wreaths. They are perfectly fine as long as they are seasonal/topical.

    I just meant if they were "sweeping" the neighborhood , which I actually thought was a regular occurrence, for something specific, and they noticed some other violations, would it would be noted.
    I personally don't care about a wreath on a door, just used it as an example and should have been specific in saying that they are clearly Xmas with red bows and pine cones. I do care that people follow rules. In the TH area that I live in, nothing seems to be enforced. (garbage pails out on the street for days, garbage pails in driveways all week or in the portico which puzzles me beyond belief, double parking in driveways so the sidewalk is blocked, corner homes parking sideways in the apron of the driveway) just to name a few. :(

    I totally understand that the staffs time is also limited. Just was curious how things work. Thank you for the info T8.

    PS -KT, growing up we did the same thing. We kept the wreath on the door as long as it was alive. Mom used to put hearts for V-day and silky flowers for spring. I would do the same but the wind whips around my corner so bad that we had to take the wreath down.
