Gas Lights

Lamp Post Lighting Guidelines


As the only source of light for our neighborhood, we request that the Gas lights on each lot remain lit at all times.  Piedmont Natural Gas will relight the fixture for you at no cost. Call Customer Service @ 1-800-752-7504 to schedule an appointment or they will supply mantles free of charge if you wish to light it yourself.  Make sure you tell them you have a Batson Home. They won't change it for you if you have any plants at the base of your gas lamp.  

Approved electric conversion kits for Gas lights are available.  http://www.gaslightconversions.com/.  

 The electric lights should be lit dusk-to-dawn.

Pools
Above-ground swimming pools are not allowed in the neighborhood. Inground pools must have approved Architectural Form before any work begins.

Common Ground Use
Use of common ground for staging must be requested on the Architectural Change Request Form.  There is a $500.00 deposit to insure the common ground is returned to the same condition as it was before the project started.  Homeowners or their contractors cannot place and or store dirt, rock or any part of the project on common ground.

Prior to the project, the Board will take pictures of the area that will be used by the Homeowner to show the condition of the common ground prior to use.  Upon completion of the project, the Board will check the condition of the common ground and, should there be no need to repair the common ground, the deposit will be returned.  Should repairs need to be made, pictures should be taken to show damage done.  Once repairs are accomplished, the remainder of the deposit will be returned or an invoice will be sent to the homeowner for the additional cost.
