RLHOA Covenants & Rules

The Covenants are designed to ensure that our community maintains its high standards of design and aesthetic appearance and, in turn, ensures the highest property evaluation for our investment.  Read the complete document above on this page for more detail. If in doubt, contact a Board member. Here are some general covenant rules for current homeowners to keep in mind:

The homeowners in Royal Links care about their lawns and upkeep. Kris

  1. Property
    1. Fences, gazebos, and additions need the Architectural Committee approval prior to construction.
    2. Maintain your lawn and overall yard appearance.  View the City of Bloomington mowing ordinance.
    3. Outdoor equipment should be screened from your neighbor.
    4. No above ground swimming pools, outbuildings, clotheslines or poles permitted.
    5. Campers, boats, RV and similar vehicles cannot be stored on your property except within enclosed garages.
    6. Basketball Hoops – not allowed in front or corner side yard and portable goals to be stored inside when not in use.
    7. Keep dogs from running loose outside of your property.

  2. Garbage and Trash (full details on city trash and recycle on the City Links page)
    1. Garbage and recycle bins to be stored inside of garages until 5 pm night before collection.
    2. No burning of trash.
    3. Trash Pick Up – Monday mornings.
    4. Recycle Pick Up – Every other Monday.

  3. The Lake
    1. The lake is intended to be an amenity solely for the enjoyment of the lots abutting the lake.
    2. Please refrain from throwing edging rocks in the lake.

  4. Homeowner Reminders
  5. Garbage/Recycle Totes:  The covenants require all trash and garbage be screened from view except for designated collection days. 
  6. Empty Lots:  Please do not dump grass clippings, dead plants, trash or any others items on empty lots.  This decreases the attractiveness of our neighborhood and the lot itself that someone is trying to sell. 
  7. Portable Basketball Hoops: These are to be put away every evening.
  8. Commercial Vehicles:  Shall be stored in garage with garage doors closed.
