Anyone still interested in Tree removal?
by Karen_Zab on May 10th, 2010


FYI in case anyone else in the neighborhood is still interested...

We found a tree & landscape company, Arbor Barbers, who are going to provide the time, labor and equipment to remove the oak tree that is located too close to our home in return for the tree. It's a good deal for us because we are putting a deck in same spot so the tree had to come down one way or another.

If interested give Mike a call at 299-2330. Not the optimal time of the year to transplant trees but fall will be here before you know it!

Karen -

Rose and I want to do the same thing with the oak tree in our front yard. We also want to put a deck out front.

When are you having Mike come out?

If you live in Mueller and want to do a deck in the front, be sure to check the HOA (?) rules.

We can do most anything we like inside and in the back, as I understand, but the outside of the house, particularly the front, requires approval for changes, even ones I wouldn't have thought.

========================================
Here's the reference on modifying our homes: http://www.muelleraustinonline.com/CommDirectory/CommDocs/Mueller_Mixed-Use_Rules_and_Regulations_8-5-09.pdf

We've used the process a few times and it's relatively fast & painless. Requires Modification Form $10.00 sent to the committee.

H. ARCHITECTURAL CONTROL; WORK UPON RESIDENCES, RESIDENTIAL LOTS,
MIXED‐USE COMMON AREA AND AREAS OF COMMON RESPONSIBILITY
H‐1. Residential Modification Guidelines. As set forth in the Mueller Design Book, Mueller
welcomes diversity and individuality in housing types and aesthetics. A Modification
Committee is established by the Covenants to review Owners’ requests for alterations,
decoration or modifications to existing improvements. Residential Modification
Guidelines are available from the Community Manager.
H‐2. Exteriors. With written approval of the Reviewer an owner may change, remodel, affix
decorations/art, or improve any exterior surface or component of the improvements
constructed upon a Residential Lot, or change the outside appearance of the
improvements constructed upon a Residential Lot. Reasonable Holiday decorations do
not need prior approval and are allowed up to 30 days prior to the Holiday or religious
observance and 14 days thereafter.
H‐3. Prohibited Acts. In addition to the foregoing, a person may not:
a. Post signs, notices, or advertisements on the Mixed‐Use Common Area or other
Areas of Common Responsibility.
b. Place decorations on the Mixed‐Use Common Area or other Areas of Common
Responsibility, provided that decorations for a party or event may be authorized
by the Community Manager.
H‐4. Reviewer Approval. To obtain the Reviewer’s written consent for an alteration or
modification, an Owner must comply with the architectural control requirements of the
Master Covenant. An applicant may not rely on verbal assurances of an Association
director or officer or the Community Manager. If approval is obtained, the Owner must
maintain the approved item in a good and attractive condition. Owners should
reference the Residential Modification Guidelines for specific information.

As far as i know...its not true that you can do anything in the back or whatever...

inside the house its probably pretty free form... but..

Changes too :

1> The facade.
2> The outer property

Will at least require you to check if you need permission...

It is important to remember that they are concerned with drainage and other issues as well as purely visual aspects...also they technically possess the power to ask you to remove the modifications at your own expense..

I would be more then happy if this is not the case as we are currently asking permission for backyard mods and would be more then happy if we don't need it...so would be happy to be corrected -- but thats the position as I understand it...

thanks
Ezra.

Take a look at the docs attached to previous note. Covers just about anything you can think to do on your lot or house exterior. There are exceptions noted by asterisks on request form

The POA has developed a specific guidance document for landscape modifications. While I find references to it, I cannot find a working link to the document on the old threads. It addresses common landscape changes that do NOT require approval. Anyone have a copy around they can attach?

Let's see if this works ...
Note, by the way, that the Do Not Plant List is divided into two groups. The first group contains invasive plants that are prohibited (kudzu, running bamboo, English ivy). The second group contains plants that are not recommended because either they don't reflect the"original design intent" of Mueller, or because they don't grow that well in Austin (Italian cypress, boxwoods, azaleas). And 80% of your plants must be from the recommended list.

We've noticed that several people have replaced the grass between their sidewalk and the street with gravel and paving stones. Did this require written approval?
