CC&R's - Is that a 60's Rock Band?
3.    Satellite Dish Placement  "It came out of the Sky"  ARB approval is required for all Satellite Dish Placements.  Please note that your dish must be located so as not to be visible from the street, and preferably screened in such a way as not to be visible to your adjoining neighbors. (Exception to visible from street is River Birch Park residents)
4.    Pets not on leash, running loose - "Early in the evening, just about supper time"
      THIS INCLUDES CATS.  Dogs and cats should not be allowed to roam freely.  Not everyone chooses to have a pet, and do not want a pet visiting, no matter how well behaved or cute.  Your pet is a nuisance if it chooses to use your neighbor's yard, or the mailbox post down the street, for the pee pee spot.  Cats do not have the immunity idol in this area.  CATS SHOULD REMAIN CONFINED to your yard OR ON A LEASH AS WELL.  Please do not leave your garage door open so your pets may come and go at will.
Mailbox needs repair or painting  ??Rooster hits the washboard, and people just got                                                                    to smile??
            Complete mailbox information, including contact information for paint, repair, replacement or numbering is available at:  www.emeraldmountainhoa.org.
"You know the night time, oh, is the right time"
"Come on and drive me crazy??
Noise complaints, specifically barking dogs, rank among the top five problems that come up in our neighborhood and they are the most difficult problems to address.  These type complaints tend to be in the eyes, or in this case, the ears of the beholder.  Zero tolerant neighbors may deem all sounds, real or imagined, as offensive.  Insensitive pet owners may fail to see, or refuse to recognize, how their occasional barking dog could annoy their neighbor.  What usually hits right in the middle of this issue is the homeowner controls the barking while at home, but when at work or away for the evening, the dogs are left unattended and bark nonstop until the return of the owner.  Who wants to sit on their patio in the evening and the dog next door is at the fence, privacy or not, and barks non-stop? 
We ask that you, as a neighbor and resident, make an attempt to resolve this complaint with your neighbor prior to asking for intervention by the HOA/PM.  We ask you, pet owner, to communicate with your neighbors about your pet.
Everyone annoys or is annoyed by someone about something sometime.  Some residents file nuisance complaints simply because they don't like their neighbors and find everything they do, including breathing and taking up space, annoying.  These are problems the homeowners should resolve themselves.  The HOA/PM will not handle these problems for you.   While the HOA/PM will enforce nuisance complaints, the homeowners have a responsibility to attempt to resolve these type complaints on their own as well.
Covenant Enforcement
"Things got bad, things got worse"
                  "Oh Lord, I'm stuck in Lodi again"
Adherence to the provisions of our covenants is not optional. We, the HOA Management Board, and Property Manager, (HOA/PM) believe that the application of the covenants is equally as important as the rule itself.  When addressing covenant violations, the first and foremost fact considered is the intent.  What is the intent of the rule?  What is the intent of the homeowner?  Is the homeowner new and unaware of the covenant?  Is this the first time it has been violated?  Is there an acceptable reason for the homeowner not following the covenant?  Or...do they routinely and continuously violate the covenant?
                                Common Sense, Reasonableness and Intent
                                "I Put a Spell on You"
The HOA/PM first looks for the good, not the bad, in the situation.  "Reasonable" is difficult to define.  All parties to a violation believe they are reasonable and the other party is not.  We trust first that an honest mistake may have been made and that the violation was not intentional.  Believe me, the bad will quickly surface and can hardly be declared a mistake when bad acts are repeated over and over again.  When this occurs, we message that these actions have specific consequences.  And, we follow-through with the enforcement.
"Up Around the Bend"
When you chose to move into Emerald Mountain, consider what appealed to you.  What was it about Emerald Mountain that made you decide to make this your home?  There is no doubt that if we were all in one place, we would have many, many different answers to this question.  In order to ensure that all that is desirable about Emerald Mountain remains intact, it is essential to have consistent, fair, and thorough enforcement of the Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions.  Our goal is to attract people who want to enjoy and preserve our wonderful neighborhood.  We, the HOA/PM are committed to being reasonable, flexible and more than willing to work with you to satisfy the intent of the CC&R's of Emerald Mountain.
"There's a place up ahead and
I'm going just as fast as my feet can fly
Come away, come away if you're going,
Leave the sinking ship behind.

Come on the rising wind,
We're going up to Emerald Mountain"

Ooh!               Do do
