“What and where are the Forest Ridge “Common Grounds?”
Common Grounds are those areas of Forest Ridge that are not within the property boundaries of the homes.They are found between some houses, in wooded areas behind groups of homes, and surrounding the entire neighborhood.There is a map of Forest Ridge on the website and in your Homeowner’s Book that shows Common Areas.If there is a grassy area or a wooded area beyond the boundary of your property but not within the boundary of an adjacent home, it is probably Common Ground.
“Who takes care of the grass and trees on the Common Grounds?”
The HOA is responsible for these areas.A lawn service is under contract to mow and edge Common Area lawns and a tree service is under contract to maintain trees in the Common Areas. The HOA typically organizes "volunteer days" about twice each year to pick up trash and debris in these areas. If you live adjacent to a common area or you are a regular walker, your neighbors would greatly appreciate it if you carried a trash bag with you and picked up any trash you see on your rounds.
