TRAILERS VS. NO TRAILERS
There have been numerous complaints to the HOA Board over the past year or so about boats, trailers, campers, etc. The HOA has undertaken a study of this issue. We have consulted legal counsel, we met with one of the original founders of Royal Pines and we spoke with past board members of the HOA.
If you read the Covenants it clearly states “no trailers”. When you ask for an interpretation of this from legal counsel – no trailers, means no trailers of any kind. As you can image we have quite a bit of disagreements as to how this matter should be handled. Some have suggested we follow the letter of the law and have all trailers (including boat trailers and campers) removed from the community. Others say just leave it alone. However, there are some places in the neighborhood that have multiple boats, campers and 7 or more vehicles parked in their yard. This is disturbing to many in our community. So, we are seeking input from you. If you have a suggestion as to how we can handle this situation to the greater benefit of this situation please send us an email so we can include it in our decision making process, it would be appreciated.

WRONG WAY TRAFFIC ON RP BLVD
SCDOT responded to the letter sent by RPHOA
President, Karen Hardy, regarding wrong way
traffic on Royal Pines Blvd. The letter from the
SCDOT District Engineering Administrator states
that there have been no reported collisions on the roadway between 1/1/2015 and 12/31/2017. After
review of the intersection with Sams Point Road,
they have recommended that “One Way” signs be
installed above the Stop signs at that intersection.
“These signs will be installed by our maintenance
unit as their workload permits.”
Please continue to report any incidents of “Wrong Way” traffic.
PLEASE MOW THE BERM
SCDOT is supposed to mow the berms along the roadways in Royal Pines. It is notoriously bad about doing the job. With the large amount of rain this summer the grass just continues to grow. It will help the appearance of the Community if you will mow the front of your property. If there is a vacant lot next to you, it would be great if you could occasionally mow the berm on that lot also. THANKS FOR HELPING.
