The FIA provides a covenant advisor to assist you in understanding your covenants and will advise residents when there are violations such as trash cans left on the street or tall weeds growing in yards. The FIA has compiled a document "FIA Covenant Considerations" that may be helpful. The point of the covenants is to help Foxridge maintain a harmonious and attractive appearance throughout the neighborhood.
