Frequently Asked Questions
Am I able to remove dead trees from my property?
Yes, the best thing to remember is the 3 “D’s” – Dead, Down, Diseased. Any trees that have fallen need to be cleaned up as to not become a fire hazard. Same thing with dead trees. Please remove them before they fall and present a bigger problem by falling on your neighbors property or falling on a structure. With diseased trees, please remove them to help fight the spread of disease to other trees but keep in mind there are only certain times of the year you should be removing diseased trees.
How does the building/placement application process work?
There is an application that needs to be filled out and submitted to the A&E committee for review and approval. This includes any kind of improvements from piers, new construction, stairs to lake, residing your home, really anything over $100.00 that happens outside of your home. The A&E committee meets every two weeks so your wait is relatively short to hear a reply. There is no fee through the association. Our approval is then given to the Town of Rome for them to release their permits. The application can be found to the right under the downloads tab.
