· Acting President John Owen and the Board of Trustees met to discuss potential
changes to the protective covenants for the Olympia Estates Subdivision. On page three of the protective covenants Acting
President John Owen and the Board of Trustees discussed the definition of “exotic animals”, and whether alpaca
and lamas are considered exotic animals.
· The Board of Trustees also discussed the number of animals allowed, and
the type of fence needed to contain the animals. The Board feels that 7 combined animals would be appropriate for lots 2.75
acres or larger. For lots 1.5 acres and smaller, only 2 head of horses would be allowable. Lots cannot
be combined to fence. Each lot must be fenced separately. Lots with animals must have some kind of fencing.
The Board also discussed
changing page 3 line (e) to remove the line that states shall have a minimum of 200 square feet of brick on the front of the
house. The Board would like to leave the size requirements of 1200 square feet on one level the same.

stay the same besides removing Glenn Bros., LLC or Henderson-Weir Agency, Inc.

vehicle is allowed per property.

to 24 months, turnkey and occupy. The Board would like to see a deadline added for homes to be built by 2017.
