Homeowner’s Forum: Basketball hoops
Current CC&Rs forbid basketball hoops from being installed permanently in front of the house and require portable hoops to be stowed out-of-sight after use.
Some residents have suggested that revisions to these guidelines are warranted based on the fact that Somersett is a family community and that child obesity and obsessions with screens are a problem in our society. Making it easier for children to play basketball would have a positive influence on our children’s lives. Portable hoops are heavy and hard to maneuver. Suggestions include instituting a 48-hour rule or allowing the hoops to be placed a certain distance from the street.
Others argue that there are plenty of recreational opportunities for children in and around the Club. Relaxing the rules on basketball hoops would create a multitude of problems such as noise complaints and would be a disservice to the community.
