WELCOME to Tatum Village. We are glad you chose to live here.  This guide should familiarize you with Tatum Village and its Homeowner Association (HOA).  The HOA contracts with a professional property management company to keep our affairs in order.  The management company, Planned Development Services, Inc. (PDS) is the contact point for communication with all homeowners.  Please contact it for information regarding gate codes, website registration, keys for the swimming pool, tennis courts, etc.   Contact: Vern Carrillo   E-mail:  vern@pdsaz.com

               Planned Development Services, Inc. (PDS)    Phone:  (623) 877-1396

                 Peoria, AZ 85381                                                        

COVENANTS, CONDITIONS & RESTRICTIONS (CC&R’S):  The HOA is officially governed by the CC&Rs.  All homeowners agreed to abide by them when they purchased their home.  If you need a copy of the CC&Rs or have a question regarding them, contact the management company or access the website, www.tatumvillage.com. (Select "Community" tab).

Tatum Village is a sub-association of Tatum Ranch Community Association (TRCA).  Accordingly, the TRCA “Guidelines for Community Living” as revised, provide the controlling standards for Tatum Village. Tatum Village has incorporated its Guidelines into the Tatum Ranch Guidelines.  In most cases the Tatum Village addition to the Tatum Ranch Guideline adds additional restrictions for this unique community. For example, since The Tatum Village HOA is responsible for all landscaping, the Tatum Ranch guidelines are not applicable to each homeowner, but to the Tatum Village HOA. However, the Landscape Maintenance Guideline incorporates the Tatum Village requirement for its homeowners.


What does the HOA Own?

The HOA owns Common Areas of real property within the perimeter fence and gates of Tatum Village. The HOA also owns the area outside of the front wall and gates adjoining Tatum Blvd.

What are the responsibilities of/and services provided by the HOA? 

The HOA is responsible for the maintenance and repair of the Common Areas, including the swimming pool, spa, structures at the swimming pool, tennis courts, roads, sidewalks, driveways, perimeter walls, and all landscape maintenance and irrigation outside of each home and within the patios and atriums of individual homes.  Additionally, the HOA is responsible for the sewer lines from the foundation of each home to the street. The HOA establishes an annual budget and sets sufficient funds aside in a reserve account for long term maintenance and replacement costs. The HOA collects an assessment from each Member to pay for maintenance and other HOA expenses. The HOA contracts with a property manager take care of day-to-day management of the HOA. 

Are there any restrictions on what I may do with my yard? 

Yes, The CC&Rs require that the HOA is responsible for all landscape management in the common area, on individual lots, atriums and patios, and for repair of sidewalks and driveways.  No landscaping or landscape maintenance by any individual resident is allowed.  See the Landscape Maintenance topic in these guidelines.

Additionally, the resident may not use any of the common area adjoining his/her lot without permission of the Board of Directors. This includes placement of stepping stones, pavers, rocks or pavers around sidewalks, driveways or at the back gate of the patio.

Are there any restrictions on what I may do with my house? 

Yes. The CC&Rs and these “Guidelines for Community Living” contain rules and regulations that define what you may do.  The CC&Rs also define the circumstances when Architectural Committee approval is required before owners may make changes to homes. 

The Architectural Committee shall approve or disapprove a request within 45 days of the receipt of the application. Failure of the Committee to approve or disapprove within 45 days shall waive the approval requirement. 

NO EXTERIOR CHANGES MAY BE STARTED WITHOUT PRIOR APPROVAL OF THE ARCHITECTURAL COMMITTEE UNLESS EXPRESSLY STATED IN THESE GUIDELINES. MEMBERS MAY BE SUBJECT TO A MONETARY PENALTY FOR COMMENCING WORK WITHOUT ARCHITECTURAL COMMITTEE APPROVAL. 

These guidelines are to be used by the residents of Tatum Village when making improvements to their homes.  Where required, an application must be filed with the Tatum Village Architectural Committee for approval prior to making the improvement.  Fill-in on-line Application forms are on the website www.tatumvillage.com or application forms may be requested from PDS.  Applications filed from the fill in on-line form are automatically submitted to the management company and the Architectural Committee.  Manual forms should be sent to the management company or filed with the chairman of the Architectural Committee.

In some situations (as noted in each guideline) an application to the Tatum Ranch Architectural Committee for approval is required after approval from Tatum Village is received.  Application forms are available on the TRCA website at www.tatumranch.org, at the TRCA Administrative Office, or by mail, upon request. 

What Constitutes the Architectural Committee? 

The Architectural Committee is composed of five appointed members, the chairman being a member of the Board of Directors as required by Arizona law. Decisions by the Architectural Committee are subject to appeal to the Board of Directors, who may elect to uphold or modify the decision of the Architectural Committee. The Board of Directors’ decision is final. 

 

The following guidelines are identified as follows:

· TR – signifies the Tatum Ranch Guidelines, in black.

· TV – signifies the Tatum Village Guidelines, in blue

· TV – signifies the Tatum Village Guideline that is unique to Tatum Village and does not have any relationship with the Tatum Ranch Guideline

If unpainted, the metal roof should be black, brown or bronze color. If painted, the metal roof color should match the color of the house roof tile, the body or trim color. 

Sidewalls of gazebos may remain in the natural wood finish or be stuccoed and painted to match the body color of the house. If the gazebo support structure is metal and unpainted, the color should be black, brown or bronze color. If the gazebo support structure is painted, the color should match the color of the painted roof or the body color of the house.

TV 21A: LANDSCAPING POLICY AND REQUESTING MAINTENANCE (Plants, Rocks & Gravel): 

LANDSCAPING:  All landscaping decisions are the responsibility of the HOA as directed by its Board of Directors. The maintenance standard for landscaping is established by the Board and applies to all landscaping, including maintenance of any plant or material for which the homeowner has paid.  The Board and the HOA contracted landscape company continually assess the health and hazard potential of the landscaping.  If it is determined that there is questionable sustainability, personal hazard or possible structural damage to property, the tree/bush/plant/cactus will be removed.  The HOA contracted landscaper performs all plant additions, removals, replacements and maintenance, including pruning/trimming, watering, cleanup and fertilizing.  Homeowners are restricted from performing plant maintenance.  Residents may not make requests to the on-site maintenance crews.

The Board has appointed a Landscape Committee to assist it and homeowners in landscaping issues.  Homeowners need to contact committee members for help and information. The contracted landscapers cannot act upon direct requests from any individual homeowner. Landscaping requests must be submitted using the Landscape Request Form on the Tatum Village website:   www.tatumvillage.com.   From the website home page, select "Request Forms", then "Landscape Maintenance Request". This request, when submitted, goes directly to designated Board and committee members who respond, either approving or disapproving the request. Homeowners may request the following in regards to their front lot, patio and atrium area:

1. All plant selections will be limited to plants on the Tatum Village Plant list.

2. At his/her expense, the removal and/or replacement of a viable plant/tree/bush/cactus. Upon installation, the plant is owned and maintained by the Association.

a. a plant must exist, or have existed, in the location of the proposed replacement. 

b. if consultation with the Association’s contracted landscaper requires payment outside the contract, this payment will be at the homeowner’s expense.

c. the irrigation system must have sufficient capacity to support the plant.

d. plant replacements cannot result in an undue burden to the HOA, including impact to: 1) future water usage costs; 2) on-going maintenance or replacement costs and; 3) appropriateness of the location for plant survival. e. all landscape plantings must be obtained from and installed by the HOA’s contracted landscaper.

 As part of landscaping maintenance, the HOA contracted landscaper is responsible for landscaping maintenance within the homeowner's patio/atrium, including debris cleanup using leaf blowers.  Homeowners may request to restrict the landscapers from performing the cleanup/blowing function on their patio, via the Landscape Request form on the Tatum Village website:  www.tatumvillage.com.   From the website home page, select "Request Forms", then "Landscape Maintenance Request".

Any expenses being incurred by the homeowner must be paid to the HOA contracted landscaper per the payment terms established by same. Normally, planting projects are done in March and November and rock work projects are done in January and July.

TV 21B:  LANDSCAPING FAQ

VILLAGE LANDSCAPING FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:

1.         As a homeowner, what areas am I responsible for landscaping?
A.        The Tatum Village CCRs establish the Association is responsible for all landscaping and related maintenance in all areas outside the exterior walls    of the home.  However, homeowners under a set of guidelines established in the Tatum Village Landscaping policy may make requests impacting their front lots, patio and atriums.  It is the intent of the Association to engage with homeowners to strike a balance between homeowner desires and the on-going landscaping cost incurred by the entire association.

2.         What defines my front lot?
A.        As a general rule, the homeowner's front lot is the portion of the land between the walls of the residential unit and the street curb.  Specific marks are notched into the street curb that align with exterior walls.  These marks define lot lines.

3.         There is a dead plant and another plant that is not thriving on our front lot.  Do I incur the cost of replacing these plants?
A.        Under the normal maintenance program, the Association will replace dead or non-thriving plants at Association costs, within the Association's budgetary constraints.  However, if homeowners wants a particular type of plant, selected from the approved plant list, or a larger version of the proposed replacement plant, homeowner will be required to incur the cost of the plant.

4.         Can I request a replacement of a living plant on my front lot, patio or atrium?
A.        Yes, at owner's expense, which includes cost of removal, and following specific guidelines listed in the Tatum Village Landscape policy.

5.         What does "owners' expense" entail?
A.        When an owner is requesting a more mature replacement plant than being provided by the Association, the homeowner will be responsible for the incremental cost of the plant.  If the homeowner is requesting replacement of a live plant, homeowner will be responsible for the cost of removal of existing plant and full cost of plant, materials and installation by Association's contracted landscaper.

6.         At my expense, I would like to replace several plants on my front lot.  Is that possible? 
A.        Homeowner may submit a request for multiple plant replacements, but depending on the nature of the request, a consult with the Association's contracted landscaper may be required.  This consultation is to ensure that the replacements adhere to the guidelines outlined in the Tatum Village Landscaping policy and other considerations.  Homeowner will be required to pay for the consult, cost of removal of existing plants, and cost of installation of plants from approved plant list.

7.         I would like to add several plants to locations on my front lot that have never had plantings (new location) - at my expense.  Is that possible?
A.        Installing plants in a new location, or where there is no existing drip, will not be allowed.  Increasing the number of plants on a homeowner's lot increases the Association's future costs to maintain and replace.

8.         Can I purchase replacement plants locally and ask the Association's contracted landscaper to install the plants?
A.        No.  All landscaping plants and material must be purchased from the Association's contracted landscaper.

9.         If I paid for a plant and it dies or is significantly damaged, will the plant be replaced?
A.        A dead or damaged plant that was funded by the homeowner will be subject to replacement following the Association's normal replacement guidelines.  The Association retains the right to replace the plant with a different variety and a less mature planting.  If the homeowner would like to influence the plant selection from the approved plant list, or size, at their expense (again), then the request would be considered following the guidelines in the Tatum Village landscaping policy.

10.       Can I personally remove, replace or add a plant?
A.        No.  All landscaping must be performed by the Association's contracted landscaper.  Residents attempting their own plantings risk damaging the irrigation system.  Residents will be requested to remove any unapproved landscaping.

11.      As a homeowner do I "own" the plants for which I paid?
A.        No, all plants/cacti/trees that are installed at homeowner’s expense are considered a donation to the Association and become Association property.

12.      What maintenance can I perform on the landscaping on my lot?
A.        None.  The Association owns all landscaping throughout Tatum Village (front lots, patios, atriums and common areas).  As such, the Association is responsible for all watering, pruning, fertilizing, etc.    

13.      I have a shrub that has grown too large for an area on my lot.  Can I have it removed and/or replaced at the Association’s expense?
A.        Yes, per Landscape Request form on the Tatum Village website:   http://www.tatumvillage.com/forms/landscape, but the Association retains final decision regarding type of replacement planting or if replacement is appropriate. 

14.      A plant is creating a personal hazard on my lot (e.g. - attracting bees, overgrowing sidewalk).  Can I have the plant trimmed or removed?
A.        Yes per Landscape Request form on the Tatum Village website:   http://www.tatumvillage.com/forms/landscape


15.      Can I replace a plant that is outside my patio wall or between individual units - at my expense?
A.        No, the area outside the patio wall, and between individual units, is considered common area and will be maintained by the Association.

16.      I have noticed that there are several places in the common areas where a plant has died and has not been replaced.  Why?
A.        The Association and its contracted landscaper continually monitor the landscaping needs of the village.  The Association may make decisions to not replace plants in order to reduce the ongoing costs of watering and maintenance or to reduce density of mature plantings.   However, as appropriate, new plantings may be required for areas that have suffered noticeable loss.

17.      If I need to have my landscaping pruned or maintained, should I mention my request to the on-site crew?
A.        No.  Request for landscape maintenance should be through the Landscape Request form on the Tatum Village website:   http://www.tatumvillage.com/forms/landscape.

 

18.      How do I request landscaping maintenance or services?
A.        An electronic Landscape Maintenance Request form is available at the Tatum Village website: www.tatumvillage.com.   From the website home page, select "Request Forms", then "Landscape Maintenance Request".  After completing the brief form, the request will be electronically forwarded to the community manager and the TV Landscape Committee.  Homeowners without on-line access should contact a TV Landscape Committee member for assistance with requesting landscape maintenance.

They will  arrange for a plumber to come on site, clean the line and determine if the sewer blockage is a broken or  damaged sewer line caused by root blockage between the house foundation and the street connection.  If so, the HOA will be responsible for the cost of repair.

If it is determined that sewer blockage is created by inappropriate disposal of material into the line,  e.g. grease, or the sewer blockage is within the house the homeowner will be responsible for cost of  all repairs at the time of service.  If the homeowner calls someone other than PDS, the homeowner  will be responsible for cost of all repairs at the time of service. This may be appealed to the Board of  Directors on a case by case basis.

Homeowners with tenants are responsible for informing the tenant of the procedures outlined above.

To help maintain the health of the sewer lines, homeowners are encouraged to periodically utilize a  commercial grade root killer, per manufacturer instructions.  Additionally, homeowners should consider  installing a “popper valve” at their sewer cleanout connection.  This inexpensive valve is easily installed  and helps protect against accidental sewage flow into the home due to a blocked sewer line.
