Public Notice of Woodbay Guideline Change

At their Feb. 13 meeting, Westchase Voting Members will consider, for the second time, an amendment to rules governing Woodbay’s gutters and drainage.

The potential change only affects rules in Woodbay.

The guideline amendment, if approved, would permit rain chains as alternatives to downspouts within Woodbay.
In addition to standard gutters and downspouts defined in Residential Guidelines Section 2.1.25s, rain chains would be allowed in Woodbay only as follows:

  1.  All Rain Chains must be tied into gutters and extend to the ground and secured at the bottom.
  2.  Rain Chains must not cause flooding or erosion to neighbor's yard as outlined in Section 2.1.25 Gutters and Drainage of the Westchase Residential Guidelines.
  3.  Rain Chains are limited to four in front of the house.
  4.  Rain Chains must be made of copper or aluminum.
  5.  Various designs and styles may be allowed by the Modification Committee .

The intent of this amendment is to add an additional option to the standard downspouts.

Once approved by its subassociation or a majority of its neighborhood’s residents, each guideline change has to be considered and approved by a supermajority of VMs at two meetings. It was approved for the first time on Jan 9.
