Camelot Forest Conservation Association, Inc. (CFCA) is a deeded community. By that, we mean there are restrictions that are a part of every owner's property deed and that these restrictions "run with the land" as it is transferred from owner to owner.
Deed Restriction No 8 (as recorded in Vol. 821, page 258, Monroe County, PA) states:
"The Buyer, his heirs, successors and assigns, shall not, on the within described property, build any building, or make any alteration or addition or improvement in any building without first having submitted plans and specifications including plot plans to the Seller, and also having first obtained in writing from the seller its approval and consent."
To assist the Board of Directors in the preservation and enhancement of Camelot Forest as an appealing residential community, the Vice President, supported by the Homesite Committee, reviews and approves permits. These Permit Guidelines, in addition to other policies, will serve as a common basis for the development and improvement of the community so as to maintain continuity of the natural character and appearance as a means of enhancing overall property values.
CFCA requires PERMITS for the following projects but not limited to this list:
". . . any alteration or addition or improvement" to any building, such as
- Change of exterior color of the house, roof, siding, shutters, gutters, etc.
- Garages (must be attached) and carports
- Decks and porches
Other items requiring CFCA Permits, such as:
- Fences, Walls and Barriers
- Tree Cutting or Removal
- Sheds and Other Outbuildings
- Driveway Pipes
- Asphalt Driveways
The homeowner should be aware that permits may also be required by Tobyhanna Township and other governmental agencies. It is the homeowner's responsibility to secure these permits PRIOR to applying for a permit from Camelot Forest.
