Hi. We want to build a pool in our side yard (no room in the back).
Our HOA denied our pool build, stating : "Pool and/or decking cannot encroach the side 20 ft. Building line."
We already have a 14 ft. easement that is cutting through our lot, which the PB worked around to make a free form pool fit within the easement lines.
I understand our HOA's purpose of the restrictions for building an extension to the house in the build line, but it seems feasible to me that a pool would not detract from our community's uniformity- our house backs up to a lake and several houses along our lake already have pools. There is a ditch/water retention wall on the west side of our property.
Before I appeal their decision - could you please look at my survey and give me some advice/terminology to help me build my case?
Here is my survey: http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7436/9...2e37e09a_c.jpg You will have to zoom in.
Thank you for your time!
