run with this land. This IS NOT a heavily restricted parcel like you would normally find in this part of the
state. These simple covenants help keep your property value high and benefit everyone! You can hunt,
camp, and mobile homes are allowed.
These covenants are to run with the land and shall be binding on the Purchaser and all persons claiming

the use of keeping a reasonable number of horses and cattle thereon, provided the parcel
has been fenced. Under no circumstances shall a stockyard or any other commercial activity
(other than ranching) involving animals be permitted. Any animals kept on this property shall
be maintained in such a manner that they do not present a nuisance to owners of neighboring
parcels. Kennels with greater than three dogs are not permitted.

locate a dozen hog houses on the boundary with your parcel. This al prevents your neighbor
from building an apartment house or operating a go-kart track next door to your peaceful
B. No structure of temporary character (Ex. tent or lean-to type structure) shall be used as a
residence. Such structures may be used for recreational purposes, but shall not be allowed to
remain on any parcel for more than two (2) months during a calendar year. Mobile homes,
recreational vehicles & travel trailers are allowed.

type of activity. What this covenant prevents is a neighbor setting up a permanent tent city.
Nobody wants that as a neighbor.

vehicles are defined as those which either do not run, or are not licensed.

landscaping business there just because they charge to do that at the land-fill.

corridors, or recreational open space. In any event not more than twenty percent (20%) of
any one parcel may be cut or cleared. Commercial wood harvesting is prohibited. Excavation

strip mine next to your property.

on or from the roads within development.
