Hello. After much collaboration between residents, Homeowners Association leadership and the declarant (developer), the final standards for the fences along Yale Court and Stoney Ridge have been finalized and approved by the Board of Directors. These will also be applicable for any future home whose rear lot is directly facing an external street.
The Declarant and Board of Directors believes this approach balances the resident desires of maximizing their fence size and maintaining privacy, while keeping the Declarant’s intended aesthetics of a very visible area from a main road that is also adjacent to a main entrance.
You may view the updated document here (See Location Section – Page 1): https://www.hamptonplace.org/standard-lot-guidelines-fences
- One thing that has changed since the most recent Board meeting is the trees within the HOA Landscaping easement are no longer being moved. They were designed and strategically placed within the HOA Landscaping easement for positive aesthetics along with future privacy as they grow. Moving them would change the effectiveness of both intentions. How residents will accommodate this, and their fence location, is outlined in the updated guidelines.
Members within the HOA Leadership (not an official meeting) will be available, via video conference, Tuesday May 19 from 6:00 PM – 6:30 PM to address any questions, comments, etc. that you may have regardinxg these rules (https://hamptonplace.org/live). Additionally, letters are going to be delivered to each resident with applicable information.
At this time, you may submit your requests for fences and the Design Review Committee will be reviewing submissions against the latest version. All existing requests will now be approved to continue for review and will also be reviewed against the latest version.
All but one lot along Yale Court/Stoney Ridge has NOT received final grade. This is likely a big contributor to the poor drainage occuring on many of the back yards. Ryan Homes is in process of doing these now weather permitting (see individual status below) There is no official ETA as to when these will be done, but Ryan Homes suggested that any questions, concerns, schedule updates should be requested through the Ryan Homes Warranty department at 1-877-550-7926.
Here is the latest status (Per Ryan Homes):
6100 YALE CT – final grade incomplete, needs additional work and reinspected
6092 YALE CT – final grade incomplete, needs additional work and reinspected
6084 YALE CT – final grade not completed, being scheduled by project manager
6076 YALE CT – final grade approved by NR
6068 YALE CT – final grade not completed, being scheduled by project manager
6060 YALE CT – final grade incomplete, needs additional work and reinspected

As shared during the monthly HOA Board meeting, the Declarant (developer) was ok with fences, but wanted a common look to them all. There also was no specification on location where fences were permitted. During the Board meeting after discussion, which also included some attendees from Yale Court, the Board voted 4-0-1- on the proposal that “all fences along any entrance where the backyard direclty faces a main road outside the development must be black aluminum and would follow all the other guidlines set fourth in the HOA Governing documents.”
It was made clear, this vote was for the proposal, not the official decision as this is NOT a Homeowners Association decision at this point. What is going to shared to the Declarant was a proposed plan by the HOA leadership. Ultimately if, what, and where the fences are permitted will be decided by the declarant, as permitted by the HOA Governing documents.
Additionally, the declarant said all trees would be removed that are on resident lots. They did not realized the landscaper had done that.

The Hampton Place Homeowners Association leadership team has held discussion regarding backyards, fences and common area maintenance for all residences with rear lots that face Stoney Ridge. Based on design decisions, solely by the developer and Ryan Homes, a unique situation has arisen that we have recieved resident input on determining a resolution.
- Differing rear lot lines on the mound
- Common area/resident maintenance of mound
- Fence placements
- Tree/Landscaping Installation
The Hampton Place Homeowners Association leadership has committed to contacting the developer, the builder, and/or the North Ridgeville city engineering department to inform them of the issues, and help foster discussions for resolution.
