Yes, we know they are 50 years old but they apply nonetheless.    An attempt to modernize the Covenants was made a few years ago by the RHIA Board.  While this effort did receive majority support, it did not reach the required number of affirmative votes needed to pass in each subdivision, so our 50 - year - old Covenants DID NOT GET CHANGED.

Yes, the Covenants DO apply to you.  (see disclaimer at bottom of page)   Each of the 205 lots in Rustic Hills Acres is subject to legally binding Protective Covenants that “run with the land.”  If you own land here, the Covenants apply to you.  This helps to protect everyone’s property values.  Click here to see all Governing Documents.   Three different sets of covenants, depending on where you live. Separate (but mostly similar) Covenants apply, respectively, to Filing #1 (the two-acre lots on or west of Payton Circle) and the one-acre lots in Filing 2 (Number 1 and Number 2).  To read the full Covenants, click here.   The RHIA Covenants in a nutshell***.
