It's an election year. Can we post a small political sign in our yard?
- While we are all for civic engagement, article III, section 10 of the covenants prohibit the posting political campaign signs within the neighborhood.

I've seen a [pet/animal] roaming freely in the neighborhood. What can be done?
- Article III, Section 8 of the Spence’s Field covenants provides that:
- [p]ets shall be under leash when walked or exercised on any unfenced area.
- Any pet owner walking their pet shall carry a device for removing dog feces; feces must be immediately removed by the owner of the dog or the person responsible for the dog.
