Good Neighbors. . . .

Please leash and pick up after your pets. Santa Rosa County
law requires that pets be on a leash. Animal Control will be
notified if pets are observed wondering around the
neighborhood. It is unsanitary to allow your pet to deposit
feces in your neighbor’s lawns or in the common areas. This
requirement is also stipulated in the Grand Pointe East
Covenants and Restrictions. You can reference this by going
on our website’s page entitled DOCUMENTS (gpehoa.com).
