Satellite Dishes

As passed at the March 28, 2012 Annual Homeowner Meeting, the installation of satellite dishes in Crown Harbor is now defined by an amendment to the CC&Rs. There are two available options: on a weighted stand, and attached to a structure.

On a weighted stand

Placement

In compliance with federal law, without Design Review Committee approval, one satellite dish may be installed on a weighted stand on a Balcony or Patio. A satellite dish may not be placed on a stand in a general common area.

Though Design Review Committee approval is not required prior to installation, owners must notify the committee of the dish installation within 10 days after installation.

The placement of any object, vegetation, or Improvement that would (or may) obstruct the view, the visual corridors, and/or the open spaces within the Complex is prohibited without prior written approval of: the Association and the San Francisco Bay Conservation and Development Commission.

Attached to structure

In compliance with the CC&Rs, satellite dish installation may not penetrate into (or be affixed to) the exterior walls of the Building/Unit, fences, railing, gates, and/or doors that enclose or surround a Patio or Balcony. To do so requires a variance from the Design Review Committee with the following stipulations:
