Our POA money goes to trash collection for all residences; the operation, care, upkeep, insurance, taxes and hiring of personnel for our Common Areas; maintenance of POA drains; care and paving of all roads; street light fixtures and bulbs; all bookkeeping of POA funds; and police patrols in our neighborhood.
If your garbage can was old and beat up, it’s possible that the garbage truck ate it. Call our Bookkeeper, listed in the telephone directory for a replacement.

Article IX – Architectural Review of the Covenants specifies that the Architectural Review Board (ARB) approve, in writing, all new construction plans, and all modifications to the exterior of existing buildings and property. The ARB Committee members are listed in the Directory, and the ARB manual can be found on https://riverhillspoa.org/

Anything related to the exterior of the home, including items such as roof, paint, concrete, façade, windows, decks, pools, hot tubs, fencing, tree removal and even landscaping fall under the heading of the ARB. Nothing inside the permanent exterior walls does, but interior remodeling may require Horry County permits and inspections to ensure current building codes are met.

No signs are allowed on property during renovation or remodeling projects. Only a general contractor can place a sign on your lot during the period of ORIGINAL construction, preapproved by the RH ARB. Security signs are allowed with permission of the ARB. Open house sign is permitted with stipulations. Refer to the Rules and Regulations in your telephone directory or to the Summary of Restrictions and Covenants at our website for full details.
