Each such building, wall, structure, or topographical change shall be placed on the premises only in accordance with the plans and specifications and architectural plan and site plan so approved.

No future alterations in the exterior structure of buildings or topographical landscape shall be made without like approval. If the Developer shall fail to approve or disapprove the plans and specifications as submitted within thirty (30) days after written request thereof, then such approval shall not be required providing that no building or other structure shall be erected which violates any of the covenants herein contained.

  4. Fences and Walls:

No animals, livestock, or poultry of any kind shall be raised, bred, or kept on any lot except dogs, cats, or other household pets so long as they are not kept, bred, or maintained for commercial purposes and are not permitted to annoy the owners or occupants of other lots. All applicable laws or ordinances must be obeyed with regard to all household pets. No pet kennels or pet enclosures shall be permitted on any lot.

    No lot shall be allowed to appear in an unclean or untidy condition or one that will be obnoxious to the eye; nor shall any substance, junk, or material be kept on any lot that will emit foul or obnoxious odors or that will cause any noise that will or might disturb the peace, quiet, comfort, or serenity of the occupants of surrounding property.

The decision of the Developer shall be final as to the interpretation of the foregoing reservations and restrictions. The failure to promptly enforce any of the reservations and restrictions shall not bar enforcement. The invalidation of any one or more of the reservations and restrictions by any court or competent jurisdiction in no way shall affect any of the remaining restrictions and reservations, which shall remain in full force and effect. After due notice, should any lot owner fail, neglect, or refuse to comply with the foregoing restrictions and reservations, and the Developer or other lot owners be required to seek judicial relief for the same, then said violating lot owner shall be responsible for all costs and expenses incurred in the enforcement of these reservations and restrictions, including attorney fees and costs.
