Outdoor Decorating Policy
Sewickley Heights Manor is a planned residential community with an integrated design of Tudor-style buildings, grounds and roadways. Property values and attractiveness of the Manor depend on maintaining architectural and landscape continuity throughout the community. Outdoor decorations greatly influence this continuity and shall be monitored jointly by the Landscape Committee and Architectural Control Committee. If the outdoor decoration being reviewed by the committees is owned by a member of one of the two committees, he or she must abstain from voting.
This Outdoor Decorating Policy is written in accordance with the Sewickley Heights Manor Homes Association's General Regulations Governing Buildings and Grounds. Within this policy the term "Owner's grounds" refers to the grounds located within the Owner's lot on which his/her unit is located. This is a strip of land usually less than 3 feet wide which runs along the outside walls of an Owner's unit. The term "Manor grounds" refers to all areas beyond the Owner’s lot and includes private roadways.

SHMHA Winter Weather/Snow Removal Policy
SEWICKLEY HEIGHTS MANOR-OWNED STREETS will be cleared after the first two inches of snow has accumulated and then every several hours thereafter. This will be done every day of the week. The target time for making sure our private roads are clear for automobile traffic is 7 A.M. Salting the streets will be done on an “as needed” basis, considering present and forecasted weather conditions.
DRIVEWAYS will be cleared AFTER the streets are completed, the snow has stopped falling and no melting weather is forecast, and no significant accumulation is expected within the next twenty-four hours.
SIDEWALKS AND STEPS will be cleared after the snow has stopped and there is at least a two-inch accumulation. Sidewalks and steps will not be cleared on holidays or weekends.
ALEPPO TOWNSHIP-MAINTAINED ROADS are: Sewickley Heights Drive, Rockledge Dr., Sewickley Ridge Drive, Sewickley Ridge Circle and Sewickley Ridge Court. If there are problems with snow removal on these streets, please contact Aleppo Township 412-741-6555 during business hours or call the non-emergency number, 412-369-2200 after hours.
SPECIAL NEEDS – If a resident needs special snow removal for medical or other circumstances, the SHMHA Office should be so informed, and an attempt will be made to meet those needs.
Residents are reminded that the Manor has minimal staff and there are 316 driveways and over 200 sidewalks to clear, so please be patient. Please do not park in the roadways since it impedes snow removal and makes your car vulnerable to damage. If a car is parked in the driveway, the driveway will not be plowed. Once the roads are salted, traffic improves the melting process.
