Satellite Dish Policy
Prior to any installation, the owner must notify WhiteStar Management and gain permission to have a satellite dish installed per HOA policy.

While a dish may be installed with permission from WhiteStar Management, Inc., an Architectural Variance Request Form and Satellite Dish Policy/Agreement must be submitted for approval by the Board at its next monthly meeting. As of April 2021, these forms can be submitted via the WhiteStar Management Homeowner Portal or AppFolio mobile phone app.  A deposit of $350 is required to be paid with the request, refundable if all conditions of installation are met:

  1. The owner assumes all responsibility for the satellite dish, including installation, service, and removal. This includes any damage caused to the structure by the satellite dish from installation/removal/service, wind storms, natural disasters, and acts of God.
  2. Satellite dishes are not to be installed in any manner that is connected to or penetrates the roof, eves, or any part of the structure.
  3. Placement of the satellite dish must be as inconspicuous as practical.
  4. Installation should ideally be on a weighted surface supplied by the provider.
  5. All cable shall be placed to be as undetectable from a ground view as possible, and in a compatible light color.
  6. Any holes in the stucco or exterior walls shall be properly sealed around cables.
  7. Satellite dishes must be permanently labeled as to the unit to which it belongs, either etched, engraved, or with an ink that will not fade or run. Unlabeled satellite dishes may be removed and/or discarded.
  8. Upon sale of property or discontinuance of service, the satellite dish must be removed, including all cable and hardware, and the patching and painting of any holes in the structure. This work must be done by a licensed, bonded, and approved contractor.
  9. After removal and satisfactory inspection, the $350 deposit will be refunded within 14 days.
  10. All proposed projects must address the protection of the roof membrane. Any holes necessary to install equipment must be reported. Any damage to the integrity of the roof structure, whether or not approved by management, will be the responsibility of the unit owner.
