Our current deed restrictions state that garbage cans are to be stored in the garage. The TLIA board would like residents to store their garbage cans inside or create a partition according to deed restrictions.  Garbage cans and other such items stored on the side of your house are unsightly. Let’s keep Twin Lakes the quality subdivision that it has always been. It benefits all of our property values.
