INFORMATION FOR OUR OWNERS:
Landscape Commission is responsible for developing, recommending and
administering recurring and non-recurring programs which preserve and,
where necessary, enhance the landscape environment of Lake Barrington
Shores. In developing such
programs, the Commission considers all relevant factors, including, but
not limited to, the aesthetic and functional purpose of plant materials,
their effect on the well-being of other plant materials, on-going
maintenance costs, and public safety.
This encompasses all trees,
plant growth, flowers and grass in all common areas including the Forest
Preserve, lake buffer strip and natural habitat areas.
The Commission representatives advise their Condominium Boards of all unit owner requests for variances involving removal, additions or location changes
In 2001 and upon recommendation from the Landscape Commission, the Master Board approved breaking the property up into 3 zones and bid them out separately. The multiple zones allowed a greater number of quality contractors to bid on landscaping.Lake Barrington Shores. .Thus far, the results include both high quality landscaping and improvements due to cooperation among the contractors and sharing of "best practices".
Condo Owners can review the Map Below to determine which zone and contractor covers their area. Contact your commission member with questions and further information.
