In addition to the HOA-maintained website that you are currently on, there is a second non-affiliated social website -- Nextdoor Turner Downs -- that many neighbors have joined and find useful. The site is restricted to residents of Turner Downs.
NC State Law Requires Licensed Drivers Only Golf Carts
Only licensed vehicles driven by licensed drivers are legal for use on our roads. Other vehicles are prohibited and may be ticketed by the Sheriff. Golf carts must have lights and be registered in the county to be driven and then only by licensed drivers. Please help keep our neighborhood safe by following the speed limits and laws. If you see laws being broken and are so inclined, do not hesitate to call the Sheriff's office (919.856.6900).
We ask that dog owners clean up after their pets as they walk the neighborhood.
If you're walking your pet, it must be on a leash. It does not matter how tame or small the pet is; they must be restrained if they are not in your home or in a fenced yard. Please note, this leash requirement applies to both dogs and cats. You can report strays or other issues with animals to Wake County Animal Control.
When your dog barks continually please attend to it. This is especially true in the evenings when people are eating, relaxing, and sleeping, and in the early hours when some people may still be sleeping. Everyone appreciates your cooperation.
If a dog barks continually or if it violates the requirements in Article XIII of the Covenants, one can contact Wake County Animal Control (or call 919-212-7387) for assistance.
Obnoxious Noises & Annoyances
Article XI of the Protective Covenants for Turner Downs states that “No noxious or offensive activities shall be conducted or permitted upon any lot… or which may become a nuisance or an annoyance to the neighborhood.” Article XIII covers annoying sounds made by animals – e.g., barking dogs, etc.
Please be aware and considerate of your neighbors if you own loud equipment such as ATVs, gas-powered golf carts, motorcycles, powered scooters, etc. -- This is even more important "after hours."
Open Fires - Outside burning of garbage or debris are not allowed.
This violation falls under Article X, of the HOA Covenant -- "No garbage or debris shall be burned on any lot, nor may any lot be used as a dumping area."
Parking on Streets
While we enjoy decent streets in our neighborhood, they are not quite wide enough to comfortably allow for parked cars. We encourage all residents to park their vehicles in their driveways or garages to keep the streets clear for traffic and pedestrians. Visitors and commercial vehicles will at times park on the roads. Please be careful when passing parked vehicles to avoid accidents.
No Solicitors Allowed
“No Solicitation” signs are posted at each of the entrances to Turner Downs. However, there is nothing to prevent people from entering our neighborhood and knocking on doors. If you are bothered by solicitors, inform them that solicitation is not permitted and ask them to please leave the neighborhood. A follow-up call to the business might prevent future similar incidents.

The Turner Downs HOA Board typically meets each month on the third Wednesday at 7 pm. Please use the "Contact Us" link to find the location of the next meeting.

Replacement of Pool Roof
Please check your speed and be aware of children, walkers, bicyclists, joggers, and others who may be on the roads. Repeat offenders of the posted speed limit, including business vehicles, school buses, etc., should be reported to the Sheriff’s office.
You may have a home improvement project planned like the addition of a shed, fence, barrier screen, or a garage. Before you start planning, be sure to read the “Protective Covenants” and submit an “Architectural Request Form” to the HOA Board at least 30 days prior to the start of your work. Additionally, some work may require a building permit and/or the approval of Wake County, e.g., impervious surface calculations. Be aware of and comply with property easement building restrictions that are documented in the Covenants.
The “Protective Covenants,” “Architectural Request Form,” and the “Architectural Guidelines for Fencing/Screening” are available on this web site by clicking on the “Documents” link.
