When do I need a variance?

Simply put, a variance is an exception to the Neighborhood Rules and Regulations. A variance is required for any modification that changes the exterior appearance of your home.

Substantial alterations in landscaping design require a variance. However, minor landscaping improvements such as adding or replacing trees, moving flowerbeds, etc., do not require a variance. Satellite dishes of normal size for residential use are permitted; other antennas require a variance.

A listing of the Neighborhood Rules and Regulations, as well as a Variance Application Form, can be found in the Forms and Documents section of this web site. All variance requests can either be presented to a board member, or directly sent to the neighborhood covenants committee.

Who is responsible for snow removal?

Our snow removal contractor is RMP Landscaping of Millington. They are responsible for plowing and salting our 30 cul-de-sacs whenever the snowfall is 2″ or greater. In the event of problems in your court, residents can also call any board member.

The main roads (Hansom, Liberty Ridge, Honeyman, and Revere) are cleared by Bernards Township. If you have any problems with the main roads you should call the township Works Department at 204-3084 during business hours, or the Police Department at 766-1122 during non-business hours.


What is the difference between the Liberty Ridge Neighborhood Association (LRNA) and the Hills Highlands Master Association (HHMA)?

The LRNA deals with all matters affecting the properties within Liberty Ridge proper, such as maintenance of cul-de-sacs, the Honeyman Road playground, local architectural standards, and social activities. Our houses pay $34 per month to the LRNA. The HHMA, on the other hand, is responsible for issues affecting all 23 communities within the Hills. In particular, the HHMA is responsible for the Hansom Road Recreation Center (including pool, clubhouse, exercise room, basketball courts, rollerblade court, playground, tennis courts, and soccer/baseball field), the Signal Point Road Recreation Center (including pool, basketball court, playground, and tennis courts), and three other playgrounds (on Vanderveer Drive, Watchung Drive, and Wellington Drive). The HHMA is also responsible for a number of open spaces and detention basins distributed throughout the Hills. Our houses pay $29 per month to the HHMA.
