Construction of other approved structures or improvements shall proceed at a reasonable pace expected for the particular type of structure or improvement.

1.18 The trees located within Ocean View offer the entire development great aesthetic value. It is understood that often some trees must be cut to prepare a Lot for a homesite, driveway or other improvement. No live trees larger than 16 inches shall be cut or removed from the Lots without the written approval of the Declarant, its successors or assigns, and such permission shall not be unreasonably withheld from the Lot owner.
The expansive water and marsh views from each lot at Ocean View are an important attribute for the entire development. Maintaining these views is essential. No trees or other vegetation shall be planted on any lot that will grow to a height of 8 feet or more which will obstruct these views. A privacy hedge or other planting on the property side lines and rear lines may be used but it shall not be allowed to grow to a height of more then 8 feet. The Declarant reserves the absolute right to remove any vegetation that is not in compliance with the requirements of this paragraph. An exception to this paragraph shall be that trees and other vegetation of any height may be planted and are encouraged along the rear property lines of Lots 37, 38, 55, 56, 57, 58, 59 and Outlot A (the western boundary line of the property) to provide additional screening between the Ocean View development and it’s abutters outside the development to the west.
1.19 The roads within Ocean View have been constructed to specifications as designated by the Virginia Department of Transportation (“VDOT”) as part of the subdivision approval process. At the present time the roads are private and owned by the Declarent. They will be deeded to the Owners Association when established. When the requisite number of occupied homes in the subdivision, to-wit: Three (3), has been established, then at that time the roads will be turned over to the Commonwealth of Virginia for inclusion in the secondary road system. To maintain the integrity of these roads and prevent mud and dirt from being carried onto them, the driveway for each Lot shall be graveled or paved for at least the first 50 feet before any home or foundation construction activity commences on the Lot, and the entire driveway shall be completed with a hard surface of concrete, asphalt, or pavers within 12 months after completion of the home. Driveway material selections are subject to approval by the Declarant and the Architectural Review Committee as described in Article Two.
