Subdivision Restrictions

We all want to live in an attractive neighborhood, with high property values, where our neighbors are friends. A safe place where kids can play in the streets and we can leave our doors unlocked.

To support this vision, residents are responsible for following all Hillsboro City Ordinances, as well as Eagle Ridge Subdivision Restrictions.

These restrictions were established to provide a framework for our community that will keep it great for years to come.
