Britton Farms Mailbox Regulations


The original supplier for the Britton Farms mailboxes was Cedar Craft Products, whose 2017 flier is attached. The mailbox standards established by the grantor, per the restricted covenants, are described below. Roush Hardware also has a book for Cedar Craft Products which contains the code for these same standards. The standards have not been revised and remain in effect.

While your Britton Farms HOA Executive Board does not expect neighbors to replace recently purchased posts or mailboxes that are not within the standard (unless egregiously out of standard, such as a white mailbox), we do ask that mailboxes be brought into standard as much as is reasonable. This includes replacing posts and boxes that are in poor condition, painting posts the standard color, and ensuring the proper mailbox numbers are on both sides of the post. Any replaced mailboxes or mailbox parts should meet the standards posted.

This information is also available on the Downloads page.

Britton Farms Park Spring Clean Up and Improvements

Britton Farms Community partners with the Hilliard Recreation and Parks Department

Hilliard Rec and Parks has committed a lot of supplies for Britton Farms Park to make it look fantastic, including a new wheelchair/stroller accessible path to the shelter house. Britton Farms Homeowners will come together to provide hands on support…while making our park look fantastic. Please join us from for fun day of service with our neighbors.

Here is what we have planned:

When: May 21…12:00-3:30

What We Will Do:

  • Park and Rec will spray and lay out gravel on the path. We will help rake and spread it.
  • I asked Park and Rec to make a wheel chair/stroller accessible path from the sidewalk to the shelter house…they agreed to do this. Park and Rec will cut out the path and we will fill it with special gravel that will last a long and support wheels.
  • We will be sanding and painting the picnic tables…and maybe some of the shelter house.
  • Park and Rec is supplying equipment to power wash the shelter house.
  • We will have trash bags and gloves to pick up trash and pile up branches.
  • We will trim some of the trees and bushes.

Food and Drinks: Britton Farms HOA will provide snacks and water.

What to Bring: Rakes, clippers, etc…though we should have plenty.

Why: Because Britton Farms is the best community in Hilliard. It will be a fun day of service and support for our Hilliard Park and Rec. Please plan to join us with your family and let’s make our park something to be proud of…it will be a lot of fun!

Any questions, feel free to contact Greg Rokoff (4529 Withem Court) at either 614-397-9052 or gwrokoff@gmail.com.
