As long as you do not rent and you do not live in a historic structure, no one can keep you from putting up an antenna. (If a property is a rental, there could be limitations with regards to drilling holes in a structure).

For safety reasons, an antenna more than 12’ above your roof may be subject to local laws.

At the same time, there are conditions the neighborhood covenants could impose (preference for back/side of the house for example), but ultimately they cannot stop you from putting up an antenna to reliably receive signal.
