Rules & Regulations




 

Just as the city has laws, HOA's have rules.  Our rules come from four primary sources.  They are in addition to the city's laws.  Our rules are intended to preserve and protect the assets of the Association, to protect property values, and to maintain our neighborhoods as safe, enjoyable places to live that are a source of pride to our Members. 

The Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions (CC&R's) are the governing legal documents that set up the guidelines for the operation of the planned community as a non-profit corporation. The CC&R's is the collection of covenants imposed on all property within the development.

The Association Rules set forth the operational powers or provisions and the use restrictions adopted by the Association as authorized by the CC&R's.  Our Rules include use and maintenance standards for individual lots and common property as well as the Association's Fine and Assessment policies and appeal process.
 
The Architectural Guidelines set forth approval requirements for exterior alterations for homes and lots, including landscaping and painting.
 
The Bylaws are the guidelines for the operation of the non-profit corporation. The Bylaws define the duties of the various offices of the Board of Directors, the terms of the Directors, the membership's voting rights, required meetings and notices of meetings, as well as other specific items that are necessary to run the Association as a business.
 
Other relevant legal documents include the Articles of Incorporation and Subdivision Plats.  The Articles of Incorporation creates the Association as a legal entity under state corporate statute; defines the board powers and responsibilities of the association and its membership; , etc.  Subdivision Plats describe the location and nature of the common property, easements and the individual lots.
