The Board encourages all homeowners, especially new members of our community, to attend these meetings as homeowner issues will be discussed. Only homeowners are invited to attend homeowners meetings.

Election of the Board is held at the Annual Homeowners Meeting which is held every summer. There are five Board members who each serve a two-year term. Occasionally, a board member moves or resigns, thus creating a vacancy. This vacancy will be filled by appointment of a new director from the membership by the Board.

“Any proposals for alterations, additions, or other improvements of Restricted Common Area shall be submitted to the Architectural Committee in writing by the Owner proposing such alterations, additions or improvements. The Committee shall review such proposals to determine (i) whether such proposals would be compatible with the design, construction and standards of quality of the Project; (ii) whether the proposed improvements would interfere with or disturb the use or enjoyment of other Units; and (iii) whether the proposed improvements would be acceptable to the City in which the Project is located.”
  • The AC shall adopt a policy for the Standard of Appearance for all restricted common areas (that is, Balconies and Patios). This Standard of Appearance will be presented to the Board of Directors for inclusion in our policies.
  • The AC shall inspect all restricted common areas at least four (4) times per year and report the unit numbers of those not in compliance to the Management Company. The Management Company will then send letters asking that the homeowners bring their balconies and patios into compliance.
  • No later than two weeks after letters are written to homeowners, the AC shall re-inspect those units and report to the Management Company those units still not in compliance.
  • When asked to make a decision on appearance issues for the common areas, select paint, select tile, etc., the AC will do so within thirty (30) days. If the AC does not make a decision within thirty (30) days, the Board of Directors will then make the decisions and commence with the work.
  • If the AC is unable to come to resolution, it may ask for Board assistance with the final decisions on appearance of projects.
