Governing Document Amendments

The Board of Directors is contracting with a law firm to conduct a comprehensive amendment project for our Articles of Incorporation, Bylaws, and Covenants & Restrictions.  The goal of this process is to update very outdated documents, include association-owned mailboxes into our governing documents, and enable the board to better address landscaping and unsightly conditions in our subdivision.  The proposed revised documents and information about the upcoming meeting to discuss them can be found on the Governing Documents / Proposed Amendments page.

The goals of amending our association governing documents are to:

  • Update documents to comply with new federal and state laws and court cases.

  • Update documents to include association-provided mailboxes in our governing documents.

  • Modernize our documents to address the current ‘hot topics’ faced by modern associations.

  • Remove errors, typos, and all unnecessary developer language.

  • Improve readability with shorter paragraphs, less ‘legalese,’ more section titles and subheadings.

  • Consolidate or shorten documents, sections, and text as possible.

  • Remove all illegal (or potentially illegal) provisions.

  • Customize documents to the particular needs of our community.

  • Improve overall functionality and effectiveness of our documents.

  • Educate the membership of the purpose, content, and function of the association’s governing documents as part of the amendment process.

The cost for the complete legal review and proper filing is $8,000.  We have anticipated and included this expenditure in this year’s budget; the membership will not incur an additional expense.  We will publish and share all altered governing documents with all homeowners at least 30 days before any association vote.


The e-mail provides a way for you to vote on whether or not you support the board moving forward with this initiative.

To help with the voting process, please make sure we have your current email address by using the "Connect" page and / or by providing updates on the form included with your assessment invoice.


Here is an outline of how the amendment process would work:
