Changes to CC&Rs

Several people have requested to know what the major changes are between the current CC&Rs and what we are proposing. Here is a list of changes.

  1. The townhomes can receive a reinvestment fee, paid by the purchaser, when a townhome is sold (5.19(4)).
  2. Sets guidelines for the Townhome Committee in determining dues as well as stipulations for handling the dues should the guidelines not be followed (6.1 of the Bylaws).
  3. Removing all language requiring us to pay the developer to take care of the land by the creek. (Necessary to change since the HOA now owns the land by the creek).
  4. Clearly defining the relationship of the townhomes and single unit homes.
  5. Properly aligned responsibility for townhome expenses to be covered by townhome owners.
  6. Bring the CC&Rs in line with current legislation, such as electronic communication and voting, solar regulations, reinvestment fees, etc.
  7. Reduce powers, and set regulations regarding the Board’s access to lots and residences.
  8. Allow for owning chickens according to current Lehi City guidelines.
  9. Allow vehicle maintenance in the driveway if not left overnight.
  10. Require owner approval for capital improvement expenses over $10,000
  11. Cohesive language throughout instead of the copy and paste from other CC&R documents.
