Rules and Regulations

Here are the Rules and Regulations that expand upon the rules set forth in the CC&Rs as well as general fines per category. Download or read below.

Fines are generally assessed only after two warnings have been issues. Fines cannot be assessed more frequently than once every 10 days for violations that haven't been resolved.

Fines can be paid in the same manner as HOA dues. If you disagree with a fine you have 30 days to request a hearing with the board. You can do this via email or can attend a board meeting.

All fines and late fees constitute a lien on the property.




Visit the architectural approval page to submit plans for any changes to your property, including trampoline holes, pergolas, fences, etc.
