Rules and Regulations

Homeowners Associations are governed by Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions (CC&Rs), Bylaws and other supporting rules and regulations determined by the trustees, or the Board as they are commonly called.

CC&Rs and Bylaws are the foundation of what governs the HOA and can only be modified by the terms stated therein, which is 67% approval of the members of the HOA. If 67% of the members of the HOA do not approve a change then the CC&Rs and Bylaws cannot be modified.

Bylaws generally outline items for the trustees (the Board) such as the times for annual meetings and the roles of the Board.

Supporting rules and regulations are fluid and can be changed by a majority consensus of the board during board meetings. These rules can be anything from the kind of fencing you can have to the roof shingles allowed on the roof. A major reason to attend board meetings is so that you can have a voice in what the board discusses and passes.

One item the rules state is that you must get approval for any changes to your property, such as colors, additions, fences and even pergolas. Visit the architectural approval page to submit plans.

The Construction standards and Landscape standards are the other standards set forth in the CC&Rs to be adhered to by members of the community. Please refer to these before obtaining permits from Lehi City or seeking approval from the architectural committee. If you have any questions, comments or suggestions on these, please use the contact form on the right to reach the board, email a board member directly, or attend the next board meeting.
