Background of Governing Documents Update Project 

Our Association’s governing documents were last updated in 1992. Since then, there have been many changes in the laws which have resulted in our existing articles of incorporation, bylaws, and Covenants, Conditions & Restrictions (CC&R's) being outdated, incomplete, or inaccurate concerning important aspects of our operations. For this reason, the Board of Directors have been working with the Association’s legal counsel to develop the updated governing documents. See draft governing documents below:

To provide feedback on the current drafts of the governing documents and for members interested in joining a working group to review these documents, please contact the Executive Assistant by email.

Hierarchy of Document Authority

An association’s governing documents include various sets of documents (i.e., declaration ("CC&Rs"), bylaws, operating rules, etc.) that control the operation of the association and the common interest development (CID) it was formed to manage. Certain governing documents have authority over others. Civil Code Section 4205 sets forth the hierarchy of authority as thus:
