Canyon Lake Property Owner’s Association’s Board of Directors have worked closely with legal counsel and staff to develop the proposed 2019 Special Election Ballot Measures. These amendments will address:
- Articles of Incorporation Amendment to Remove Proxy Voting
- Bylaw Amendment to Remove Cumulative Voting
- Bylaw Amendment to Extend Future Board Director Terms to Four (4) Years
- CCR Amendments to Modify the Five-Foot Fence Height Restriction
- CCR Amendments to empower the ACC to select and designate appropriate roofing materials to Modify Roof Material
These measures have been selected to help modernize and enhance the Canyon Lake POA's Governing Documents by adapting to the needs of the community and industry standards, and to better stabilize the governing board.
If all ballot measures are approved, additional copy, print, distribution and administrative costs per page in the election packet may apply. Election of Board Directors average at a total of $40,000 per election. Significant election and administrative related costs are expected to be reduced by extending terms and having a bi-yearly election. In addition, significant administrative savings are projected if six (6) foot fence and modern roof material requests can be approved at the Architectural Control Committee (ACC) or staff level.
Notices of the annual election, election schedule, and ballot materials will be announced and mailed to members once the election date is selected.
The election is meant to conclude once the highest quorum requirements have been met, which may take several months and adjourned meetings with an expected completion by mid-January. All ballots will be processed by the Canyon Lake POA's Inspector of Election.
