CC&R Amendment to Remove the Five-Foot Fence Height Restriction
Over the years the community has requested 6-foot fences to improve privacy. In recent years, Canyon Lake POA Boards have agreed with this request and based on an informational survey, began routinely accepting requests for 6-foot fences on a case-by-case basis. After approving dozens of fences without complaint or protest, it is apparent that the community is in favor of this change. By approving this amendment, the acceptance of six-foot fences will be formalized the in the CC&Rs.
Questions & Answers
Q: Don’t we already allow six (6) foot fences?
A: Yes, so long as the Board of Directors approve a variance for the life of the improvement at a duly noticed Regular Session Board Meeting. This process has become a standard practice for Canyon Lake POA to accommodate the standard industry practice of increased privacy and security by way of a fence up to six (6) feet in the community setback. By approving this amendment, members would have an express right to fences at this height now and into the future; given it’s approved by the ACC.
