Restatement of Bylaws

The Board approved the Restatement of the Bylaws, as they have been updated over the past 50 years, at the Regular Session Board Meeting Tuesday, January 12. It was the culmination of years of research and work by Canyon Lake POA staff and our legal team to sort through documents, and create a complete set that includes updated language and represents and records the decisions that were made over the years. The Board recognizes and appreciates the outstanding work of Lynn Jensen, Assistant General Manager, and Harmony McNaughton, PIO/Clerk of the Board.

While there were no significant omissions found, there were several inconsistencies between published versions that were corrected. This action did not modify any of the bylaw provisions that take a vote of the membership. The updated document is available on the Governing Documents page or here: Bylaws - Restated January 2021 (PDF)

Moving Forward

The Board is now in a position to be able to confidently put forward a set of ballot initiatives in the May election aimed at modifying the Bylaws. Our goal is to streamline our operations, build consistency in our governance processes, and assist in the steps being taken to be a family-oriented, resort-style community for the permanent residents with a wide variety of interests. The Board is now considering asking the members to vote on the following changes.

  • Board of Director's Terms
    Changing the Board of Director's terms to four years with a two-term limit would provide additional consistent leadership since each Board will have two years to carry out their agendas. It would also save money by requiring an election only every other year. This change nearly passed last year.
  • General Manager
    Formalize the General Manager's position as the CEO of the association. The Board President will remain the Chairman of the Board of Directors. This is how the Canyon Lake POA currently operates now, and this change would make it consistent with most other associations of our size.
  • Spending Limits
    Update the spending limits of the Board, with respect to capital improvement projects and the purchase, lease or rent of real property. The current values were formalized in 1997, and appear to be based on 1990 dollars. The proposed increases will likely be based on the level of inflation that has occurred and thereby provide the membership with the same level of control.
  • Debt Limitation 
    Increase the 5% debt limitation to a value that will support the planned Capital Improvement Projects and can easily be accommodated within our financial structure. The current limitation was established in 1990.
