February 9 Board Meeting Highlights

Last Tuesday's Board Meeting was a milestone for approving significant community projects and an extraordinary interaction between the Board and members regarding several important issues. Your Board continues its dedication to the principles we developed, which includes our core values, purpose, and vision. We strive to accomplish them through deliberate planning, appropriate processes, and continuous interaction with the community.

Community Projects

Shade Structures
The Board approved funding for new shade structures over picnic and play areas for both Sierra Park and Indian Beach. Both the Recreation Committee and Facilities Planning Committee recommended these projects. The shade structures will provide much-needed and sought-after family gathering spaces.

Mailbox Lighting Project
The Board approved funding for the Mailbox Lighting Project that will take place over the next 18 months as the mailbox slabs are replaced. This project results from significant research by the Facility Planning Committee and represents the best value for the convenience and safety the lighting will provide. Lastly,

Irrigation Replacement Project
The Board approved funding for the Irrigation Replacement Project for the golf course. This project will reduce our water usage at the golf course by 14% and eliminate most of the weekly repairs that currently take place to the system. This project will also be partially funded by a grant from the water provider.

Proposed Rules for 28 Day Readings

There were three proposed rule changes approved as 28 Day Readings. This was the second iteration of each one based on Board and community discussion at previous Board Meetings. As required by Davis-Sterling, these remain open for discussion before bringing up for final action in no less than 28 days. The proposals are available on our website at

RV Parking (General Rules, 5.5a)
The Board is seeking to balance safety with access and the loading and unloading needs of their owners. The published proposal was amended at the meeting based on the member comments received.

Trailer Parking (General Rules, 5.5c)
The Board is seeking to relax the trailer parking rules to accommodate overnight parking of trailers when connected to vehicles. The published proposal was modified slightly to better define where parking is permissible.

Wake Surfing in Slalom Course (Lake & Marina, 9.28)
This rule is related to wake surfing in the slalom course area, and it generated extensive testimony. The Board's key concern is the need to protect the course itself from continuous damage and the need for guidelines for safe use. Most of the testimony received was related to limiting an ideal area for wake surfing.


There was discussion related to possible rule changes pertaining to political signs. Controversy related to the number, location, and content of political signs, flags, posters, and banners has been an issue in Canyon Lake for many years. This issue was particularly prominent this past election cycle. The Board continues to receive emails expressing strong opinions on both sides of this issue.  They include wide-ranging views on the duration of permissible display, their location on golf carts, and their content. Restrictions on the American Flag display is not an issue and, in fact, is protected by law. As is our current practice, the decision to change a rule starts with an open discussion that is facilitated by a published background statement.  Such a statement for this discussion was provided in the agenda package. The Board appreciates this outpouring of opinion and has received well over 100 emails and comments. The Board is moving toward a possible resolution in two steps. The first will be to enact a few emergency adjustments to the Rules & Regulations in the next week related to changes that are widely accepted. These will likely be followed by other changes in the weeks to come. The Board is planning to hold a Special Board Meeting as soon as possible to consider the emergency changes and looks forward to continued input for the community. Please watch for the announcement.
