PROPOSED BALLOT MEASURES (5 MEASURES)

Fence Height
  • Common heights for backyard fences today is between 6 and 8 feet. The Canyon Lake POA’s CC&Rs only allow up to 5-foot fences.
  • With several fence appeals coming to the Board every month, it’s evident the community favors a change to allow for six-foot fences in our CC&Rs
  • By voting to approve this amendment, the acceptance of six-foot fences will be formalized in the CC&Rs.

  • The Canyon Lake POA’s CC&Rs do not allow the Board or Architectural Control Committee to approve modern roof materials.
  • There have been significant changes in California health and safety code that places restrictions on roof materials, including fire retardant materials.   
  • By voting to approve this amendment, Canyon Lake POA will have the ability to allow members to use modern-day material that aligns with the latest California health and safety requirements.

Proxy
  • Proxy voting is a form of voting whereby one may delegate their vote to another representative or group. Proxy voting was removed from the Bylaws in 2016.
  • By voting to approve this amendment, the Articles of Incorporation will be consistent with the Bylaws. 

  • Cumulative voting is a system under which if there are three open seats during a board election, one member may cast all three of their votes for one candidate. This process, when coupled with the 2-year terms and annual elections has led to a new board every year that can radically change the course of the community every year based on the actions of a minority of members.
  • By voting to approve this amendment, cumulative voting will be removed from the Bylaws and there will be a better chance for more consistently balanced boards. 
Cumulative

Board Terms
  • Efficient operations are significantly hindered by annual changes in the board. This measure was placed on the ballot to improve efficiency and governance by avoiding the annual turn-over of the Board Directors, and to add stability in the Canyon Lake POA’s governance.
  • By voting to approve this amendment, Board terms will be changed to four-year terms in the Bylaws.
  • This would begin with the 2020 Annual Election which two directors would be elected for three-year terms (2020 - 2023), then in 2021, three directors would be elected to four-year terms. Elections would take place every other year thereafter.
