Governing Documents

Neighborhood appearance and upkeep are a high priority of the Grogan's Bluff HOA. The architectural guidelines, landscaping guidelines and property maintenance recommendations have been established to create and maintain a community of high appeal and visual harmony. 
Homeowners are urged to read these guidelines, as well as the full set of Covenants that are a part of the deed to their home.
The guidelines listed here are based on the general intent of the Covenants, Conditions, and Restrictions for Grogan’s Bluff, but are not to be construed as a complete representation of these covenants.
All residents must comply with the Covenants, Conditions, and Restrictions as agreed upon when purchasing their homes.  Think of the CC&Rs as being the rules of our neighborhood. They describe the requirements and limitations about what you can do with your property. The goal of the CC&Rs and our enforcement of them is to protect, preserve, and enhance property values in the community. Please make yourself familiar with all of these rules and guidelines and most of all - be a part of making our neighborhood great by making sure you are in compliance.
If  you have questions about the guidelines, covenants, bylaws or the approval / violation processes, please reach out to

Declaration of Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions

The terms “CC&Rs” and “Declaration” are used interchangeably for the more complete “Declaration of Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions.” The CC&Rs will contain restrictions on the use or enjoyment of property and will describe the rights and obligations of the association’s members such as: (i) restrictions on the use of property; (ii) member and association maintenance duties; (iii) enforcement powers, (iv) lender protection provisions, (v) assessments obligations and lien/collection rights; (vi) duty to insure; and (vii) dispute resolution and attorneys’ fees provisions. Because the CC&Rs are recorded documents, the rights, and obligations that they impose are referred to as equitable servitudes that run with the property, which means that they are binding upon all current and future owners of the properties that are subject to those CC&Rs.

Bylaws are internal corporate documents that are adopted by an association’s board of directors as part of the incorporation process. The bylaws establish policies and procedures for the governing of an association. They contain provisions pertaining to such things as: qualifications for the election of directors; the number of directors and the length of their term of office; directors’ powers and duties; the designation and appointment of officers; directors and member meetings; voting rights and requirements; and member inspection right.

Operating Rules (Rules) are regulations that are adopted by an association’s board of directors that apply to the management and operation of the association. The authority for the adoption of rules by an association’s board of directors must be given the association’s governing documents and the rules that are adopted must be consistent with the provisions contained in the CC&Rs, which are first in the hierarchy of governing documents. If, for example, CC&Rs state that owners have an unrestricted right to rent or lease their property, the board of directors cannot adopt a rule that prohibits the renting or leasing of properties as that would conflict with the CC&Rs. The board could, however, adopt reasonable rules relating to the rental or leasing of properties so long as the rules do not try to prohibit something that the CC&Rs permit. Rules that are adopted must not be arbitrary, or violate public policy, or impose undue burdens that outweigh their benefit. State statutes and/or an associations CC&Rs or bylaws will specify the procedural requirements for the adoption of rules.

Policies are also adopted by an association’s board of directors, and they can cover many different subjects such as the assessment, collection and enforcement of dues, dispute resolution, architectural controls and guidelines, and elections. The adoption of certain policies may be mandated by state statutes and/or an association’s CC&Rs.
Association members are expected to be familiar with the content of their association’s governing documents, and state laws typically provide that, copies of all association governing documents be provided to the purchasers of properties that are subject to those governing documents. Additionally, an owner’s tenants are responsible for compliance with an association’s CC&Rs and rules, so they too should be provided with a copy of those documents. Notwithstanding said requirements, properties that are subject to governing documents are frequently transferred or leased without the new owner, or an owner’s tenant, obtaining copies of some or all the association’s governing documents. In such a case, copies should be obtainable from the association upon request. If they are not provided, state statutes always contain provisions that provide a mechanism for obtaining copies of an association’s governing documents.
