 We need your help in completing the voting process

The Board recommended several amendments to the Declaration and By-Laws. Those present and absentees voted overwhelmingly to approve the amendments. However, we did not reach the 75% threshold required to approve the amendments.

The documents were written in 1972 and the Board identified a number of areas where protections were needed and voting procedures could be modernized. An explanation of each proposed amendment is included in the ballot. The Board recommends approval of the amendments and requests all who have not voted to please do so.

Please complete pages 1-5 of the ballot, sign and date it, and mail it to the address shown on page one. Alternatively, you can complete the ballot, scan it, and email it to or fax it to VDarr @602-252-1114.
