Hello Neighbors. I hope this Newsletter finds each of you in good health.
One of the most important things we do as residents living within a Homeowners Association is express our opinion on changes or updates to our Governing Documents and our Rules and Regulations. Combined these documents set the stage for how we agree to conduct ourselves within the community.
By now each of you have received the Ballot Package to register your vote on our proposed Bylaws and Declaration of Covenants, Conditions, and Restrictions (CC&Rs). The Ballot Package includes: the Notice of Special Meeting; the Voting Instructions; the Secret Ballot; and the Amended and Restated CC&Rs and Bylaws.
As a reminder, a Special Meeting of our Members will be held on Saturday, September 16, 2017 at 10:30 a.m. at the Cathedral City Library, located at 33520 Date Palm Drive, Cathedral City, CA 92234.
The poles will be open from 10:15AM and closed at approximately 10:40AM. Doors will open at 10:00AM. If a quorum has been established, the ballots will be opened and counted. If a quorum is not established, the meeting will be adjourned to a later date not more than 30 days from the original date. Subsequently, it is imperative that you vote and return your Ballot to our Property Manager as instructed.
To change or amend our Governing Documents requires the approval of 67% (essentially 2/3rds) of our homeowners. Considering, there are 128 homes in our association, we need a minimum of 86 votes in favor of the changes in order for the measure to pass.
The Board urges all homeowners to vote and return their ballots. Ballots can be returned by mail to our Property Manager Company, or can be brought to the Special Meeting on September 16, 2017 to be counted.
Remember that the outside return envelope MUST BE SIGNED to be opened and counted. Unsigned envelops will only be counted toward establishing a quorum. If you did not sign your it is recommended you come to the ballot opening meeting to sign your envelop
