Governing Documents

Declaration of Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions for The Trails of Chestnut Meadow

I.  Declarations


The Declarations establish many important characteristics of the Association. The first section is the definitions, which apply to the entire document. When you see a capitalized term in the balance of the document, it likely refers to a definition here, so this would be of particular interest. Another area of interest are the Architectural Standards and Protective Covenants. These sections govern behavior and architectural aspects of the Owners and properties within The Trails of Chestnut Meadow. Additional aspects of this section are:

        · Addition or withdrawal of property
· Membership and voting rights
· Obligations of the association
· Property maintenance
· Finances
· Common properties and easements
· Various exhibits

· Voting
