Questions and Answers:
Declaration and Bylaws Preamble
Q: I question having the ACL Building and Environmental Code precede Board approved Policies. Board approved policies should trump other regulatory language that is not recorded upon which the Board has authority to approve, an action current policy includes language in the guidelines for paths and greenway areas that involve recommendations from Building/Maintenance and Conservation that require Board approval. I think the order of Items 6 and 7 should be reversed.
A: The Building Code is adopted by the Board. While the AECC might review applications, the terms of the Building Code are approved by the Board and are a written set of guidelines and requirements that owners must follow as established by the Board. Because both the Board policies and the Building Code are adopted by the Board, the order or priority probably doesn’t matter too much between these two. If there is a conflict between a Board policy and the Building Code, the Board can correct this by changing one or the other, or both. Since the Building Code is included in two sections of the Declaration and it pertains to all 2743 Lots, while the Board Policy only pertains to the nine Board of Directors, the Legal Commission recommends keeping the proposed rank at this time.
