Thank you to all homeowners who attended the 2022 HOA meeting is year. For those of you who couldn't attend to minutes are posted under the Documents Tab.
As you are all aware the HOA fence that boarders the community on the north side is in need of repair/replacement. We have reached out to several fence contractors and have determined that replacing the fence would be our best option. The cost to do so would be between $85,000-$100,000. Luckily, the HOA does have the funds available for this and there will be no special assessments levied against homeowners. Below is a map of where the fence is located as well as confirmation that the HOA is responsible for the fence (General Notes #9).
The vote to use existing funds to replace the Canyon Hills HOA fence was passed on a vote of 87 yes to 32 no. We will reach out to fence companies this spring to get updated estimates on a wood fence vs vinyl fence costs and select the best fit for our situation. Our hope is that the fence will be replaced this spring or early summer.
AMENDMENT TO THE CANYON HILLS HOA BYLAWS
On November 4, 2020 during a meeting of the five Canyon Hills HOA board members, a discussion to add an amendment to the HOA bylaws concerning a “good standing“ designation and definition took place. After some research all five member voted to amend the bylaws, as allowed in Article V of the Canyon Hills HOA bylaws, to add a qualification to serve on the board. As is common in many Home Owners Associations, a member will not be permitted to serve on the board if that member is delinquent in payment of dues, assessments and/or fines.
The approved amendment to the Canyon Hills bylaws language will read,
Requirements for governing eligibility for voting and for running for the board of directors.
That the member be current in payment of all association dues, assessments and fines and also a requirement that the member's privileges of membership have not been suspended as a result of breaking association rules or violating the governing documents. A members privileges are suspended when association dues, assessments, or fines are delinquent and are not paid in full before the date a vote is to take place.

Chain link or other metal fencing is not allowed except for minor uses such as a dog run/kennel or swimming pool; provided however, that the metal fencing is not an integral part of the property fencing or boarder and is properly screened from view.

CCR Section 4.1 states that “Harmony is to be maintained through the use of earth tone colors and natural building materials when possible.
