West Ridge is a covenant-restricted community which means that all West Ridge homes are subject to the rules and restrictions established by the governing documents.
[You should have received a copy of those documents when you bought your home. They're also available online without login under "Public Documents" at both westridgehomeowners.communitysite.com (= west-ridge.org) and at west-ridge.info.]
Some of these rules (the Covenants) require lawyers, court proceedings, and a super majority of homeowner support to change. That's why the Covenants haven't changed since the days of Portrait Homes and D.R. Horton, why they still contain all sorts of special provisions for the developers, etc.
There are gaps in the rules and homeowner safeguards that are not covered by the old rules but that many of us believe should be. This has led to our desire to update and rationalize the entire set of covenants, rules, and regulations.
As announced in the September newsletter, the "CCR Committee" has been formed to do that. We aim to complete the work by the end of November so that the necessary court proceedings can be done by the end of the year.
During September and October, YOU ARE WELCOME TO SUBMIT SUGGESTED RULES CHANGES TO THE COMMITTEE, EITHER TO THE CCR COMMITTEE MEMBERS DIRECTLY OR VIA WACCAMAW MANAGEMENT. (NOTE: No HOA Board members are on the CCR Committee, so please don't send suggestions to Board members.) If you use email, please put "CCR CHANGE" somewhere in the subject.
