This unofficial copy of the the Quail Ridge Rules & Regs is provided solely for the convenience of our homeowners. It is not a legal document.
QUAIL RIDGE HOMEOWNERS ASSOCIATION CONDENSED RULES & REGULATIONS
CREATED September 30, 1994
UPDATED December 2014
The purpose of this manual is to publish and maintain the policies, procedures, and rules supplementing the CC&R's and By-Laws of the Quail Ridge Homeowners Association.
The Quail Ridge Condominium Homeowners Association Board of Directors is responsible for authorizing preparation and approval of policies, procedures, and rules necessary for the conduct of the condominium community and its business affairs. The Secretary will sign and affix the Board approval date and the date of distribution to homeowners of record and tenants as appropriate.
The Management Company will publish and distribute copies of the manual's initial release to homeowners and tenants. Individual releases of new and/or revised policies, etc. will be distributed. Copies of the manual will be furnished to new owners with the CC&R's and By-laws.
Homeowners are responsible for maintaining their manuals in current date order. Replacement manuals may be obtained for a nominal charge of ten dollars ($10.00) to cover the cost of printing and handling. Absentee owners are encouraged to include copies of the manual in their rental agreement in order to assure understanding and agreement of our operating methods by tenants.
BOARD MEETING RULES OF ORDER
The purpose of this policy is to define the parliamentary procedure that is expected to be followed at meetings held by the Board of Directors. These Rules are essential to the effectiveness of successful meetings. Each board member is expected to know and follow these rules. They allow for preparation of the business agenda, the conduct of a meeting in accordance with Robert's Rules of Order, and the proper method of passage or rejection of each item of business. The formality of these rules assist in the smooth flow of meetings and will enhance the control necessary to transact business and protect each member's rights.

Robert's Rules of Order.
The agenda must be prepared in advance and followed in the given sequence.
An Open forum for comments by owners may be held. Owners should state their name and address before commenting. A time limit should be set by the presiding officer. The topics and sequence of the agenda are as follows:
1. Call to order by the presiding official establishes that a quorum is present.
2. Approval of minutes as submitted. Reading is optional, but board members must have a copy for advance reading at least three (3) days prior to the meeting.
3. Review and acceptance of the Treasurer's report, balance sheet, income statement and check register are minimum reports for approval.
4. Management agent's report.
5. Committee reports
Standing committee reports (list each report)
Sub-topics for major items should be listed
Special committee reports
6. Old business
These are topics documented from a previous meeting that are still open for resolution (list each)
7. New business
Each known new business item is to be listed
The presiding officer may delegate the preparation of the agenda; however, he/she has final approval. It is understood that from time to time, there will be special issues to discuss that haven't been listed on the agenda for various reasons. Every effort should be made to have all items on the agenda and each item should be accompanied by appropriate copies of related documents. The agenda and related documents are an integral part of the "board packets" to be delivered to directors at least three days prior to meeting.
Parliamentary procedure requires that each item of business be brought to the board in the form of a MOTION. A motion is a formal proposal by a member on which the board must act.
A board member making a motion should be prepared with all facts ready to present. If the motion is complex in nature, it should be documented and presented in advance to the secretary and directors prior to the meeting, preferably with the board packets.
The person making the motion obtains the floor only by recognition by the presiding official. All other actions are out of order for discussion and will be so announced by the presiding official.
1. Making a motion
The member gets formally recognized by the chair, the motion is introduced by "I move that ... " and the motion then follows.
2. Seconding a motion
Another member seconds the motion. A second means that another member believes that the subject is worth discussion. A motion must have a second to proceed; if not, the motion fails and cannot be discussed.
The chair calls for discussion. The maker is the first to speak. Every other member wishing to speak is then given the opportunity. A second opportunity is given only after all others have had the opportunity to speak once. All discussion must be limited to the motion before the membership.
4. Put the questions to vote
The chair repeats, the motion and calls for a vote, "aye" and then "nay." A member may call for a "roll call" vote on the important issues.
The chair announces the results, stating whether the motion has passed or failed. The secretary records the proceedings.
FIDUCIARY STATUS OF BOARD MEMBERS
A board member is a fiduciary who holds a charter similar to that of a trustee of an express trust of property, and it is their duty to act for the good of others, rather than for their own benefit. The duty of a board member is to exercise his powers for the benefit of the association.
The board of directors has the power to act, and it must act as a board -not as individuals. Individual action by one member or several members is not action by the board and ordinarily not effective or binding on the association.
Board members may not lawfully turn the board's powers over to an individual.
The board members cannot bind the association by their acts unless they act as a duly assembled board with motions passed in the proper procedure. The board members are representatives, and their acts are binding to the association. They are subject to fair criticism by the association membership. The membership possesses the ultimate control over the board of directors with the RIGHT TO RECALL.
The chairman may appoint a parliamentarian to administer scheduled meetings. The parliamentarian should be a member of the association, but does not necessarily need to be a board member.
POLICIES AND PROCEDURES
The association will maintain a book of policies and procedures to govern the administrative functions of the organizations. A written document is required for each procedure and all procedures will be filed in a notebook that is to be maintained current. It will be the responsibility of the board of directors to add, delete and modify them as needed. These changes must be accomplished as motions in scheduled board meetings.
Included in the procedure manual will be:
- Committees and their responsibilities
- Job descriptions and Termination policy
- Maintenance procedures
- Pool hours and restrictions
- Insurance requirements
- Hearing procedures
- Financial procedures
- Reporting requirements
- Approvals required for expenditures
- Maximum amount for routine expenditures
- Monthly, quarterly & annual reporting requirements
- Homeowner requirements
- Homeowner information records
- Parking rules and regulations
- Calendar of events scheduled for the fiscal year

Procedures will be numbered & dated with the board meeting date that they were approved along with the signature of the Secretary of the board.
Board meeting approval date: January 2015

PROCEDURE FOR MAINTENANCE OF BALCONIES/DECKS
The following is the adopted procedure for the long-term maintenance of the specific use easements; i.e., the balconies. Specific use easements are defined for this purpose as the balconies that can only be entered through your unit.
Since the Board of Directors and their hired maintenance personnel are unable to freely inspect the balconies for dry rot damage, termites, loose boards, paint damage, and other potential hazards that could injure someone, the Board has adopted the policy that "All homeowners are responsible for inspecting their own balconies."
Should any homeowner notice any of the above situations or any situation with their balcony that could cause damage or increase the liability of the homeowners association, the homeowner is responsible for informing the management company and setting up a time during the day to allow the proper maintenance crew to repair said damage.
All homeowners are asked to inspect their decks right away to ensure that all balcony railings are attached to the building properly.
For homeowners that own upstairs units, we ask that you report to the management company if you notice any part of your railing and/or stairwell leading up towards your front door to be of a hazardous condition.

NOISE POLLUTION GUIDELINES
Living in a community with so many close neighbors requires extra consideration to the noises we create and extra tolerance in ignoring what we hear. Here are some guidelines for making the sound environment more pleasant for everyone:
1. No engine revving, loud motorcycle acceleration, wind chimes, skateboarding, rollerblading or skating.
2. Avoid unnecessary noise from honking, shouting, car stereos, car alarms, etc.
3. If you need to use loud equipment occasionally, such as power tools, check with your neighbors to determine an agreeable time period or at least operate noisy tools only between 8 a.m. and 9 p.m.
HELPFUL SUGGESTIONS IN LIMITING NOISE DISTURBANCES
1. Train your dogs not to bark unless duly provoked. There are training collars and other techniques to help with this.
2. Keep sound levels as low as possible on all audio equipment. Consider the placement of the speakers to minimize vibrations. If necessary, negotiate with your neighbors to reach; agreeable sound levels and tones of use. Use headphones when possible.
3. Minimize loud music disturbing others by closing house and car windows.
4. Speak in normal tones. Caution members of your household and guests against creating a noise and language disturbance at the pool and other common areas.
5. If necessary, walk and move things as gently as possible and not late at night. Consider installing extra padding on your floor and sound proofing walls.
6. Several ways to minimize unwanted noise is to invest in sound proofing devices, white noise such as a fan, soft music, nature tapes, earphones, earplugs, etc.
7. If in blocking out noise you are concerned that you won't hear danger, consider investing in security equipment.
