Letters: Fence Variance


Editor, The Friday Flyer:

Canyon Lake Property Owners ballots will be mailed beginning April 11. It is your duty to exercise your choice for three Board of Director seats.

There is also an amendment to the Covenants and Restrictions. If you desire to install a six-foot fence, please vote to change this CC&R. In order to change this amendment it requires a two-thirds vote in the affirmative.

In order to qualify for a six-foot fence at this time you must have a topographical issue, if not your application will be denied. You then have the choice to submit for a variance that will be denied by the Architectural Control Committee (ACC).

The ACC does not have the authority to approve this variance. You then can submit to the Board of Directors for the variance. This is a lengthy process and expensive. The ACC is a volunteer committee. The staff has to generate each letter of denial and mail to the homeowner. These costs come from your dues.

Each request has to be placed on the ACC agenda and after the final denial, it is placed on the Board agenda. This process can take one to two months, which is aggravating for the homeowner. Please vote and tell your neighbors and friends.
