BULLETIN BOARD RULES
Before all the bulletin boards could even be installed, some people are not following the rules and putting inappropriate material on the bulletin boards. As a reminder here are the rules, please take note and if you have questions please call the HOA Office for clarification. These boards are intended to inform (garage sale, HOA function, treadmill for sale) and alert (lost cat, patio furniture stolen, etc). Political endorsements, obscene materials, and commercial ads unrelated to Civano or its residents are a few examples of prohibited items. If you notice inappropriate materials please remove them.
Board Resolution - CASITAS
The Board of Directors signed a resolution to allow Homeowners with casitas to rent the dwelling separately from the main house. Prior to this resolution, the CC&Rs allowed only for the entire parcel to be leased and did not allow a Homeowner to rent a casita or over garage apartment as a separate dwelling. There are rules and restrictions regarding this variance.
To apply for a variance for your casita fill out the request form and return it to the HOA Office. The variance is permanent and runs with the land so even if your home is sold, the buyer does not need to re-apply.
Lost and Found
Just a reminder, if you lose something while out and about in
our lovely community, give the HOA Office a call and check to see if someone happened to turned it in. By the same token, if you find a
lost article, please turn it in to the HOA Office.
The item's owner may be looking for it!

HOA CONTACT PROTOCOL
There have been some recent issues where Homeowners have approached Board Members or Committee Members directly seeking HOA action. In September of 2007, the Board of Directors made a motion that passed unanimously to set the proper protocol for Civano residents to make contact with the HOA, Board, and its Committees and it reads as follows:
There is only one protocol for contacting the HOA. If a homeowner has a problem or wants to get a message out to the Board Members, they shall no longer send information directly to individual Board Members. New protocol that will be strictly enforced is that all communications must go through The Manager’s Office.
MOTION: To make the protocol that all information must first to go through the Manager. Motion was seconded. Discussion ensued. Motion passed unanimously.
The reason that the Board put this policy in place is so that information could be properly disseminated and followed through.
There are many ways to contact the HOA and Homeowners are welcome and encouraged to use the method they are most comfortable with.

Getting on the HOA Board Agenda
Issues that need to be addressed as official agenda items must be turned in to the HOA Management office one week prior to the Board Meeting. There is an open forum where Homeowners can address brief items, but for items that need to be discussed at length or for issues that have accompanying documentation or would require a vote of the Board, a one (1) week prior submission is required.
So if you have an issue that will take up a significant amount of time, or requires that Board Members review related documentation, please turn in agenda items one week in advance of a Board meeting. Items received less than one week in advance of a Board meeting cannot be added to the Board agenda. If you have questions, call the HOA Office at 546-3862.
Be sure to check the HOA calendar for other events and community activities.
If you want to learn more about your Association, or you volunteer to pitch in, contact the HOA Office.
