COVENANTS & BYLAWSThe rules and regulations that apply to Cedar Springs' properties and HOA
About the Protective Covenants
Each set of covenants for the 13 respective parts of Cedar Springs are designed to preserve the overall value, aesthetic quality, and desirability of our development for all 394 property owners.
HOA board members—in addition to their responsibilities of maintaining HOA-owned common properties and communicating with the membership at large—respond to members’ questions and/or requests related to the covenants, and follow up on any complaints brought forward from Cedar Springs homeowners.
The board knows it is important to familiarize current and future HOA members with the covenants so that no one unknowingly violates any of them. In addition, it’s necessary to deal with any member who knowingly decides to ignore covenants, because inaction on the part of the HOA board will prompt others to ask, “If everyone chooses to do this, what will Cedar Springs look like?”
The HOA board looks forward to working with you to maintain and enhance the qualities that have attracted you to Cedar Springs. We think it’s a wonderful development to call home.
