Voting on several changes at one time


Guest Judy B

Recommended Posts

We will be voting on some changes to our By-Laws & Declarations. There are "statements" in the Definitions which we are removing and placing them in the By-Laws & Declarations. Can we vote on the changes to the By-Laws at one time (3 in By-Laws) and then vote on the changes to the Declarations (4 in Declarations) at one time?

Annual meeting is in 2 weeks. Thanks!

Yes, but unless these meet the criteria for conforming amendments, any of them must receive separate consideration at the demand of a single member (or a married one).

This is an example of what would be given to the membership:

STATEMENT OF JUSTIFICATION: These statements are not Definitions, therefore they should be removed from definitions and placed in the Declarations. The words are not changed.

Additions are indicated by underlined. Deletions are struck through.

1.

DEFINITIONS

1.15 "Recreation Unit"
means a fully self-contained vehicle type unit, or park trailer, initially designed and factory manufactured for recreational use.
Pop-up trailers and tents are specifically prohibited.
1.16
“Residential Unit”
means a single-story Park model or trailer that is anchored with required skirting attached to the unit, and the ground.
Mobile homes, Modular homes or two-story residential units are specifically prohibited.
Move deleted sentences to:

IV. LOT USE RESTRICTION

( B) Improvements:

(3) Mobile homes, Modular homes, two-story residential units, pop-up trailers and tents are specifically prohibited.

I really appreciate the input!

So, Tim -- would you say, based on the sample provided, that Judy is looking Yat conforming amendments?

The sample represents two separate motions to strike out and insert. Each is governed by p. 149, and in each case the words to be inserted cannot be separated from those to be struck. However, one motion to strike out and insert can be separated from the other.

But we are dealing here with one or more motions to Amend Something Previously Adopted (which are, of course, main motions), and reference to rules applicable to subsidiary motions to Amend may be misleading.

I was thinking that p. 110 would apply. (And I wish it weren't couched particularly in "resolutions" language, which can throw people off -- unless it speaks of "resolutions" for a reason, which escapes me.)
