Lakeridge Association Rules and Regulations
The 13-acre Lakeridge Recreation Area is jointly owned by the members of the Lakeridge Association (the “Association”). “Member” or “Members” are property owners who have paid all dues and assessments and are in good standing with the Association. The Association was developed in 1962 through the hard work and ingenuity of several dedicated people for the benefit of its Members. The responsibility for its preservation and further development lies within each Member.
Each Member of the Association, upon being accepted into membership, must agree to abide by the rules and regulations of the Association in effect at the time the Member joins, and any subsequent amendments thereto. Pursuant to the Bylaws of the Association, the Board of Directors has the responsibility to prepare, adopt, and enforce rules and regulations concerning the conduct and activities of the Association and its membership. Such rules and regulations shall not be in conflict with the Articles of Incorporation or the Bylaws.
Any Member, after acquiring membership, may designate, in writing, to the Secretary of the Association, an individual occupying the building site who shall be qualified by such written designation to be the person to exercise the rights and privileges of the Member’s membership in this Association.

Suspension may exceed one year as directed by the majority vote of the general membership.

Notice of a suspension will be forwarded to each Member of the Association.
