HOA vs. the Governor’s Drought Mandate

Can an HOA (home owners association) fine owners for not keeping their grass green?  No!, says the Governor.

The Governor’s Executive Order from April 25, 2014 explicitly suspended any enforcement and fines from Homeowners Associations that would prohibit water conservation measures. Some HOAs have rules about keeping grass green or a minimum number of days residents must water or similar rules. The key phrase in the Executive Order is ” I order that any provision of the governing document, architectural or landscaping guidelines, or policies of a common interest development will be void and unenforceable to the extent it has the effect of prohibiting compliance with the water-saving measures contained in this directive, or any conservation measure adopted by a public agency or private water company…” The link to the full Executive Order is below and the relevant paragraph is Directive 4, which can be easily found beneath the series of “Whereas,”. http://ca.gov/Drought/topstory/top-story…

Thank you PC for bring this to our attention.
