A reminder that the fall CLPOA Property Owner’s meeting is Tuesday, October 24th at 7:30 p.m. The meeting takes place at the Lodge. There will be discussion on a proposal to revise the constitution to add verbiage in regard to short-term rentals. Below is the announcement that was sent to the community via email on 10/11/23.
In order to restrict Short Term Rentals at Choctaw Lake, below are the proposed changes to the CLPOA Constitution verbiage to be voted on at the October 24, 2023 Property Owners Meeting. This wording has been reviewed and approved by the lake legal counsel.
Article II, Section 1 defines 4 classes of members that have lake access: Full Voting Members, Associate Members, Tenant Members, and Honorary Members. Amend Article II, Section 1(C), Tenant Members, to read:
“Bona fide tenants shall become tenant members. Tenant members shall have no voting rights. Tenant members shall obtain lake and guest privileges by meeting the same requirements as full voting members with regard to abiding by the rules and regulations and remaining a member in good standing pursuant to Article II, Sections 3 and 4. To qualify as a bona fide tenant, an individual must be occupying a lot pursuant to a written lease for a continuous period of no less than one (1) complete calendar month. Roomers or boarders, that is, individuals renting or leasing a portion of a lot or residence only, shall not be considered bona fide tenants. Only bona fide tenants shall be considered to be tenant members and shall be entitled to the use and enjoyment of the common properties and facilities.”
Amend Article II, Section 4, to add a new Subsection D, to read:
“Any member who permits their lot to be occupied by a tenant who is not a bona fide tenant as defined in Article II, Section 1(C) above shall be subject to having their membership privileges suspended by the Board of Trustees for a period not to exceed six (6) months for each violation. For purposes of this section, a tenant shall refer to any individual or group who is paying any sum of money or anything else of value in exchange for staying on any lot and/or using any of the common areas or facilities. It shall be presumed to be a violation of this provision if any individual has arranged to use or occupy a lot and/or any of the common areas or facilities through Airbnb, VRBO, or any similar website or service.”
