The Village at Blue Mountain Beach (“Village”) is a collection of 142 homes and condominiums on Highway 30a. In order to ensure that all owners and guests can enjoy the Village and its amenities, to maintain property values, and to preserve the appearance of the community, the Association (defined herein below) developed the rules and regulations outlined herein (collectively, the “Rules”). These are based on the Amended and Restated Master Declaration of Covenants and Easements for Blue Mountain Beach Development (“Covenants”), and, the Amended and Restated Bylaws of Blue Mountain Beach Master Owners Association, Inc. (“Bylaws”), as recorded in Book 3064, Page 2572 of the Public Records of Walton County, Florida (collectively, the “CCRs”), as well as past decisions of the Blue Mountain Beach Master Owners Association, Inc.’s (“Association”). While these policies and rules may limit some owner activities that may be appropriate in unrestricted communities, the small lots, closeness of our units, and short-term rentals, make them a necessity in the Village.
The Association’s authority to establish these Rules is outlined in the CCRs. The CCRs and Rules specified herein apply to all properties included in the Village and are not limited solely to the common areas. The CCRs and Rules will be made available on the Village’s web page under the Association, “Covenants” tab. The relevant section is as follows:
V. POWERS AND DUTIES OF THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS
4. To appoint committees, adopt and publish rules and regulations governing matters of common interest to the Members, including without limitation, the use of the Common Area or any portion thereof, the personal conduct of the Members and their guests thereon, and the use of Parcels as determined by the board to be in furtherance of the Association’s objectives as stated herein and as provided by Florida law.
Bylaws at Page 3, Art. V(A)(4)
In addition, some items that are addressed in the CCRs are restated here for clarity, notification, and convenience for owners and guests. Finally, these Rules may be amended from time to time to address new situations the Association may encounter. These extracted policies and rules are:
Rule Infractions: An owner will receive a notice informing him/her of an infraction. Owners will incur a fine of $50 per day for each infraction of the Village CCRs or Rules until the infraction is cured. The fine will accrue from the date of the infraction.
Owners will receive a certified letter with a meeting date/time for a hearing by the Fines Committee.
