Revision of the Declaration of Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions

We’ve been discussing this subject for several years; but if you hadn’t heard, the Declaration of Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions (hereinafter CCR) can be modified every ten years — and that modification will be possible in 2017.
