4. Amended Rules and Regulations
Attached to the meeting report for Board review is the final revised and proposed Rules & Regulations handbook. Should the Board agree with the content and changes, we suggest it be forward to legal counsel to review and comment on the changes.
After that step, it should be mailed to Unit Owners for their review and consideration. It is suggested that the required Special Meeting of the Unit Owners be held following the necessary review period and prior to adoption of the Rules, which could be held prior to a future Board of Directors Meeting. Following review by counsel, any necessary edits can be made, such a meeting could be scheduled and a draft forwarded to owners.

A sample motion: “I move the Board of Directors approves [or] denies a Unit Owner’s request for a support animal.”
6. Garage Project Credits
As a part of the planning process for the Garage Project, we have devised a credit schedule for parkers that are displaced when their space is being worked on. The Board approved a budget of $75,000 for potential credits, which represents one total month of income for garage business.
We propose the following: On 1p, we expect every parker to be displaced during their phase, for up to 4 weeks barring unforeseen conditions. On 2p, parkers will be displaced for the first 3 days of their scheduled phase, and as needed to perform concrete repairs on the ceiling. We anticipate the ability to accommodate up to 35 parkers in valet, and plan to do that on a first come first serve basis for 1p parkers, and 2p parkers as we are able. Parkers would have a choice to valet park, or accept a credit for their space based on the time they are otherwise without parking.
We anticipate 8 phases of work – and 7 will displace parkers on 1p and 2p. All phases of work are expected to be completed within 4 weeks. Barring unknown conditions, our plan for credits as outlined above should fall well within the budget of $75,000.
We request the Board discuss this, and approve a requisite resolution.
