The Board of Directors of Medicine Lake Villas Condominium Association, Inc. is charged under section 5.6 of the Declaration of the Association with the power to “adopt, promulgate and publish
other rules of conduct reasonably relating to the enjoyment of and by the owners and occupants”. Every unit owner is responsible for full compliance with the Rules and Regulations of the Association by all unit occupants, guests and visitors. The Board of Directors is charged with their enforcement.

  1. The Rules and Regulations contained in the following pages are in the addition to those stated in the Declaration and Bylaws of Medicine Lake Villas Condominium Association, Inc.
  2. These revised Rules and Regulations will not reverse any previous action taken by the Board of Directors which was proper under the previous Rules and Regulations.
  3. The Rules and Regulations may be amended from time to time by the Board of Directors; provided that all such Rules and Regulations shall not be effective until at least ten (10) days after prior written notice has been provided to each Owner.


When a group of people share property, rules must be defined. These rules and their enforcement are essential to preserve property values in the community. In addition, they are intended to promote the maximum enjoyment of the property by all of the Residents, as well as their health and safety. Rules and Regulations are important in day-to-day communal living. Reasonable rules will help make the sharing of property convenient for all those involved. When Rules and Regulations are not followed, the Association must act firmly and impartially and, when necessary, impose penalties for violations. Without proper enforcement, they would mean little.
