are generally given 30 days to correct the infraction. However, serious
infractions may require an immediate response, as determined by the Board of
Self Help First.
If you are disturbed by the actions of other residents, you may wish
to personally contact the offending party to make them aware of the
situation. Often a friendly reminder resolves the situation. If the
grievance is not resolved after talking with the other party, you may phone
or email the Office Manager or submit a written complaint to the OIHA Board

violated, you may submit a written complaint to the Board of Directors, with
photos, if possible. Complaints
must be dated, identify the specific rule or rules suspected of being
violated and signed by the party submitting the complaint.
As soon as feasible, the Board will consider the complaint and make a
determination as to whether any rules have been violated and if any further
action is necessary to stop the violation. An effort will be made to inform
the complainant of the Board’s decision.
Violations of Association Rules may result in the imposition of a
fine. The Board will determine which behavior (or time intervals for chronic
conditions) constitutes a separate violation.
Paying a fine does not relieve a person from responsibility to
correct a violation.
General Fine Schedule.
Unless another schedule of fines has been published to redress specific
rules violations, fines may be imposed, at the sole discretion of the Board,
Fines apply for the first 30 days after the date the fine is imposed.
Continued presence of the violation on the day following the 30th day will
result in an additional fine per the above schedule. Repeated violations of
the same restriction within 12 months of the first warning will constitute a
successive violation according to the above schedule. Directors may
determine that each day during which the violation continues is a separate
offense, subject to a separate fine not to exceed $20 for each offense.
Serious violations may be subject to immediate fines, without warning, at
the sole discretion of the Board. Commencement of any project requiring
prior approval of the Architectural Committee per 3.1 above, without that
approval, may result in an immediate fine of $25.
The Board may determine that each day during which work continues is
a separate offense, subject to a separate fine not to exceed $20 for each
offense. Possession of a weapon
in the OIHA Common Area will result in an immediate fine of $25.

repair assessment is made against any Homeowner or Lot, the Board of

the amount of the fine and/or damage repair and the reason for the
assessment. The resident or Homeowner shall have 15 days to request a
hearing before the Board of Directors to have the matter reviewed.
This request shall be made in writing to the Board. If no request for
hearing is made, the fine and or damage assessment will remain effective

against the Homeowner, and (ii) become enforceable against the Lot, and
(iii) begin to accrue interest at the rate of 8˝ % per annum until paid in

due and payable on or before 30 days from the date that notice of such fine
or assessment is sent to the party concerned.

of 8˝ % per annum until paid in full.

Board may, in its sole discretion and without limiting any other remedies
available to the Board, send written notice of violation to the resident and
the Address of Record for the Homeowner, if different. The notice will
specify the particular rules being violated and suggest a specific remedy or
course of action for redressing or alleviating the situation. If the
violation constitutes a recurring violation or a violation for which a
general or specific fine schedule has been published, the notice shall also
specify the fine being imposed on the offending party, subject to an
enforcement hearing at the option of the offending party.
If a hearing is requested pursuant to paragraph 6.3, the Board shall
schedule a meeting with the Homeowner within 30 days of the receipt of the
notice of request of hearing to review the matter. All parties shall have an
opportunity to be heard at the hearing. Any party at the hearing may be

imposed under these Rules will give rise to lien rights in the
Association for collection of amounts due, and such liens may be enforced
the same as general liens for delinquent assessments pursuant to Article 4,
Section 8 of the CC&Rs.
Nothing in this section shall be construed as a prohibition of or a
limitation on the right of the Board to pursue other means to enforce the
provision of the various Association documents, including but not limited to
legal action for damages or injunctive relief. Per Article VIII of the
In the event an Owner of any Lot in the
