Petition Process and Sample Petitions

1. The city or any of its agencies don't care how you started an association and there are no fees required.

2. The fee ($50.00) is the charge to register with the Secretary of State, accompanied by the form, which in short is an incorporation of the association, without the legal process.

TO COMPLETE A PETITION FOR A "NEIGHBORHOOD ASSOCIATION"
1. Determine the number of "lots" or owners in the boundary area you have chosen.
2. Take the petition door to door for signature of approval.
3. Fifty percent (50%) plus 1 is the necessary number of petition signatures.
4. If that number is reached then proceed with bylaws, election, etc.
5. File the petitions and bylaws with the County Clerk and Recorder
6. File appropriate forms with Secretary of State
7. Notify City Planning or complete and mail the form below (Sally) (385-5351, Gladys Akbari) that you are a recognized association and want to be included in their contact information and map.

TO COMPLETE A PETITION FOR A "HOMEOWNER ASSOCIATION"

1. If there are active covenants, check to see what percentage of owners are required to make changes. If there were an active HOA at one time, this number would be the percentage stated in the covenants. It's always safe to use that number in any case.

Follow items 2-7 above.

The other way to get the signatures is to advertise a neighborhood meeting, by flyer, etc., and try to get the required signatures at the meeting. Tamarron did that a few years ago and got the majority that way. The hardest thing is to get the neighborhood to support enforcing the covenants after they have been out of force for any length of time.
