On March 22nd, 2022, the Arizona Supreme Court issued an opinion on Kalway v. Calabria Ranch HOA LLC et al. regarding the scope of permissible amendments to Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions (CC&Rs). The Court affirmed that principles of “notice” and “foreseeability” limit the scope of potential amendments to CC&Rs. A general provision for amendments (such as “these restrictions may be amended in whole or in part’) does not open the door to all possible amendments. Rather, amendments to CC&Rs are permitted only if they are foreseeable refinements to existing obligations.
The Court’s ruling only applies to amendments that impose “affirmative obligations” that create restrictions on use.
The development industry is on a hot streak, and with that Arizona cities are implementing changes to keep pace. G&B’s Land Use and Zoning group has compiled noteworthy news from across the Valley, including an update on the Scottsdale General Plan, an overview of a Landscape Maintenance text amendment in Phoenix, and information about key planning and development staffing changes.
Update: Scottsdale General Plan – City Council Deletes Proposed Desert Rural Land Use Designation
At its April 20th Work Study Session, the Scottsdale City Council directed City Staff to delete the proposed Desert Rural Land Use Designation from the City’s pending General Plan Update.
May you live in interesting times.
Are they done counting yet? (No!) Good to see that Arizona voters (and vote counters) continue to know how to weave a dramatic story full of twists and surprises. Arizona now has two Democratic US Senators, but kept the State Legislature Republican – with or without Senator McGee: still counting….
