PLEASE SCROLL DOWN FOR IMPORTANT UPDATES

 

The island is looking better and better every day. Your Board of Directors and associated Committees are hard at work planning for the common area rebuild and assisting owners with their needs. We’ve put together this website as a resource you can use to help stay informed on the status of the Key Allegro community. We have also established a Information Center at the Allegro House located at 29 Mazatlan.

On this website you will find helpful links to Key Allegro deed restrictions, signup for email updates, download important forms regarding building permits, find information on security and contractors, and much more.

 

We have made great strides in the past several months to begin planning for the rebuild of the Island. Countless hours have been spent by the Board and owner volunteers. These efforts have helped clean up street debris, coordinate with FEMA on removal of structure debris, and worked with officials to begin the process of cleaning canals and waterways.

 

It will take many years to return us to normal. Yet we have full confidence with our strong Board and our supportive homeowners, we will rebuild Key Allegro greater than ever before.

Important Announcement Regarding Amendments to the CC&Rs

 

October 7th Update:

 

Over the last 10 months, we have provided you with a draft of the Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions, also known as CC&Rs, that govern the Key Allegro Canal and Property Owners Association. The draft CC&Rs consolidate our documents, incorporate changes that are needed to ensure we are compliant with Texas laws regarding HOA governance, and clarify certain terms.

 

On Saturday, September 14, your Board of Directors hosted a Town Hall at the Allegro House where we reviewed the draft document and answered questions from members. We had a great conversation with 21 members attending the Town Hall.

 

We also formed a Covenants Advisory Committee to seek member input and advance the CC&Rs document for Board review and a member vote at the 2020 February Annual Meeting. Members include: 

Bob James, Chairman
William Key
Paul Odom
Sharon Plant
Stephen Portner
Lynn Powers
Dave Foster

As a reference, the following is a breakdown of the five documents that govern KACPOA (in priority order of precedence). Texas Property Code takes precedence to all of these documents. 

 

1. Articles of Incorporation

 

These are the legal documents that formed the KACPOA back in 1962 and have been amended from time to time over the years.

 

There are no changes being recommended to the Articles of Incorporation.

 

 

2. Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions (also known as the CC&Rs)

 

This is an amended and consolidated draft version of the CCRs that, once approved by the membership, will be officially recorded and covers the rights and obligations of the KACPOA to members and vice versa.

 

These cover:

– property use restrictions

– maintenance obligations for the HOA and members

– rule enforcement and dispute resolution

– assessment obligations

– and more

 

Many of the provisions in this document are in our current Deed Restrictions which has governed the community for decades. The new CC&Rs will be reviewed by the Covenants Advisory Committee, who will include any necessary changes based on member input.

 

The CC&Rs will then be voted on by the Board of Directors with a goal to advance to a member vote of a quorum of the members attending the February 2020 Annual Meeting.

 

Access a redlined draft of the CC&Rs here which have incorporated changes based on member input to date.

 

 

3. Bylaws

 

The Bylaws, which are a legal binding document that has been officially recorded, covers the “how”, and established the structure of day-to-day governance.

 

These cover:

– process for nominating and electing members

– number of members serving

– length of board service

– meeting frequency

– duties and responsibility of the board

– frequency of elections

– and more

 

Changes to the Bylaws will be made if there exist conflicts between the CCRs or Texas Property Code and the Bylaws. 

 

4. Design Code

 

Architectural standards (aka “architectural guidelines, “design code,” etc.) set forth an association’s policies and procedures regulating a homeowner’s ability to make architectural improvements and modifications to the homeowner’s separate interest, as well as to common area and exclusive use common area.

 

Architectural standards often regulate exterior design elements such as building heights, roof pitches, elevations, and landscaping materials.

 

The Design Code will be voted on by the Board of Directors at the regular board meeting Monday, October 21 at 8:30 a.m.

5. Community Manual

 

Our community’s rules & regulations are a catch-all for the things that aren’t covered in the Bylaws or CC&Rs. These are often the rules that might need revising over time due to changes in the community. For example, our HOA might have a rule that states that no members are allowed in the community pool after 9:00 p.m. This rule would not be a part of the community’s CC&Rs because it might need to change seasonally.

 

Rules & Regulations can be changed by KACPOA board vote with review by the members of the community. Traditionally, the Board will adopt a rule then send a notice to the community members who will have 30 days to review it. After 30 days, the board will review the comments and concerns of members, considering the feedback in the final decision.

 

There are no changes being recommended to the Community Manual.

KACPOA Board Completes Belaire Environmental Bathymetric Study of Canals and Bulkheads

 

As shared in an earlier newsletter sent to all KA homeowners, in late 2018, the KACPOA board made the decision that without good data, we could not make sound decisions for our owners regarding future canal dredging and bulkhead repairs. For many years, this and previous boards have struggled to make equitable decisions on how to pragmatically tackle these issues.

 

A well respected, local firm, Belaire Environmental, was contracted to conduct a bathymetric study on all Key Allegro canals to determine the depth and condition of our system of canals, and some more limited assessment of the general condition bulkheads in our community.

 

That work has been completed and we want to give you the results of that study.

 

In summary, many canals will need dredging in order to meet the requirements spelled out in the community property covenants, and many individual homeowner bulkheads need some type of repair and upgrade. Dredging of canals is the responsibility of the KACPOA, financially supported by all homeowners, while bulkhead upgrades are the responsibility of each individual homeowner.

 

The KACPOA will be developing a long-range plan, to probably cover the next ten years, to make the improvements and fixes required with the data the bathymetric study has provided and how to fund these major projects.
