10.1 Notices for all Purposes

Any notice permitted or required to be delivered under the provisions of these Bylaws may be delivered either personally or by mail unless otherwise provided in these Bylaws. If delivery is made by mail, any such notice shall be deemed to have been delivered three (3) days after a copy has been deposited in the United States mail, first-class postage prepaid, addressed as set forth in Section 2.4 herein.

10.2 Waiver

The failure of the Board of Directors in any one or more instances to insist upon the strict performance of any of the terms, covenants, conditions or restrictions of the Declaration, or of these Bylaws, or any rules and regulations established by the Board of Directors, or to serve any notice or to institute any action, shall not be construed as a waiver or a relinquishment for the future of such term, covenant, condition or restriction, but such term, covenant, condition or restriction shall remain in full force and effect. The receipt by the Board of Directors of any assessment from a Member, with knowledge of any such breach, shall not be deemed a waiver of such breach, and no waiver by the Board of Directors of any provision hereof shall be deemed to have been made unless expressed in writing and signed by the Board of Directors.

10.3 Limitation of Liability

To the extent permitted by law, each Director or Association committee member or officer, or the Declarant exercising the powers of the Board, and their respective heirs and successors, shall be indemnified by the Association against all expenses and liabilities, including attorneys' fees, reasonably incurred by or imposed in connection with any proceeding to which he/she may be a party, or in which he/she may become involved; by reason of being or having held such position at the time such expenses or liabilities are incurred, except in such cases wherein such person is adjudged guilty of willful misconduct or gross negligence or a knowing violation of law in the performance of his/her duties, and except in such cases where such person has participated in a transaction from which said person will personally receive a benefit in money, property or services to which said person is not legally entitled; provided, that, in the event of a settlement, the indemnification shall apply only when the Board approves such settlement and reimbursement as being in the best interest of the Association. Nothing contained in this Section 10.3 shall, however, be deemed to obligate the Association to indemnify any Member who is or has been a Board member or officer of the Association with respect to any duties or obligations assumed or liabilities incurred by him/her under and by virtue of the Declaration as a Member or owner of a Lot covered thereby. This section shall not be interpreted to impose any form of liability by any implication upon the Board of Directors or upon the Association.

10.4 Interpretation:

  1. The provisions of the Declaration and these Bylaws shall be liberally construed to effectuate the purpose of creating a uniform plan for the development and operation of this Property. If any conflict arises between the terms of these Bylaws and the Declaration, the terms of the Declaration shall govern.
  2. When interpreting the Declaration and these Bylaws, the term "person" may include natural persons, partnerships, corporations, associations, and personal representatives. The singular may include the plural and the masculine may include the feminine, or vice versa, where the context so admits or requires.
  3. The Declarant is the original owner of all Lots and will continue to be deemed the owner thereof except as conveyances or documents changing such ownership regarding specifically described Lots are filed of record.
