Tim.... CC&Rs are Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions. Covenants, conditions and restrictions are limitations and rules placed on a property by a government body, builder, developer, neighborhood association and / or homeowner association. All condos and townhomes have CC&Rs; however, so do most planned unit developments and established neighborhoods. Developers may record a CC&R document to control the nature and character of a property development for the benefit of future owners. For example, a covenant or condition may require a property owner to maintain the property according to aesthetic guidelines, such as how high you can build fences or what colors you can paint an improvement. Other restrictions may be for the following, (not all inclusive)
•Parking Restrictions
•Common area restrictions
•Land use restrictions
CUP is the acronym for Conditional Use Permit. In each zoning district there are permitted uses and conditional uses. Conditional uses require the approval of a Conditional Use Permit by the Planning and Zoning Commission. This is a process that can often take three to four months and require filing forms and appearing before Planning Commission meetings. Good luck Tim....
