Architectural Committee
The RBSTC community, environment and ambiance can only be maintained through involvement of members and commitment to the Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions (CC&Rs) agreed to by each home owner. The RBSTC Architectural Committee exists to ensure fair and balanced adherence to the CC&Rs as well as supporting the preservation of our beautiful community and properties.
The Architectural Committee meets every Saturday (excluding holidays) at 8:30am at the front office.
Members of the Architectural Committee are:
  • Pilar Gross * Chairperson
  • Cherie Carey

  • Evelyn Lamon
Members of the Architectural Committee are appointed by the Board of Directors on an annual basis from members who volunteer.

Governing Documents
The California Civil Code defines Governing Documents as all documents that govern a Common Interest Development such as the Rancho Bernardo Swim and Tennis Club Inc (RBSTC). The Civil Code also affords the various levels of Governing Documents an order of authority/or importance listed in order below:
The Law
The Davis Stirling Common Interest Development Act is the primary California Law that governs the actions of Common Interest Developments such as the Club.  In addition, sections of the California Civil Code, Corporations Code, and other laws generally take precedence over the Association’s documents unless the Law specifically gives precedence to specific portions of the Association’s documents.

Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions (CC&Rs) are the primary governing documents of the Association.  Just as with the US Constitution, changes to CC&Rs are not taken lightly; therefore, they are very difficult to change, may take up to 2 years or more, and may place a substantial financial burden on the Association.  The Declaration of CC&Rs define the obligations of the membership to the association and vice versa.  CC&Rs generally cover restrictions on the use of property, member and association maintenance duties, enforcement powers for failure to conform, duty to pay assessments or face penalties, duty to insure, and dispute resolution.  All property owners in the RBSTC community are bound by their CC&R’s.
CC&Rs – Original Recorded Document
There are 33 CC&R’s that are administered by the Architectural Committee. While there are over 3,000 homes within our area, we only control the CC&R's about 1,600 homes. Specific CC&Rs can be downloaded by clicking on the relevant link in the right-hand column.
