About the Referendum

Why do we need to have a referendum?

The 2024 Restrictive Covenants Referendum is intended to update and modernize our highest-level governing documents: the Restrictive Covenants, also known as the Declaration of Restrictions. 

The Board of Directors is still drafting the details of the questions that will be included in a referendum slated to launch on March 6. Feedback from the Town Hall will be taken into consideration. The final language will be approved at the February 21 Board Meeting.

Referendum Content

Capital Contribution

DRAFT QUESTION 1 

Shall the Membership approve a Capitalization Fee, to be assessed when a private lot is purchased as a “buy in” for new members? 

This is a one-time fee paid upon purchase of a property in LOW, used towards LOWA’s capital expenses. 

Short Term Rental Restrictions

DRAFT QUESTION 2

Shall the Membership restrict short-term rentals, which is defined as any rental lease for fewer than 30 days? 
This restriction would only apply to business-like short-term rentals like Airbnb's. 

Assessing Charges for Violations

DRAFT QUESTION 2

Shall the Membership establish Board authority to assess charges for violation of the Declarations (Restrictive Covenants), and Rules and Regulations as authorized and limited in the Virginia Code? 
This amendment would allow LOWA to once again enforce lot violations and violations of the rules and regulations, including on common areas.
