Definition of Trailers

Resolution of the Board of Directors of Paragraph 9 of the Declarations – Definition of Trailers

Adopted by the Board of Directors of Coronado Foothills Homeowners Association, Inc. on Sept. 14, 2013, on the advice of our attorney and based on recent interpretations of the law, we will be enforcing this section as follows:

Coronado Foothills, lots 1 through 500, was developed in sections with the plats recorded between 1962 and 1964. See details: The purpose of this Resolution is to clarify the meaning and intent of Paragraph 9, which is identical in each of the five sets of Original Covenants. Each Owner of a Lot, regardless of which section it is located, is bound and obligated to comply with Paragraph 9 of the above referenced Declarations of Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions for Coronado Foothills provides as follows:

There shall be no outside storage of boats, trailers, motor vehicles in stages of reconstruction, modification or rebuilding or parts of motor vehicles such as frames, bodies, engines or other parts and/or accessories; outside storage shall not include storage within the confines of a carport, screened except as to its entrance.

When the Original Declarations of Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions for Coronado Foothills were recorded, the intent of Paragraph 9 was to restrict the display of large, bulky, nonstandard conveyances. Arizona Biltmore Estates Association v. Tezak, 177 Ariz. 447, 868 P.2d 1030 (App.2003). Since the early 1960s other types of large, bulky, nonstandard conveyances have been manufactured for consumer use. Therefore, it is resolved that the term “trailers” will encompass all types of large, bulky, nonstandard conveyances, including, but not limited to recreational vehicles, campers, camping bus, coaches, fifth wheels, motor homes, toy trailers, utility trailers, semi tractor-trailers, livestock trailers, any type of unpowered vehicle that hitches to and is pulled by a powered vehicle, and any other type of vehicle used for transporting goods and materials, hauling, traveling and recreational activities. Such vehicles may be parked inside of an enclosed garage or in a carport, if the carport is screened, except as to its entrance, so that the vehicle is not visible from the sides or rear of the carport. All screening must be approved by the Design Review Committee prior to installation.

Pursuant to A.R.S. §28-2532, it is illegal to operate a vehicle on a public roadway that is not registered or does not display license plates assigned by the Arizona Department of Motor Vehicles to that vehicle for the current registration year. Therefore, any motor vehicle that is parked on a lot, if visible from the roadways within Coronado Foothills or from another lot, that does not have a current year’s registration will be deemed as inoperable and will be required to be stored either in the garage or a carport, adequately screened.
