Resolutions / Polices / Rules or Regulations

A resolution is a method of formalizing a decision made by a homeowner association's Board of Directors. Resolutions are used to adopt policies, procedures, rules and regulations or to clarify ambiguous terms in the governing documents. 

A policy is a standard adopted by the board that sets out the beliefs, values and objectives that causes the homeowner association to act, such as a collection policy, an enforcement policy, or a conduct of meetings policy. A homeowner association's policies communicate, organize, and focus the resources of the homeowner association.

Rule or Regulation 
A homeowner association's Board of Directors adopts rules, regulations or guidelines to define desired behaviors and to set limits on allowable uses of the common elements and homes, architectural changes and the behavior of residents and guests. Some typical examples of rules include pets, parking, noise and use of HOA facilities.
