Leeway Overlee By-Laws Amended (June 2018)

The most recent amendments to the Leeway Overlee by-laws were approved at the last general membership meeting on June 11. One amendment added language to Article II (Object) to ensure that the Association takes all reasonable steps to ensure that its actions represent the sometimes conflicting views of its membership. The other amendment added a new Article X (Letters of Support) to strengthen the Association's ability to help notify residents in cases of proposed use permit and zoning variance filings.
