"HOA" is the acronym for Home Owners Association.
There is some overlap between the CC&Rs, Bylaws, Rules and Regulations, and Architectural Guidelines. These are the four sets of documents that we all abide by. It is the HOA Board's duty to uphold these documents and residents should expect that to be done. The CC&Rs and Bylaws are virtually impossible to change; the Rules and Architectural guidelines can and will be modified from time to time.
The documents below are something everyone should have read at least once just to be familiar with the do's and don'ts up here, also to know what their rights as members of the TOT Community Association are.
- Rules and Regulations
- The community "do's and don'ts" including home/lot rental, personal conduct & noise, animals, vehicles and parking, amenity usage, RV storage, trash collection, lot care, and more.
- New Resident Info
- All new residents need to complete the 'New Resident Application' form and then return it to the Manager's Office which is located on Navajo adjacent to the Community Center.
- Architectural and Landscaping Guidelines
- Specs include everything from setback requirements to storage sheds to utility meters to contractor & sub-contractor requirements and more.
- Plant and Landscape Guide
- In response to homeowners' inquiries, the ARCS committee has compiled sources to suggested guidelines for landscaping in our enchanted Santa Monica Mountains.
- Home Exterior Color Palette
- The TOT Color Palette has been developed to encourage homeowner individuality using local architectural styles as a guide while offering a sophisticated range of hues that compliment our community and canyon environs.
- Construction and New House Installation Guidelines

- Architectural Change Form
- If you are making changes to your existng home or property, you need to submit the following (as needed): plot plans, materials, colors, drawings or renderings of proposed changes, measurements, etc. These will vary depending on the proposed change. Prior to work being done, you may also need to notify neighbors if your change effects them (i.e. blocking a view, additions near a common lot line).
Modifications or additions that would require the Architectural Change Form include: extending a driveway, planting a tree, building a deck or pergola, adding a storage shed or walkway or fence, painting the home's exterior, etc.
This form is available by visiting the on site Manager's Office. To reach the office call (818) 346-9252. Hours are Monday- Friday 9:00- 5:00PM.
- C C & Rs
- The CC&Rs, Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions, are the governing documents of the community. All HOAs have a set. They are state approved documents adopted at the time of our conversion to condominium style ownership. They are legal binding documents that govern how things are run by the Association. They cover the description of land improvements, membership in the HOA, meetings of the HOA, voting rights, Board positions and duties, maintenance assessments, use restrictions, general provisions, utilities, destruction of improvements, suspensions of rights, breeches, bonds, and agreements and amendments between the seller and the buyer in 2000.
