A statute’s limitation

The statute’s limitation on maximum assessment increases ONLY applies to planned communities and NOT condominiums.  That statute says the maximum assessments in PLANNED COMMUNITIES can be raised more than 20% without a vote of the members.

Statutes can trump association documents

When the statute says “Notwithstanding” it means the statute trumps the association’s documents.  When the statute says “Subject to” it means the association’s documents trump the statute.

Rogues directors can be disqualified

Rogue directors can be disqualified (i.e. effectively removed) from serving as a board member if they violate the Articles or Bylaws.  For example, a director refuses to sign a Code of Conduct.  The Bylaws require all directors sign the Code of Conduct.  Said director is thus disqualified from serving on the board and his vacancy can be filled by another member.
