Hello,We maintain a Decision Log that describes all the decisions we have made as an HOA in a General Meeting. If someone needs to know what a policy is and it's not in the Master Deed or the Bylaws, one can find it in the decision log. And basically, if the would-be decision is in neither of those documents, then we actually have not made it.

But I think you?re on the right track. At Cornerstone, we?re working on the same problem, and have tentatively concluded that the bylaws (hard to change) should be as simple and general as possible. As much as possible, we want to govern ourselves via the ?policies? (which other, more conventional HOAs would call ?rules and regulations?). The policies are relatively easy to change, as community experience and values evolve. Just keep in mind ? It?s the "fine print" that really counts; the fine print is where everything truly important is encoded.
