New Administrative Citation Program

 In an effort to reduce the high amount of code violation and CC&R violation complaints received from residents and observed by SSCSD staff, and to increase the high standard of living residents expect in our community, the SSCSD has created an administrative citation program.

It is the SSCSD's mission to work in partnership with the residents of Stallion Springs to promote health and safety and to maintain our high community standards.  The goal of this program is not to punish but to gain voluntary compliance and motivate residents to quickly resolve violations.

The SSCSD hopes to accomplish this mission by administering a fair and unbiased compliance program to correct violations of property conditions and land use requirements; provide a uniform, consistent yet flexible procedure to insure that all residents are equally represented; to minimize the necessity for legal action by allowing ample opportunity for voluntary compliance and correction and responding promptly to complaints regarding structures and/or conditions which present a health, safety hazard or nuisances to our residents.

Most violators will receive a verbal and/or written warning and a specified length of time to resolve the stated violation(s).  Of course, each violation shall be addressed on a case by case basis.
