Pursuant to the General Declaration of Covenants and Restrictions, the Association has the authority to develop reasonable Rules and Regulations, including Architectural Guidelines and Private Property Maintenance Standards, and to enforce such Rules and Regulations, the Declaration, and Bylaws. The Rules and Regulations shall apply to all property owners, residents, occupants, visitors, guests, and tenants. These Covenants and Restrictions are accepted by property owners upon purchase of the property and are an obligation of property ownership and/or residency. The General Declaration of Covenants and Restrictions that govern Fripp Island take precedence over any conflicting language that may appear in the Rules and Regulations, Private Property Maintenance Standards, or Architectural Guidelines. It is important to note that while Fripp Island is a private community, owners and guests remain responsible to adhere to all existing federal, state, local laws, regulations, and ordinances. This includes any and all environmental and wildlife regulatory matters.
