Canyon Lake POA Board to hold special meeting to discuss political flag rules

The board has decided to move toward resolution in two steps. The first will be to enact emergency rule changes related to clarifying that the rule applies to signs, posters, flags, and banners, defining the term “political signs”, including their placement on watercraft, and illustrating the terms “obscene material or fighting words.”

If enacted, the rules will become effective immediately and remain in place for 120 days or until they are made permanent by the normal process. Other changes are currently under review and may be presented by the board at a later time.

 

Canyon Lake homeowners are invited to attend the virtual meeting at vm.clpoa.net. The meeting will also stream live on the POA’s Facebook page.

Members may submit comments via email on the day of the meeting or during the meeting at [email protected] Written comments must include name and tract and lot. Members may also chat request through Zoom during the meeting. Member comments are limited to three minutes.

Controversy related to the number, location, and content of political signs, flags, posters, and banners has become an issue in Canyon Lake, particularly during this past election cycle. Strong opinions continue to be sent to the board by email and were expressed on both sides of the issues during the February 9 board meeting. They include wide-ranging opinions on the duration of permissible display, their location on golf carts, and their content. Restriction on the display of the American Flag is not an issue and is protected by law.
