On February 17, the Lone Tree City Council will vote on an ordinance intended to encourage more condominium communities in Lone Tree. The proposed ordinance removes an association’s right to a jury trial in a construction defect case and instead mandates arbitration. The proposed ordinance also attempts to take away the governance authority of boards by requiring a majority of all owners to approve construction defect litigation. As we all know these types of restraints on associations do little more than make lawsuits virtually impossible, thereby giving shoddy developers an open door to building defective condominiums. If you live in Lone Tree or if you care about the rights of your association we encourage you to contact the Lone Tree City Council Members to let them know your opinion and ask them to vote against the ordinance.
