The official home for your home, Bonney Lake Manor!

April 5, 2020 Update

The final Board would like to give everyone an update on where we are with completion of dissolution.

Dissolution was completed at the end of 2019. The Bonney Lake Manor HOA CC&Rs were amended to remove the architectural review committee (ARC), the Board as a governing body and quit claim deeds were filed on lots 1, 36 and 74 giving that property back to the owners. The owners of those lots will be contacted directly with our plans for removal of the entrance monuments.

You can read the filing of the HOA Amendment here which became official as of 27, Dec 2019:

The following is a copy of the official transmittal to the state.

Here is the official filing of the quit-claim deed:

Remaining Work – Currently on Hold

There are three orders of business left to be completed by the board at this time (in this order):

  1. Removal of entrance monuments
  2. Permission letters for releasing of liens
  3. Distribution of remaining HOA funds after the above tasks have been completed

Unfortunately because of the COVID-19 outbreak further work is considered ‘non-essential’ by the Governor and we simply cannot get contractors to come out and either render estimates or begin work on removal of the monuments. As soon as we’re able to complete the first phase we will be quickly completing the remaining work.

Release of Liens

If a lien was filed against your property and/or a garnishment of wages for failure to pay dues to the Association you can expect the following to occur and be sent to you:

  • You will receive a letter giving you permission to file a release of the lien at your expense.
  • We will work with the attorneys to file a removal of any wage garnishments.
  • Due to the failure to pay dues and the legal fees incurred by the prior Board to collect, you will not be entitled to any distribution HOA funds.

Adherence to remaining CC&Rs

This was stated in a prior update, but it bears repeating: Please remember that while the governing body no longer will exist, the CC&Rs are not being completely vacated. They are a contract and covenant with the City of Bonney Lake that was part of the agreement to create Bonney Lake Manor filed with the City of Bonney Lake and Pierce County. They are part of the legal documentation that facilitated approval of the permitting for Bonney Lake Manor to be created. While the governing enforcement body (the HOA Board) will no longer exist, those regulations will always be in place as long as these plats exist.

This means that, as homeowners everyone in this community is still expected to abide by all CC&Rs and architectural addendums (such as fence construction materials and location). You can still be civilly held accountable by the community to adhere to those. All a homeowner in the community would have to do is contact a real estate lawyer, file the paperwork and have you served for failure to comply. You would then have to appear before a judge and the judge can order you to comply. The lack of existence of the HOA does not preclude that from happening. As members of the community we still have a duty and an obligation to ourselves and our neighbors to make our community the best that it can be.

Special Note Regarding the CC&Rs and your ongoing responsibility as homeowners in Bonney Lake Manor

The CC&Rs are not being vacated. They are a contract and covenant with the City of Bonney Lake that was part of the agreement to create Bonney Lake Manor filed with the City of Bonney Lake and Pierce County. They are part of the legal documentation that facilitated approval of the permitting for Bonney Lake Manor to be created. While the governing enforcement body (the HOA Board) will no longer exist, those regulations will always be in place as long as these plats exist.

Parking Changes on 193rd in Bonney Lake Manor

This week all residents in Bonney Lake Manor with homes along 193rd and the connecting streets should have received letters from the City of Bonney Lake regarding changes to the street-level and curbside parking along 193rd and the connecting streets of 109th, 110th, 111th, 112th and 113th.

In the last couple of years the board has deal with multiple parking abuse issues. These have included:

  • Former residents having cars on their property and surrounding streets far exceeding what would reasonably be expected as acceptable by community standards and impeding other residential traffic (one resident at one point had 20 cars parked along 193rd).
  • Residents either parking in the yards of neighboring residents or allowing guests to park in said yards.
  • High school students using 193rd and adjoining streets as ‘overflow parking’ for Bonney Lake High School.

After consulting with the City of Bonney Lake on these issues (and with at least one of the situations requiring involvement of local law enforcement) the City of Bonney Lake are enacting parking restrictions on 193rd and the adjoining streets. Signs have started being posted as of the last week of February 2019. Everyone should have gotten a copy of the letter from the City. We’ve also included a copy of the letter here for Bonney Lake Manor residents.

What this means to residents in Bonney Lake Manor:

In short the following changes will occur:

From 7:00 AM to 3:00 PM only residents of Bonney Lake manor and their guests can park on the streets in the right-of-way on 193rd and the adjoining streets.

If you only park in your driveway or designated parking areas, nothing changes for you. You can continue to do so. The only exception would be if the parking area is in the right of way which means the vehicle would require a permit.

If you use the street for parking, you will be required to get a free parking permit for your car from the City of Bonney Lake. Permits can be obtained by mail or at the Bonney Lake Justice Center. Details for what is required for proof are included in the letter you can download from here.

Guests will be required to have a guest permit hanging in their car if they are parking during restricted zone hours. Each resident can have one guest permit per resident. Again, details for what is required for proof are included in the letter you can download from here.

Please feel free to contact the Board via the contact for and we’ll reply to you with any questions or concerns you might have. Thank you for doing your part to make Bonney Lake Manor a great place to live.
