210 OVERNIGHT STAY RULE
R-Ranch POA has previously litigated the validity, reasonableness, and enforceability of its recreational purpose (Siskiyou County Superior Court Case Number 48680, Third D.C.A. Cass Number C020577), and prevailed both in the trial court and in the appellate court in that case. In that case, the Courts held that R-RANCH is a solely recreational community, that residence or domicile on the Ranch constitutes a violation of the Ranch’s governing documents and rules, that a use limitation of 210 overnight stays is reasonable, and that the Board of Directors has the right to enforce the recreational purpose of the ranch by requiring that Owners to vacate the Ranch at the end of 210 overnight stays.
