HFVOA Governing Documents

Governing Documents Primer

The governing documents primer explains the various documents which detail how HOAs are established and operate. This primer was put together by the Community Association Law Group.

Filed Governing Documents

HFVOA 2016 Amended Articles of Incorporation

The Articles of Incorporation establish the corporate structure of HFVOA. In 2016, HFVOA amended the Articles of Incorporation for consistency with other governing documents. The Articles of Incorporation are filed with the Oregon Secretary of State.


The CC&Rs define the covenants, conditions, and restrictions for the property use of all lots in the subdivision called Hawthorn Farm Village. All property in the development of Hawthorn Farm Village (HFV) is subject to the Oregon Planned Community Act (ORS 94) and to Hawthorn Farm Village Declaration of Covenants, Conditions, and Restrictions (alternatively referred to as the Declaration or the CC&Rs). Each Lot Owner agreed to the obligations and restrictions when they agreed to purchase their lot. The law, covenants, conditions, and restrictions run with the land.


The HFVOA Bylaws define the operating guidelines and processes for the Association. The HFVOA Bylaws are recorded with Washington County Oregon.
