  • By-Laws: Time for review and update?

In reading the By-laws one will see points written that either no longer applies are not fully followed or are vague.  There is one issue in particular that gets brought up regularly: Plot Heritance.  Who, when and how?  By-laws say Council will update by-laws but a small committed group would be of great value in presenting suggested changes.  We are looking for by-law review and update team volunteers.  Delivery timeline will to be set by the team.
