All properties in Liberty Woodlands are owned, sold, and conveyed accordance with the Amended Declaration of Protective Covenants, Restrictions & Conditions, which was signed in 1987 and filed with Okanogan County. This document:
- creates the homeowners association
- defines who is a member
- defines voting rights for members
- creates property rights for common areas
- makes owners liable for property assessments (e.g. homeowners dues and special assessments)
- limits the purpose/use of buildings
- restricts various activities such as noise, hunting/firearms use, speed limit, chainsaws, lot signage, trash dumping, animals, etc.
- limits construction on individual properties, and
- creates the Architectural Control Committee and gives it authority to regulate improvements on lots
In addition, Liberty Woodlands Homeowners Association is governed by by-laws which were enacted in 1989. This document establishes how the HOA does business. For example, when and how it conducts its annual meeting, what the board positions are and how they are elected, the powers and duties of the board and other committees, etc.
Finally, Liberty Woodlands home and lot owners are subject to the following formally-adopted policies.
For sale signs
Effective July 1, 2014, for sale signs are subject to size restrictions. Each property may have one 8 1/2 x 11 inch flyer in a box. Any signage beyond the allowed scale or number will be removed.

To promote and maintain the harmonious environment of Liberty Woodlands, owners of trailer, campers and RV’s may park their vehicles on their lots for up to 5 hours for the purpose of cleaning and restocking. No overnight parking is allowed. One live-in trailer for builders only (not families), which is approved by the Architectural Control Committee, is permitted on a lot during active periods of construction. If construction ceases longer than 2 weeks, the trailer must be removed. Maximum length 21 feet. If more than one house is being built simultaneously, the number of trailers will be discussed and negotiated with the Committee. Once the exterior of the house is completed, the trailer must be removed.

Approved parking spaces are part of the Architectural Committee’s review process. Only approved parking spaces are allowed. No overnight parking is permitted on the streets or on community property. Driving across community property is prohibited. Enforcement of this policy is the same as for all other LWHA policies.
Violations of these policies or the covenants in the CC&Rs may result in the imposition of a fine.
