    My daughter is severely allergic to grass. She has also been diagnosed with severe eczema and is autistic so sensory is a big thing for her. The HOA Board has been explicitly clear that for aesthetic reasons every house is to have LIVE grass in the front yard. The CC&R’s do not state that we MUST have grass. It only stated that households must MAINTAIN their front yards. According to the ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) I have the legal right to make the proper adjustments as needed for my daughter to properly enjoy our front yard without harm to her. Does the board have a legal right to deny my ARC application to put stone paving in my front yard? I don’t know if this matters but this is in Clark County Washington, in the city of Camas.

    Hi shadow5,

    Your HOA should make reasonable accommodations for your daughter if she falls under the ADA. Does the board know about her disability? I would consider letting them know. And if they still deny your application, you can file a complaint with the Department of Justice or your local authority on ADA. In Washington, it would be wsdotada@wsdot.wa.gov or call toll free 855-362-4ADA (4232).

    Hope this helps.
