Mixed-use common interest developments are communities in which some of the units or lots are used for residential purposes and others as businesses. Mixed-use developments are typically structured as multi-story condominium projects with ground-floor commercial units. As with residential communities, mixed-use developments benefit from periodic governing document updates, and updates are now particularly important given recent Senate Bill 323 ("SB 323").
My update service and the update process for mixed-use developments is the same as a residential community, and includes every document and service provided through my SB 323 update service. Nevertheless, mixed-use communities can face unique management and governance challenges. These primarily involve:
1. The fair allocation of costs between the residents and businesses, such as utility, insurance, and maintenance costs.
2. The reconciliation of use and nuisance issues, such as noise, cooking odors, customer parking, and security.
3. Carefully-structured SB 323 compliant board and committee representation to ensure these issues and others are fairly resolved and that neither use-type dominates or negatively impacts the other.
My comprehensive update questionnaire provides extensive suggestions regarding modern mixed-use best practices your association may wish to adopt and permits your board to provide detailed feedback regarding your community's unique needs, including those posed by business-resident interactions. As with residential updates, I typically offer the lowest fee, most comprehensive suite of services, and fastest draft turnaround times.
If you have questions about the update process or my services, please review my frequently asked questions or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to request a consultation. Otherwise, please contact me today to request an update proposal.
