RULES AND REGULATIONS

 

The Board of Directors of the Sandarac has established the following rules and regulations effective April 18, 2018. These rules and regulations are based upon courtesy, security, consideration of others, and common sense and are intended to ensure the safety of you, your family, and fellow occupants.

For questions regarding these Rules and Regulations, please contact the Property Manager.
