Sub-Associations

Board Of Directors & Meetings

The Board of Directors for the Daybreak Community Association is made up of both developer and resident representatives. Open Board Meetings are an opportunity for residents to learn about the Association and bring information to the attention of the Board. Please see our meetings page for a list of upcoming Open Board Meetings.
Committees
Committees
The Daybreak Community Association has several standing committees made of resident members. There are also Ad-Hoc committees that are formed from time to time to work on specific projects and are then disbanded with the project is complete. The permanent committees are Budget and Finance, Covenants, Design Review, Lake Village Waterside Club Advisory and Common Area Advisory committees.
Governance
Governance
The governing documents are deed restrictions recorded against each property in Daybreak and make up the legal documents that establish Daybreak as a planned community and govern its operation. To protect property values and preserve the character of the community, the legal documents provide for the establishment of architectural standards and the development of rules that govern property use within the community. You are encouraged to read all of the governing documents received at or before closing. 

Community Standards

Covenants
Covenants
The ultimate goal of covenants staff is to keep the community beautiful through compliance and resolving owner violations. See the Covenants Page for common covenants reminders for trash, pets, leasing, parking and more.
Design Review
Design Review
All landscaping and exterior architectural modifications must be approved by the Design Review Committee before they are installed to ensure they adhere to community standards. If you plan to make any modifications to the exterior of your home, compete a digital Design Review application.
Leasing Your Property?
Leasing
If you are looking to lease out your property please refer to our Leasing Policies. Residents must reside in their home for one year before renting the property and leases must be a minimum of 30 days.
Home Businesses
If you are planning on operating a business from your home in Daybreak, please fill out one of the below applications to gain approval from the board. Email the complete form to kbarrett@ccmcnet.com. 

Park Strip Tree

Does My Park Strip Tree Have Warranty?
The park strip trees have been planted in your park strip by a representative of the Developer. Once the home is purchased, it is the responsibility of the homeowner to care for the trees to ensure their survival. Daybreak Communities does not offer a warranty or tree replacement because the care of the trees falls to the homeowner after installation.  See our Park Strip Tree News Article for more information.
