The West Winds ECC Application Form, with appropriate fee (and compliance deposit if required) and required information, must be postmarked by the 10th of the month in order for the application to be discussed at the WWECC monthly meeting. The WWECC meets on the third Wednesday of each month from 5:30 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. to conduct a preliminary review of applications received by the deadline (i.e., postmarked by the 10th of the month). At 6:00 p.m. the meeting is open to the public for discussion of his/her application request if the homeowner wishes to attend (the homeowner is to notify the WWECC at least five days in advance of the meeting in order to be placed on the agenda). WWECC meeting location is the same as the WW BoD meeting location. The application form and information form can be found on the Membership Portal.
