Amendments to the Code of Regulations

At the 2018 Muirfield Association annual meeting, residents voted on nine separate amendments, either in person or by proxy. Each amendment was passed by a majority vote. These Amendments were filed with the Delaware County Recorder's office on June 5, 2018 at Book 1574, Page 2309 et seq. and with the Franklin County Recorder's Office on June 11, 2018, at Instrument No. 201806110077226. The Amendments became binding and effective on the date they filed.

A copy of the Amendments should be filed with your copy of the Declaration (Warranty Deed) and Bylaws (Code of Regulations). These documents must be passed on to any future buyer of your home.

Note: although the text of the amendments is exactly the same for both Franklin and Delaware counties, we were required to file the document with each county individually. Consequently, there is one document for those who have a Muirfield home in Delaware County and another for those whose Muirfield home is in Franklin County. However, these documents contain the same information.
