“Opt-Out Provision. Condominium associations may opt out and self-perform an enforcement program for code of conduct violations under LDC section 34–2393 not unlike the methods and procedures at LDC Sec. 2394 upon making application to the town manager or designee and paying the required fee for each building for which exemption is sought.” This opt–out provision applies to the entire condo building – it is not available for a subset of units within a building. To be considered for the opt out provision, the condominium must submit a letter in the exact format provided below and one registration form for each building.
