There have been heated discussions about the definition of “majority.”
The CC&Rs’ first amendment changed the wording of Article XIII Section 4 (on page 41 of the current CC&R document [which is pdf page 47]) to the above words (which start on line 18 of the pdf page 51 of the current CC&R document).
The majority of lot owners and equivalent lot owners = not less than 547 votes.
1086 lots + 6 equivalent [golf club] lots = 1092 / 2 (i.e. 50%) = 546 +1 = 547 votes
