La Ventana Ranch Owners’ Association (“the ROA”) appeals from the trial court’s final judgment in this dispute arising from variances granted to certain homeowners within the La Ventana community, allowing for the installation of private water wells and propane tanks. The ROA contends that the trial court erred in declaring that certain water well variance documents were valid and enforceable. Homeowners William D. Davis, Hatton Revocable Trust, Jeffrey L. Burnett, John Czop, Judy Czop, Kenneth R. Hamburger, Maria L. Hamburger, Mark E. Lich, Steven Malone, Robert H. Hughes, Kay C. Hughes, Manley W. Crider, Anna M. Crider, Allen Butt, Cindy Butt, Sharon M. Davis, Michael R. Perdue, Phyllis M. Finnemore, Gregory Alec Gowins, Patrick C. Harkins, Sandra K. Harkins, and Jill R. Davis (collectively, “the Individual Homeowners”) cross-appeal, arguing that the trial court erred in determining that members of the community’s architectural committee violated a fiduciary duty to the members of the ROA by granting the variances. The Individual Homeowners further contend that the trial court erred in declaring the propane tank variance documents to be invalid. Interim La Ventana, LLC (“Interim-LV”) appeals from the portion of the trial court’s judgment awarding attorney’s fees. We affirm the trial court’s judgment in part, reverse and render in part, and remand for a redetermination of the appropriate amount of attorney’s fees to be awarded.
