HF122 would create the Iowa Common Interest Ownership Act, which would require a management structure (bylaws, boards, meetings, etc.) for “common interest communities” defined to include cooperatives under Code Chapter 499A and horizontal property regimes under 499C with 8 or more units.
SF141 would reduce the minimum number of contiguous acres that are required for the establishment of a hunting preserve from 320 acres to 40 acres if the preserve is for game birds only. However, an application for a license to operate such a hunting preserve with an area from 40 – 320 acres must be accompanied by a game bird habitat plan approved by the DNR. Before the operator’s license can be issued the DNR must be satisfied that the plan is being followed.
