I'm Doug, and I'm very sorry to hear of your situation. My goal is to provide you with excellent service today.
I will presume that some owners are violating the CC&R's and the HOA is not enforcing the rules.
Your first avenue of approach will be to file a formal complaint with the HOA board, and ask that they find that certain owners are in violation of the By-laws and immediately take measures to stop the continued violations, and that they sanction/fine the homeowners for the violations and follow up by liening the properties of the violators if necessary.
Failing that you may institute a private suit against the owner and seek the help of the court to enforce the covenants of the HOA as you have a legal interest in seeing that they are upheld. The court can then order that the structure be removed or some made to conform to the HOA covenants in place.
The last option that you have, and I say last because it is likely to be the most expensive, is to actually file suit against the Board itself for failing to enforce the covenants. The allegation in the Complaint will read something like this:
As a result of the intentional failure of the Association to enforce the declarations and the guidelines and discharge its duties, as a result of the association’s failure to act, and as a result of the association’s defective and negligent performance, the (insert your associations name here) community has been degraded.
These sorts of suits have been successful in courts across the US.
You will need to seek the help of a Homeowners Association attorney who handles community association law. Here are a couple of links to Utah based attorneys who handle this rather specialize area of law:
