What is the difference between ordinances and association rules?

Most homeowner's associations have their own set of rules or deed restrictions, applicable to their particular subdivision. These may be comparable to Toms River Township ordinances which establish minimum standards. Association rules can be more restrictive, but not less restrictive than Township ordinances. They must be enforced by the Association, not the Township.
