Moved into the home June 1st 2009
I was voted onto the HOA Board of Directors as Secretary/Treasurer Sept. 2009
I have had ZERO fines, NEVER been late on my dues since moving in.
The Gadsden flag went up early 2010
I resigned from the board July 2010
NOTHING was said, remark made, hinted at, asked of regarding my flag until 8/5/10 when it was labeled "debris" and a CC&R violation under the "garbage" section.
I appealed the CC&R violation, was not given written notice when I was to be heard (as per the appeal process in the CC&R's).
The appeal was "denied" with no reason given, and it the denial letter states my "architectural request" was denied. I never requested a architectural design change, I appealed a CC&R violation.
When asked by ABC15's Brian Webb for a comment, the management company stated they have a lawyer. Why? I have emailed/called NUMEROUS times to try and talk to the community manager to try and educate her on the historical significance of this flag to no avail. I guess its easier to lawyer up and intimidate with the threat of LEGAL proceedings before a fine has been leveled against me, or I have the proper avenue to lay out my case.
more to come....
