Please sign this petition to inform Charlie Botswick & Serenbe HOA that you do not agree with the plan of the Serenbe Stables to be sold OR converted into a hotel, event venue, or offices for Charlie Botswick's (of Brightwater Homes) Development Team.

Those who board horses were recently informed of a plan to convert a vital part of the stables ecosystem into office space for the development staff for the investment group who have recently become the driving force in the day-to-day operations at Serenbe. In response to this revelation, the boarders met with representatives of the new development group. Several issues detailed below were raised that will affect the community to varying degrees:

1. We were told that the property is actually available for sale and that there are various parties interested in repurposing the barn, a structure that was originally specifically designed as an equine facility, into something as yet unnamed but entirely different. They specifically mentioned possibilities including a hotel or event venue. Either of those alternatives in that specific location would undoubtedly disrupt the lives of those of us who live in this community.

2. We were informed that the plan is to purchase a large pre-fabricated outdoor shed from Home Depot to place in the parking lot of the stables, assuring this could be erected in only a few days. Such a plan will unquestionably turn perhaps the most idyllic architectural element of Serenbe into an eyesore. Moreover, it speaks to a willingness to cheapen the brand of Serenbe by cutting corners and sacrificing quality and authenticity in order to reduce cost and save time. This threatens to degrade the personal financial investment that each one of us have made in the community and therefore the brand by choosing to live here. 

When asked if the residents who have invested in this community and who would be significantly impacted by such a change would be considered, the response was that if a significant number of residents raised questions or have concerns, that they would be heard. So we ask you, please sign this petition to let developer Charlie Botswick & Serenbe HOA that you do not want the Stables to be sold OR converted into a hotel, event venue or offices — and that it needs to remain untouched.
