Take immediate action to rectify pool closure at Sun Ridge in Flemington, New Jersey.

On June 15th, members of Sun Ridge's HOA received an email from community manager Debbie Haraburda indicating the swimming pool would be closed until further notice.The email specifically noted "Eric the Supervisor has told me that they are having a lot of problems with this lab shutting pools down that are fine and they are looking into this. The laws changed drastically this year."Upon further investigation, residents discovered that the Hunterdon County Department of Public Safety Division of Public Health Services Department had issued several warnings and that Sun Ridge had multiple opportunities to address the situation.The pool being closed on Father's Day weekend was problematic for many families who pay HOA fees to keep that pool properly maintained. Had the repeated failures to pass inspection been addressed in a competent, timely manner, this would not have happened.We, the residents, request the following:1. An immediate, public update on the status of the pool's failure to pass inspection this season, including a detailed list of dates and reasons for failed lab tests 2. An immediate, public update on what precisely has been done to address the pool's failure to pass inspection and when we can expect to use the amenity again3. A prorated rebate on HOA fees commensurate with the length of time the pool is closed4. An investigation into the handling of pool-related matters in our community, including:(a) addressing a misleading-at-best email to our residents from a community manager whose communications we should be able to rely upon as thorough and accurate.(b) replacing pool management provider or requiring performance improvement of current pool management service(c) clarifying who, ultimately, is responsible for ensuring our pool is safe and has satisfactorily passed inspections (i.e., Ms. Harrabuda, "Eric the Supervisor," someone else)(d) providing residents, via email and/on on the website, with access to current status of pool-related inspections throughout the season

Walker Lakshores Landowners Assoc. Board: Stop Suing Non Members!

Did you know that you can be sued by a home owners association even if you’re not in the HOA? I didn't. I thought there were such things as property rights for taxpaying home owners. Did you know that you can be sued by an HOA for an amount of money that even their own budget cannot support? I didn't. I thought they'd have to actually prove money was due. Did you know that if you can't afford to defend a case against you Pennsylvania has now given the HOAs the right to foreclose on you? Scary scenario right? My property is in a development known as Maple Park in Shohola PA, and has never been in any HOA. The deeds support that I'm not in any HOA. Even the judges rule that I'm not in any home owner association. Apparently, the only people that think I am in this home owners association is the home owners association themselves. I receive favorable judgments each time we go to court, but, this HOA just appeals. As of May 2017 this HOA is appealing me to the Superior Court of Pennsylvania because they don't like the judgments they've gotten even though THEY have asked the courts to continue this case!   A thorough explanation of this story is on this website: http://www.shoholapa.com/ Please sign this petition and show this HOA that We The People will not give up our property rights and they should be ashamed to call themselves Americans!

Petition for a GreyHawk special Board Meeting

Greyhawk is a great community with an ongoing problem. Our current system of governing has lousy communication. Over and over, I hear from residents who want to know why a thing is happening in our community or who decided that such and such should happen. The answer is simple... our board of directors should meet regularly and the community should be invited to attend. MOST communities already have this!This petition below was drafted by Nick Petrov when he was fined and could not get clear communication about what was going on. Regardless of how you feel about fines, we should all agree that Board should be approachable and should have ways to communicate its workings to the residents. Below we resolve that the undersigned home owners of Grey Hawk hereby call for: ___________________________________________________ For special meeting of the members of Gray Hawk at Lake Polo’s Home Owners Association We would like to request a special meeting as per Article 3, Section 2 of the Declaration of Covenants, Conditions, Restorations, Easements and Assessments for Grey Hawk at Lake Polo to (1) discuss the BOD’s and Parklane RES’ current management style, (2) establish clear landscaping guidelines and assessment practices and (3) request a financial/operational audit. Additional items to be discussed and voted on: - Week/Date of inspections (to be communicated in advance)- Violations to be referenced to the specific article in the Covenants- Photos of the violation(s) to be made available to homeowners- Time to correct the violation(s) to be specified but no less than 2 weeks.- Means of communicating violations. (First and second notices to be sent through regular mail. Third and final violation notices to be sent by Certified Mail).- Level of detail for correcting violations to be provided. (Specific instructions to be given on what changes need to be made)- Monthly/weekly updates of activities in the community to be communicated to all residents via email/virtually- Board of Directors to hold 3 quarterly meetings open to residents with mandatory Question and Answer session at the end of each meeting. (Closed meetings to be announced in advance)- Existing Facebook platform to be open to BOD and utilized for improved communications with the community’s residents.

Save the Wilder Woods' Little Free Library

The Flowers Village HOA board has stated that the Little Free Library in Wilders Woods needs to be taken down because it violates the covenants (See email below). We will be petitioning the architectural board on Tuesday and would like to show them that the 'hood supports the library. Email from Kohn-Ell Good afternoon Adrian and Kristine, The board has reviewed your application for the free library and unfortunately it has been denied for the following reasons: Article IV Architectural/Landscaping Section 4.1 which states: 1.       This was not submitted prior to installation. Article IV Architectural/Landscaping Section 4.1 which states4.1.         General. No structure, thing or improvement shall be placed, erected, installed or posted on the Properties and no improvements or other work (including staking, clearing, excavating, grading and other site work, exterior alterations of existing improvements, or planting or removing of landscaping) shall take place within the Properties, except in compliance with this Article and the Design Guidelines. All such guidelines and procedures set forth in this Article and the Design Guidelines shall be in accordance with the master plan for Flowers Plantation and The Village @ Flowers Plantation to which reference is hereby made. Any Owner may remodel, repaint or redecorate the interior of structures located on the Unit without approval hereunder. However, modifications to the interior of porches, patios and similar structures visible from outside the residential dwelling located on a Unit shall be subject to approval. This Article shall not apply to activities of the Declarant or its affiliates, nor to improvements to the Common Area made by or on behalf of the Association. The failure to comply with the requirements in this Article IV shall entitle the Declarant and/or the Board to exercise the remedies set forth in Section 7.5 of this Declaration 2.       This promotes operating business from home which is not allowed per the covenants.  Exhibit C Initial Use Restrictions and Rules Section 2 (c ) which states: (c) Business.

The board has asked that you remove the free library at this time.  Thank You, Bonnie Donleycott architectural-info@kohnell.com
