And since then, apparently, there's a financial crisis affecting the developer/s. Hey guys, you know that risk/reward equation? Man-up.
PLUS property owners appear to be having a 'dues revolt' according to a letter from the HOA rep. He adds: "The future of the development and the Club is not certain at this time." < OH REALLY? > "However, we must understand that the HOA is not a function of the Club, is not a function of the Developer"
I suppose you could argue that in pursuit of more sales, the 'principles' (earth tones, turf areas, natural looks) were altered to move more property. We certainly never agreed to them.
More: "The HOA is not a part of the Developer, is not a part of the Club, and is for the benefit of the owners of property in Spanish Oaks." But but, the HOA is completely managed by the developer. We have zero say in what they do. And they appear to do little.
We can't get a clean mail area without repeated complaints. (As if the HOA rep and manager don't notice.) A concrete curb on SO blvd has been broken for at least a year. A very large rock was moved out of place on the SO Blvd circle and the gouge resulting has been ignored for at least a very long time.
I could go on but if you live here you know inattention to detail just may be sparking some of the 'dues revolt' which is now over 6 figures of debt.
