What's So Hard to Get?

July 25, 2014

I don't get it.  What's so hard to understand about being an HOA Board Member?

When you read the CC & R's the duties and obligations of a Board Member are quite explicitly enumerated.  The most important of which is caring for the community's continued existence as it was designed to be.  Watching the financial health of the community and its reserve is paramount.

Over the years there will be refurbishments as buildings age.  There will be changes in technology.  These are to be expected.  Notice none of these are truly what one could categorize as "capital improvements".  Capitial improvements are things that did not exist before.   "Capital improvements  should be nixed.  To quite an old movie, "we don't need no stinkin' capital improvements."

What we do need is stricter adherence to the original documents, enforcement of the design guidelines, and sound management. 

Management seems to be quite open and doing well as far as I know.  The design guidelines keep changing....not too pleased with that as more changes dilute the look of the community. We original residents get a little annoyed with recent buyers trying to advocate changes.  Hey, Corte Bella was great ,and that's why we moved here.  Quit trying to make it something else! 

I'm going to get a lot of flak for this, but this is what my opinion is. Survery, schmurvey.  The world is trying to poll everything.  When residents get upset and want changes they will let the board know.  Stop trying to stir up discontent and feelings of inadequacy!  I hope Board Members think about this.
