|I totally agree! You could be right about the homeowners Assoc. Some of them are a little too wacky. To me, if you want to put a fence in your yard, it's your yard do it!
My parents HOA tried to ban Pick up trucks from being allowed in the sub. Some members thought it devalued their property if they had a neighbor with one. That got voted down quickly.
These homeowners associations are the dumbest thing I ever heard of!! First, you pay TAXES to live in the city, town or village. You pay TAXES to live in your state and you pay good hard earned money to buy a house. I would never live in an area that has a HOA and let them tell me what I can or can not do. I will obey the state and local laws, but would never obey a HOA law. This is just stupid. I am a dispatcher for 2 cities. Police, Fire and 911. These people who are on the board of these HOA think they run the darn city. They call and say things like, "I am on the board" and we all think yeah, big deal. They will call about kids skateboarding, roller blading or making to much noise playing basketball. Ok, I understand if it is at night and their actions can be a danger to themselves or they are making to much noise for the time of day. But, in the middle of the day during the summer, these kids are just being kids, having fun!! That is why I live where I do. Far away from the city and far away from HOA. No one tells me my grass is to long or that I have those wonderful yellow flowers called dandelions, that my house is the wrong color or God forbid, that there may be a PICKUP truck in the drive. HA, I feel like an outcast because I DON'T have a pickup truck
Of course, no HOA would EVER want me near them because of my so called "dangerous" animals
I know this was off topic, sorry. We get MANY calls like this from people who complain that someone was on their lawn. Yes, that is what the police dept is there for. If you have a problem, let the police handle it. Killing someone over your stupid grass is not worth it.
