HOA Blues: The Problem
HOA Blues: The Answer
HOA Blues: The Answer
As you can see in the pictures above the area around Mr. Parvin’s garden (also called Earth/soil/dirt) is entirely too dirty (ISN’T DIRT A REQUIREMENT OF A GARDEN?).
Below are the “Fines” that they are charging Mr. Parvin with:
Failure to maintain the landscaping on your lot.
This is the first of 3 that are worded different but mean the same thing. Read between the lines.
Failure to keep neatly trimmed, properly cultivated and maintained in a neat and orderly condition and in a manner designed to enhance its appearance rule.
First of all you can not keep your garden “un-trimmed”, “un-neat”, and “un-orderly” and have the ability to just go pick something out of it to eat. Second you do not get to a point in your garden where you CAN go pick things to eat if you keep it untidy and just in general un-kempt.
Maintain an annoyance or nuisance to the residence of the development in violation of Rule 6 B CC&R sectioned 74
What is annoying about growing an organic healthy garden? Mr. Parvin is a great example of eating and growing healthy food in order to be SELF SUFFICIENT.
All of this smells funny to me, are they trying to oust someone who is not conforming or simply trying in the wrong fashion to raise the level of integrity of the neighborhood? Either scenario should NOT end in a $115,650.00 fine as it kind of makes it appear as though someone is trying to get financially healthy while pushing someone out of the neighborhood. People who have this kind of knowledge of composting, cultivating good healthy food through natural organic gardening, should not be given fines and shunned they should be embraced in our communities.
