Don’t concede power to HOAs
July 17, 2013
Regarding the July 8 article on Alta Sierra's property owners association, be real careful giving your HOA too much power.
We lived in Alta Sierra for nine years in the early 2000s. I had a dispute with a neighbor on a front-yard partition fence height, which was legal per the HOA and county codes. The HOA clearly wrongly took sides with the neighbor. Unable to do anything, they tried to go after me on the street fence height not being per county codes, even though HOA did not cover that, as it was at their allowable height code. The HOA lost entirely.
