I entirely don’t mind being a big part of something that ends up being nice for the whole. Like being a member of some professional groups. I do it because I care about lending my voice to the regular good of all of us. So, I understand the dynamic of how groups can act as a whole to the benefit of all. This is why the way the HOA is reacting to a minor HVAC complication just blows my mind. I understand the bunch of us all want to protect our property values by agreeing to maintain reasonable standards. However, the HOA board just went after some entirely nice people over the most insignificant detail. All of us have some elderly neighbors who are being threatened with crazy fines over the color of the HVAC condenser cabinet outside their household. I saw the letter plus it was beyond harassment. These are nice people who have to live on an entirely fixed income. Replacing an HVAC component because of color is absolutely nuts. Their heating plus cooling device is far from ancient. It just so happens that the HVAC cabinet outside is in direct sunshine all day. So, it bleached out. Together, we made the decision to go online to find out what color the HVAC cabinet was initially. All of us got the color so our kid plus I painted it for them. Once the group of us were finished, I told them to call me instantly if they got any more mail from the HOA. I’m a lawyer plus it would honestly thrill me no end to do a little threatening of my own.
