The Realities of CCRs (Local op-ed)

March 14, 2014

A local HOA president has written with great perspective about SB 1310, which recently was voted into Idaho Law.

In particular, I liked these thoughts:

In my experience, getting people to step up and serve has been a real problem. Homeowner associations are required to have an annual meeting to go over issues concerning the community, the budget and to elect officers. It is very difficult to get the required 10 percent of homeowners to show up. Time is valuable, so it is easier to pass the responsibility off to someone else and say rules are unfair.

Our subdivision maintains over 5 acres of so-called common areas for these purposes. We are taxed internally and pay to maintain these common areas by our HOA dues. What would happen if the city had to maintain it?


Peace On Earth, Good Will Towards All

December 27, 2012


The holiday season is upon us, when one of the traditional wishes is for peace and good will. Could “peace on earth and good will toward men” include not only family and friends, but also our HOA neighbors?


Take some time to reflect on where you are leading your community.  Reflect upon where you are going and make plans for where you would like to go.  Most of all: enjoy the holidays.
