Coto the Caza HOA board uses the nuclear option to cow residents - the chicken nugget analogy

To err is human, to really screw things up takes a homeowners association board”

Posted By CotoBlogzz

While we opined that the recently enacted CZ Master Association’s  rule changes were unnecessary and simply another power grab, we are now surprised top be proven wrong – it is much more than that!  - It  is what we refer to as the nuclear power option to cow residents to do the board's will.  The CZ Master association is the largest homeowners association in Coto de Caza.

We are getting reports that residents are getting letters from the association that it is going to paint certain golf-course facing association-owned fences from green to either white or bronze, AND the owners need to pay for the paint job.  If they do not go along with the association’s wishes, they will be cited and their transponders will be confiscated!  In essence, the homeowners will be barred from entering the community.

Now, consider that a mom in North Carolina said her daughter had to eat  three chicken nuggets for lunch, because schools  officials  thought the lunch she brought from home  consisting of a turkey sandwich with cheese, a banana, apple juice and potato  was unhealthy.  A state employee inspecting lunch bags declared the food unhealthy because it was missing a vegetable and milk.  If you see any parallels, it may not be purely coincidental.  

You may notice the board has cast its shadow - it must be HOA groundhog's day!

Needless to say, the residents we talked to are not only irate, but they are ready to fight the Nanny Board, including using the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act, commonly referred to as the RICO Act or simply RICO. The RICO Act specifically allows for the leaders of a group to be tried for the crimes which they ordered others to do or assisted them.
Were this an isolated instance, a partial observer could chalk it up to the old adage that says something along the lines of “to err is human, to really screw things up takes a homeowners association board.”  However, consider that while the board continues to arm itself with new rules and regulations aimed to cowing homeowners to pay up or else, in this dire economic times, it continues to dole out more than $3 million/year in subsidies to other non CZ-dues paying residents.

We asked board members to comment on this story prior to publication, but we did not hear from them.
