It’s a Different Tune, but the Same Old Song

We’ve received a number of phone calls from members about the complete reversal of LHCC’s position on voting policies applicable to the upcoming vote on proposed governing documents. For the vote currently scheduled for 6/10/06, LHCC plans to:

  • vote for the new declaration at large, instead of section by section
  • allow M & S to vote lots for which it is not paying dues

Combining at large voting on the proposed declaration with allowing M & S to vote its over 700 non-dues paying lots, if allowed to take place, would determine the outcome of the election. For example, it would mean that the declaration for Section 6A with its 259 lots, a section where M & S owns no lots as of 4/30/06, could be amended even if every member in that section voted against the proposed declaration, because of the impact of M & S voting its over 700 lots. The impact on approval of the proposed Bylaws and Articles of Incorporation is even dramatic.

The directors and management of LHCC were adamant in public meetings in the spring of 2005 on 2 points: that any vote on the proposed declaration would be section by section, and that M & S would not be allowed to vote lots for which it is not paying dues, including voting its lots in an election on the new governing documents. This is a change of course if ever there was one.

We Rate the Docs Zero Stars!

We’ve performed a careful review of the proposed governing documents, and there is one obvious conclusion: the documents as proposed are bad for just about every member, unless you are M & S or a future member of the Covenants Committee. There are 6 areas where the proposed documents hurt nearly every member:

  • Assessments
  • Easements
  • Amendment
  • Adding Land
  • Rights & Protections
  • Restrictions

Never forget that if your home or lot is a property at Lake Holiday, it is part of the Submitted Land and is covered by these governing documents.

Can I Please Have My Wastewater Treatment Plant Back?

There are mistakes. Then there are doozies. How can we describe transferring title to $497,900 of real estate – but not collecting any money? That’s a mistake that is over 16.5 million times bigger than our earlier post on the issue of 3 ¢.

Is This Your Membership Lot?

The 2006 Budget for LHCC projects that Membership Lot owners will pay over $400,000 in assessments this year. By the end of the year, Membership Lot owners will have paid almost $1.2 million in the 3 years period from 2004-2006. Add in over $200,000 in capitalization fees paid on the sales of Membership Lots in the period of 2004 through the end of March, 2006, and the Association has received over $1.4 million from Membership Lot owners in the recent past.

How Much Should We Devote To 3¢ ?

Paid our dues on time. Paid the amount printed on our LHCC coupon book. LHCC printed the coupon book. But the office insisted that we did not pay our dues. Calls unreturned. Letters unanswered. Wasted too much time trying to resolve this. The office spent $4.42 on certified postage outlining their position on the 3 cents. Click on the image below to get your money’s worth (most images work the same way).

Worth every penny.

Shame On You, Chris Allison

You’ve worked hard to personalize your attack on us in order to avoid addressing a rapidly increasing level of concern among members. You’ve sent out a personal attack letter. You criticized us for making a legitimate filing with the SCC on the proposed utility sale. But we will work harder to stick to the important issues facing Lake Holiday.

We’ve Got a Really Sweet Deal For You…

Some of the most desirable lots in the entire Lake Holiday subdivision are the lots in Sections 1A and 7. For many years, the Association didn’t have enough money. Following the end of the building moratorium, there was pent-up demand for new construction at Lake Holiday. The real estate economy was booming. So what did some of the present and past directors of the Association decide to do? Would you have guessed they would have sold the most valuable lots at the lowest possible prices and thrown in a waiver of all fees and dues for 2 years – just to sweeten the deal? It made it so sweet it might make you sick.
