Is there any such thing as a 'good surprise' in an HOA?
Was I annoyed that our HOA board had not informed us that our 24/7 manned security was perhaps not so secure now that the community would be open to the general public to accommodate a sales center for a community down the road? You betcha. At the very least, it would have been nice to have been informed of the situation without having to find out about it by chance. As with most things in life though, it is usually easier to ask for forgiveness than for permission so perhaps that was our board's reasoning.
After I simmered down, I realized that in the 4 months since this questionable arrangement had already been in place, nothing bad had occurred in my community. It was business as usual, reinforcing the old maxim that ignorance is bliss.
