Sidewalk chalk is a gateway drug that leads to hard-core graffiti tagging.

I don't understand why anyone would subject themselves to being in an HOA. Fark all that noise.

So someone complained and it's going to be discussed at a meeting at some future date...that's what this is about...and another exceedingly slow news day crawls by in Stapleton, Denver.

Self-righteous Parents vs. HOAs?

Can they annihilate each other?
 
2012-06-09 07:48:49 PM
I would rather live on an island all by my lonesome then put up with zoning laws and HOA. Without those illegitimate sons of adulterous female dogs-bastard sonsabiatches- trying to control my property, I would love to move to a quiet little town where I don't so much as need a car to get around.

/But, thanks to those onion-headed farkons my dream is now to find a peaceful place in the boondocks where I can damn well have a junk car for parts and paint my shed green if it behooves me.

FirstNationalBastard: Self-righteous Parents vs. HOAs?


I'm a man without a country on this.

I worked in property management for a while (okay, foreclosures) and HOAs were the worst. Just the worst.

Exactly. Zero sympathy for either of these two parties.

Rain. Rain washes off chalk. But stupid is permanent.

So if you join a HOA, you just can't do what you want, when you want? Imagine that.
 
2012-06-09 07:59:13 PM
How come we never hear of the Tea Party opposing HOAs? I can't think of a more obnoxious group that makes such bullshiat rules.

theteacher: Downfall of socialism: HOA


HOAs are not socialism.

You'll note the Tea Party has rarely raised a stink about HOAs, probably because they hope they can return to the old-school neighborhood covenants keeping certain "undesirables" from purchasing property.

In the eyes of some, what Emerson is doing, drawing on the sidewalk with colored chalk, is a criminal act.

No. No one sees this as a criminal act. This might be a civil matter should someone press further after the talk, but seems the lawyer for the association simply wants them to stop until the talk. My assumption is she has drawn on a few places which are not common areas, and the neighbors would appreciate not having to wash this off. For myself, I would never complain, but I am a man who enjoys a little bit of oil stains, some rust, mineral spots, tall grasses, and chalk which feels a tad more authentic to the washed and manicured and austere.

I don't think the anti-matter equivalent of derp is whargarbl, I think it's straight-up awesomeness, like a Tarantino movie with a lot of Sam Jackson in it.

Seriously, if you're 'offended' by sidewalk chalk drawing by a 3 year old, you should move to Pakistan where everything can be treated as an outrage and you can just spend all your time rampaging through the streets.

Subby uses snowflake cliche to support a HOA ban on something with 100 years of history at least.

Because they want use HOAs to covertly evict all the brown people from their neighborhoods.

A Fark chalk drawing party could be interesting.
Just think of all the memes you could draw...
 
2012-06-09 08:10:01 PM
Uh,


But the HOA said because it is a shared space, anything that offends, disturbs or interferes with the peaceful enjoyment isn't allowed. It seems that some neighbors have complained.

"The association is trying to go down a path of do no harm and prevent the sidewalk art as opposed to... until such time as it can get together and discuss it," said the attorney representing the HOA in Stapleton.


HOA's hand is more or less forced here.

Seems to me to be as likely to undermine right-to-work support as to undermine HOAs.

I lived in a condo with an HOA for almost two years and I would never ever to it again. I put up a basketball hoop for my kid and the next morning the president of the HOA knocked on my door. When I opened up he pushed past me, kicked over a lamp and sodomized the porcelain dalmatian that I keep next to my fire place. Then he ate all of my left over Pasta Roni. There is something seriously wrong with those people.

I'm sorry if you willingly buy a place with an HOA then you must follow the rules no matter how silly there are. If you don't like your HOA then move. You would think after all these stories people would learn...

Nothing personal, but Stuff a Sock innit.

When you ban children from drawing on the sidewalk with chalk, you are only a few years from watching the police draw around them in chalk on the very same spot.

It can be pretty hard to buy into a condo without one, and at least around here any neighborhood that isn't 30 years old or out in the boonies has one for detached houses too.

I'd be a lot more down on them if it wasn't for dipshiats planting random shiat like banana trees in common spaces (and blocking other people's windows) and dumping cardboard in the trash dumpster so the city won't empty it until someone crawls in to get it out - some people are just shiats who don't give a fark about their neighbors and need a draconian HOA to be kept in line.

ph0rk: Seems to me to be as likely to undermine right-to-work support as to undermine HOAs.


Both would be great ends. My issue with associations is having a separate contract foisted on someone in order to sign off on a contract to buy a house. I do not mind people who want to be in them, but I do mind when people are forced as a condition to purchase a house, which is obnoxious. This would be akin to forcing you to enter a Subaru club whenever you bought an Impreza or some nonsense.

Not all HOAs are terrible. I lived in a neighborhood that had a (voluntary) neighborhood association that existed mostly to fundraise for the local elementary school, throw the occasional block party, and make sure the streets were paved. The one big complaint about private property was getting the city to demolish an abandoned bakery, which helped get the Neighborhood association president elected to city council.

Well, some place have common areas that need maintenance. Condos in particular need the buildings, roofs maintained, parking lot resurfaced, etc. That shiat isn't free, and a well managed HOA as a farkton better than assessments to finance that crap.

/Oh hi, $1700 for the building roof, due this month!
