HOA Rules About Renting and Parking: Why Are They Being Ignored Still?

UPDATE 10/26/15

The very same Fed Ex Express truck is again parked across the street from my home… This activity continues to go on, Monday through Friday.. He seems to think he can come  home and park this Fed EX Express truck here whenever he wants to…… It is not stopping because this illegal parking activity is being allowed by the HOA management company Wakefield Sharp as I previously have blogged… I am simply continuing to document all episodes of illegal parking activities as a homeowner in good standing who was totally ignored when I voiced my concerns here…I hope that soon, this will change for the good…

UPDATE 10/23/15

I am just documenting once again that today, at 11:45 AM, this Fed Ex Express truck parked right in front of my home… This is illegal according to our parking rules which states that trucks cannot park here at any time for any reason other than a very brief delivery time period.

Right now it is 12:15 PM and this truck will most likely be parked here for over one hour. This illegal parking activity has continued non-stop since April 2014 and Meadow Park’s management company, Wakefield Sharp, specifically allows this to occur… In fact, Mark Sharp wrote a lengthy letter stating that this was an “exception” to our rules… This is all I am saying about this activity.. It continues on and on as if it is OK…

It is now 12:35 PM and the Fed Ex Express truck just left….

I am the witness that sees it every day and documents its occurrence right here on Meadow Park Community Blog……

UPDATE 10/08/15

Although this post is concerning important rules about parking and renting, the HOA’s parking rules continue to be ignored totally by the HOA management…

As of this date, a delivery truck continues to park for over one hour each day in the front of my home… This is specifically against our parking rules…. A camper continues to park illegally at the end of my street, in violation of our parking rules… An abandoned vehicle has remained in the same visitor parking location for months and months without being towed… Now, all of these issues are being allowed by the HOA management… They do absolutely nothing and in fact have encouraged the practice of illegal parking here on Captain Nurse Circle… That is the truth…

If the Meadow Park HOA management was really doing their job for us about enforcing our CC&R parking rules , I would not be making this update today…

I have all the documentation and photos I need to prove that this illegal activity continues unchallenged by the HOA management… I will continue to document illegal parking activities on Captain Nurse Circle until the HOA management is addressing their legal responsibilities appropriately and consistently… This is the CC&R governing our parking rules:

3.4 Vehicle and Parking Restrictions. No mobile home, camper, or recreational vehicle, boat, truck (other than pickup trucks that do not exceed three-quarter ton) or similar equipment shall be parked or stored at anytime within the Development (including on any public rights-of-way) except trucks parked on a temporary basis for purposes of loading or unloading.

Occupants shall park their vehicles in their assigned carport spaces so that unassigned Association Property parking spaces are available primarily for guest parking. No parking space may be converted into any use that would prevent its use as a parking space. The Board may adopt Rules regulating parking in the unassigned spaces, including regulations that prohibit occupants from parking in all or parts of these areas, so that the spaces are available exclusively for guest parking. The Rules may not prohibIt the use of unassigned parking spaces by agents
of the Continuum or the Transitional Housing Operators while performing services related to the ownership of the Transitional Housing Condominiums or the support services authorized, under Section 3.1.

I am updating this topic because there seems to a general interest in this problem still. I have been so focused on the fire safety issues, but of course illegal renting and illegal parking continues to go on and on here on Captain Nurse Circle. I am assuming it is rampant in other areas of Meadow Park too. The HOA has a lot of power to enforce our rules. It is a governing body that legally can cite and fine these people who are disobeying our CC&Rs…

I am here to state that all of the problems continue! I have blogged about all of them before  and done whatever I could to inform the HOA and other enforcement agencies. Those agencies like Hello Housing have been given full authority by the City of Novato to seek legal action against those Owners who are renting their Meadow Park homes out for profit.. Illegal renting has not stopped!! The buses are still taking those developmentally disabled people back and forth all the time to their work places. The Owners who are using their home as a “licensed foster care for up to 8” are still doing it… There are people who are renting rooms to friends and foreign exchange students.. All of this is being allowed by the HOA!  It is well-known that these problems persist.

Illegal parking by trucks and campers and giving some people special privileges to ignore our parking rules continue on Captain Nurse Circle. I witness it all the time. It has not stopped! The HOA has allowed this illegal parking activity to go on and on, so these people think it is OK to ignore rules and be the “special people” who live here…. The HOA management think they can do anything they want to ignore our rules. There has not been any election to vote on a rules change… Thus the current HOA management needs to be fired so a new group of law-abiding Owners and managers can be put into place….

What a concept!! Let’s clean house and get things back into reality.. We are not living a real life here on Captain Nurse Circle.. These bad Owners do not deserve this special treatment, whether it is illegal renting or parking.. They are not special at all. They are just law breakers!
