They can hear you!

The above notice was sent to Four Seasons residents in HOA’s Daily Report.

Whatever you’re doing, it’s working, because you certainly got the HOA management’s attention.

On Friday, the Four Seasons Daily Report, a daily email to owners, added the following notice:

We are aware of communication created by a homeowner instructing concerned residents to call The Lodge to voice your opinion about Exhibit F. All comments, for any issue or concern, must be submitted in writing.

This notice comes a week after a lively board session on Sept. 21, at which many Four Seasons owners stood and made their voices heard regarding a misguided proposal by the Architectural Review Committee to remove Exhibit F from Architectural Guidelines and Standards until further study.

Not one of the residents who spoke at the meeting was in favor of eliminating it, because Exhibit F is the only document Four Seasons of Beaumont uses for regulating the planting of slopes. Removing it, would allow residents with slopes to plant shrubs and trees that would obstruct their neighbors’ view lots.

Since that meeting, we started this website, and have begun informing fellow residents of the severe impact on our property values this measure would have, and the response has been overwhelming!

Many of you have signed the online petition (please keep doing so), and everyone we have spoken with has been in favor of keeping this important rule intact.

Neighbors have also been talking to their neighbors and asking them to sign hard-copy petitions as well. One fellow-resident said, “100 percent of those that saw the petition, signed it. There is tremendous  support for this.”

Because of your pushback, the board decided to hold off voting on the proposal until they can study it further. Now is the time to let them know that NO further study or action needed on Exhibit F.  The ARC Committee laid an egg with this proposal from the beginning, and there is no support for it whatsoever in the community.

As we have always asserted “Exhibit F has served as a very good guideline for Four Seasons residents for a decade, and there is no reason to modify it now.” So what can you do? Sign the petition. Get your free bumpersticker. Talk to your neighbors.

Contact the board today and tell them you want to Save Exhibit F!

The fact that they issued this notice to all residents tells us one thing…they’re getting the message. Keep calling! Keep writing! Keep emailing! Use any means of communication to let them know that this issue is not going away. It’s too important.

Board votes to table Exhibit F for further study

The Board decided to table a vote on the misguided proposal to remove Exhibit F from Architectural Guidelines and Standards until further study. The move came after a lively Board meeting on Thursday (see video above), in which quite a few Four Seasons owners got up to make their views known about the exhibit. Not one of them was in favor of eliminating it.

Exhibit F is the only document Four Seasons of Beaumont uses for regulating the planting of slopes. Removing it, speakers at the meeting contended, would allow residents with slopes to plant shrubs and trees that would obstruct their neighbors’ view lots.

“If you were neighborly, you wouldn’t even come up with this,” said a former ARC chairperson. “It blows my mind!”

The fact that the proposal was tabled doesn’t mean we can relax. Now is the time to make sure your voice is heard, and to make it clear to the board that there is NO further study or action needed on Exhibit F. It has served as a very good guideline for Four Seasons residents for a decade, and there is no reason to modify it now.
