    And per Dwight, those were only "some highlights."

    I'll bet Dwight didn't even attend the meeting where these were discussed and probably didn't even vote in the HOA board elections!
    Ain't it like most people, I'm no different. We love to talk on things we don't know about.

    Does an HOA have the right to enforce rules on the street? I wouldn’t know but I do know our HOA can’t prohibit us from parking on the street but the city rules required parked cars to be moved every so often.

    Because we’re in a gated community, all of the streets are considered private and under the authority of the association.

    Our HOA prohibits parking on the street over night. They aren't great at enforcement sometimes so it's usually not a big deal unless it snows during the night.

    There only time parking is an issue for us is when we have family in for the holidays. We have our own 2 cars in the garage and two spaces in the driveway. But if there are more than 2 cars from our guests we have to get permission to have them park by the club house overnight. And have to request it every night.

    Honestly, I have no idea how you put up with that kind of nonsense. That would drive me insane.

    That’s weird and would suck. We have an HOA that most people in the neighborhood think is overbearing but I’ve never had issues because I keep my yard nice and bring my garbage cans in. But we can park in the street. Our kids play in the street all the time. Where else would you ride a bike? My kids would go crazy only riding a bike on the sidewalk.

    Sounds like sidewalks are off limits too.

    Dang Shrute, how many homes in your HOA? 100s?

    I'm HOA presidente of our 16-home neighborhood. I've been the president for almost 20 years (since we moved here) in large part because I don't want a Gladys Kravitz type person taking over. My job is basically to flip burgers (and vegan patties) one weekend out of the year as well as tell one or two of my neighbors "No, we aren't doing that." during our annual HOA meeting.

    Holy crap! Is it possible that Dwight lives in a “senior” neighborhood? I didn’t see any regulations around golf carts being driven on the streets.

    And if so, he might want to campaign for president, Del Boca Vista style.

    It's a pretty kid friendly neighborhood. Kids roam the streets and sidewalks with no trouble.

    Parking really is only an issue when a bunch of family is visiting. The thing I really wish our HOA would enforce is making people pick up their dog's shit in the common grass areas. It's a big problem and makes those areas unusable.

    Our HOA has an 80+ page of dos and don'ts. Many of the don'ts are reasonable for our area. It is on the outskirts of town with lots of trees, so many pages are devoted to keeping that 'outdoorsy' look. No fences, no permanent high-situated lights, need permission to cut down taller trees on your yard, etc. There is a policy of no parking on the side of the road, which does not seem to be enforced. But one day we came back after a weekend of camping to find our street was blocked off for a cycling tournament. We slowly made our way to the house, where my son's friend had parked his truck on the side of the road. Someone had placed orange pylons around the truck for the entire race, narrowing the way for the cyclists. Everyone knew who broke the HOA rules!
