Harbor Bay Club

I learned that the board of directors for my Harbor Bay homeowners association voted to support the Harbor Bay Neighbors in their opposition to the new Harbor Bay Club.

I was never asked or contacted about this and I never gave the board the authority to count me in opposition. The truth is, I support the new Harbor Bay Club, as do many of my friends and neighbors.

I find it disingenuous and very disconcerting that the board took this action unilaterally, and further, that the Harbor Bay Neighbors then used 100 percent of the residents in their count of people in opposition.

That is just not being honest and truthful. It makes me wonder, if “The Neighbors" are not being truthful about their numbers of supporters, which I believe is far less than what they represent, then what else are they not being truthful about?

Hi Tracy, I looked over the list of HBN Supporters and I don't see your name (http://harborbayneighbors.wordpress.com/supporters/). However, you are welcome to join us; HBN is always looking for people who stand up for what they believe in.

Tracy,
Just want you to know from another HBN supporter, that ONLY those who sign up as supporters individually are counted on our web site. When your Board of Directors voted to support our opposition to the potential change in the Master Plan for Harbor Bay, they were making a statement of policy for their Association, as Directors for your Association. If the Master Plan can be changed on the whim of a Developer who is on record as wishing to sell the property to build up to 160 new homes if it can be rezoned IF he is allowed to move the Club, then any Developer can come in to make this same request. (That means that the Landing could be potentially sold for Development, etc.) This concept is NOT what most of us bought into when we purchased our homes out here.

Harbor Bay Neighbors supports a new Club, too--right where it is on the shoreline and where it serves the residential community as intended. Is there any reason that money taken out of the Club can't be put back in to improve the existing facility?
