Community upset after HOA tells them to leave garage doors open or face $200 fine

AUBURN, Calif. (WCMH) – Members of a California community are upset after their homeowners’ association told them they need to keep their garage doors open during the day.

A list left with homeowners in the Auburn Greens subdivision is giving many residents a cause for concern. It mandates leaving garage doors up from 8 a.m. through 4 p.m. Monday through Friday, KTXL reported.

Residents who fail to keep their garage door up face a $200 fine and an administrative hearing.

“I have nothing to hide. I understand that somebody had someone living in the garage. I don’t,” said Shelly Ia. “I am following the rules. All I am asking is a reasonable way of going around this. If you want to do a monthly, bi-monthly inspection of my garage, I have nothing to hide. If I have something stored in there and you don’t like it, I’ll remove it.”

Supposedly a homeowner allowed someone to live inside their garage so the HOA answer is to make everyone keep their garage doors open during the day.

Shaking my head at this beta-male quote from the article:

"“I have nothing to hide. I understand that somebody had someone living in the garage. I don’t,” said Shelly Ia. “I am following the rules. All I am asking is a reasonable way of going around this.

So I suppose the HOA is going to provide security to insure that it’s not “easy pickings” for thieves to help themselves from open garages in that neighborhood?

I agree. But they are getting harder and harder to avoid.

And if you have tools in your garage, you get to expose them every day so thieves can have their pick? Or they can just come right into the house and take your TV? Or your cat gets to roam the neighborhood after it uses the catbox?

Great idea. We just had a homeowner revolt in our neighborhood and unseated 3/5 of the HOA board. Might be time for these folks to do the same.

Please don’t give my retarded New Jersey town any new ideas. They already banned the use of “pods” or storage containers because they are afraid Jews might live or pray in them.

HOA can be a Mini Police State. The member having someone living in their garage should pay, not the members in general.

Heh, me too. How about, "My garage is my business, and if you don't like it, KMA."

I don't think that I'd fit in well with that neighborhood. "No HOA" was a requirement, when I bought my house.

"...open garage doors..."


A whole neighborhood with open garages?
Aside from being ridiculous...it is unsightly and unattractive!

If you can't beat them, have somebody else beat them up!

I wonder what happens when a neighborhood goes HOA.

Are homeowners grandfathered in if they don’t want to genuflect to the overlords?

Some Towns and their zoning departments are worse then most HOAs, I own a home in a NJ town and a home in a PA HOA, the NJ Town has way more rules, regulations, fines, more inspectors/code enforcers then my HOA in PA.

Ironic my town is under federal investigation for civil rights violations, but Sessions is doing squat to put Hillary in prison... Priorities I guess

Some towns ban the use of PODS — or at least heavily restrict them — because they detract from the appearance of the neighborhood. They’re no different than having a tractor-trailer parked in front of your house for days and weeks on end.
