Ashburn Square Parking Guidelines
This petition is to obtain signatures of Lot owners whom have concerns with the recent parking guidelines within the Ashburn Square community, and wish to have a special meeting with the board members to discuss the following.
1. Guest parking spots
2. Lot owners having more than 2 vehicles
3. Motorcycle parking
4. Parking in someone else driveway (with their permission)
5. Guest Parking passes
6. Commercial vehicles
I sent an email to the management company with 100 signatures. The following is the response I received.
Thank you for your email and for bringing the petition forward. Unfortunately, there are only 56 valid signatures. The requirement was one fourth of the voting interests of the Association. This means one fourth of the lots. Signatures are one per lot. Only one owner signature is recognized. Also there were many signatures that cannot be verified as homeowners through the official records of the Association nor in the Hillsborough County Property Appraiser records. The foregoing being said, a special meeting of the membership cannot be called. Please note that had there been sufficient valid signatures, 15 day written notice would have been required in order for it to be held. The earliest date would have been after the regularly scheduled Board Meeting.
The items mentioned on the petition would not require a special membership meeting as there isn’t anything for the membership to vote on. The enforcement of the Declaration is a board of director responsibility and the policy is a board decision. The Board of Directors is keenly aware of the sentiments of some residents regarding the parking enforcement and policy. I will request that they consider this at their next meeting.Also please see our new Facebook page. Please keep the comments clean and professional, I would hate to have the site shut down.
