SAVE OUR HOOPS and LET THE KIDS PLAY
Prior to 2015, there was no rule in the Temple Hills HOA bylaws specifically about basketball goals.
Because of an unresolved issue w a single homeowner, HOA passed a sweeping rule preventing anyone from having a temporary goal on their property; claiming that the temp goals were bad for property values and were unsightly. HOA sent a notice to homeowners then asking them to remove their goals and gave them a 3 year window to do so or face liability of fines and potential lien on a home if they did not comply. That window is closing and those in non-compliance as of 8/15/18 will be fined $150 by the HOA until they are in compliance.
The outrage and dismay in our community is evident and this petition is designed to harness that frustration into a collective voice for change. That bylaw HAS to be amended as it's not rooted in what's best for property values or a thriving community of families with kids.
Please add your voice to this petition so we can build enough momentum around the issue that HOA will have to pay attention and make the change. Also, please share this with those who might also want to have a voice in the effort to amend the bylaw.
This effort lives or dies by your community support, so THANK YOU for your help and desire to make things easy for parents and homeowners to have a place for their kids to play outside.
