Terri Swartz just sent all the homeowners on behalf of the Board of directors a DESERT PRINCESS RENTALS - BULLETIN explaining why the HOA needs the have new rules, policies, fines and enforcement. It was summed up by a statement that all homeowners can agree with:
"To maintain a harmonious community, we must respect homeowners with divergent needs and interest.
Ultimately, we want to balance the desires of some homeowners to rent their homes, while
we preserve the rights for all homeowners to the quiet, peaceful enjoyment of their property."
What is missing from this bulletin, are any facts about the performance of the HOA's management of rentals in the past year. We know how the BOD wants to spend our money and how much they expect to receive. We do not have any facts that document the extent of our problems and how last years funds have reduced "disruptive rentals" at Desert Princess.
Since the board and HOA are not providing facts, the Blog would like to hear from homeowners on whether they have experienced an increase and/or decrease in problem rentals and do you believe that these changes are tied to HOA's management of rentals?
This blog is designed as a means to provide transparency and informative access to the policies and protocols of the Desert Princess Palm Springs Homeowners Association, the governance of the HOA Board of Directors and the management of the community’s assets by The Management Trust. The expressed intent is to establish a neighborhood hub for trusted connections and the exchange of helpful information, goods, and services; it is hoped that homeowners will use it to build a stronger and safer Desert Princess Palm Springs.
