HOAs ▶ SocialCurrentSee



ALTACITIES®, an acronym for “ALTERNATE CITIES,” is the web moniker for the neighborhood of sites, blogs and locations created and managed by @ALTALOMAN, in reference to our first web journals and blogging activity when residents of Alta Loma in Southern California.

It is a universally known truism that the members of such "boards" have been known to try and institute/enforce rules which perhaps suit them more than they suit everyone else (such as what colors they prefer to see everyone's homes painted, for example, and whether or not neighbors should be allowed to put up a laundry line or raise chickens)…and, as a governing body, they are also universally known to revise homeowner fees...ever upwards.

▶ So I was thrilled when I moved to a rural area where there were still subdivisions that did not have these kinds of mandatory rules or fees...even though a voluntary homeowner Board did exist to organize things like road maintenance and Neighborhood Watch activities. This is the 'hood for me! I thought, signing on the dotted line to purchase my very own little rustic mecca in the tropical wilds.
