    Silver Springs Master Association


    “AND WHEREAS, it was intended by the original developer of the Subdivision and was provided certain of the initial master planning documents that a master homeowners association would be formed for the purpose of representing all property owners within the Subdivision with respect to maintenance, improvement and administration of Subdivision common areas;….with the intent and purpose of establishing a harmonious relationship between the parties…” –Dev-HOA Agreement 1989



    The Silver Springs Master Association’s sole function is stewardship over streetlights, a number of parcels (two small parks) and waterways within the 857 acres of our community boundaries that are [supposedly] owned and [definitely] financed in common with all 512 Master Association’s residential unit owners-members in the 13 SSMA subdivisions.  There have been many years when the MA would have been more appropriately named “The Lake Front Property Owners Association” [50 units, 22 around Silver Willow Pond, 28 around Silver Willow Lake] as the majority of the expenditures and rules, and sometimes MABOT membership, have to do with the two ponds/lakes and the lake front properties who hold exclusive access to the 5.24 acre pond and now nearly exclusive access to the 20.84 acre pond.   We are unknowingly committed without our consent to changes, increased liabilities, expenditures and more.  See Community Association Facts for more information.  The SSMA was established in 1989 using a Draft set of Bylaws provided by the developer which the MABOT has been saying for since 1990 that they will have the Draft revised…..

    MASTER ASSOCIATION OFFICERS:

    MA Bylaws are very clear in Article IV and VII that the president, vice president, secretary and treasurer shall at all times be elected officers from their respective subdivisions, in order to be eligible to serve as officers on the MA Board of Trustees.
    Special Appointments may be made at-large for other positions or committees.

    Term limits exist for elected officers.
    Volunteer positions such as webmaster and waterways have no term limits; are not in Bylaws.  Paid positions are bookkeeper, manager.  Since 1990 both are held by the maintenance company owner without a contract or general member voted approval.  No complete audits of financial records have  been required since 1990 by the MA-BOT.

    HOAs – The Plague Introduced to Homeownership

    “There is much satisfaction and added value when living within a Homeowners Association
    There is also much dissatisfaction and contested value.”

    See “Surviving your HOA” by Willowdean Vance
    OR…”The New Web Book: The HOA Primer: Homeowner Associations, a plague that is threatening to destroy American Dream of homeownership” by Dorian MacDougall

    List of books written and published about Homeowners Associations


    “Rules and property values go hand-in-hand. Developed and enforced to maintain community aesthetics and protect property values, community association rules are often the source of friction between associations and individual residents. Though the rules appear to provide authority to keep neighbors in check, few realize how much that applies to them personally.  Although some residents would prefer to see fewer restrictions, 33% believe community association rules “protect and enhance” property values. Community association living isn’t perfect, and for some it’s just not a good fit.”


    Boss Thy Neighbor
    The Farce of Community Associations Institute (CAI)

    10 Things a Homeowners Association Won’t Tell You :
    1. “We Can’t Wait to Get Our Hands on Your Money — Or Even Your Home.”

    2. “We’re More Secretive Than the CIA.”

    3. “When in Doubt, We Sue.”

    4. “You Won’t Be Able to Sell When You Want.”

    5. “We’re Poorer Than We Look – half a mil in the bank.”

    6. “We Can Make Up the Rules as We Go Along.”

    7. “We Don’t Want You at Our Meetings.”
    8. “We’re in Over Our Heads.”
    9. “We Work for Nothing but Get Compensated in Other Ways.”
    10. “We’re Incredibly Petty.”


    Buyer’s Guide to Living in a Community Association
    January 02, 2002
    By George K. Staropoli
    Most of the time, and in most homeowner associations, the homeowner can enjoy the benefits of the governing documents that protects property values, but when something goes wrong it really can go wrong. And it’s the homeowner who lacks protection.

    This booklet presents those factors that are not advertised by the developer, nor by the real estate agent, nor of which you are warned by the government. Actual examples are presented revealing how far an HOA board can go and the extent of the lack of protection available to a homeowner.


    An Inconvenient Perspective

    I have attended enough MA board meetings to know they do have serious issues that require attention and resolution. I have studied the SSMA since March 2008 and have discovered the following problems —- Slack regard for the Bylaws by the officers (the 1989 MA DRAFT Bylaws provided by the developers have not been Completed by the MA board); questionable line of authority; no SSMA annual Membership meetings; secret method used to transfer the lakes from Mountain Regional to the SSMA with one signature then using a contrived Affidavit; quarter of a million dollars in collected dues from Members that are not disclosed on the printed budget; nearly thirty years without an audit of the financial records; unauthorized expenditures mostly for the two ponds; MA manager without a contract; association representatives on the MA board that have not been duly elected by their respective associations (the 2010 MA Pres. is merely a volunteer that was neither elected nor selected as a trustee nominee); board meeting attendees that have been entrenched in the MHOA board for decades and control agendas and outcomes; board officers elected without a quorum; fickle adherence to rules, motions made and carried by attendees rather than trustees; suppression of Member attendee’s input, etc.  Trustee elections reneged. The SSMA needs to formally organize the SSMA, provide Complete Bylaws  to allow the General Association Members their right to vote on the Bylaws, capital improvements, amendments, rules, expenditures, etc.
