I’ve read through the proposed changes to the Bylaws and Restrictive Covenants, as well as TITLE 25 – CHAPTER 81. Delaware Uniform Common Interest Ownership Act – Subchapter I (perusing state & federal laws wherein the first half is devoted to definitions is a painful experience). While the proposed changes TSBA is pushing don’t strike me being out of line, I think a good approach to any major change is: “Don’t Rush to Failure.” If all TSBA plans on doing tomorrow night is deciding whether these changes should be put to community vote, that is good and my informal vote is YES.
If memory serves me, this is not the first time such changes have been proposed. Those efforts, while well-intentioned, came to a bad end primarily because the community did not understand the changes — what they were; why it was important to make them; the positive benefits of the changes; and finally, any down-side that might result from failing to adopt the proposed new rules.
My advice to TSBA, FWIW: Slow down. Take the time to explain your rationale, and answer the many good questions asked, such as those of Ms. Adler.
