This all started with my neighbor complained about my Transit van and alerting the HOA of the rules violation. The HOA letter states that there will be a HOA hearing next month to deliberate on my violation and to allow me to plead my case.
So, if anyone lives in a community that is a 'Site Condo' and has association rules, including neighbors who just love to complain and make everyone's life miserable, be aware of such rules prior to purchasing your Ford Transit Van. Especially if your Transit is one of the larger models. (Alternative is find a more hospitable community... LOL...)
Wish me luck and pray that the HOA committee likes Transit vans.
I have had to refrain from any lettering on my last van at all, and so far with this one have really had to park at an extreme angle, and be dutiful during contracted snow removal processes. Helps to have the wife on the board though 👩 !
