CALIFORNIA PINES OWNERS
CALIFORNIA PINES TEA PARTY NOW IN MOTION !!
California Pines Land Owners are fed up to their ears with the "Property Owners Association.' They collect all of the money for the dues, and provide very little in services back to the owners. The county of Modoc and the City of Alturas LOVE the landc owners because most of them pay TAXES and these taxes fund improvements that are never used by the Cal Pines land owners. There only a few owners that actually live at California Pines because the development was just all hype from day one. Thanks Erick!
The list of the failures of the POA is endless. Most of the Members of the Board have not been on-property in years, and very detached from the real needs of the California Pines project. The Board has restricted who could and who could not be on the board, and they run the board in a 'good ol' boys' fashion.
IT IS TIME TO GET RID OF THE BOARD & ASSOCIATION !!
The 'Association' has refused numerous requests for access to the mailing lists of the owners so they can prevent the owners from banding together against them. But I am afraid technology has caught up with the old wise ones, and now the owners have a voice on this website, and we have many of thier e-mail addresses ...collected one-at-a-time.
STOP PAYING DUES TEA PARTY !!
If everyone 'Just says no to dues' and not pays the Property Owners Association, many think the association will have to disband. It has been here way too long anyway, and has really done nothing to help the community except pay thousands for fireworks for the local citizens that think all Cal Pines owners are 'suckers.'
Many have contacted this site and believe it may be easier to just quit paying dues and get rid of the association all together. Since there is no easy way to get in there and get rid of the old Board and install a new one, maybe the best way is to starve out the old Board. Quit paying your annual dues and the Association will cease to operate. You will not notice much of a difference, especially if you have property in UNIT 5, as NONE of your dues helps Unit 5, now ... or ever!
UNIT 5 OWNERS -- YOU GET NOTHING FOR YOUR DUES AND NOTHING IS PLANNED
The Board could go try to go in and place liens on property for the unpaid dues. This would open the Board up to law suits and challenges to the legality of the dues increases. We doubt the Board has the resourses to lien thousands of properties in California Pines and respond to thousand of challenges. So it is up to you, but there is an old saying "If you keep doing things the same way, you will always get the same result." This pretty much describes the past 35 years of the California Pines Board of Directors.
WHEN YOU GET YOUR 2010 DUES BILL --
JUST SAY NO!!
