WHAT RULES? PART 1: EMHA LEADERS DON’T OBEY RULES THEY ENFORCE
A homeowner insists that some EMHA Board and Committee members who stringently demand he follow Association requirements that are not written down are the worst rule violators. He contends that their hypocrisy should warrant immediate removal from their respective positions. If not for hypocrisy, then perhaps for the legal expenses incurred by their campaign of selective enforcement.
Any EMHA homeowner who has read a newsletter understands that the EMHA Design Review Committee is the "enforcement arm" of the Association. Why any homeowner association feels the need to incessantly threaten enforcement is a matter for another discussion, as long as it is understood that almost everything written by or for the Association contains mostly threats of enforcement.
The Association cannot claim ignorance of the issues detailed on this page, as they have been notified about them more than a year ago. The Association simply refuses to enforce the rules against certain people. Others they threaten crippling fines and demand compliance with non-rules, then complain about high legal fees.
EMHA DESIGN REVIEW COMMITTEE
Two long term members of the Design Review Committee, Henry Trost and F. Charles Jankel, both have years long violations in the front yards of their properties. Joaquin Tadeo violates the very lighting rule he claims to be so stridently enforcing.
HENRY TROST, EMHA DESIGN REVIEW COMMITTEE CHAIR
Henry Trost, by any measure, is the most prolific rule violator in the EMHA subdivision. He operates a business from his home, in violation of Covenant Section 11.1 RESIDENTIAL USE. The Association is his only client. He stores garbage, construction materials, car parts and a great deal of other items on his lot, burns vegetation, etc., in violation of Rules 11.2, 11.9, 11.11, 11.12. It further looks like he started a project on his lot years ago that has not yet been completed, in violation of 10.2.1. He has had a plastic bucket in his front yard since 2008, and an aluminum ladder leaned against the front of his house for at least 12 years, continuously.
