I have ranted in the past about my distaste for Home Owners Associations (HOAs) and in particular the Architectural Review Committees (ARCs) that often come along with them. It infuriates me that someone has the gall to impose their own subjective beliefs on me under the guise of 'maintaining the community.' Today, I found a kindred spirit in Tampa, Florida, who is fighting back to protect his rights to do rational, non-harmful things on the property that he rightly owns.
W00t! Fight the good fight, man. I'm gearing up for a battle, myself. I want to (gasp) repaint my house, and where I live that means I need to ask for permission. Sigh. We'll just see how that goes.
