Your experience, and those of many untold thousands, have been mostly positive over the years. I agree with your assessment of your HOA. However, in the “gated communities” of Las Vegas, security and integrity of the neighborhood DO come into play. I took a look at the possibility of living in a gated community. Because the people who live in these homes don’t have to be the payer of the mortgage (renters of investment property), and because the crime rate is so high in the Las Vegas Valley, security and integrity are issues being dealt with in many CC&R’s. In the last couple of years new homes were built that could not be sold by traditional means to single family buyers. So, they were sold to whom ever could finance them. And many times multiple homes were sold to the same investor. A truly ugly real estate market for the regular guy.
In most neighborhoods “out West”, banks own the foreclosed property. I am curious how the HOA would help in the prevention of foreclosure. With minimum wage at $5.68 an hour, incomes are not elevated in Nevada. Of course, no personal income tax is helpful.
In Las Vegas, North Las Vegas, Summerlin, Green Valley, Henderson and the remainder of Clark County, flag poles and anything resembling a clothes line or wire apparatus falls under county code. You see, Nevada only recently passed their PRB-1 Bill. And you are correct, Part 15 broadcasting is not a “protected” service. Under the state’s “amateur antenna bill”, even when erecting a tower in Southern Nevada, a licensed radio operator is still required to show a certified engineering study and pay all non-refundable fees before the structure is considered for construction and built. No permit and here comes Metro and the Marshals. Loading hand rails, chain link fence, gutters. wires hidden under the eaves or run through the attic, wires run across the roof, even antennas mounted on parked vehicles are used in this part of the country.
I suspect that your superior leadership and persuasive arguments have allowed the HOA in which you reside to work so well. Because the HOA’s I am familiar with; DON’T work so well.
