Because I can't sell my place. Same reason as everyone else. We are all down and out. The difference is that I admit it. If you knew what a great place this used to be before the northern city trash moved in, you would complain to.
Speak for yourself...wallow in the muck, spew your paranoia. You are a wimpy piss-ant and a contributing factor to your own malaise. Attend monthly meetings, be a part of the solution...most of us are here to enjoy and to protect what we have worked hard to achieve. Try a high colonic to cleanse your prejudice/hatred...you miserable wretch! Maybe we could buy you out?

Was that in case someone missed my posts showing what rude uncivilized nasty people have moved here from the cities?

If you had any money, you would be playing golf at Big Canoe instead of attending endless monthly meetings trying to get the meth heads out of here.

Today is the end of the first week my husband and I have been at our 2nd home in Coosawattee since the apple festival in Ocober. Coosawattee looks run down and not nearly maintained as well as in years past and yet our fees go up every yesr. The attides of some high ranking staff have been terrible if not hostile this past week in dealing with what we thought would be simple problems. We tend to agree with many of the posters here that Coosawattee is in dire need of new management before this community goes downhill any further.

Great post! Fees are going up again this coming year. More money will be poured into the Villas for the sixth straight year, leaving less money for roads and amenities as usual. Your analysis is spot on and many owners agree.

The attitude of staffers flows from the top down and has been festering for at eats seven years.

Yep, the money continues to go to the Villas. My, what a smart business decision that was to merge.......... NOT. Again, let's remember who was involved in that wonderful decision. DD, BS, DM, RC, BG just to name a few. You are correct, in that all flows from top down. The "top" was a major influence in taking over the Villas. This is who is running our organization. Doesn't that make you feel comfortable? And then, BS gets paid 6 figures to "manage the rehab" of villas and to get paid on a job well done. Didn't happen, but I heard BS still got paid. Sweet deal for him and now a BOD and our "treasurer". Is BS an accountant?

GREED

Even under the cloak of "it's the best thing for CRR" it is still greed.

POWER

the more power that is given, the more potential for abuse of that power.

SUCCESS (in CRR)

Success is measured not only by what you are doing but most importantly HOW you are doing it.


HALF TRUTHS

are really just whole lies in disquise

They advertise the villas with misleading "press releases" which are really just ads to persuade the city hordes to bring their kids to CRR. That does not benefit any of the residents who own property here. We bought homes here. We did not buy a booth at a carnival.

Here is an ad promoting an Easter Egg Hunt.

CRRA is trying to promote the Villas, and I'm all for that. Some families might want to get away for the weekend. The more money the Villas make, the less that comes out of our pockets. We have spent enough on the terrible business decision current management and previous BOD made. I'm all for NEW management.

Wasn't there but heard dues are going up and there will be cuts in every department. Paying more and getting less again. It's been like this for years. Where is all the money going? Anybody buying in CRR right now would be nuts.

Using that logic buyers should wait a while longer because as long as the current corrupt crowd remains in power CRR has yet to hit bottom. However, if the goal of DD, BS, DM et. al. is to have CRR r/e values hit rock bottom while doing substantial pocket lining, they are doing a fine job.

DD's contract is coming up for renewal. I, for one, don't want to see it renewed. He hasn't been doing a stellar job. The man couldn't even make any cuts when it was budget time. Hello?

This is a good reason for DD's contract NOT to get renewed. Old boys club needs to go bye, bye and let's get management in here who knows how to run a business! It's been a smooth ride for DD but not for the homeowners. He hasn't really had our good intrests at heart. Now that we have new BOD, things are changing. Me thinks some folks are scared. Good! Time for MANY changes in CRRA, the first being new management.

At the fireside chat tonight BOD President, Susan Gardner go up and walked out of the meeting to chat wth a friend for over 20 minutes. When a question came up about properties, somebody actually had to go outside and summon her back into the meeting. For any board member and espicially for the board president to put personal matters before CRR, Susan Gardner's disinterest in the affiars of CRR was obvious. On begalf of all owners I apologize to Susie for being an interuption to her job and not the purpose of it.

Isn't this the same person that caused the board meeting to be cancelled at the last minute because she was on a spur of the moment vacation in Florida? Momma used to tell me not to get my hopes up because then I would just have farther to fall.
