You know. I really miss common sense, don't you? It has bee replaced by blind adherance to rules, no matter how stupid they are! My hat is tipped to these forward thinking Springs residents who had the vision and energy to recognize, tackle, and complete a project. Way to go: you are a glimmer of our past when independent thought was encouraged!

The Board is merely doing the job they were elected to do.
If, as Barton claims, "...some of the improvements had been done with approval of the developer and also approved by previous Grounds Committee personnel," he should have written proof of same.
If he doesn't have written proof, then they have not been approved.
If the Board has no legal or liability problem with the improvements, they might choose to allow the homeowners to leave the improvements in place, and have each of them agree in writing to pay a hefty fine instead.
But I would imagine that the HOA might have a liability problem particularly with regard to the boulders. If one of those boulders rolls down the hillside and into a home, the homeowner could sue the HOA for the damage costs, since the rock was on 'common' property.
Is Barton really willing to sign an agreement stating that he personally will be responsible for all such liabilities and post an insurance bond to prove it?
