On October 28, 2002, John F. Devine, as President of the Preakness Dr HOA, signed a legal instrument that conveyed an easement right of way to a non-hoa party for the consideration of $1.00. None of the area residents within the community were ever given notice of this pending transaction, nor are the details of the transaction sufficiently documented. There is no indication that this transaction was taken with a legal Board of Directors vote, or community resident vote as is indicated in the Preakness Drive HOA governing documents.
The residents request to know the circumstances surrounding this transaction and is currently being done to protect the HOA from any liability that may arise from the stormwater flooding that affected HOA residents have complained and documented as damaging their property.
Residents need to know what actions are pending concerning engineer recommendations to construct a swale in the HOA common area to protect the affected residents and where the funds to construct this swale will come from.
