I didn't realize that HOA rules were written in stone and couldn't be changed.

I guess HOAs aren't all bad after all.

They aren't. But it takes a vote of the entire HOA to make changes. In our HOA any changes to the CCRs (covenant between ALL homeowners) requires 67% in favor to make any change to the CCRs.

We have 601 homes in my neighborhood, so there would have to be 403 homes voting in favor of making a change. That's not just 403 ballots, that's only the ones in favor. And we only have 60 days to solicit proxies.

We merged with another phase of our neighborhood last year and fell under those requirements. It took 2 boards of directors (10 people) actively working and going door to door for 2 months to get the combined 67% that we needed. And that was for something that had been discussed for several years (once the last group became homeowner controlled) and many people thought was already in place.

Most issues are not so cut and dried that you'd easily make changes to the CCRs.

Still don't know what WWJD and megachurches have to do with this subject. It's not like there aren't any collosal churches in Richardson or Dallas. Or do we only get reverse Jesus Juked when something applies to Frisco?

I would be interested to know if there were any problems spilling over from this teen homeless shelter. I know that a local church that has a homeless outreach has had a few issues with panhandling (one of whom was actually blocking traffic by the train station in order to pitch her tale of woe).

In any case, there is a lot of smug self-righteousness on this thread.
