There are a lot of similarities as well as differences between the ArrowCreek and Somersett golf situations. AC has the clubhouse as the significant asset, and SGCC has water rights. County Club members seen to be the driving force pushing for ownership changes / structures at both. The proposed purchase of SFGG by SOA was halted last week by a Temporary Restraining Order preventing vote counting, campaigning, or any other action, with a hearing scheduled 18 December. Google CV14-02166 for the District Court abstract of the case.
From a “Concerned Citizen”
In our HOA December Newsletter President of the HOA Sam Fox writes, “…It is imagined that this Joint Venture will run the golf courses, activities, swimming pools, fitness center and other recreational activities within the ACHOA. This is similar to current activities that are occurring at Somersett HOA concerning their golf course operations and recreational facilities.”
First of all, I personally do not like an ‘outside’ organization controlling assets and activities that I/we already own! Second, if you review our community/citizens web site, https://arrowcreek411.wordpress.com, you’ll see that Somersett is involved in several legal entanglements related to Mr. Fox’s statement. Third, do we, the owners of ArrowCreek, want this same future? Where we’re suing ourselves?? (BTW only 30%, 900 ballots out of a possible 2700, of the owners voted)
We need to slow this train down or bring it to a complete halt. Mr. Fox appears to live in a world very different from mine.
