Passmore said she received an HOA letter from her community in Prescott that gives them a deadline of June to find other accommodations for Clabaugh.
I love her response to the board — “I’ve stepped in things I find nicer than you people” — and hope the publicity means someone will help her find a rule to rub their face in it.
It's a stark reminder that senior-only communities are inappropriate for people with grandchildren, but the underlying problem is HOAs. Avoid them unless you're willing to shackle your family's wellbeing to your worst neighbors' investments.
