I can be contacted and will send the documents if somebody has an interest in reviewing them,Read Moreinclud ing HOA's Attorney letter and all the mail exchanges with HOA about my plants, going on since January of 2013, just 2 months after the new HOA Board ousted the former HOA Board.

I can't believe they're trying to cut down the bushes by the front door. This is clearly an abuseRead Moreof power from somebody who must be jealous despite owning more property. Those bushes are beautiful, and they really set our home apart. The HOA should encourage adding bushes to other properties if anything. Stay strong! Love you Mom!

I agree with Julian. Stay strong! I know what it's like to be a victim of "board"Read Moredictac tors. You have to fight the good fight in this case. There's not much I can do to help, but suggest you join Nextdoor.com as a way of connecting with neighbors who empathize with you, and may provide some support. We don't have enough members of Nextdoor.com and it's an important network to know about "all things Rohnert Park/Cotati", and could get bigger and better than Patch. It depends on us joining in standing proud for our own communities.

At best, RP is a "gem" of a bedroom community, and has been for the 35+ years I haveRead Morelived here, and even going back to the early 1960's, when I visited my grandmother here - a Dorm mother for the newly opened SSU. And we agree about there already being "bad businesses" here long before the casino. (the rest of your comments are a bit meandering...) Historically RP residents have done a terrible job of supporting local businesses, just look at places like Pacific Market, the minor league baseball team(s), Sizzler, Costco #1 (Where the Theater was built), etc. Also, RP has gotten smaller - shrunk a couple 1000's of people over the past decade. Why? Older people are leaving (down 10%), likely driven away by the rising cost of living here, and commuters are taking their place. There are fewer and fewer families, hence school closings... and the only jobs available here are service-based and other low paying jobs. So no, RP is not a "Gem" by any standards. The only people staying in hotels either A) can't find a room in Santa Rosa, or 2) Are awaiting a meth/pot deal to go down in RP, or III) Indigent and living at our version of a Sec. 8/homeless shelter/Rodeway Motel.

Sizzler? Why would anyone support Sizzler? And how is that a "local" business? TheRead Morepopul ation of RP going down 1,200 over 10 years is not a bad thing. There are too many people here. I believe the city was designed to accomodate 40,000, and the population is still above that. Having too many people is a drain on the resources. Commuters are taking the place of other residents? This is a bedroom community. Always has been. That means most residents are commuters. If older people are leaving due to the high cost of living, they must be leaving the state, entirely. I liked Pacific Market, but it was overpriced and understocked. The current Costco seems to be doing fine. There were long lines yesterday, in the middle of the day. I doubt too many people stay at Santa Rosa hotels, either. The Doubletree in RP is pretty nice, though.
