Our HOA met with Tiff and George tonight and here is the update:
The meeting is over. No decision yet. The facts are these (1) the board upheld their decision that the house was in violation of Andover Forests bylaws. (2) They have suspended the fines and no fines will be imposed on us until a final decision is reached.(3) We have to submit supplemental materials (Therapist letters,... doctors letters, medical records) that in fact Cooper needs his house. They want to know why Cooper can't climb a tree house or use a swing. Essentially we have to prove that he is disabled and has CP. When all of the paperwork is submitted (we have three weeks) the board will meet again and decide what to do. This will most likely take place in January. I really appreciate everyones support. I do have a simple request. It's Christmas. Cooper gets to keep his house through the holidays. It's the time of year to love thy neighbor. Although there may not be a permanent resolution to this problem as of yet, I would appreciate everyone to focus their energy towards positive thoughts for Cooper and not waste their time and energy on negative emails/phone calls to the HOA. We may not agree but it's the season of love and forgiveness. For Cooper's sake, let's take the high road. I really appreciate each and everyone of you. We wouldn't even have had a chance if it hadn't been for you. I'll keep you updated. But until then, THANK YOU and enjoy your holiday season! Love, Tiff and Coop
I haven't known Tiff very long but I can safely say she is one of the nicest people I know. I am going to try to endeavor during this holiday season to follow her example. This story isn't over and I'll keep you posted in the New Year. I think our HOA believes they can convince our neighborhood and community to forget about this story if they can put some time between now and their final decision. I pray that in that time they are able to see reason and change their minds. If not, they are seriously mistaken about our neighborhood forgetting about this. We do and will continue to support Cooper's House! So here's to a Very Merry Christmas to you all and especially Cooper and the Veloudis family! :)
