To The New  “HOA” board.

I posted on the “Next Door site” about the setback legal document. The reason for my involvement is I have a neighbor that has lived in Stardust for over 30 years. His name is Roy Lotz and I have become friends with him, he wants to add a porch to the front of his house but Don Gedert won’t let him because of the setback rule. As noted in the legal document the HOA has the legal right to give a home owner a “variance”. A record of the “variance” should be kept on file for future sale of the property.


As you know Don Gedert is always at the monthly meetings and the board looks to him when giving permission for someone adding a porch onto their home.

Well if the board wants to keep its credibility then it should send a board member over to 419 Dream Way and check the setback. The board approved the porch and garage addition without actually checking the site. That’s derelict of duty on the board’s part.

 If my neighbors fix up their property it adds value to the whole community.

I have no problem with Kay Gedert she has been in my home as well as Don and their daughter Linda.

Maybe the board could draft up a VARIANCE paper for 419 Dream Way and mail it to the home owner.


The setback is 25’ and the road has 50’ right of way then the house across the street has 25’ for a total of 100’ between homes if both homes are built on the build line.

I think that if you check the site you will find the homes are 100’ apart, so where is the porch?

I won’t post this on the Next Door site because I don’t want to cause any problems for anyone. I just want to be fair to Roy, if 419 can go over the line why not Roy?

Hopefully the new board members will be fair.
