Two months after moving into their new home in Granite Bay, one family says the got a letter from the homeowner’s association which stated that children playing in streets and neighboring yards is a violation.
“Honestly we were a little put out, real upset to the fact we didn’t feel welcome in our neighborhood,” says Jed Peters told CBS 13. “We also got a handwritten note from our association manager that states, perhaps we should have the children play in the backyard or at the park.”
Another resident, Stacey Degner, says she was baffled by the letter. Her kids regularly play in front of her home and on the neighborhood streets.
Jed says that so far they have had “over 75 positive responses from our neighbors. They said we want kids out front, not playing video games.”
A board member in the Granite Bay neighborhood told CBS13 anonymously that the letter was not worded correctly and there are no rules against children playing in the street. The issue is actually the traffic cones being put out by families.
A board meeting will take place this week and the turnout is expected to be pretty large, so hopefully everything gets figured out.
