I too agree. Before I bought my home on 5 acres in an HOA controlled
subdivision, I took pictures of where I wanted to put the tower, surrounded
by some tall pine trees, then used Photoshop to place a picture of the
tower in the trees. The HOA committee could see what it would look
like. I also told them that without their approval, I would not purchase
the home. I provided a short commentary on what ham radio operators do as
a service to the community. I also took pictures of towers in the HOA
controlled community, as an illustration that they had towers in the area
already. I made a folder for each committee member, in color, so they
would have all the information they needed in front of them to make a
decision. It worked like I had hoped - unanimous approval. The tower's
been up for a year, and no complaints. Good luck on your quest.|
