I put in for an architectural variance for a weather camera on my chimney. The board said they would conducted a survey with community members if they had a problem with a camera on the roof. The camera would be a 24/7 open access to view the sun rise, sun set, moon phases and storm clouds and lightning. No secrecy. Cannot look into any windows. This information was put into the minutes of the meetings. When my neighbors ask when they would be questioned I called the board and their reply was after the meeting they changed their mind. Can they do this?
The HOA board can generally undo a prior decision. However, considering this is an architectural change request, most HOA boards would need to provide the homeowner with a reason for denying the request. You should check your association’s governing documents to see how your HOA’s architectural review process works and whether or not the board can reject your request without reason.
