Part of the intention of this web site is to show that the members of Alex Taylor's Board of Directors have knowingly violated several laws and have abused the power of their positions. To use one of the members of Alex Taylor's Board of Directors favorite words when he is talking about homeowners who are not on Alex Taylor's Board of Directors, ignorance, ignorance of the law is no excuse, especially since I have written several letters pointing out to Alex Taylor's Board of Directors where they are violating laws. Even without my pointing out the error of their ways, Euclid Management and the homeowners association lawyer on retainer should be providing competent professional guidance to Alex Taylor's Board of Directors. Over a year ago when I objected to being overcharged for photocopies of the Governing Documents, I asked that same member of Alex Taylor's Board of Directors, if I could photocopy his copy and he replied that he did not have a copy. Amazing isn't it? You would think a member of Alex Taylor's Board of Directors would have a copy of the Governing Documents, dust off his/her copy and read so they would be knowledgeable and make informed decisions when enforcing alleged violations of the CC&R's. My opinion is Alex Taylor's Board of Directors just doesn't care what laws they are breaking.
Many Park Mediterrania Bylaws and CC&R's overlap with California Civil and Corporations codes.
