Just how would three California bills, if passed, affect the lives of those living in homeowner associations in California?
Producer: Shu Bartholomew

On The Commons is a weekly radio show dedicated to discussing the many issues surrounding mandatory homeowner associations, the fastest growing form of residential housing in the nation.

There has been much media interest just recently in three proposed pieces of legislation in California designed to curb some of the outrages in common ownership developments. Local talk shows have discovered the wealth of "stories" worthy of discussion and the American Homeowners Resource Center (AHRC) reports their lines have been running overtime with requests from reporters across the country for information and contacts. So what's all the hoopla about? Just how would these bills, if passed, affect the lives of those living in homeowner associations in California?

On The Commons with me this week are Elizabeth and Arnold McMahon. The McMahons, long time proponents for the rights of individual owners living in HOAs, are the founders of AHRC which includes an enormous database of information regarding all aspects of communal living.

Please join us On The Commons this Saturday, September 6, 2003. We'll talk about the bills that seem to have woken a sleeping media giant, we'll have a historic perspective on the need for some "controls" on those in positions of authority and power and we'll talk about the role of AHRC in all this.
