WE NEED YOUR HELP!
Restrict short-term rentals with your vote!
Dear River Oaks Homeowners,
We've heard your concerns about maintaining high standards in our community. Many members have expressed dissatisfaction with the issues caused by short-term rentals like Airbnb and VRBO tenants. Complaints often revolve around noise and disregard for rules, including county regulations and our own association rules.
To protect property values and prevent our community from becoming a transient housing area, we need to update our outdated documents, which haven't been revised in nearly 40 years. Other communities have already implemented restrictions on short-term leasing in their covenants and bylaws.
Therefore, in response to the membership's request, the Board has engaged legal counsel to propose a modification that limits rentals to a maximum of three occurrences per year, with a minimum duration of 30 days. Property owners who wish to lease their homes will need to submit an application for consideration.
For transparency and accuracy, the Board has asked Olivia Hollander to serve as our proxy holder and to accumulate all proxy votes. If you'd like to receive an electronic proxy, please email RiverOaksHOACommunications@gmail.com (or reply to this email) with the subject line "DocuSign REQUEST."
We will hold a Special Meeting on August 2, 2023, at 6:00 pm at the Collier County Government Center to vote on the proposed amendment. Please mark your calendars and make sure to attend or submit your proxy.
If you have any questions or need assistance, please email RiverOaksHOACommunications@gmail.com (or reply to this email) with your name, address, and phone number, and we'll get back to you promptly.
We encourage all members to actively participate in this effort to protect our community from the issues associated with short-term rentals. Without 75% of the membership's approval, the Board cannot take action. Let's work together to preserve the quality of our neighborhood.
Terry Waylon, President

HOA PDF FULL DISCLOSURE
Thank you for your recent proxy supporting the restriction on Short-Term Rentals here in River Oaks Homeowners Association community. Recently, after receiving your proxy, a Member has elected to launch his own campaign to oppose the current proposal, which was drafted at the members request. While it is important for all Members to make their own choice, the campaign by Mr. Thebeau is filled with disinformation. In the spirit of full disclosure, the Board has authorized the release of the attached letter to all Members that was prepared by the Association's legal counsel. While there is nothing for you to do at this time, it is important that the correct information is distributed to the membership. If you have any questions, please feel free to email Riveroakshoacommunications@gmail.com. It is the Board's desire that an educated decision is made based on facts.
