Why not just sell to city for $1? It's insane that POA members paid for the building and now their taxes are being paid to 'rent' it? Sounds like the city needs to look at exercising eminent domain.

I have just about HAD IT with the Bella Vista Property Owners Association! They are a relic of the past, propped up by the developer, Cooper Communities, who still bemoans their loss of control after 2/3 of its residents voted to become a City. What they couldn't get through an increase in the "membership fees," they now plan to extract from City taxpayers, some of whom aren't even members of the POA and never have been. We are in a different century now, Messrs. Bailey and Basore. Do we even need a POA? Just go away!

Let's start first with closing 4 of the golf courses in Bella Vista. After that, there would be a lot of money to go around. As it is, Bella Vista is heading for it's own financial cliff.
