Homeowners Association Orders Removal Of Sign Supporting McDowell High School Graduation
Frustration is at an all time high for a McDowell High School senior. It comes after their owners’ association asked the family to remove a sign of celebration.
It’s a heartbreaking thought that Connor Williams, a McDowell High School graduate, never saw coming.
Williams received a sign from the school district in celebration of the senior’s accomplishments. The Asbury Woods Homeowners Association told the Williams family they had to remove the sign from their front yard or pay a hefty fine.
“I just wanted the recognition of being a senior and getting my degree and going to college. This is really the only way that this will happen since the graduation is now live. Connor Williams said.
Connor’s mother, Wendy Williams, has lived in development for over 15 years. She says the receipt of this notice has been extremely disappointing.
“We were very upset when we learned that there had been a board meeting in our neighborhood and we received an email from the president of our association telling us that we had to remove the sign immediately.” Williams said.
The homeowners association said in an email that the sign had to be removed by May 11 or the Williams family would be fined hefty $ 100 per day. The family say they understand the rules of the Homeowners Association, however, they believe their son should be celebrated during these difficult times.
“We understand that in our neighborhood we have rules and regulations with signs. It was more about “for sale” signs or political signs and for us it was more of a sign of support for our son. Williams said.
JET 24 Action News knocked on the door of the President of the Homeowners Association, but no one responded for comment. The family said they would follow the Homeowners Association’s orders and remove the sign.
