Raise property values, not assessments, fees and restrictions. We should not have to choose to leave our homes and property because of doubling assessments and skyrocketing fees to offset administrative frivolous spending. Doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result, which is the loss of thousands of property owners and their respect. As your Director, I work to control spending and balance our assessment structure to reduce assessments for two thirds of property owners and give all property owners the opportunity pay our fair share, creating a sustainable economic backbone for the POA.
Hello, my name is Kirk Denger. [email protected] I bought my first HSV lot in 1979. After graduating High School, I worked in the home building industry, joining the local carpenters union. I built my home in HSV and as a home builder, have been serving HSV for 40 years. With Your vote, I volunteer to again represent You, fellow HSV Property Owners, including those of us who have fixed incomes consisting mainly of our Social Security. The POA’s purpose is to serve Property Owners and maintain our natural common properties, amenities and infrastructure.
We changed POA Governance when Y’all elected me in 2020, which is a testament of the resiliency of our Declaration. Together we have rebounded. I stand with Property Owners as your representative, open-minded, supporting complete transparency, freedom of information and welcoming Property Owners wishing to collaborate. I support streamlining top heavy management, marketing with proven returns on investment and conservative needs spending. Major expenditures and each restriction of our property rights shall be executed by the Property Owner’s vote.
Continuously raising assessments for Property Owners, who can afford it least, caused over 11,000 Property Owners to abandon their property, a $5mil continuous annual loss. The solution to financing our Village is keeping neighborly Property Owners in the first place, not by wasting millions on marketing to find replacement Property Owners. Affordable property and home ownership has always been the Hallmark of HSV and should continue to be our top priority.
Protecting property value is our goal. Assessments based on property value is the best solution. All the appraisals are already done by the county assessor’s office. Look at your county property tax statement; is your assessment quadruple your real property taxes? Your assessment should be about the same or less than your tax because both protect your individual property value. Revenue for HSV POA can again have a secure base, when working families can afford HSV real property.
I am campaigning to guide the direction of the POA and embrace the heritage of HSV which created the prosperity we have always enjoyed. Self-Sufficient, HSV is the natural premier active lifestyle community with mild climate and quality of life that everyone wants to live. On our 50th Anniversary, HSV Property Owners reset the course of the vision so many of us invested to be part of and that will continue positive returns and happiness for future generations.
