10/7/12-The Columbia Association (CA), the master homeowners association that governs Columbia, Maryland, is considering legislation that seeks to remove CA from the Maryland Homeowner’s Association Act (HOA Act.) If removal were sanctioned by the Maryland General Assembly, it would radically redefine CA and Columbia’s village associations as “Non Profit Community Service Corporations.” Homeowners throughout the Columbia Community perceive such change as being unnecessary and potentially detrimental to the good and orderly governance of the association.

MHA urges its members living in Columbia to contact their elected Columbia Board, Howard County Council and state representatives and voice their opposition to this radical legislation. Additionally, MHA suggests that members voice their opposition at the Public Forums to be held Tuesday, October 16, 2012, at 1 pm and 7 pm in the CA Board Room, CA Headquarters, 10221 Wincopin Circle in Town Center, Columbia, 21044.
