Why did I purchase a home in the country club years ago and thus pay extra for my lot? Gates (which I thought were for private roads at the time), security, and an association that would maintain the appearance of same. I'm very opposed to giving vendors transponders. Instead, let's have a gate just for them that is maintained by a live person/camera, etc., or whatever it takes to secure our homes! Just because our roads are public, doesn't mean we have to open our gates to vendors. That's a double negative. There have been an increased number of robberies in the CC and enough is enough. Question: As residents, why don't we have any say so in these situations?
