I know the feeling, ive have been cited by the association on numerous occasions for working on motorcycles in my driveway, or having my dog out w/o a leash, and parking improperly in my driveway, and having a grill in the front of my house, and having taken up more than my share of parking(3 spots out of 50, there are 15 condos and it was 3 damn hours), and parking my bike in the main lot.

But i am a believer in civil disobedience. And until they speak to me face to face and stop sending letters, i just go about my business.

I feel your pain.
I used to live in a townhouse and the condo corporation had all sorts of silly rules.
To make matters worse, I had some old crazy neighbors who would call in to make complaints about any violation of the silly rules.

This might be impractical for you, but you could brew at night so that your neighbors are already asleep and can't complain. That's how I had to deal with my hobbies that caused complaints.

Completely non-helpful to the original poster, but this thread just makes me want to say how ****ty I think homeowner associations are. Usually attracts a bunch of power-hungry losers who have nothing better to do than annoy their neighbors about the color of their landscaping stone.

Ditto to that. I will never buy into a neighbor hood with one. I understand the idea of them and it is good to help protect property values. But when it get to the point of, "your pavers don't match everyone else.", "you're grass is 1/8" taller than we allow on Thursdays in March", It's some spoiled house wife needing to feel important as head of some worthless committee.

I would look into the exact wording of the laws since they're being a nuisance to you, take it to the word to whether or not it's illegal. Or just go electric. More control anyway.

You forgot candles.

Seriously, this seems like some serious BS. Sounds like someone saw you cooking something up, and just assumed the worst (meth).

I used to live in an apartment here in NJ and I remember being told the law was no flame cooking under an outdoor roof such as a covered deck (obviously indoors too). I am pretty sure that is township law not the apartments.
Sounds like they are picking but probably backed by a law in doing so. I am in an association and man it sucks. I was told I brought the wrong type of trashcans once and many other things like that. Lucky for me I don't live there, just rent it out.

Land of the free indeed. And as such, I assume the OP chose to reside in this residence, subject as it is to restrictions imposed by the HOA and Fire Marshall, as a free man.
