SB 187 Hearings Held

On Tuesday, December 1, 2009, Kaman & Cusimano, LLC attorneys David W. Kaman and Darcy Mehling Good attended Senate Bill 187’s proponent hearing before the Ohio Senate’s State & Local Government & Veterans Affairs Committee. David Kaman testified and answered questions before the committee, elaborating on the bill’s benefits to Ohio’s homeowner associations and Ohio’s homeowners. This was a crucial first step to getting this legislation passed in the Senate.

If passed, SB 187 would establish the Ohio Planned Community Act, giving Ohio’s homeowner associations a statutory foundation, similar to Ohio’s condominiums. The Act will provide Ohio homeowners with the consumer protections they deserve by protecting their investment through statutorily organized associations creating strong neighborhoods and communities. This includes the ability to amend a declaration, permit spouses to serve on the board, and affirm the association’s right to file a lien.

As this bill progresses through the Ohio General Assembly, your support will be crucial to show Ohio legislators that Ohio’s communities and homeowners need this important law. Stay tuned to this blog for how you and your community can help, and for updates on the progress of this legislation.
