TWL Community Yard Sales

This petition is to request a Special Meeting of the Tidewater Landing Homeowners Assocualtion to reconsider a TWL HOA policy prohibiting annual Community Yard Sales. The outcome of the meeting is to conduct a formal vote of homeowners  after reviewing the proposed guidelines and vote on a change in policy to allow Community Yard Sales based on these guidlines. 

Please indicate that you agree with our request to have the HOA Board and Homeowners consider and approve this proposal.  We need 49 households to approve this petition to initiate a homeowner's vote.  Thank you.
