In 2008 an issue came before the HAWL Board of Directors concerning a new lease of common property to Hideaway Community Church. Several members of HAWL spoke against this violation of Deed Restrictions, but it passed anyway.
What happens when a group of people apparently vote to enrich a certain corporation at the expense of another? This begs a question, is HAWL really able to self-govern?
