Hosted and produced by Shu Bartholomew, On The Commons is a weekly radio show dedicated to discussing the many issues surrounding mandatory homeowner associations, the fastest growing form of residential housing in the nation.

The silver linings in the storm clouds gathering over condo and homeowner associations in America these days are very tarnished.  The many promises have lost their sparkle and there just doesn’t seem to be enough polish to fool the folks with empty promises any more.  Recent events, law suits and headlines prove that the glitter was really fool’s gold.  The last great hope of restoring some sense in our neighborhoods may be found in the hallowed halls of our state capitols.  But how do our legislators determine what will work and how we can return a sense of “community” to our neighborhoods. 
On The Commons this week we are joined by Jan Bergemann Jan, president of the Florida based Cyber Citizens for Justice, has been working tirelessly with his organization to find out from the residents how they would like to see things done in their neighborhoods.  In a sense of true democracy, CCFJ has created a survey and plan on holding town hall meetings to come up with proposed legislation based on the wishes of the citizens.   Please join us On The Commons.  We’ll talk about the survey, the hot topic in Florida right now, the sheer stupidity of what many boards and associations do, some of the law suits and the complete and utter waste of money that seems to be the norm in a flawed housing scheme. 

On the Commons is produced by OTC Multimedia Productions.
