size of the boxes to be installed. The placement of said boxes and accompaning conduit piping is NOW set to be attached to the very front of our beautiful Tuscan arch entryways of our buildings and will destroy the total look of the exterior. Can the board, without consent of 2/3 of the ownership, alter the common elements of our Condominium Community?

Help the community by answering this question:


You should check your offering plan. It will outline the rights and responsibilities of the board. Altering common elements may be defined for example as removing those arch entryways or other structures that were in place when the property was first offered for sale. Taking away common area of a condo community in some cases may require not only a majority approval of unit owners, but their respective mortgage companies as well. In this case, a structure is not being removed but rather, obscured. See what the offering plans says and go from there.

You may also want to inquire with Verizon to see what they can do to minimize the disruption to the exterior view.
