The thing to do is to starting contacting the other parties involved and asking questions. Read through the by laws that govern your community and if worse comes to worse you can escalate things by hiring an attorney that specialized in hoa law.
Unfortunately, living in a community with an HOA will involve necessary fees that the reduction of usually translates into a noticable change in the local environment and/or amenities. These entities often take the easy route, increasing fees as opposed to making nesessary adjustments or cuts.
Our recommendation, get involved and be heard..........
