How to calculate our percentage of houses with no occupant over 55

Total houses in community       149
Unoccupied houses                 -10
Total Occupied                        139
Houses with no one 55             10
Divide 139 by 10 = percentage for HUD  or  07%
We could have 27 homes with no one over 55 and still maintain percentage under 20% based on 139 homes occupied. 

16324 Federal Register / Vol. 64, No. 63 / Friday, April 2, 1999 / Rules and Regulations

The new requirements under HOPA are equivalent to the original provisions of the Fair Housing Act. Like the original section 807(b)(C) of the Act, HOPA requires that a facility or community seeking to claim the 55 and older exemption show three  actors: (1) That the housing be intended and operated for persons 55 years of age or older; (2) that at least 80 percent of the occupied units be occupied by at least one person who is 55 years of age or older; and (3) the housing facility or community publish and adhere to policies and procedures that demonstrate its intent to qualify for the exemption. The housing facility or community must also comply with rules issued by HUD for the verification of occupancy.

From Federal Register /Vol. 64, No. 63 / Friday, April 2, 1999 /Rules and Regulations 16325

A unit which is occupied, even if temporarily vacant while its residents are absent seasonally, on vacation, or hospitalized, for example, is still occupied by that resident. If, on the other hand, a unit is leased by its owners during their absence, its current occupants, not its owners, are considered for purposes of the exemption.

RV AREA ALARM SYSTEM IS ACTIVATED

Please do not open the gate or enter the area without disarming the alarm system.  There is a box mounted on the fence to the right of the gate.  Inside there is a keypad.  Type in the 4 digit code using the keypad.

The alarm system uses 12 volt power for all of it's functions.  There is no way to get a shock from touching the box or the fence.

If the alarm is sounding:  Press  * then 2 – this will give a code on the screen as to the zone that caused the alarm to go off.
