“Time to Say Goodby”

It is with some remorse that after ten years, I have chosen to take down the SomersettUnited website. Our long-time followers will recall that it was originally launched in March of 2012 when there were limited communications from and significant concerns with the actions of the Developer controlled Board, some of which continued under subsequent Owner Boards. In response, SomersettUnited was launched with the following mission:

  • To be proactive in supporting initiatives that we believed to be in the best interest of Somersett owners and opposing those we felt not.
  • Provide a place where important issues are posted and open for comment.
  • Establish an open forum for all Somersett owners to voice their opinions and become involved in community affairs.

In doing so along the way we made many friends, and perhaps a few enemies, with our reporting and editorializing. Be that as it may, with the passage of time, our community has evolved (i.e., settled down) with fewer controversies along with much improved Association communications. This via the Association website and email newsletters, which we encourage all our readers to access and sign up for. Obviously, owner issues with Board actions will continue to exist, but we will now leave that to be addressed in other venues.

SU will be forever grateful to our many followers and contributors (both pro and con), who made this website successful. Also, to those Association staff members (too many to list) who, willingly or not, always responded to my many questions and requests.

Although I will miss reporting on community affairs, I believe it is time to move on to other endeavors.

Again, thanks to all for your support over the years

  8. Hello Jim,

    Best with your new endeavors Jim and thank you for your time and service in maintaining this website.
    A big benefit that SU has provided, aside from an independent voice, has been the historical data that this website has archived and indexed. Historical details in your reference section are a wealth of information and I hope you archive them just in case they are needed.

    Great job and much appreciation for all you do.
