COVID-19 in Tuckerton Meadows

January 2022

This is just a reminder to community members to stay vigilant when it comes to the COVID-19 pandemic. We currently have several confirmed and active cases of COVID-19 in the Tuckerton Meadows Community. This Omicron variant appears to be very contagious and is spreading like wild fire. According to Ocean County Health Department Tuckerton has had around 400 total cases of COVID-19 since the beginning of the pandemic just prior to Christmas, and now that number is 500+ and some of those 100+ new cases are confirmed to be within Tuckerton Meadows Community.


We would ask that you please keep a mask with you in your pocket at all times when out in the community in case you come across another neighbor and want to chat. Try to keep a social distance when chatting with your neighbors, and please remember not all community members have the same risk factors as you do.


Some are vaccinated and boosted, and some are not but regardless of vaccination status everyone is susceptible to this new variant and potentially at risk, and/or at risk of endangering others. So please be a good neighbor and remember to bring a mask with you when out and about at Tuckerton Meadows and please have the courtesy of wearing it when talking to your neighbors.


We know this is uncomfortable for everyone and many of you have become apathetic and are experiencing pandemic fatigue but please, whatever your political affiliation or belief in the pandemic please at least do what you can to protect your neighbors by bringing a mask with you in your pocket at all times, keeping a social distance when chatting with your neighbors, and put your mask on while talking to others when appropriate. Please be extra vigilant in washing and/or sanitizing your hands and touch points when taking out trash and touching common areas.

Tuckerton Meadows Owners & Residents

Important information

about Association Management.


Many of you maybe wondering about our association “Tuckerton Meadows Townhouse Association inc.” and for good reason. First let me caution you on who you accept communications from claiming to represent “the association” there are very clear laws that dictate how the governance of a common interest homeowner community such as ours is conducted. These laws (mainly the Radburn regulations) dictates such things as how an election is done, documentation of association business, your rights to access that information and review documents, your right to ADR (a alternative dispute resolution process that you have legal right to (if requested) before having any fines/disciplines imposed on you, requirements of the association to give proper notice to all association members of future meetings, and related information such as how binding votes must be taken. (per Radburn; votes must be taken for the first time in an open meeting where all owners are given acceptable notice.)

To my knowledge no binding votes have been able to be taken in recent years. (Sometime before IMPAC property management stopped representing the community in 2018 and likely before 2017)


This is a very troubling issue for our entire community.


This effects everything in our community.


Binding votes must be taken for such things as budget, change of management companies, changes to bylaws, deed changes, imposing of fines on member accounts, association contracts (Such as landscaping and snow removal, maintenance etc.) and pretty much anything of consequence.

As many of you know many things of consequence have been done in the community in the recent preceding years. Our governing documents should be clear and dictate what money is spent on but because of these issues ours currently do not, and even more concerning many documents have been filed with Ocean County indicating changes having been made that have not been properly voted on as New Jersey Law requires.

These are not small issues and they pose a liability to all homeowners who are association members.

You maybe concerned about the appearance and safety of our community and the way our bylaws are enforced.

As an association member I am too, unfortunately the reality is our rules are currently unenforceable and rely solely on misinformation and our community members not knowing facts and information.

So to help you assess the source of this information I think it’s important to know a few things.

Only a few people have attended previous association meetings, this maybe do to lack of proper notice being given to association members, or lack of interest. In the past 5 years about half of the units in our community has changed ownership! Yes, half!

...and another 5+ more are expected to transfer soon.

According to public record documents sourced from Ocean County public records website of the half of all units that changed ownership 12 properties transferred title twice, 2 properties transferred title 3 times, and one unit transferred title 4 times all in less than 5 years.

Tuckerton Meadows consists of 130 units, so half is a large number to have that kind of turnover in such a short period of time. Some of the people responsible for all the management and association issues in recent years are apart of the half who have left the community but they have left us all holding the bag so to speak.

The question of management and governance of our association have been brought up in meetings over and over again but nothing has been done.

Some of us association members hired an attorney last year to finally compel an election. Our association was in such dire straits at that time that it was decided that an election had to proceed without delay regardless of whether or not it was going to be done properly.

If you attended the on-site election this past summer what you would of seen and heard was NO ONE representing themselves as a member of our Board of Directors. You would’ve heard an association member asking the attorney and management company who showed up who hired them and had the right to hire them to represent the association?

This was a good question one that deserved and still deserves an answer.

They were unable to answer this question at the election meeting and the attorney who claimed to represent the association refused repeated requests to advise the association at such a critical moment when they declared that they would not complete the election that day because of a lack of ballots received, association members revolted and demanded the election to be completed immediately.

Electioneering was necessary in order to complete the election that day.

It’s was a joke of an election for so many reasons. The meeting was never even adjourned, election materials were not able to be reviewed upon request after the election, no meeting minutes were taken (as there was no secretary to take down minutes, and no minutes from the election have been given since being requested) no association business was conducted or annual budget voted on.

Since the election many association members have still not been receiving proper meeting notices for the few meetings that have happened.

Since January 2018 review of records have been repeatedly requested for documents going back to the beginning of 2016 and it was requested that these records will be preserved yet none if these records have yet to come to light or be made available to association members as the law allows.

Most importantly management company contracts, acceptable/proper meeting notices (per the law), and meeting minutes for meetings where votes have been taken to change and hire management companies, and supporting documentation for the proper appointment or election of board members to show who has the rights to act on the Association’s behalf.

If you own a townhouse in Tuckerton Meadows you have a legal right to this information, so we are putting out a bounty for it...

You can request it from current acting board members or anyone you believe was previously a board member or management company. Really look anywhere you think you can find it, shake the tree and see what you can find out.
