You were sent a “Written Consent” form last February in the General Membership Meeting packet for your use in voting on CC&R Updates. If you need a Written Consent form, one is attached to this message. We need 585 yes votes to pass each update.
There are 6 proposed updates for your consideration. Simply put, #1, #2, and #3 are to help clean up the Neighborhood, #4 will allow homeowners to put upscale Metal Roofs on their homes. #5 will prohibit Short Term Rentals of less than 30 days in length, and #6 will make it easier to Update our CC&Rs in the future. PLEASE VOTE Yes or No on each proposed update.
After you have voted, you may return your Written Consent to Karin Villaverde via mail to Kona Palisades Estates Community Association, c/o Associa Hawaii, Attn: Karin Villaverde, 75-169 Hualalai Rd., Kailua Kona, HI 96740 or by email to

Tom Fine Sr
Kona Palisades Estates Homeowners Association
Palisades, a great place to live!
The Board had already contracted with Associa Hawaii to be the Property Management Firm. Karin Villaverde will be the Community Manager. Associa Hawaii has played a key role in helping to uncover failures in the past to follow correct legal procedures and properly record actions of the Association. They were also very helpful in getting information out about the Annual meeting that had to be reconvened twice. We will have a whole team working for the Association instead of just one. It should make things go a lot smoother in the future.
President Fine encouraged the owners by saying "This is not the end of the process but it is the beginning. We want to make changes. You have wanted changes. This is the beginning of making changes to make Palisades a better place to live."
He also called for volunteers who want to help in the change process. We need the everyone involved in helping to improve Palisades.
Karin encouraged people to call her at 837-5293 or send an email to if you have any questions, concerns or good ideas. She also wrote "Please await future mailings and communications with more details on our services and what to expect in our new working relationship.
If you have not provided us with your email address, please do so immediately. We can save money and time by sending the newsletter out by email, instead of USPS. Click here to send your email address: firstname.lastname@example.org. Mahalo
