My question involves a co-op located in the State of: Michigan
I recently received the following letter:
The Board of Directors has received several letters complaining of a woman peering through the blinds at your address watching some of the children around the playground. Now there is nothing wrong with looking and observing your community and people in them, but the Board of Directors would like to set up a meeting with both [my husband] and [myself] (presumably the woman who is looking out the window) With all of the problems that were occuring with our playground, which have been lessening, the Board of Directors would like to gain more insight and hear your side of what is happening. We would like to have the meeting at 7:00pm; however, we will leave the date up to you. Please contact the office to set up this meeting with the Board, and although letters from members are confidential, if you have any other questions or concerns, we may try to address them as well.
I am wondering what my rights are in regards to this. Why am I privy to such scrutiny inside my own home? Is there anything they can do to me? Does the "watching children at the playground" line sound quite nefarious to anyone else?
For the record, I am a 30 year old woman with two young children. We live across the street from a playground. If I am ever looking out the window, it is to watch MY children. My neighbors all know good and well that I have children of my own.
Can someone actually define how often and for what purposes someone else is allowed to look out their window?
Should I bring an attorney to this meeting?
