Can a property owner withdraw from a home owner association that has been in existance for 30 years?

If so, what is the process? Do the other HOA members have any say in the matter? Does the Board of Directors of the HOA have to approve the withdrawal?

Unless the membership in the HOA that you are writing about is voluntary and not mandated by a recorded covenant, condition & restriction running with the ownership of a given property one property owner cannot voluntarily withdraw from such an association. Given the subject of your question, I suggest that you consult with an attorney experienced in planned unit developments.
