HOA vs. Rain Barrels

Stories like this one make me loathe to ever move back to a large neighborhood.  Clearly, someone has their priorities completely backwards here.  This poor guy was just trying to save up some rain water and his HOA gets all in a huff because he has 6 rain barrels too many (the HOA is only "allowing" residents to have 2).  Apparently, the Wakefield Plantation association cares more about "visual impression" than saving water during one of the worst droughts in the state's history.  I wonder what they'll think when their golf courses are closed this summer because there's no water left to green the greens?
