Can HOA make me remove my security fence?

I HAVE LIVED IN MY NEIGHBORHOOD FOR ALMOST 15 YEARS.

I PUT UP ¼ OF A CHAIN LINK FENCE FOUR YEARS AGO. I PUT IT UP BECAUSE I LIVE IN THE BACK AND I DID IT FOR PROTECTION FROM ALL THE TRANSIENTS THAT WALK THROUGH

I ADMIT I WAS NEGLIGENT AND DID NOT GET PERMISSION. I WAS NEW TO HOAs, this IS MY FIRST HOME.

NO ONE SAID A WORD TO ME ABOUT THE FENCE SO I THOUGHT I WAS OK. THE BOARD RECENTLY HAS NEW MEMBERS WHO ARE ‘ENFORCERS! THEY DID A WALK THRU A FEW MONTHS AGO AND SAID THE FENCE NEEDS TO BE REMOVED. I TRIED TO REASON WITH THEM TO NO AVAIL. THEY WILL NOT LISTEN TO ME. THE PIC BELOW IS MY FRONT OF THE HOME. I PUT THE FENCE UP AGAINST THE GREENBELT . ONLY ONE LINK. I HAVE NEVER MISSED A HOA PAYMENT IN 15 YEARS!!! I TAKE PRIDE IN WHAT MY YARD LOOKS LIKE, EVEN THOUGH MOST OF THE NEIGHBORHOOD LOOKS LIKE A GHETTO. NO ONE DOES ANYTHING TO TAKE CARE OF THEIR HOMES. OVERGROWN GRASS/BROKEN WINDOWS/ ETC…..

THEIR ARGUMENT IS THAT THE FENCE IS ON COMMON PROPERTY.  I TOLD THEM COMMON PROPERTY IS WHERE PEOPLE GATHER, LIKE THE POOL ARE OR THE SIDE WALKS. SO, I INTERPRETED IT A LITTLE DIFFERENTLY.

NOW THEY SAY- TAKE THE FENCE DOWN OR WE WILL FINE YOU!!!! I NEVER INTEND TO SELL MY HOME. WHAT SHOULD I DO? IF I PAY 10.00 A MONTH TOWARDS THE FINE CAN THEY STILL DO ANYTHING?

I REALLY NEED HELP. I CANNOT AFFORD TO MOVE. I KEEP TO MYSELF AND TAKE EXCELLENT CARE OF MY HOME. I FEEL LIKE THEY ARE SINGLING ME OUT!
