Special Election for Homeowner Input on Parcel Q Development
Posted on May 24th, 2017
The Board of Directors is requesting homeowner input for the direction that they would like the board to take regarding the proposed senior living facility on Parcel Q.  The Board is currently maintaining a “Neutral” position in regards to the development.
All homeowners will soon be receiving a ballot in which they are asked to provide direction to the Board.  The Board is asking if homeowners would like the Board to support the project, remain neutral or oppose the project. As stated on the ballot, if the homeowners want the Board to oppose the project, there will be costs involved for obtaining experts, reports, attorneys, etc. to oppose the Parcel Q Project through the County permitting process.  That cost, which is estimated to be $75,000 would need to be paid for out of Association funds and may result in a dues increase at some time in the future to cover these costs.
It is very important that homeowners vote and return the ballot.  The quorum requirement for the Board to change its current direction is 51% of homeowners must vote for that direction.  This is a large quorum requirement and homeowners are asked to return their ballot no later than June 30, 2017.
Neighbor to Neighbor Fence Responsibility
Posted on Mar 10th, 2017
In 2014 and new law went into effect in California which states that in most cases, the cost of boundary fence repair or replacement is shared 50/50.  California Civil Code 841, also known as the Good Neighbor Fence Act of 2013, requires that "adjoining landowners shall share equally in the responsibility for maintaining the boundaries and monuments between them."  The text of the law is attached here as a reference.
