GSMOL Report by Ellen Duke:
The 2019-2020 Legislative Session has ended with GSMOL victories:
AB 2782 (including provisions of SB 999) – Establishes minimum state standards for park conversions and closures and eliminates loophole that denies mobilehome residents with long term leases the protection of rent control.
AB 3088 (includes some protections of SB 915) – Protects tenants, including mobilehome residents, from eviction and property owners from foreclosure due to economic impacts of COVID-19. (SB 915 would have also required deferred rent payments for mobilehome residents affected by Covid-19 but legislature ran out of time before vote.)
GSMOL-Opposed AB 2895: Proposed to extend the same percentages and numbers in rental base adjustments as applied to apartment renters, which would have increased rents for mobilehomes. Bill was withdrawn before vote.
There were two GSMOL-Sponsored Townhalls this week:
1) Thursday, September 10th at 1 PM – HCD* State Audit Report Virtual Townhall: Streamed live from State Senator Leyva’s office with State Auditor Elaine Howel. The audit was the result of GSMOL’s advocacy efforts and revealed significant issues that are being addressed. (*California Dept of Housing and Community Development – which inspects mobilehome parks.)
2) Friday, September 11th at 1:30 PM: Telephone Townhall with GSMOL Attorney Bruce Stanton: GSMOL’s attorney will explain what the passage of AB 2782 and AB 3088 means for manufactured-home owners.
DPG Report: Meeting will be Sept. 16 at 7:00 in the Clubhouse. Please bring your radio.
New Business: These items were discussed via Teleconference this afternoon. In attendance were, Bob Mann, Cheryl Mracheck, Mary Manzo and Antonio Frausto.
Roads: Slurry seal gooks great, with few exceptions. Antonio and Frank will inspect and address the problem areas.
Water Project: Is complete except for the final connection of the emergency standby generator and fencing.
Pool Project: More delays with County Environmental Heath involved with the permitting and inspections. Plumbing problems have been completed. Now in the process of grading, compaction and installing the drains. Pavers will be installed and interior of the pool will take place soon. Late October is now the time for completion.
RV Parking area: This project is on hold until the final completion of Water and Pool project.
Street signs: Signs and numbers are being redone and should be completed by the end of September. The street known as Indian Wells will become a continuation of Stagecoach. Hang Tree will become Olive Branch.
Signs painted on roadways that read 10 MPH. Why these are not painted in other areas and the possibly of painting them a different color that would be more visible.
San Vicente has hired an Assistant Manager. Until training is complete the office hours will be 1:00-5:00 Monday-Friday. The phone message will be changed to reflect the new hours.
Sign on San Vicente property between San Vicente and RSB: Please do not use the arroyo to travel from our park to Rancho Santa Barbara. This is private property and a liability issue.
There was a discussion on what to do with the unused property next to the Water plant. Possible uses could include a new home site for an onsite manager.
Questions from residents:
A resident has notified the board about some political signs being removed from their property.
Despite how divided this country has become, the opinions of all should be respected. The theft of personal property is a misdemeanor and will be subject to arrest and prosecution. In addition, verbal harassment of residents (haranguing, cussing and photographing of residents of different opinions then theirs) needs to stop.
A resident asked, why we are being charged for the pass-thru on the RV area when it is unknown and not on the calendar to be completed.
Speeding is still a problem……………..SLOW DOWN
The next HOA meeting will be on October 8, 2020 at 7:00 pm
