Transition Committee: Mark referred to the notice in everyone’s tube concerning the upcoming Meet and Greet with the Sisters and new Park Management. Mark thanked everyone on the transition committee for their work. The transition committee officially folded and encourages everyone to submit any questions before April 24th. No questions will be considered at the meeting other than the ones already submitted. It was suggested that if you have friends in Rancho ask them how they feel about their management as we will have the same. June 1st is the date the Sisters of Charity take over our lease.

Old/New Business. HOA membership is very important as greater member numbers make our positions stronger when dealing with management and the Sisters of Charity. Your HOA strongly recommends you submit your questions by April 24th in anticipation of the Meet and Greet meeting on April 27th at the Clubhouse. Gary Champ suggested to send a list of our needed park repairs to J and H Management team as well as the Sisters of Charity.

Hal Mishkin donated an elliptical treadmill machine which is now in need of repair with a cost of $300-350.00. He is requesting HOA pay for the repair as it is a good overall machine. Current management will not assume responsibility or liability. It was decided to present this to the new management team and was tabled until the Sisters of Charity take over.

Taxes for the HOA are due on May 18th.

Announcements: Thank you to all those (157 ) who have paid their HOA Dues. There has been Cox.net email problems trying to send HOA minutes and announcements by Bob. There were 19 emails returned all that had Cox.net that were rejected and returned as undeliverable.

Speeding: Still lots of speeders particularly on Gate House. Please look at you speedometer as you are traveling on our roads. If it doesn’t read 10 or less then you are speeding.

Another resident witnessed two kids on skateboards flying down the middle of Gatehouse please report to management if you know who they are. There has also been seen a younger man jogging with a large blond Retriever on Gatehouse. There are no large dogs allowed even if they are just visiting you. Check the rules for details.

The next Board Meeting will be Thursday, May 11, 2017

Unfinished/Old Business: By-Laws 3 pages need update. Changes will be highlighted in red. Membership will need to vote on the changes. Ballots will be sent out later in the spring after 2016 Membership drive is completed. Board Members will go door to door to talk to residents about joining and any concerns they may have.

Missing/stolen items: Pool gauge has been returned. Member at the meeting asked about security cameras. If purchased they are more for the exercise room (where damage and theft has occurred several times) and hallways etc.

Negotiations still in progress hopefully in February work will be done.

Announcements/New Business:

Pat Haden was presented an award for her 24 years of service to the Homeowners Association. She decided to retire at the end of December. Pat will be greatly missed.

The board would like to meet with Rob Rice about J & H property management leaving the gates open all day at the Rancho Santa Barbara (RSB) park next door. Our board is definitely against leaving our gates open, as this is a fast track to Cathedral Oaks from residents of the apartments on Old Mill. Several residents spoke of their concerns on this matter. [website ed. note: I have spelled out RSB for clarity, and add here that though I missed this month’s meeting the concern mentioned seems related to the possibility that the J&H managers apparently recently hired by Rob Rice may take over SVMHP management if Rob’s contract is renewed by SV owners]

Bob encouraged everyone to check out “Yelp” for reviews of J & H property management.

It was also suggested that some of our board contact board members at RSB to see how J & H is doing so far.

General Discussion:

Social committee would like to use our tax ID number for donations for the Art receptions. The board will take this under advisement and get back to the Art Committee. Barbara Noyes advised that abuse could occur on donations using tax ID #.

Gil Zuniga asked if anything is being done in the exercise room. How many people have been signing in and why has management not removed old and broken equipment. A few weights have been removed. Possible unauthorized use by guests.

Don Webb suggested to keep doors to outside locked and lock door at the base of the steps, where only residents would have a key and access to the room. Motion was made and seconded to talk to Stuart about this problem.

Speeding please remind friends and family that speed limit is 10 MPH Do your part and ask known speeders to slow it down.

HOA Dues are due for 2016 Include your email address with your check for membership. Just drop your check in the HOA Box at the Clubhouse. Management does not want HOA checks in the rent envelope. Thank you for your consideration.

The meeting was adjourned at 8:00 pm.

Next Board meeting will be March 10th at 7:00 pm in the Clubhouse. Bring your questions and concerns.
