Our website was developed to serve as an informative resource for owners and residents of Strathmore Townhomes Homeowners Association (HOA), Rancho Palos Verdes, California.
This site was last updated on April 4, 2017.

Distribution of new pool keycards (for entrance to pool gates and pool bathrooms) took place Saturday, Feb 11 and Sunday, Feb 12. Owners, please contact the management company if you didn't get a chance to pick up your key.  Tenants cannot pick up the card key without written approval from the owner (call MPI for details).  Only one key card will be provided for each unit.  Lost keys require a fee to replace.  As of February 15, the prior pool key no longer works at the pool, though it still opens the pedestrian gate on Tollhouse Court.
Supervised Play in Streets
Please supervise your children at all times when they are playing in the complex. We have had near-miss traffic events with children darting out on bikes, scooters, etc.  Unsafe play in the streets of the complex by children and adults may be fined. Help us keep everyone safe. Remember that biking, skating, skateboards, scooters are not allowed on complex sidewalks to protect pedestrians and those playing from injury.
!!!! Continued Mail and Package Theft:  We have NEW reports of mail and package theft for items left outside the units -- multiple units affected.  You may wish to try to be home to receive your packages, request packages to be left with neighbors, etc. You can install a camera doorbell to monitor your package delivery. Only doorbell cameras are approved for exterior mounting in the complex.
Coyote Sightings in Strathmore: Be aware that coyotes have been seen in the evening and the morning within Strathmore, as reported by residents. Please take precautions especially for pets and small children. It is illegal to provide food/water to coyotes (that will encourage them to return)... and please do not leave food or water out for other animals, that the coyotes may take.
Termite, Rodents, Pests
Owners please contact MPI if you have a pest, rodent, or termite problem.
Mailbox Blockage by Refuse Cans and Adequate Space from Buildings
The US Postal Carrier has asked us to be sure the mailbox slots are not blocked by the trash or recycling bins as this impedes the mail delivery. Please place the bins at least 3 feet from the unit to avoid stucco damage as they are picked up by the truck.
RPV Hours for Trash Can Placement and Removal
Remember that bins cannot be placed out for collection earlier than 4:00 pm on the day before the scheduled collection and empty bins must be removed from the curb no later than 10:00 pm on the day of collection.  Friday is our regular day of collection.
Reminders for Strathmore Parking
  • Motor vehicles which cannot fit (oversized) within the garage of a unit may be parked on the streets only in the green curb area on Thistlewood between Huntsman and Tollhouse. Cars that are not over-sized should NOT BE PARKED along the green curb.
  • 72 hour limit: No vehicle may be parked in the Common Area longer than 72 hours in the same parking space.  Request prior Board approval to park longer if going on vacation.
  • Parking Behind Garages IS PROHIBITED by HOA rules and the Fire Department. This is a fire lane and must be kept clear for emergency vehicles.  Do NOT park behind your garage unless you have the garage door open and you are there for loading/unloading, etc. or you are running inside for no more than 10 minutes. You can be cited.  Yes, parking is limited, but you cannot park behind a garage.

April Newsletter: Click here to open the April 2017 newsletter.  The document is to be emailed only to owners with an email on file at MPI.  To save printing and mailing costs, we are going paperless as much as possible and trying to handle communications online.

Monthly Board Meetings every 3rd Wednesday:  Regular Board Meetings of the HOA are now scheduled for the THIRD Wednesday of the month, 6:30 pm at the pool. Homeowners may address the Board at the homeowner forum during the meeting with a two-minute time limit to present issues (motion can be made to extend). Concerns can also be addressed in writing with a letter to the management company.
Address Numbers Reminder
All units must display the brass address numbers that were provided to you. Alternative address numbers attached to a unit are not allowed.
Gas Meter/Earthquake Valve
Earthquake valves at the gas meters are installed securely and should not trip unless there is an earthquake of 5.4 magnitude or higher. However, there may be circumstances where the valves are accidently tripped. If this does occur, please understand that if you call the Gas Company to reset the valve, you might be assessed a reset fee of $63 or more. If it is determined that the earthquake valve was tripped and you reset the valve yourself, the Gas Company would then come out and restore your gas appliances for free. Please only reset the valves if they were tripped by accident, do not reset them if they were tripped by an earthquake. Resetting the valves is very easy; there is a green colored screw on the valve that says reset. Turn that screw clockwise with a flat head screwdriver. The screw is spring released, meaning that once it's turned it will pop back into place. The valve is then reset.
Patio Tree Responsibility
Owners are responsible for the trees/landscaping located on their patios and the possible financial liability. Please read the notice on this matter (sent Feb 2008, October 2009, and in September 2013).
