Remember the pool and spa are for the use of RESIDENTS AND THEIR GUESTS ONLY. The spa is heated year-round. The pool heater has just been turned on for the season. Please be cognizant of the pool rules which are for the safety of our community. We will be rekeying the pool gates. More on this soon!
DO NOT SEND children younger than 14 out to the pool or spa without an adult resident in attendance at all times. This means an adult (who is responsible for the safety and of observance of pool area rules by the child) accompanies the child to and from the pool area, and remains with the child at all times. For example, your 15 yr old cannot bring your 8 yr old to the pool or babysit a child at the pool younger than 14. We will cite for this violation as it is a liability for the association, AND THIS HAPPENS ALL THE TIME!
- Entry to the pool is by key only (subject to $100 fine for violation). Contact the management company, if you have lost your key. There is a replacement fee.
- The pool area is open for use from 7:00 a.m. until 10:00 p.m. Quiet hours are to be maintained until 9:00 a.m.
- Spa timer: Please do not turn the spa on for more than 20 minutes and be sure to turn it off when not in use. Sometimes the timer sticks -- wasting energy $.
- Water waste: Please try to limit splashing water out of the pool to conserve water during this drought.
Before scheduling a garage sale, please read our garage sale policy
. Following the policy means less interruption for your neighbors. Contact the management company to schedule.

Coyote Sightings in Strathmore: Be aware that coyotes have been seen in the evening and the morning within Strathmore, as reported by residents. It is reported that a family of coyotes may be living in Eastview park. Please take precautions especially for pets and small children. Click here for information from the City of Rancho Palos Verdes on this growing problem. It is illegal to provide food/water to coyotes (and that will encourage them to return)... and please do not leave food or water out for other animals, that the coyotes may take.
!!!! Continued Mail and Package Theft: We have 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 and/or to request a signature for pick-up (e.g., don't leave them on porch), ask packages to be left with neighbors, etc.
Termite, Rodents, Pests
Owners please contact MPI if you ave 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 also remember to place the trash and recycling bins at least 3 feet from the unit. When the cans are picked up, they can make contact with the stucco and damage the paint if they are too close to the building.
RPV Hours for Trash Can Placement and Removal
Remember that trash, recycling, and green waste carts cannot be placed out for collection earlier than 4:00 pm on the day before the scheduled collection and empty carts 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
Enforcement of green curb area: Rule: Motor vehicles which do not fit within the garage of a unit may be parked on the streets only in those areas marked by a green curb.The green curb area is on Thistlewood between Huntsman and Tollhouse. Some vehicles are too big for our street parking and need to be in the specific green curb area. Cars that are not over-sized may 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.
Parking Behind Garages IS PROHIBITED. This is prohibited by HOA rules and by the Fire Department, as 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. We have been warned in the past by the Fire Dept. about blocking this lane and No Parking Fire Lane signs are posted. You can be cited. Yes, parking is limited, but you cannot park behind a garage.
