Car Theft
The Board would like to alert residents and owners that car theft/burglary has been reported in the complex and for cars parked on Toscanini.  Catalytic converter thieves are in the area and several vehicles parked on Toscanini have been hit.
Recently, there was an attempt to steal a Board member's truck parked in the green zone on Thistlewood.  The theft was not successful, but there was damage to the vehicle.  (This is the second time this vehicle has been the object of this crime.) 
Please be watchful and call the Sheriff if you see anything out of order.

Monthly Board Meetings
SECOND Wednesday of the month, at 6:30 pm NEW TIME 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.

Pool / Spa
The pool heater was scheduled to be turned on in April, after replastering.  Due to COVID-19, the Board has closed the pool area altogether. and the pool heater will not be turned on as planned.  The spa heater has also been turned off until further notice.  Closed means closed.  There is no one to wipe down door handles, furniture, bathrooms....  no guidelines in place from the County yet on how to reopen and when.
The LA County Dept of Health has not lifted pool restrictions.
We have scheduled a pool / spa replaster during this downtime.  Once the permits are approved, this work will commence and the process and curing will take several weeks. 
Click this link to view the pool rules.  Absentee owners, please be sure your tenants are provided these rules. Pool hours are strictly 7 am to 10 pm.  The spa jets and heater cycle off at 10 pm.  If you need a pool key, please contact Chuck Arick at chuckhandyman@aol.com. Each unit may only have one pool keycard.
Guest policy is the most violated and cited issue. Pool guests and anyone under 14 years of age must be accompanied by an ADULT resident AT ALL TIMES.  Residents may not grant pool access to guests or anyone under 14 (even a resident child) without an adult resident present during the duration of their pool use. More than six guests is deemed a pool party requiring advance Board approval.
If you wish to have a pool party (a party is a resident with more than 6 guests at the pool), you must obtain prior approval via this Pool Party Request Form  (which includes the policies and restrictions).  Please submit this request form to Lena Bethel, our Board Vice-President, for approval, at least two weeks before your proposed party date.  We limit the number of parties to one at a time and have specific hours for pool parties, in consideration of all residents.

Agenda and call in information will be provided closer to the meeting.

Complex Projects
Complex Projects
Several projects are underway or scheduled.
  • Painting and wood/stucco repair has been completed on Bearhaven, Radbrook, and near completion for on Oldstone.  Kingsdown is next on the schedule.
  • Pool/spa replastering will begin as soon as the permits are acquired.
  • New garage roofs have been installed on one building on Friarstone, Radbrook, and Kingsdown. The priority is based on buildings with leak issues. We have not yet identified the next building for new garage roofs.
  • Mainline sewer cleanout / maintenance is in progress.
  • Tree trimming is in progress, followed by cleaning of the rain gutters.  It was delayed by cars not being moved resulting in the workers having to cancel trimming in those areas.
  • Termite tenting of all buildings will be accomplished over several years. Priority for tenting is based on greatest need. First, will be Hollifield and one building on Friarstone (28614 To 28634).  Coast Chem is the vendor, which will be reaching out to hold affected owner meetings for scheduling and instructions -- most likely this project will be delayed for months due to COVID-19.

Parking Violations
Many cars are parked in the red on corners overnight, in front of no parking signs, and in front of garages.  Some cars parked on corners are in the traffic path.  Cars in front of garages impede others from entering and exiting their garage.
Please be warned that these are all violations and we can and will tow your vehicle and/or impose fines preceded by a warning sticker on your car.  A red curb is a red curb same as on a city street -- NO PARKING.  If your car has been towed, call the phone number on the no parking signs posted in the complex for retrieval.  Parking is in designated spaces ONLY. 
Parking in front of your garage when you are not present attending the car is not allowed because this is a fire lane. Maximum of 10 minutes unattended.
Note that per Civil Code, once you receive an HOA citation, you are requested to appear at the next Board meeting to discuss the matter.  If you do not appear, the fine may be levied without any discussion. 
We know parking is at a premium.  Per HOA rules, your garage must be able to house at least one vehicle -- i.e., not used primarily for storage or as a living space.  As an alternative when there is no parking available, please park on Toscanini and you can park on Caddington and enter the complex through the pedestrian gate near Tollhouse -- the old pool key works on this gate -- contact Emmy at CMI if you need a key to this gate.
