Pool / Spa
Due to COVID-19, the Board has closed the pool area altogether. and the pool heater and spa heater have not been turned on.  Closed means closed. 
 
Even though LA County Public Health has issued guidelines for reopening multi-unit residency pools, these guidelines are very impractical for the Board to implement and monitor, entailing a full-time monitor; new signage; daily scheduling of resident use; constant wipe down of door handles, furniture, bathrooms; no non-resident guests; only 1 person or household in the spa at a time; very reduced capacity of people in pool at once; masks required unless in the water; and more.  You can read these guidelines at http://publichealth.lacounty.gov/media/Coronavirus/docs/protocols/Reopening_ResidentialSwimmingPools.pdf
 
The pool and spa have been replastered and are still in the curing process.  The pool house has been painted, as well.  During this time, the pool gate key cards are inoperable except for vendor workers.
 
Based on legal opinion and any other updates, the Board will review the pool / spa use at each meeting. We realize not having access to the pool is a hardship, but the risk of infection and possible loss of life is certainly paramount.
 
Note that entering the pool area or violating any rules governing reopening may result in citation and fines per the HOA fine policy.
 
Absentee owners, please be sure your tenants are provided this information.

Complex Projects
Complex Projects
 
Following is a list of current and completed work projects in the complex.
  • Painting and wood/stucco repair has been completed on Bearhaven, Radbrook, Oldstone, and Kingsdown, Hollifield, and the odd numbered units on Huntsman, as well as the pool house. Painting of the remaining units will resume in 2021 due to budget considerations.
  • Pool/spa replastering project completed mid-July -- curing of plaster in progress.
  • New garage roofs have been installed on one building on Friarstone, and on 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 and cleanout additions are in progress.
  • Tree trimming and gutter cleanout was completed.  Pine trees slated for trimming in the spring will now be trimmed in the fall due to sap run considerations at this time of year.
  • A camera security system project is underway.
  • 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.

Due to COVID-19, the annual meeting of the Strathmore HOA and the Board election have been cancelled (annually held in July per the bylaws).  Associations have been canceling their annual meetings and elections and we are following suit.  Thus, our current Board of Directors will continuing serving for the next year.  No election will be held in 2020.

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.
