Painting with associated wood and stucco repair
 
The Bearhaven and Radbrook units have recently undergone wood / stucco repair and painting.  The remainder of the complex will be done in a phased approach over the next two years.
 
 

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 is off as of November 15, to be turned on again in the spring with warming weather.  Even though, we may have some warm weather continue, the budget requires turning off the heater for several months when pool usage is lower and there are fewer hours of sun on the pool to aid heating 
 
The spa remains heated year round.
 
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.

Upcoming Events
December Board meeting
Wednesday, December 11th, 6:30 PM at pool area
Agenda TBD.
 
NOTE:  The Social Committee is planning an HOA Winter Celebration event over the holidays.  More information soon!
 

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. 

2019-2020 Board of Directors
As of Nov 14, the Board positions are as follows:
  • President: Austin Burge
  • Vice-President:  Lena Bethel
  • Secretary and Treasurer: Luci Ursich
  • Member at Large: Chuck Arick
  • Member at Large: David Knoedler
A big thank you to David for volunteering and being appointed to the Board last night.  Glad to have you aboard.
 

New Vinyl Fences
All the vinyl fences have been installed!
 
The Board inquired about extensions to increase height, as requested by some owners.  But the company notified us that such an installation will void the fence warranty. Thus, the HOA will not offer this option. 
 
Note that you cannot nail or secure anything into the vinyl fence, hang anything on it, or place anything along the top cap.  Creating holes in or any other damage to the fence that will void the warranty will result in the homeowner being responsible to pay for replacement. 
 
If you have any questions, please contact Emmy at Cammarata Mgt. 

Emergency Preparedness -- Volunteer Team
PLEASE VOLUNTEER!!
The Board of Directors is spearheading a Strathmore Community Emergency Preparedness Plan/Team.  Please download and read this publication from Los Angeles County.  We are looking to build a team of 6 or 7 people to coordinate and act during emergencies.  We need volunteers outside of the Board of Directors for this leadership team -- the publication mentioned above provides some recommendations for assembling a team and formulating a plan.  Interested volunteers should email the HOA at hoa@strathmorehoa.org
