Parking Permit Program – Update


To date, we have less than 15 homeowners apply for a Visitors Parking Permit. Anyone interested has until the July 31 deadline to apply. We will issue a final warning to those violating the Visitor Parking Only rules. In addition to the possible towing of vehicles at $300 each instance, violators are also subject to monetary fines per the CC&R, Fines and Enforcement Policy  and other governing documents.



Continued Trash Violations

We still have several homeowners/residents who repeatedly put their trash before the scheduled pick up days of Monday and Thursday. For example, several people put out their trash on Friday for the Monday pickup. Over the next few days, stray animals and the local wildlife spread trash all over the place and create both an eye sore and sanitation/health issues.

And, it’s not like people can say they do not know when trash is picked up; we sent out 416 notices, one to each and every property within this 22 acre subdivision.  In this Notice, we told residents that repeated violations will result in fines.

Some people who received subsequent letters containing Warnings of a Violation of our Bylaws and Declaration have chosen to continue putting out the trash days before the scheduled pickups.

So, we will be sending out Certified Letters to the repeat offenders next week (after the 15 days given to cure the violations). While we had rather not resort to fining our homeowners and residents, I see no other choice.



Violation Warning Letters

After conferring with our attorney, Jeff Lacy, we had to rethink how to best accomplish the implementation of the recent Fines and Enforcement Policy. Once we checked into things we needed to send a Warning letter out first and then follow it with the statutory letter.

When we do send out the statutory letter by Certified Mail and First Class Mail, the recipient will have 30 days from the receipt of the letter to schedule a hearing before the Board; if no hearing is scheduled, the fines begin.

I wish there was another way to get people to follow the rules that have been around for over 40 years. Perhaps this will get their attention.
