Roofing Project Update

Roofing project is in progress. Below, after the initial application of the asphalt emulsion.

Below, the final completed product.

Tree Work

  • Valley Tree Service has completed all work (ahead of schedule), except for the following:
    • Monday, April 16
      • Tree behind 805 Indian Way
      • Inspect cable support for tree near 34 AHL
      • Inspect tree behind 1106-1108 IW

Flushing wipes

  • Please do not flush wipes down the toilet – they will clog the sewer line, resulting in expensive repairs.  This seems to be a widespread problem:

Siding/Trim Repairs (Red Dots)

Please note that we recently inspected siding and trim as part of our annual building maintenance project. The red dots on the buildings were made by our contractor to indicate those components marked for removal/replacement.

This is not graffiti.

SB563 Notice

Please note that under a recent change to California State Law (SB 563), the Board is not authorized to discuss or act upon non-emergency matters outside of regularly scheduled Board Meetings (which are usually held on the 4th Thursday of each month).

Communications to the Board submitted between meetings that do not constitute an emergency will be discussed at the next scheduled Board Meeting.  You are welcome to attend the meeting to discuss your issue – but you are not obligated to do so.

What this means – Owners are welcome to submit e-mails and correspondence to the Board at any time.  Routine maintenance issues (e.g., a broken sprinkler or a light out) will be handled without delay.  However, matters requiring expenditures over $1,000 or a decision by the Board (other than in an emergency) will be addressed at the next scheduled meeting.

Protecting California Families from the “Silent Killer”

In May 2010, an important new public safety measure was signed into law requiring all California homes to be equipped with carbon monoxide alarms. Note: CO alarms are required IN ADDITION to smoke alarms and are not intended to replace them. Carbon monoxide (CO) is known as the “Silent Killer” because it is an odorless, colorless and tasteless gas that can catch its victims completely unaware. CO is the leading cause of accidental poisoning deaths in the United States and accounts for up to 700 emergency room visits in California each year.  CO poisoning can cause severe and chronic brain, lung and heart injuries and can lead to death.

The only safe way to know if there is CO in your home is to arm your family with a working CO alarm.

Following is a summary of California’s new CO safety law.

Single-Family Dwellings – Required beginning July 1, 2011
Multi-Family Dwellings – Required beginning January  1, 2013

Any single-family dwelling, duplex, lodging house, private dormitory, hotel, motel, condo, time-share or multiple unit dwelling that contains a fossil-fuel burning heater, appliance, fireplace or attached garage.

Approved Alarms

Existing Homes: May be battery operated, plug-in with battery backup, or hardwired with battery backup.

Installation :
CO alarms must be installed outside each separate sleeping area in the immediate vicinity and on every level.
