Unfinished/Old Business: Derek Hanley and Mark Allen are pursuing SVMHP residents’ concerns over the Flood Zone new rules. There are about 35-36 homes in San Vicente with an additional 46 or so in neighboring Rancho that are affected by the rule that New homes have to be lifted up approximately 6’ which also includes homes that are in the Flood Zone that are substantially remodeled. Costs associated with this is about $25,000 per unit. There will be a meeting on May 26 with Residents and Country to discuss concerns. This policy is FEMA driven and it is up to the Flood Zone Manager to decide each house individually and he is on Medical leave for over a year. Hopefully meeting will end logically since there is some concern over earthquake problems when your home is 6 feet up in the air. Supervisor Janet Wolf was invited but declined.
Board Members will be going door to door to talk to residents about joining and discuss any concerns they may have. There will be a Board Member for each section of the Park.
Negotiations Bob Mann reported that the Sisters of Charity did not renew the lease with FessPar. The Sisters will take over running the Park at the end of June, 2017. We are protected by laws and there is no expectation of severe or difficult changes will be made here.
Addendum to the regular May 12th minutes:
A resident brought up questions about landscaping issues. Does the park management has the right to trim or remove vegetation for safety concerns?
A resident brought up concerns about park management and where his rent money is spent.
