New –The Board has voted and approved an additional new policy that all residents of San Vicente are invited to attend HOA meetings – but ONLY Association members are allowed to address the Board and to speak in public at the HOA meetings. Moved by Bob Mann and seconded by Lilith Imbrogno, Approved.
Open Discussion – Bob asked for any comments and/or from members about the upcoming Transition. He asked the members to be brief and original. Members shared concerns about:
- Timing of new Lease – legal opinion and timing
- Machines in the Clubhouse gym – in need of repairs, dangerous, whose responsibility
- Timing of subletting home when you live in the park – 1 year?
- Should we write to St Vincent’s about upcoming Park expenses/capital improvements to find out what will be passed on to the residents
- Many concerns about the Form that Sister Margaret mentioned at the “Meet and Greet” meeting – how much is your annual income? When and why do we have to sign? What is the result of signing for the residents?
- Would someone like to take over preparing “The Voice”? Jeff Oien from Village Properties Real Estate has agreed to continue to finance the printing of the Voice. Volunteers are requested to help with the continuation and preparation of the Voice.
Much discussion about the questions that have been submitted to Stuart by residents and forwarded to Sister Margaret and not been specifically answered. It was moved by Ellen and seconded by Don that the Board send a letter to Sister Margaret containing the questions that Stuart has submitted and formally request answers. There is to be no new questions. Motion passed.
Reminders – New leases will be sent Certified Mail. You will have to sign to receive. That signature does NOT mean you accept the new Lease agreement. The Association wishes residents to not sign any paperwork that goes back to St. Vincent’s until the association has proper legal advice.
