GSMOL Report: Ellen reported 2018 HOA dues are $15 and dues for GSMOL are $25. Anne Anderson is running for vice-president of GSMOL. Next GSMOL meeting is January 26th at 6:00 pm. The attachment below are responses to questions from Ellen from Rosa Paredes.

Business: The board placed blank paper on each table and requested that each table write down the concerns and issues they are having and the Board will then organize them for reporting purposes

Financial documents are available for review if you would like a copy. When turning in your HOA dues please fill out the form and include your email address. The forms are on the front counter and have all Board members info on the back.

Pool is now open and is reheating. Burglaries of unlocked cars. Since Dec 2nd and into January 12-15 cars have had items stolen from their cars. If this has happened to you please file a report with the Sheriffs’ Office and let the office here know. Also let the HOA know as it apparently is not on the “to do” list of San Vicente’s office to alert the residents that burglaries are being committed. Is it possible the gates could be reprogrammed? A gate remote control was stolen from one of the vehicles. Possibly the Security Guard who works for St. Vincent’s could make a trip over twice a night for security. Rosa is in charge of that. Maintenance shortage: our crew of 4 is not enough for the size of our park. Many complaints of Park’s condition is suffering badly (see last 2 month’s minutes) Office staff: Unprofessional, unfriendliness and lack of common sense of Manager. Sometimes door is locked even though employee is inside the office, too many times there is no one IN the office, reports of residents being treated more as annoyance and unbelievably that 200 ash masks that were hand delivered by a resident to the office to be freely given to residents during the height of the Thomas Fire were refused by office because of liability issues?? Who does or says that with a Park full of elderly and older residents? The Voice does not need to be approved by office as it is a publication from the residents for the residents. Also, residents would welcome management to put articles of what is going on to be printed in the Voice but to date hasn’t done so. Residents are asking if a new phone book will be printed for their use. Also since the office is not handing out (see last month’s minutes) the new resident packet for new people moving into the park will need a box out front for that. Emergency phone number is not working, (see last month’s minutes) little to no response when dialed by residents, discovered to be basically an answering service who select which messages are passed on. New personnel in the office for a staff of two is welcomed, however, could lunch hour be split so there is always one person in the office and not both go to lunch at the same time?

Disaster Preparedness Group, (DPG) has no administrator and are short Block Captains. Office is lax in explaining to new residents what the green “OK” is on your mail box flap and not to turn off gas to your unit in an emergency etc. etc. New residents still waiting for their names on mailboxes (see last month’s minutes) some waiting three to four months have begun to put their own homemade signs up contributing to the list of what is not getting attended to.

On a more upbeat great note the Social Committee and HOA now have the insurance policy for wine and beer to be served at their events. St. Vincent’s has graciously offered to compensate the Social Committee for it. That received a round of applause from the large group attending the meeting.

[Website Admin note: Rosa, Mary and Isabel’s email addresses were included in the version of these minutes distributed via email, but are deleted here in the online website version for their protection. They’re available from the HOA or the office.]

Speeding still a problem please ask all to slow down. Continuing complaints.

Thank you for supporting your HOA

Next HOA meeting will be February 8th, 2018 at 7:00 pm

Social Committee Report: Charlene Hovey; HOA Membership drive January 11th Residents only. Doris Jimenez prepares her famous Chili Dinner for $5.00. Happy hour is 5:00, dinner at 5:30 and HOA meeting starts at 6:30.

Business: With the absence of the Disaster Preparedness Group, should the HOA try to continue this program? Although the DPG has disbanded it was suggested that existing Block Captains during this fire emergency check in on their assigned units, especially residents with mobility problems.

Egress was discussed. The Thomas fire and power outages brought to our attention that some extra care needs to be paid to our gates and emergency exit. The night of the major outage, our Cathedral Oaks gate did not open properly. It has been fixed, but these items may require more attention than they are receiving. The gates on Old Mill Road will remain open until the Thomas fire is under control. The emergency gate for egress is at the Southeast corner of the park, by space #159. It had been blocked by the homeowner who had dug a trench all the way to the street. That trench was recently filled in properly. The lock on the gate has a combination 0911. This should be used only in the most critical of circumstances. Emergency phone number turned out to actually be an answering service which was not helpful to the residents who called it.

The pool and deck area are finished and look awesome, but unfortunately the area is closed for ash and smoke at this time. A 2nd Office person has been hired and will be on the job soon. St. Vincent’s is looking into a Robocall system for our residents for future emergencies.

Insurance policy for Alcohol being served at the Clubhouse for Social Committee events has been straightened out much to our delight, a policy will be purchased which covers only Social Committee and HOA events.

Burglaries-Saturday evening Dec 2nd. There has been 8-12 cars in the area of lower Stagecoach broken into with nary a word disseminated from the Office. Website and phone #of Sheriffs’ Office will be printed by the editors of the Voice for residents’ future use.

Water System When the power goes out the backup generator should come on automatically to keep water pressure up. All hydrants would not work if there is no power and the generator fails.

N95 Masks Cynthia Manzer, resident, drove out to Direct Relief and returned with 60 masks to give to the office for residents’ use. They were refused. As an alternative they were given out at the HOA meeting.

Parking/camping on Cathedral Oaks Kudos to Ed Aasted, resident, who kept up the pressure on Supervisors to get the old RVs camping out, the limos, trucks, old ambulance etc. etc. on CO. His diligence and constant communication is directly responsible for the new curbing and no parking signs which now prevent the illegal parking. Thank you also to Janet Wolf.

Resident’s Suggestions and thoughts: It appears to residents that Isabel has no authority to make decisions which delays response time for answers and on occasion are never answered. Many residents felt system is broken and not working. Several, again, mentioned Park seems to be going downhill in care and pride. Consensus is there is too much work for maintenance staff of four. (see last months’ minutes)

Concern from residents over the numerous dried and dead 5’ tall bushes immediately outside the wall on Cathedral Oaks. This concern also includes thick brush across Cathedral Oaks directly across from the Park which needs to be taken care of. It is the HOA’s understanding that that land is owned by St. Vincent’s.

New residents are not receiving the packet that Social Committee put together that includes HOA membership, Social Committee, DPG, Art Club and all the numerous activities that are available information. Suggestion was we post the entire packet for new residents only on the Bulletin Board outside the office. No one understands why the office no longer gives it out automatically to new residents.

Board Elections: Two new Board members will be installed at the January meeting: Dick Mires and Cindy Enderby. Bob, Cheryl, Don and Ellen will continue to serve in the upcoming term. Expiring December 2021.

Speeding still a problem please ask all to slow down. Continuing complaints.

Thank you for supporting your HOA

GSMOL Report from Ellen Duke:

 

Homeowners Association

GSMOL Chapter 1316 Report

San Vicente Mobile Home Park


The following update was provided by Rosa Paredes, President and Chief Executive Officer of St. Vincents/Vincent Ministries:

1.      In regards to whether or not San Vicente Mobile Home Park will allow subleasing, we are not ready to discuss this topic at this time since we are still discussing and reviewing it internally with our advisors and attorneys. 

2.       We are also continuing to update the Rental Agreement and Rules & Regulations.  We are anticipating that the draft will be available for the sub-committee’s review early next year.  As you know, we do not want to rush this process and are diligently reviewing these documents to ensure they are in compliance with the law.

3.       The updated Rental Agreement and Rules and Regulations will be distributed as they were last time in accordance with the Mobilehome Residency Law and a Meet and Confer will be scheduled after the sub-committee reviews the documents. 

4.       Assuming the meet and confer is scheduled in February/March 2018, means the new documents will be in effect approximately in August/September 2018 of next year.

5.     Also, please remind the Residents that they can email or contact the onsite manager directly for any concerns or comments.  She will communicate items as appropriate to Mary Manzo or myself.

6.     We have interviews scheduled for the office clerk this week.  Hoping to fill the position ASAP.

Note from Ellen Duke, GSMOL Chapter President, HOA Board Member: Due to last-minute scheduling problems, Rosa was not able to meet with me. We will reschedule before the next meeting. Meanwhile, you can send any questions or concerns about this update or issues not addressed by management to me at ebduke@yahoo.com.

It is great to see the improved maintenance on the clubhouse and repair of the pool deck. At the meeting, concerns were expressed about over-chlorination of the jacuzzi due to the need for a new part, and the effect of the reduction in maintenance staff and increased time needed for them to complete new paperwork. There were complaints about how the grounds are being maintained and the cut back in refuse service. Homeowners were advised to submit their specific concerns to management, and they can copy Ellen and/or advise her if concerned about the response.

Business: With the absence of the Disaster Preparedness Group, should the HOA try to continue this program? We have merged the funds from the DPG with the HOA. Steve Roth was in attendance and was thanked for his years of service to the DPG. Anyone that is interested please contact an HOA board member.

Resident’s Suggestions: Questions on what is taking so long to fix the pool deck. We passed on that management is also doing some work in the shower area, which might add some time to the finished product.

Residents voiced concerns that maintenance issues are being overlooked. Trees needing to be trimmed, bushes hiding stop signs, etc… General consensus is the maintenance crew is understaffed.

The Jacuzzi needs some repair. The chlorine level is so high that it hurts your eyes when you are in the water.

Garbage pickup question. Only 1 or 2 bags of clippings. 2 different residents were informed only 1 bag a week of yard clippings would be picked up?? Needs to be reviewed by St. Vincent’s.

Security cameras were brought up again. Will pass on to the management.

Board Elections: 6 positions need to be filled. Max will not be running and with the death of Paul we will need 2 new people to fill their positions. Please contact Board if interested in joining. Bob, Cheryl, Don and Ellen are again running for the board. Last day to sign up is November 10th.

Old Business: Gym equipment from Clubhouse is stored at St. Vincent’s. If you want your old equipment you can pick it up. Hopefully new equipment will be coming.

Speeding still a problem please ask all to slow down. Continuing complaints.

Thank you for supporting your HOA

GSMOL UPDATE FOR HOA MEETING OCTOBER 9TH 2017 by Ellen Duke, President of GSMOL Chapter 1316

Governor Brown will decide whether to sign AB 1269 this week. Thank you to everyone who wrote letters. Thank you for everyone who has volunteered to help during this challenging transition period.

Ellen has met twice with Rosa Paredes, Pres & CEO of St. Vincents/Vincent Ministries (VM), & Mary Manzo, Housing Director. Ellen believes they would like to work with us to complete the transition in a positive way for all of us. The current status is:

1) They are using the Parker Rice 2015 rules as a basis for the new documents – making changes as needed.

2) A small group of homeowners and our lawyer will be able to review and provide input on the new documents before they are finalized.

3) J&H is being replaced by a consultant to advise them on regulatory/legal issues but VM will manage the park themselves with a VM employee here.

4) They are looking into new gym equipment.

5) Subletting: We gave VM the nonprofit attorney’s opinion that VM can permit subletting and they are awaiting their lawyer’s evaluation and response.

6) The San Vicente office email address still refers to J&H but goes only to office in the clubhouse. A new email address is coming.

7) Tenting this week, pool repair next week. Door added for greater security in office.

8) Goleta Water fire backup is to be done in December. Then focus will shift to repair/replace of parts of the water system. Serious leaks have been found and been addressed pending the larger repair next year.

9) The billing system problems are being addressed by their vendor. Electricity – They were surprised that the format changed and that change will be reversed. The vendor as provided last month’s details will provide them in the future. Last month’s details can be picked up in the office and will also be provided with November’s bill.

Timing – Bills will be issued earlier in the future.

Ellen encouraged us to stay united as we await the new documents (for homeowner committee review). Again, as our lawyer has advised, as existing residents we do not have to sign new documents and should not sign them until they have been carefully reviewed, if ever. Ellen encouraged everyone to be encouraging and understanding of the learning curve of the new office staff and owners. Our goal is a good and mutually beneficial relationship.

Some concerns were shared by homeowners and they were encouraged to email both the San Vicente office and Ellen Duke. [*Ed Note-For Ellen you may use the form I have added at the bottom of this Post]

Resident’s Suggestions Security cameras. 2 people need to be working in the office, too much for a staff of one. Emails and phone calls are not being responded to. Concern that maintenance staff is down to 4.

Ellen suggested a resident committee to look into cost and maintenance of security cameras and signs that will flash your speed as persons drive down Stagecoach and Gatehouse (the freeway) This sign should be able to be moved about the Park. Discussion by many of consequences such as escalating fines to speeders!

Board Elections 6 positions need to be filled. Max and Paul will not be running again so will need 2 new people to fill their positions. Please contact Board if interested in joining it.

220 paid membership in our HOA This is great to show we stand together to get results that are beneficial to all residents. There are between 80-90

members in GSMOL.

Our new management should be referred to St. Vincent’s or Vincent Ministries.

Old Business Gym equipment from Clubhouse is stored at St. Vincent’s’ If you want your old equipment you can pick it up. Hopefully new equipment will be coming.

Speeding still a problem please ask all to slow down. Continuing complaints.

Garbage pick up questions. Only 1 or 2 bags of clippings. 2 different residents were informed only 1 bag a week of yard clippings would be picked up?? Needs to be reviewed by St. Vincent’s.

GSMOL/SCAMPR – Ellen Duke – the San Vicente Chapter 1316 had a great meeting. Judiciary committee passed AB1269, many thanks to those who wrote letters in support. It goes to Appropriations Committee next. Our Legislative Contact is Gary Champ with our Membership Chair Teri Champ, and Tony Armendariz is heading up the Document Review Committee. This committee will be ready to review papers when they come in and give to the attorney.

There was a conference call on July 11th for 1 hour to answer questions at $150.00 an hour. Owners can pass on property taxes to residents but we will wait and see concerning that. Rent increases which are allowed come with annual rent increase would take effect in 90 days. Water is included in rent even if not mentioned in your lease. Residents will be compensated in their rent for water, trash and sewage by reduction in base rent if you have to now pay an individual bill.

GSMOL attorney is ready to compare old VS new rental agreements when there are such leases to compare. We are hoping to obtain a copy of the income disclosure document discussed by St. Vincent’s during the April Meet and Greet.

  

Business:

New – Residents can always hire their own attorney if so wished.

New –Don Webb will contact Rosa or Rob to see when the new management takes over, date of expiration of lease on July 29th or later?

DPG – Whittier Fire In light of our current fire, maybe the block captains could walk and talk to their people advising of the emergency and make sure they have correct info. Link for fire info on our website is at svmha.com Also Public Information Line 805-699-6451. You can register your home phone to receive calls for emergency information at “awareandprepare.org

Safety at Home for Seniors. Meeting July 20th at Rancho Santa Barbara. Please see attached email.

Brought to the Boards’ attention that unsupervised kids have been destroying the weight room. Chalk block was broken, shuffle board sticks are missing, many of the ping pong balls were flattened and it was witnessed some children were THROWING the cue balls from the pool tables around the room. Where is the resident who is supposed to be supervising these probable grandchildren???? Again, cameras were brought up. Please remind yourself that YOU the RESIDENT must ACCOMPANY YOUR guests to the pool/clubhouse during the correct guest hours of the pool. Don’t make someone have to remind you…… that’s embarrassing.

 Please NO SPEEDING! in our park

The GSMOL San Vicente Chapter will meet next on 6/29/17 at 6:00 at the Clubhouse.

Announcements – Bob Mann

Rosa Paredes of St Vincent’s stated she appreciated the letters that have been sent by residents.  She further reported that J&H will not take over the new management until July 29.  Stuart and Miguel will remain until that time.  The new office hours are 8-noon Monday – Thursday.   

Business:
New
– Ronnie Sumter has resigned from the Board and the Board in closed session appointed Max Lynn to fill the remainder of the term, which expires in December 2017.

The board voted to appoint Paul Ortega as the association Vice-President.

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:

  1. Timing of new Lease – legal opinion and timing
  2. Machines in the Clubhouse gym – in need of repairs, dangerous, whose responsibility
  3. Timing of subletting home when you live in the park – 1 year?
  4. Should we write to St Vincent’s about upcoming Park expenses/capital improvements to find out what will be passed on to the residents
  5. 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?
  6. 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.

Please NO SPEEDING! in our park

Bob Mann, President, called the meeting to order at 7:00 p.m. The March 9th Board Association Minutes were read approved with several corrections. The Daughters of Charity should read Sisters of Charity, Ellen Duke corrected minutes to read the committee feels we have an issue with management instead of I feel, motion and 2nd to pay yearly insurance was omitted and the Treasures’ report of expenses of $2.50 should read $26.50.

Treasurer’s Report:

DPG Report: No report

Social Committee Report: Spring Brunch. A champagne brunch is scheduled for April 29. The cost is $12.00 for residents and $14.00 for guests. Mimosas will be served at 11:00 and brunch will begin at 11:30. The menu is scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, potatoes, cinnamon rolls and mimosas. Possible June Family Pool Party is being planned. Check the Voice for details.

GSMOL/Scamper Report: Ellen Duke encouraged everyone to join GSMOL as they represent mobile home owners in Sacramento and share information about pass throughs. She is looking for a volunteer to help set our own chapter here in our park.

Transition Committee: Mark referred to the notice in everyone’s tube concerning the upcoming Meet and Greet with the Sisters and new Park Management. Mark thanked everyone on the transition committee for their work. The transition committee officially folded and encourages everyone to submit any questions before April 24th. No questions will be considered at the meeting other than the ones already submitted. It was suggested that if you have friends in Rancho ask them how they feel about their management as we will have the same. June 1st is the date the Sisters of Charity take over our lease.

Old/New Business. HOA membership is very important as greater member numbers make our positions stronger when dealing with management and the Sisters of Charity. Your HOA strongly recommends you submit your questions by April 24th in anticipation of the Meet and Greet meeting on April 27th at the Clubhouse. Gary Champ suggested to send a list of our needed park repairs to J and H Management team as well as the Sisters of Charity.

Hal Mishkin donated an elliptical treadmill machine which is now in need of repair with a cost of $300-350.00. He is requesting HOA pay for the repair as it is a good overall machine. Current management will not assume responsibility or liability. It was decided to present this to the new management team and was tabled until the Sisters of Charity take over.

Taxes for the HOA are due on May 18th.

Announcements: Thank you to all those (157 ) who have paid their HOA Dues. There has been Cox.net email problems trying to send HOA minutes and announcements by Bob. There were 19 emails returned all that had Cox.net that were rejected and returned as undeliverable.

Speeding: Still lots of speeders particularly on Gate House. Please look at you speedometer as you are traveling on our roads. If it doesn’t read 10 or less then you are speeding.

Another resident witnessed two kids on skateboards flying down the middle of Gatehouse please report to management if you know who they are. There has also been seen a younger man jogging with a large blond Retriever on Gatehouse. There are no large dogs allowed even if they are just visiting you. Check the rules for details.
