Business: The premium for D&O liability insurance to Brown and Brown for $1700.00 was approved for payment with Tony 1st and Lilith 2nd the motion.

New Business: The attractive glass French door has been reinstalled at the Office which looks really nice and welcoming. Our sad looking flagpole has been sanded, painted and the ball on top shined up along with an extra-large flag is now flying. (8 x 12) The serious gopher problems are continuing to be addressed which is good. Spring cleaning dumpsters will be coming. Reminder: Annual inspections of each home site for cleanliness, weeds, dead bushes, sagging skirting, unsafe stairs, hedges that desperately need trimming or other eyesores will be addressed. The inspections will be March 20-23.

Questions put forth from homeowners to HOA:

Landscape on Cathedral Oaks was started but large trees still hanging on residents’ roofs and clogging their gutters has yet to be done. The HOA advised that San Vicente is now contracting out the tree trimming in the park. (Per February 20th memo)

Parking was discussed by all residents at the meeting, particularly the ½ hour limit.

Water leaks are not being addressed in a timely manner and left to run down the streets for 4 and 5 days before they are fixed. Concerns about possible sinkholes. The HOA advises to not drive your car over existing leaks but around them.

Roads are a big concern also as they are in such bad shape. One good rain will lift even more road surface up. Can patch and seal or chip seal be done?

Condition of the Park many homes are for sale and it was thought that it may be partly due to condition of Park. Work on homes are allowed to take way too long (#215 and #99) sometimes pushing a year and longer. The question was raised if Management is even aware they should be checking on all construction to make sure Permits have been pulled as too many have no Permits and are just winging it.

Sorry, I spoke about the letters at Thursday’s meeting that the board sent to management and forgot to post them. Here they are. First about the pool condition and second about the office and communication issues.

Thanks San Vicente HOA

This email mentions the pool, so I’m including it too. -Ed
To: Rosa Paredes, Mary Manzo, Isabel Valenzuela

Concerns and observations

The recent pool area deck repair and painting left a very mediocre result.  The first rain washed the paint off the silicone repairs leaving a visible road map of the damaged surfaces.  This is probably why the decking was previously carpeted to hide the scars.  The previous carpeting was in place for an estimated 20 years.  Unfortunately, the cap-stone tiles around the edge of the pool were not regrouted to seal off the open cracks just above the water line in the pool.  It could have been easily repaired when the water was out of the pool. Also the pool tiles were supposed to be cleaned while the pool was empty. At this time only 2 umbrellas remain.  One is damaged at this time.  The umbrellas only last 1 or 2 seasons.

Thank you for your attention to these issues

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

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.
