The minutes from the September 10th meeting. Motion to approve by Lilith, seconded by Tony and approved by the board.

Guests: 10 guests were in attendance.

Treasurers Report: None

Social Committee Report: Luau dinner on September 26th was a big success. 40 people with four dinners to-go. As a surprise all dinners were fully refunded. October 24th is the next event. Fiesta dinner. Tacos, rice and beans, salad, salsa and chips. Beer, wine and soda included. Residents $12, Guests $15. Cutoff date to have your money in is October 17th.

DPG Report: None

GSMOL Report: No meeting this month

New Business: A resident inquired if the benches around the park could be replaced. The only decent one is the one Ed Aasted takes care of. In addition, Ed Aasted donated a new sound system/microphone to the Social Committee. (Thank you Ed for all you and Linda do for the Park)

Gopher problems continue… install owl boxes?

Mail Boxes need painting. Is the water project done? Can the street be reopened? Pool area? Cement was recently poured but residents are feeling things are way behind with many Board members being approached with the dissatisfaction felt by many residents. Lack of onsite manager brought up. Residents are very upset with the answer that mostly county’s fault. Lack on entry to the Clubhouse is particularly hard on residents with walkers or heavy loads. Question is can the front at least be done quickly so all can gain easy access to the Clubhouse again. An added plus would be Cristina could get out of the cave and terrible working conditions downstairs.

Problems not addressed in a timely manner: Where are the new street signs? Were supposed to be done by now. The Board noted the new No Parking signs which warn that your vehicle could be towed. Question was when? It is thought that 3 warnings (all kept track of at the Office with pictures taken by Security which automatically has a date stamp on it) After 3 notices your vehicle WILL be towed. Continuing and ongoing problems with the Clubhouse not being unlocked during stated hours 7 days a week from 7:00 am to 9:00 pm! One resident called the “Emergency number” twice and no one picked up (??) and then Frank was called twice and no one picked up so resident crawled through a window to gain access a little after 8:00 am on a Saturday. There is no way a resident with a problem and doesn’t want a Work Order can address it. Again, no onsite manager. Back entrance on Cathedral Oaks is looking very shabby. Just a slow walk down the street would show lots of dead, dying bushes, lots of weeds and sprinkler that apparently doesn’t work very well. Where is the new map at the front and the back one refinished? Is the bright blue house color truly approved? The committee thought that it was in the rules that it should be in earth tone shades? What happened to the white rockers on the upper deck? Can someone pay better attention to Flag protocol as to when the flag should fly at half-mast at the correct times? It is lowered many times days late and many times left down for too many days. Disrespectful.

On the plus side the TV in the dining room was replaced very quickly after the Office was told about it. Great response.

Speeding is still a problem……………..SLOW DOWN

The next HOA meeting will be on November 12, 2020 at 7:00 pm

Thank you for supporting your HOA

Social Committee Report: Luau dinner on September 26th. Menu will be Kaula ham, fried rice, tropical fruit salad, Hawaiian sweet rolls and Pineapple Upside-down Cake. There will be a pre-dinner drawing for a Free Dinner. 20 names will be drawn.

GSMOL Report by Ellen Duke:

The 2019-2020 Legislative Session has ended with GSMOL victories:

AB 2782 (including provisions of SB 999) – Establishes minimum state standards for park conversions and closures and eliminates loophole that denies mobilehome residents with long term leases the protection of rent control.

AB 3088 (includes some protections of SB 915) – Protects tenants, including mobilehome residents, from eviction and property owners from foreclosure due to economic impacts of COVID-19. (SB 915 would have also required deferred rent payments for mobilehome residents affected by Covid-19 but legislature ran out of time before vote.)

GSMOL-Opposed AB 2895: Proposed to extend the same percentages and numbers in rental base adjustments as applied to apartment renters, which would have increased rents for mobilehomes. Bill was withdrawn before vote.

There were two GSMOL-Sponsored Townhalls this week:

1) Thursday, September 10th at 1 PM – HCD* State Audit Report Virtual Townhall:  Streamed live from State Senator Leyva’s office with State Auditor Elaine Howel. The audit was the result of GSMOL’s advocacy efforts and revealed significant issues that are being addressed. (*California Dept of Housing and Community Development – which inspects mobilehome parks.)

2) Friday, September 11th at 1:30 PM: Telephone Townhall with GSMOL Attorney Bruce Stanton:  GSMOL’s attorney will explain what the passage of AB 2782 and AB 3088 means for manufactured-home owners.

DPG Report: Meeting will be Sept. 16 at 7:00 in the Clubhouse. Please bring your radio.

New Business: These items were discussed via Teleconference this afternoon. In attendance were, Bob Mann, Cheryl Mracheck, Mary Manzo and Antonio Frausto.

Roads: Slurry seal gooks great, with few exceptions. Antonio and Frank will inspect and address the problem areas.

Water Project: Is complete except for the final connection of the emergency standby generator and fencing.

Pool Project: More delays with County Environmental Heath involved with the permitting and inspections. Plumbing problems have been completed. Now in the process of grading, compaction and installing the drains. Pavers will be installed and interior of the pool will take place soon. Late October is now the time for completion.

RV Parking area: This project is on hold until the final completion of Water and Pool project.

Street signs: Signs and numbers are being redone and should be completed by the end of September. The street known as Indian Wells will become a continuation of Stagecoach. Hang Tree will become Olive Branch.

Signs painted on roadways that read 10 MPH. Why these are not painted in other areas and the possibly of painting them a different color that would be more visible.

San Vicente has hired an Assistant Manager. Until training is complete the office hours will be 1:00-5:00 Monday-Friday. The phone message will be changed to reflect the new hours.

Sign on San Vicente property between San Vicente and RSB: Please do not use the arroyo to travel from our park to Rancho Santa Barbara. This is private property and a liability issue.

There was a discussion on what to do with the unused property next to the Water plant. Possible uses could include a new home site for an onsite manager.

Questions from residents:

A resident has notified the board about some political signs being removed from their property.

 

Despite how divided this country has become, the opinions of all should be respected. The theft of personal property is a misdemeanor and will be subject to arrest and prosecution. In addition, verbal harassment of residents (haranguing, cussing and photographing of residents of different opinions then theirs) needs to stop.

A resident asked, why we are being charged for the pass-thru on the RV area when it is unknown and not on the calendar to be completed.

GSMOL Report by Ellen Duke:

Bills supported by GSMOL are moving successfully through the California Legislature. Park owners are pushing against them so it is important that we show our support.

Letters are awaiting your signature at Ellen Duke’s’ front deck at Space #194 (Indian Wells Road). The signed letters can be placed in the marked box. Ellen will scan and email the letters to our lobbyist. Here are the four bills:

SB 915 (Leyva) prevents evictions and requires deferred rent payments for mobilehome residents impacted by COVID-19. 

SB 999 (Umberg) eliminates the loophole that denies mobilehome residents with long-term leases local rent stabilization protection.

AB 2690 (Low) eliminates the loophole denying local rent stabilization protections if a park or space was created after the year 1990.

AB 2782 (Stone) establishes state standards for park conversion, including requiring a relocation plan, report on impact on low-income housing stock and, if no space is available in another park, ensuring impacted residents receive in-place market value of their mobilehome. (Note: Santa Barbara County already has a comprehensive ordinance and would not be affected by this bill.)

Mobilehome owners are an important voting block and your help is needed to make sure these needed changes happen. Please call Ellen at 805-637-3327 for information or if you need to have these letters brought or emailed to you for signature.

DPG Report: No report

President’s statement:

New Business: The last few months have been difficult for all, but life must go on. SVMHA understands that extra caution must be taken for our protection. The Board will continue to take care of business and members will be updated via email.

It appears that someone in the park has complained to management about two street names that appear to be offensive. Hang Tree and Indian Wells are in the process of being changed.

Someone who has access to the gym has stolen two #20 dumbbells. After all the effort from management to make a commitment to purchasing and maintaining this equipment, this is the thanks they get. Please if you know who has stolen this equipment, please notify management or the HOA. Thank you.

Roads to be slurry coated in August. If any resident notices problems in the road surface, please notify management or the HOA so these issues can be fixed before the slurry seal is applied.

Water Project is completed, except for the installation of the Emergency stand by generator.

Pool Project is moving rapidly now. Upon the deck removal, county inspectors noticed that the plumbing was not buried deep enough. The project has been delayed because everything had to be brought up to 2020 standards. Now a projected August completion is expected.

RV Parking area Management is looking for a different contractor to do this project. Late summer estimated completion.

Questions from residents:

Trees on Cathedral Oaks need trimming, Lilith will notify Cristina.

The walk way between our park and Rancho was blocked. Why? Many residents use this path to walk between parks for exercise. RSB does not appear to have a problem with this. Could San Vicente and RSB jointly create a permanent pathway between the parks? The board was instructed to send a letter to management with our concerns.

A question was asked about the size of the pavers that will be used around the pool area. Will there be a gap between the pavers for drainage and would such a gap become a hazard for a cane or walker with narrow wheels?

Document Review Committee/GSMOL Report:

Ellen thanked the Document Review Committee for their work.  Committee members included:  Tony Armendariz, Patty Byrum, Rama Fox, Tony Jimenez, Dick Mires and Ellen Duke.  GSMOL provided access to the experience attorney and our HOA provided the funds.  Ellen repeated that the new park documents were significantly better than those received last year.  St. Vincent’s modified the majority of approximately 30 concerns.  Continuing concerns include 1) the definition of common area facilities not including the Gym or RV Park, 2) the subletting prohibition, 3) burdensome requirements for prior written approval, 4) a manager who has to refer many managerial decisions to others, 5) the park indicating that it does not consider itself responsible for providing a resident directory, and 6) liability language in the Rental Agreement (our attorney, Bruce Stanton, advises us that this language will not take effect if the Homeowner does not sign the Rental Agreement).

It is important that everyone read the documents when they are distributed.  The Committee may have missed something.

GSMOL Attorney Bruce Stanton advises existing residents of California mobile home parks that they are not required to sign new park documents and should not sign new documents unless it is beneficial to them.  In our case, he is advising us not to sign the documents.  However, we can sign or initial that we have received the documents.  Ellen is checking on whether new residents who had to sign the 2017 Rental Agreement in order to move into the park may be advised differently.

Volunteers are needed to help distribute a flyer door-to-door to all homeowners which will include our attorney’s recommendations.  Please email Ellen Duke (ebduke@yahoo.com) or message or call Ellen at 805-637-3327 if you can help. This is an important service to our whole community.

Rama Fox, Space #34, is chairing the Subletting Committee, which is preparing for a presentation to Management.  The option of subletting can make a big difference in a person’s life – and their family’s.  Please send letters regarding the importance of subletting and how its prohibition will affect you to Rama Fox as soon as possible:

Rama Fox, Space #26, or by email: rama@ramafox.com

Please join HOA and GSMOL!   The next GSMOL Meeting is Thursday, August 23rd, at 6 PM.  

DPG Report: Bob Enderby is working on ideas to help residents evacuate in case of emergency. Suggest using Cathedral Oaks gate to avoid congestion on Old Mill with Rancho and Apartment residents. The other gate at the end of Round Tree would also be open and an option, with limited clearance of 11’ and no pavement. An evacuation map will be included in next month’s Voice.

Business: Our new park directory has some issues. The time has passed for residents to submit corrections. Hopefully the 2019 directory will cross reference by name and space number, which seems to be where all the errors are.

The HOA sent an email to Mary Manzo on August 1st regarding the Arroyo, security of the “man” gates and the lack of fencing behind the RV storage area. A response was returned the next day. The bid for the work in the arroyo will most likely take place in September. Management is submitting a work order for the “man” gates. They are also requesting bids for higher fencing behind the RV area.

HOA membership is down from last year. We need to seek out and talk to neighbors who may have forgotten to pay their dues in 2018.

Inspections: Management has streamlined the inspection report to make it easier for the residents to understand. Many sheds are “grandfathered “in for now, but when property is sold management could make the owner fix any discrepancies before sale is complete.

Onsite manager issue. Does San Vicente have to provide an on-site manager? St. Vincent’s response was that their manager could respond, if needed. Our manager and Director of maintenance both live in the Ventura area and was impossible for both to respond during the Montecito US 101 closure in January.

We would like to have an update on the status of the gym equipment. Many residents are eagerly awaiting the news.

Social Committee Report: Charlene Hovey: next event will be Saint Patrick’s Day dinner of corned beef and cabbage, mashed potatoes, green salad. Cost is $10.00 per resident or guest. Details will be in the Voice. Special note: a surprise is planned for our diners. Isabel is working well with Charlene in putting an article in the Voice. The Art Committee is now covered by Insurance for alcohol at their Art Shows. Dean and Charlene continue with their creativity and dedication they are giving to the Voice!!

GSMOL Report: Members are continuing to knock on doors to chat with residents to join.

DPG Report: Bob Enderby is holding a Fund raiser for DPG with a pancake breakfast on Saturday, April 14th from 10-2:00 pm. Cost is $7.00, you can make your checks out to HOA but put DPG on your memo line. The DPG is still in need of 4 Block Captains and also Co-Captains. Next meeting will be June.

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.

GSMOL Report: Ellen reported 2018 dues for GSMOL are $25. The attachment below are responses to questions from Ellen from Rosa Paredes.

Dear Ellen,

I am sending you this email on behalf of Mary Manzo who is out of the office due to a family emergency.

No updates to report at this time regarding the amended Rental Agreement and Rules & Regulations. We would like to inform the Homeowners that San Vicente Mobile Home Park has a new Security Patrol. The Park will now receive a nightly patrol (7 days a week) of its grounds for a period of 2 hours. There is not a set schedule with regards to the patrol times, and we have instructed our security detail to randomly select times throughout the night to ensure that their patrol schedule is not recognized or remembered. All unusual activity will be reported to management or police enforcement if necessary.

In addition, meters have been read today, February 7, 2018 in order to process statements earlier during the month. The schedule will keep on moving up for meter reads so eventually we can get them to be read at the first of the month.

All space rent increase notices have been distributed. Please contact Management if you have any questions.

We will continue to send a Park-wide update to address the comments noted in the HOA minutes. This notice will be distributed with the monthly statements.

Regards,

Rosa

 

DPG: Bob Enderby has volunteered to take on our much needed DPG and to continue it. Big round of applause from the audience as this is for our protection and safety and had been disbanded.

Business:

Pool is now open and a thermometer placed in the pool shows it right at 86 degrees. But with all the rain the deck has suffered. It now looks shabby and shows all the deck cracks. The pool tile was not blasted clean and looks shoddy. Jacuzzi is still not hot enough, should be maintained around 102 degrees. The office staff has adjusted their hours so office is now open during the lunch hour. Also, the office door has been left open which many residents noticed with approval. Dutch doors or the beautiful French door to be used (like previous managers had) was suggested by many residents to be an even better idea.

Streets have grown much worse with the last storm. Last month, residents’ wrote down their concerns which were tabulated by the HOA and sent to St. Vincent’s So far, no response on either letter. Parking concerns were brought up. Normally, there should be no cars left on street after 10:00 pm. It was noted that a memo from the Office put in our tubes stated the time was 8:00 pm but think that is incorrect. Of course, understood if you are having a gathering at your home there may be cars parked later. But all agree that there is to be NO OVERNIGHT parking on the streets in front of any one’s home. Visitors must park overnight in visitor parking with the yellow, laminated Visitor Pass with your space number on it given out by previous administration. It was noted some homeowners did not receive this pass so office might want to find out who didn’t get one. HOA does not know if Office is giving to new residents just coming in.

New Business: Questions put forth from homeowners to HOA concerning services provided regularly once a year.

Spring Clean Up Will the usual MarBorg dumpsters be put out in Spring for residents to throw away large items, collection of old paint and old electronics all during the same week?

Will a shredder company be here for residents to use, as in the past?

Will there be the once a year written visual inspection of condition of each and every home site for cleanliness, weeds, sagging skirting, rotted stairs, dead bushes, out of control hedges etc. ? Normally staff notifies any owner of weeds and other problems on a one to one basis throughout the year as needed. But it appears nothing of the sort is being done by a casual WALK around the park. Again, probably connected to not enough maintenance staff.

Care Program may help residents with their electric bills. See info on the link.

https://www.sce.com/wps/portal/home/residential/assistance/care-fera

Rent Increase with many residents noticing that the CPI used was changed from the CPI used by past managements. CPI-U or CPI-W.

An HOA Board Member would like the HOA to review letter detailing pool problems to be sent to management.

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
