New Business: The HOA will reimburse John Wiley $18.00 for SVMHP website domain name. This is annual, motion made by Dick Mires second by Lilith, passed. Spring cleaning dumpsters are here. No contractor’s waste to be permitted as last year someone filled one of the dumpsters costing Mgmt. unnecessary expense. Please call office immediately if this is observed.

Questions put forth from homeowners to HOA:

Management Inspection of Units and Sites: Notice put in our tubes states that they will do 30 units a month so doing the math that will be

9 months, an extraordinary amount of time. Previous mgmt. did this task in 5-7 days, why is the process going to take so long? Since there are many unacceptable, not up to standard units now that should be written up in a timely manner will they be continued to be allowed if it is not their particular month to be inspected? (it is evident from a walk around the Park that many are sliding thru the cracks as shabby outward appearance continues month after month) HCD has a check list of what needs to be inspected and in good order, i.e.: handrails, stairs etc.

A good suggestion was made by a resident, since our crew every month has to read the meters and as such can clearly see poor upkeep could they make a note of the space number and give to mgmt. to look into further? Another resident noted that last year some residents were notified to get their sagging siding fixed and others that were unable or unwilling to clean up the weeds had our crew do it for them and then were billed for it.

The Redo of the cracks around the Pool: Appears only one side of the pool was done.

Dead/Dying Bushes: There are dead and dying rose bushes under the San Vicente signage at the back gate. Might they be replaced with living rose bushes?

Rosa’s, Mary’s and Isabel’s email addresses are available from the office.

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

Thank you for supporting your HOA

Next HOA meeting will be May 10th, 2018 at 7:00 pm

Motion to adjourn made by Tony, Lilith 2nd

Meeting adjourned at 8:10 PM

Drainage Above SVMHP

This afternoon we flew past SV and snapped pix of the drainage area above San Vicente. Here’s a wide shot.

Our main drainage is the small creek running up the center slightly toward the right. The main drainage from the mountains runs to the left behind the top of that first low hill of the San Marcos Foothills open space. In a major flood that’s where the vast majority of runoff would go. Even if SM Foothills was burnt bare, any debris flow would be relatively minor here at SV.

You can also see the smaller channel that drains to Cathedral Oaks from the left side of the pic. Also potential for flow down 154 that would collect below the overpass. All that water drains through the culvert that feeds the channel through our open space. In a major flood that would overflow and/or get plugged by debris so the water would then spread out and head downhill, probably mostly along roads as it spread out beneath the overpass.

A closer look shows how our main creek leads down to the Foothill/154 underpass.

There, in event of an overflow at the inlet to our culvert, the electrical substation might be impacted. That whole area would flood, and eventually some might enter SV and/or begin to flow to the left on Cathedral Oaks and/or right on Foothill. This seems to match the small SV flood risk areas on the map published here related to the 2015 El Nino prep meeting (click to view). Some of our streets might flow with water and Rancho next door might be more impacted in such an event.
