BOARD OF DIRECTORS MEETING
 
Thursday, October 22, 2020 at 6:00 PM
 
Homeowners are given three minutes each in the open session to express their opinion, raise an issue, or give us feedback. The open session is always scheduled at the beginning of the Board meeting. The Board highly encourages homeowner participation.
 

 
License Plate Reader Installation
 
The Board of Directors would like to hear from you as homeowners about installing license plate readers at the intersection of Lansdale Rd. & Winstanley Way as well as the intersection of Lansdale Rd. & Sword Way. Having this camera system in place could possibly help law enforcement solve any crimes.
 
The cameras would record the license plate of each car entering or exiting the Association and the data would only be available to law enforcement in case there was a particular problem in the neighborhood. The data would not be available to the HOA Board or any individual in the Association.
 
The company, Flock Safety, who has installed these systems in many neighborhoods to help reduce crime, has submitted a proposal to install a License Plate Reader at Santa Fe Promontory with an annual cost of about $8000/year which amounts to about $2.40 /month for each homeowner. This cost will not cause a raise in the monthly HOA fees for the near future.
 
The Board of Directors will proceed to engage Flock Safety only if there is support for such a system from the homeowners.
 
Please take the survey at the bottom left of this screen or email Jeff Smith, Community Association Manager, at jsmith@menas.com or call (858) 270-7870 x 47 for any questions.
 
Editorial
The Board will not make a unilateral decision. No decision has been made either way. Since the proposal was received by the board, the board wanted to run it by its membership before proceeding with the next steps. The Board wants to understand which way the homeowners in our association are leaning knowing very well that there are privacy issues. The board will also seek legal opinion from our counsel.
At this stage, we are just conducting a survey!

Fire Season Brush Management
Posted on Oct 8th, 2020
Santa Fe Promontory
 
September 2, 2020
 
 
Dear Residents:
 
As the fire season is here the Board would like to remind all homeowners of their responsibility for removing dead plants or other materials on their own property that could pose a fire hazard to the neighborhood. Although brush management will be conducted in the common areas, each homeowner must be responsible for their own property.
 
Please be mindful of the fire season by removing dead plants or other materials which in turn will play a part in maintaining the community’s standards in safety and appearance.
 
If you notice any areas within our association that may be deemed out of compliance with the City of San Diego Brush Management guidelines, please bring it to our attention by clicking on the Issue/Complaint/Feedback link.
 
If you have any questions, please contact Jeff Smith at (858) 270-7870 x47 or via email at jsmith@menas.com.

Announcement
Water Line from City of San Diego Meter to your home
By The Webmaster on October 1, 2020
The water line from the City of San Diego meter to your home is your responsibility. In some of the houses in our association, that line is made of polybutylene. Some homeowners have had leaks in the segment of the line. Other homeowners have a metal line installed.

A homeowner can tell by looking in their garage where the street pipe comes up to join the inside copper pipe. If their pipe from the street is blue they have a failure-prone pipe. If the pipe from the street is copper they do not have a concern.

Please check what kind of line you have on your property. If it is a polybutylene line, please contact a plumbing company to see what your options are.
Water Pressure Regulator
By The Webmaster on October 1, 2020
Every home has a water pressure regulator. It ensures the pressure inside the house is at the right PSI. If the water pressure is too high, it may create leaks in your laundry washer, dishwasher, and at the refrigerators.

Please measure the pressure inside your house using a pressure gauge that you can buy from a home center.

The recommended water pressure is between 60 to 70 PSI. If it is higher than the recommended range, please get a plumber to check and repair or replace the pressure regulator. This will avoid a lot of pain later on.

Always turn off the main water supply to the house if you are going on long vacations.
Wear a Face Mask!
By The Webmaster on October 1, 2020
Several homeowners are feeling uncomfortable that many people going for a walk in our neighborhood do not wear a face mask. We recommend that you keep a face mask handly and wear it when somebody approaches you. The other option is to cross the street and walk on the other side of the street.

Social distancing and wearing a mask is a good public health policy while we are in the COVID 19 pandemic situation.
Pickup behind your dog!
By The Webmaster on October 1, 2020
Many homeowners have brought to the Board's notice that some pet owners are not picking up behind their dogs. We have installed many dog-stations in our neighborhood which have plastic bags and trash cans.

Kindly be a good pet owner and pick up behind your pet.
Additional Concrete Trash Can Installed
By The Webmaster on October 1, 2020
A large, concrete trash can was installed today near the dog-station in the mini-park at Winstanley Way & Lansdale Way. Over long weekends the smaller dog-station trash can was filling up to capacity.
