June 9, 2009 MEETING MINUTES OF
SAN ANTONIO DEL MAR HOMEOWNERS COMMITTEE
Members Present: Martha Alvarez, Herta Calvo, Javier Gonzales, Al Rosen (Quorum was not present)
· There was a lengthy discussion concerning the preparations and planning for the community celebration of American Independence Day — July 4.
· There was discussion of CESPT and their promises to repair pumping stations. To date, some repairs have been made. Pipe carrying treated water from Hacienda del Mar has been repaired. The flow of water across the beach at 200 Bahia and 800 Roca have stopped. They have made minor repairs to the pump station at 800 Roca. But the pump station at south end remains unrepaired and this is the most serious problem. Martha stated that CESPT has promised to begin repairs next week. This is an issue the Committee needs to monitor closely.
· Income from homeowners remains steady. The balance of funds at the end of the month has remained about $40,000.00, however, the total is beginning to decrease which is normal for this time of the year. Project “Adopt a Pothole” and the work of Committee members Craig Schaefer and Dora Alicia McIntosh are bringing in significant donations for street repairs. The goal to go to every residence in the community is almost completed.
· Repairs to the fence at the 400 block recreation area have been completed. Committee discussed use of the area for dog owners to bring their pets for exercise. Area will be a multi-use area for dogs as well as individuals who want to skate or play basketball. Committee discussed the rules which will apply to use of the area for dogs.
· Discussed the problem at the Urban Training Center house in the 400 block of Isla. Person representing the organization has responded to our letter. He apologized for past behavior and promised that loud activities and disruptive behavior will stop.
· Discussed several emails from residents requesting repairs to street lights, trimming of palms, beach clean-up at north end, and control of squirrel population.
· Committee discussed Security issues. There have been a few break-ins, mostly at unoccupied residences along the beachfront. Objects stolen have been limited to mainly portable electronic items, such as televisions. Al stated that he will email a “Security Bulletin” alerting residences of these occurrences and recommending actions they can take to secure their property better. Our security patrol continues to monitor a group of young males who wander through the community at night.
