  • President Report
    Overall the community has operated smoothly.  Weeds in the front yards, and parking issues continue to be occasional problems within the community. These issues are usually resolved quickly, without further enforcement action.

    Issues with inconsistent response and support from Cadden personnel was discussed. According to Cadden, they have experienced recent growth and employee turnover. Our issues have been noted and will be addressed by Cadden management.

  • Treasurer Report
    Financial Report for the period endinbg September 30, 2022
    – Operating Account is healthy
    – Reserve Account is behind schedule, with unexpected espenses for drought and monsoon damage to common area trees and vegitation.
    – Homeowner Dues are up to date.
    – There are no unpaid invoices.

    Operating Expenses
    Operating expenses ending on September 30, 2022, have generally been within budget with the exception of Landscaping.  The loss of three common area trees, two to monsoon storms, and one that was causing root damage to a homeowner’s property, have exceeded our landscaping budget by $1,346. Additional common area landscaping work behind Lot 28, to remove drought-killed vegetation, was approved by the Board, and was scheduled for late October. These expenditures will exceed the year end landscaping budget by approximately $3,300.

    The Board decided to consider these extra-ordinary landscaping expenses to the common areas to be capital rather than operating expenses, since these were one-time expenses (i.e. tree removals and drought-caused damage to vegetation), rather than normal maintenance work.

MOTION: To approve the financial report for September 30, 2022 as submitted.
– Approved

    An Ad has been posted on Craig’s List and ‘A-Frame’ signs will be placed along Naranja Drive for this Garage Sale.

  • Draft Budget for 2023
    Addressing extra-ordinary landscaping expenses as capital expenses will reduce the cash balance of the capital reserve account. It is recommended that the 2023 proposed assessment should be increased to provide sufficient funds for capital funding, as well as inflationary impacts to operating expenses.  The recommendation is for an 8.3% increase, this amount equal to the Estimated CPI for 2022; and the maximum allowed by Section 6.03c of our CC&Rs, without a vote of the Association membership. If approved by the Board, this will increase the 2022 assessment by $2 Dollars per month, per Lot.
