Stephen Musser announced that he was resigning from the committee effective immediately and would not be able to stay for the entire meeting.† He was thanked for the work he had contributed to the committee.

Rita Lumos that an Ad Hoc committee would be appointed by the Association President to review and possibly revise Architectural Guidelines to conform to CC&Rís and Bylaws.† This work may take several months.†

Rita also informed the committee that the VCHPOA Board of Directors had voted to no longer require property owners to stake property lines and proposed structures for an on-site inspection by Architectural Control Committee members.† It may still be necessary for a committee member to visit the neighborhood if there is a possibility of the same or similar house being built within 2500 feet of an existing house.

Plans for three projects were reviewed and approved:

  1. Jack Goshow presented plans for an addition to the home on Lot 34. Block J, 21480 Delta Drive.† The addition will contain 882 sq. ft. and the colors will match the existing home.† The roof will be black composite shingles.† Fee $75, check no. 1661.
  2. Mark Zulim, representing Janice Eskola, presented plans for a new residence on Lot 28, Block C, 2470 Cartwright Road.† The residence is a two story, mountain style home, including 1796 sq. ft.† It will have T-111 wood siding and the roof will be gray in color. Fee $100, check no. 5556.
  3. Robert Crow presented completed plans for a residence on Lot 290, Block M, 2001 Saddleback Rd.† The plans had previously been reviewed when the grading and footing permits were obtained.† The home will have a stone and stucco exterior and contains 4551 sq. ft. of living space. The fee was paid previously.

Bill Lewis expressed concern that no action would be taken on violations to the CC&Rís in the future.† Rita stated that certified letters were sent to three property owners regarding complaints received and that hearings were scheduled on those violations at the April 11 board meeting.† She stated that the board intended to address any complaints it received in the manner set out in the adopted procedures of the association and in compliance with state law.

There are now two vacancies on the board.† It is anticipated that new members will be appointed prior to the May meeting.† At that time, the committee members and interested board members can meet to discuss the legal procedures for dealing with violations of the provisions of the CC&Rís and the direction and purpose of the Architectural Committee.

Bill Lewis was elected chairman of the committee by those present.† It was agreed that other officers would be elected after the vacancies on the committee are filled.

There being no further business the meeting was adjourned at 9:40 pm.

Respectfully submitted,

Rita Lumos, Member
