Below are some brief highlights from the October board meeting:

  • Some homeowners have expressed concern about the roughness of the surface of the north spa. The spa was resurfaced last year with pebbletec. This is a rougher surface and was selected because it helps minimize slipping. It does have a rougher feel than the prior surface.
  • Treasurer Tammy Eversole reported budget is currently under running by about 8%. This under-run is expected to lessen as we approach year end and seasonal expenses are incurred.
  • Teresa Scharf is stepping down as Hospitality Committee Chair and Jane Spalding will be assuming that position. Thanks Teresa for all the work you did and thanks Jane for stepping in!
  • The new cleaning company is in place and seems to be doing a good job. If you see a problem, please let Phil Mowbray know.
  • Road paving and seal coating have been completed except for a few punch list items.
  • Nominating committee of Kathy Mitton and Larry Spenser will be seeking candidates for board positions for 2018. If you have any interest, please contact Kathy or Larry.

All Residents Welcome (Homeowners & Tenants)

With the coming of fall and homeowners returning, it’s time for our popular “Bring Your Own Beverage and Appetizer” events to resume.  Please join us on Friday, October 20, 2017, at the Clubhouse.

You are welcome to bring your own drinks. SMVE policy allows alcohol in the clubhouse and under the ramada, but not in the pool areas (per insurance and liability requirements). Thank you for not bringing glass as it is not allowed in the pool area.

You bring: your beverage of choice and an appetizer to share
We provide: paper cups, napkins, etc.

Everyone is welcome–all SMVE residents, both homeowners and tenants.

Come and meet your neighbors for a celebration of community in a casual setting; a drop-in opportunity to mingle and meet up with neighbors old and new.  We look forward to seeing you.

Architecture Page Updated

September 22, 2017  News

As most homeowners know, architectural changes to their home and lot require approval by the SMVE Architecture Committee (AC). But what is an “architectural change” and what standards does the AC apply when considering a request? Over the summer, the Architecture Committee and the SMVE Board have been working to make the answers to those questions clearer. We have rewritten the Architecture page on the website to help answer your questions.  A new Architectural Design Notes document provides details on the standards for frequently requested changes.  Please read these notes when thinking about a project so that you know what criteria the AC applies when evaluating a change request.

Below are some brief highlights from the September board meeting:

  • Treasurer Tammy Eversole reported budget is currently under running by about $6,500 and we have slightly higher revenues than budgeted for an $8,600 total improvement on plan. A 6 month CD was opened at a 1.37% interest rate. All but one homeowner has paid second half dues. Tammy also noted that accounting costs are increasing significantly for 2018.
  • A new cleaning service for bathrooms, deck, and clubhouse has started (Rincon Janitorial). The contract specifies not only wiping down tables regularly but also hosing the deck twice a month.
  • The North tennis court was resurfaced.
  • Roads project is nearly complete. Our president, Guy Scharf, spent an enormous amount of time shepherding us through this project and checking on results and is owed a huge thank you from all of us for that work. Next up for roads will be a portion of Velazquez though this isn’t expected until first half 2018.
  • Courtesy notes to homeowners with weedy yards went out. Violation notices will go out September 22 to any who have not resolved the problem by then.
  • Nominating committee of Kathy Mitton and Larry Spenser will be seeking candidates for board positions for 2018. If you have any interest, please contact Kathy or Larry.

We have asked Sunland to create some temporary pedestrian crossings so that you can cross a street that is being coated.  On the map below, the blue bars show approximately where the crossings will be.  The intent is to provide access to mailbox clusters when the opposite side of the street is being coated, to connect sidewalks on opposite sides of the street, and generally to offer some way to cross the street without without having to walk to the end of the road.  For example, when Via Frassino and Via Cedri are being coated, a temporary crosswalk will connect the sidewalk on Via Frassino with the one on Via Cedri.

If you have any questions, please email or call me.

Typos in Seal Coat Calendar

September 11, 2017  News

You would think, wouldn’t you, that I could get North and South right in the calendar? So instead of fixing the one error, I “corrected” the one-way entries so the Via Velazquez entries were wrong too! Here’s another try! The map is correct and always has been. Sunland will also post directional signs. The one-way directions should be apparent–if a street is one way, you should be driving in the right-hand lane. If you are in the left lane, you are going the wrong way!

We found some typos in the seal coat calendar: the description of one-way traffic on Via Velazquez and Via Sempreverde had the directions reversed. The post below has been updated to fix this error.
