How much does CHOA pay in Earthquake Insurance?

At the Annual Meeting, the question was asked about how much of our recent premium increase in Insurance was related to Earthquake Coverage.

We heard back from Jay Puppo (our Insurance agent).   He said that 38% of our yearly premium is for earthquake coverage.

Sprinklers will be turned on this weekend

Please note that we will be running the sprinklers on Saturday night (May 12th) and Monday (May 14th) at 50% because of the hot weather which is forecast. This isn’t the start of full-time watering.  That won’t start till the pumps go in the river probably late May or early June.

Per the Golf Course- ” We usually wait until were comfortable that the river levels won’t rise.  We think we can have the river pump operational within the next 1 – 2 weeks.  In the meantime, water as needed to maintain what you have, but encourage your landscapers to be judicious, I don’t think anything in the 10-day forecast will necessitate mid-summer type irrigation.

We’ll let you know when we have the pump in the river, we’re currently working through a couple logistical issues, but should have those resolved shortly”.

Murphy’s Green update

Murphy’s Green
At the February Board meeting, the improvement of the Murphy’s Green area were approved with a chipping and putting green as presented at the January Holiday party.

You may have noticed some preliminary work being done this past week.  While it is too cold to begin seeding the putting surface, Garron will be marking out some proposed planting areas and taking line of sight measurements to be sure the proposed plants don’t obstruct any views. Once that is done, we will prepare a planting plan for each area and hope to be able to review those with the homeowners that have a direct view of the area.

You can direct any questions to Karen Siegel or Steve Chinn.

Stay tuned for further updates.

CHOA Alarm Proposal Fails

As you know, the Board of CHOA conducted a vote of homeowners on whether you wanted to amend our Bylaws to eliminate the requirement that CHOA provide monitoring of alarm service to homeowners.  If passed, this would have resulted in each homeowner being responsible for payment of the monitoring of their own security system and your monthly HOA fees would have been reduced by $13 each month.

We have a total of 228 homesites with each home getting 1 vote.  In order to amend our Bylaws, we needed 75% approval or 171 yes votes.  We received 157 Yes votes and 38 No Votes with 33 homes not voting.  Therefore, we did not get enough votes to pass this measure.

The Board still feels like this is the right approach and may try another vote in the future.

Please let us know if you have any questions and/or need more information

Holiday Party was fun and informative with Murphy’s Green update

As you know, we had the CHOA Holiday Party on January 20th.  Approximately 100 folks attended.  There was great food and conversation.

In addition, Ken from Garron Grounds laid out several options for Murphy’s Green.  The reason the Board wanted to present this information during the Holiday Party was that the timing was good to figure out the Spring planting ideas for the space.

The Board wants to hear from you about what you want done with Murphy’s Green.

We had an informal survey of the folks attending and Option B (chipping and putting) got the most votes with Option A second (putting only).  You can see the options below.
