Dear Cantebria at the Corona Ranch Homeowner:
Normally, homeowners associations only have one (1) meeting of the membership each year. This meeting is not the recurring business meeting of the Board of Directors, which homeowners have limited participation in, but rather the Annual Meeting of the Membership in which homeowner participation is required for business to be conducted. The minimum quorum requirement for the Cantebria at the Corona Ranch community is 50% of your 104 homeowners.
California Corporations Code mandates that this meeting be held. If a quorum is not reached, your Board of Directors must continue to attempt to hold Adjourned Sessions of the meeting until the proper quorum is met and business can be conducted. To reach quorum for an Adjourned Meeting of the Cantebria at the Corona Ranch membership, the requirement drops to only 25% of your 104 homeowners.
Each of these additional meetings also costs the Association money not previously budgeted for. These charges cover any additional mailings, notices, and the fee for holding a special meeting. Because Corporations Code requires that Adjourned Meetings must be attempted a maximum of every 30-days following the initial meeting, these costs can quickly add up.
For this reason, your current Board of Directors would like to offer you an option that would cover a longer period of time than the normal proxy. Under California Law, members of corporations can give their consent for membership meetings to be held for a term of up to three (3) years unless prohibited by the corporation’s By Laws. Yours do not prohibit the use of such a proxy. Signing the 3-Year Proxy would be giving your consent to allow any meetings of the membership to be held through the proxy’s expiration date. Please consider this option to help save your Association money and keep assessments down. You can find this document on the resident portal or can email your manager for the document.
Thank you for taking an active, positive interest in your community!
Please be reminded that commercial vehicles are not permitted in the community per the CC&R’s, Article III Section 5, “No Owner shall park, store or keep on any property or street (public or private) within the Properties any large commercial-type vehicle (including, but not limited to, any dump truck, cement mixer truck, oil or gas truck or delivery truck), any recreational vehicle (including, but not limited to, any camper unit, motor home), any bus, trailer, trailer coach, camp trailer, boat, aircraft, mobile home, inoperable vehicle or any other similar vehicle or any vehicular equipment, mobile or otherwise, deemed to be a nuisance by the Board, upon any unenclosed parking space, so as to be visible from anywhere in the Properties.”
Please remember that if you plan on making changes to the exterior of your home, an Architectural Application must be submitted for review, and you must receive written approval before making the changes. You can find the Architectural Application and Design Guidelines on the Resident Portal.
At the February 3rd Board Meeting, the Board of Directors voted to no longer continue with the Association’s patrol company, Supreme Force Services. If the Board feels as though the service is warranted in the future, they will re-consider hiring Supreme Force Services as a permanent patrol service for the Community.
