To the community of Chemeketa Park,
Over the next few days we will be facing extreme temperatures in the Santa Cruz Mountains. In addition to all of the current extreme heat safety advisories. We must not forget the increase in FIRE DANGER. Currently: EXTREME. The news has been reporting on the many fires in the western United States. Additionally, “The National Weather Service” has issued Red Flag Warnings and Fire Weather Watches for many parts of the Bay Area including the Santa Cruz Mountains.
While you are there. Check out CAL FIRE’s website. There is tons of great information on Fire Safety, Defensible Space, Preparation and Fire Evacuation!
The Santa Cruz Mountains has had several fires of note over the last few years. Now is the time for added vigilance by continued and diligent fire safety practices and reporting.
Be Prepared, Be Aware and Be Fire Safe over this Holiday weekend.
(UPDATE: Road work has been moved back one week to being on May 15th)
Road repairs are scheduled to begin on May 15th in the Park.
Repairs will begin on Comanche Trail at Nez Perce (the north end). The
road will most likely be closed between 7:30 am - 5:00 pm each day. It is not
clear yet if the road will be accessible after the work each day. We will
keep residents updated and informed via the website, so please check back.
Estimated time for repair is five days.
Road repairs on Comanche at Delaware are scheduled to begin on May 22nd. Estimated time for this repair is at least a week. The two other road projects are scheduled sometime after these first two repairs are completed (grate at Asininiboine, and Walla Walla).
Please drive slowly and be aware of the workers helping to rebuild our roads. Thank you for your patience.
NOTICE OF THE ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING with proposed bylaw changes to be held on June 4, 2017
Notice is hereby given that the Annual General Meeting of the Chemeketa Park Mutual Water Company will be held on Sunday, June 4, 2017 at 1:00 pm at the Clubhouse. Members must be in good standing either to vote or to assign a proxy. Signed proxies may be presented to the Board Secretary at the meeting or beforehand.
Bylaws may be repealed or amended only by the Membership at a General Meeting. This year, the Board of Directors has two changes to consider at the annual meeting.
A community member proposed changing to the bylaws to remove Section 2.6.3. The Board does not recommend making this change, but agreed to present the request to the membership for consideration.
Section 2.6.3 Any Member who has reached the age of 62 years and who resides in his or her qualifying dwelling shall be entitled to a 10% reduction on all regular monthly assessments levied by the Corporation.
The financial impact of this change would be additional revenue of $5,342 for the 2017-18 fiscal year. This is a revenue increase of 1.8%.
The Board recommends changing Section 5.1.5, which describes road projects that require prior approval by the Board of Directors. It was pointed out that this section requires approval only for the specific activities listed, which are installing a pipe, drain or conduit. The Board recommends adding sub-section 22.214.171.124, such that approval shall be required for all maintenance and improvement projects.
Section 5.1.5 Approval
Starting sometime after October 23, 2016 and ending before November 9, 2016, there will be tree and brush clearing along Ogallala Warpath, Comanche Trail, and potentially other streets in Chemeketa Park.
Chemeketa Park has been awarded a grant from PG&E for defensible space and evacuation route clearing of brush and trees that will assist emergency crews to enter the park and for us to exit the park in the case of a fire emergency. The goal is a minimum 12. roadway width and 14. overhead clearance for all streets.
All residents are asked to help in these fire safety efforts by trimming shrub areas along your roadsides and throughout the community. An area for excess shrub material will be provided at the Clubhouse during this time. Please haul debris safely to the Clubhouse area for chipping.
Please be advised that during this time, your normal routes of travel in and out of the park may be blocked and your travels delayed. Please be patient and plan ahead.
Let.s pull together and make our community safer!
