Election/ Annual Meeting of the Membership
As most of you are likely aware, the Annual Meeting of the Membership -otherwise known as the annual election – is currently scheduled for May 12th at 5:30 pm. In order to move forward with the election, we need a quorum of 25% of the Membership represented in person or by ballot. Failure to reach quorum could result in an additional expense for the Association, and without quorum, the election cannot take place. At this time, we have less than half the ballots needed to obtain quorum.
To keep election costs down and ensure the success of the election, we are asking that members complete and return their ballots prior to the May 12th election. If you did not receive your ballot or have discarded it, a unit owner may request a replacement ballot by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
. If you’d like to save postage, signed and sealed ballots may be dropped off with Management at the Columbus Grove office at 16601 Sonora on Monday through Friday 8am-5pm or Saturday & Sunday 10am –5pm.

Peter's Canyon Trail Gates
The Board of Directors has been in the process of bidding out the replacement of the fences/gates at the two Tustin paseos, on Orchid and Camilia Avenues. The purpose of the replacement is to erect taller, sturdier wrought iron fencing to discourage people from jumping over the fence and to extend its useful life. In addition, the community will be installing access control keypads to match what is currently present on the Irvine side.
Until the contract is finalized and the work can commence, the two gates on Orchid and Camilia Avenues will be opened daily between 6:30am and 10pm by Patrol Masters, so residents may enjoy the trail. Should you find the gate locked during these hours for any reason, please contact email@example.com or 949-726-0720.
Once the community is ready to commence with the construction to replace the gates, we will post signage in the paseos and notify the Membership.
APRIL YARD OF THE MONTH WINNER!
Each month, the Landscape Committee selects one home for the prestigious Yard of the Month award. The homes that are selected showcase curated plant palettes and beautifully-maintained landscaping that not only meet, but exceed, the community's standards.
The Landscape Committee would like to formally recognize Shehzad Khan of 43 Desert Willow as the winner for April's Yard of the Month Contest. Shehzad's home was selected as our April winner due to the overall balance of the landscaping design coupled with the well-curated variety of plants and lush greenery. Some of our favorite features were the lush trailing vine around the front-entry area, the beautiful succulent planters at the entry and garage areas, the skillfully trimmed twin Italian cypress trees, and the pops of color created by the flowering plants that line the turf. The tree varieties add elevation to the overall design, making this yard dynamic and engaging.
Stay tuned for our May winner, which will be announced the first week of the month!
EXTENDED POOL USE HOURS
The Board of Directors continues to monitor the latest COVID-19 developments, its impact on the association, and the precautions being taken to mitigate potential spread of the virus within the community. With special consideration given to Orange County's improving health statistics, the Board of Directors voted to resume the normal pool schedule by expanding the hours back to 6 AM to 10 PM, effective immediately.
Both the Sweet Shade and Grove Pools are currently open and heated with the following schedule:
6 a.m. – 9:30 a.m. Lap Swimming and Seniors Only
9:30 a.m. – 10:30 a.m. Senior Use Only (60+) - Must provide ID to Management to have your fob activated for this time slot
10:30 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. General Session
1:00 p.m. – 2:00 p.m. Closed for Cleaning
2:00 p.m. – 10 p.m. General Session
To ensure continued compliance with the guidelines established by the California Department of Public Health, we still cannot allow the use of the pool furniture or showers; however, we encourage residents to bring their own folding chairs or packable furniture as needed. Please note, the pool areas are still limited to residents, and we ask that you not bring guests at this time.
The spas will still be limited to one household at a time; as such, please be courteous and allow others to use the spa after a reasonable time. Please do not enter the spa if it is occupied by someone outside of your household; instead, kindly let the individual(s) know that you'd like to use the spa next, and wait until they have vacated the spa prior to entering it.
The Board continues to monitor the guidelines published by regulatory bodies and evaluate the safety precautions being taken within the community; updates and further developments will continue to be published on this webpage.
