Pet of the Month
MEET RASCALS
What can be said, his name Rascals fits his personality? Born a feral kitten on St Patrick’s Day 2020 from a litter of five kittens, Rascals was one of three black kittens. As Rascals grew, he was always the frisky one of the litter. Playing with his other brother and sister and getting into all kinds of mischief.
Could Not Find a Home
Rascals was one of the last two kittens that his potential owner could not find a home. Rascals followed his mom Kit Cat, and brother, Whiskers, around his local neighborhood at the owner’s previous home in Garden Grove, as a feral for a year and two months. The family of three cats kept coming around mornings and evenings to be fed.
Adopting an Owner
The soon-to-be owner kepts playing with Rascals along with his brother and mom during these feeding times. One day Rascals, after a playtime, came and laid down on his potential owner’s lap. The owner finally knew it was time, and brought Rascals in, bathed him, and from then on, Rascals became a domesticated cat. Rascals and the owner’s other cat, Dazzle, moved to Harbour Vista in March this year alog with big sister cat Dazzle.
Inquisitive
Rascals is very inquisitive and wants to be in everything. He is very playful and loves his toys. The owner recently had a group of friends over for some square dancing, and Rascals was under foot at the beginning of each time they got up to dance; he even laid down and dared the guests to dance around him. All of the guests could not believe that Rascals was once feral because he was too friendly for a cat.
Dog and Cats Mixed Family
Rascals’ lives with his adopted big sister cat Dazzle and they have become incredibly good friends. To the owner, the cats are his family and Rascals has become his best friend. ■

HOA Special Meeting Summary
SECURITY CAMERA SYSTEM
A special HOA meeting was held on Wednesday, July 20 to discuss the procurement of a wireless Security Camera system for Harbour Vista. Six members attended along with three HOA Directors: President Michael Barto, Treasurer Yolanda Rangle and Member at Large Jill Perez. A presentation was given by Golden Eye Surveillance System (GESS) — one of the two vendors that provided quotes for this project. Safety Committee Member Rick Manning, who had researched this project, lead the meeting.
Presentations
Cory Safford from Golden Eye Surveillance System (GESS) gave a presentation with slides and a live demonstration from another HOA. A Harbour Vista map was displayed showing where the cameras would be placed. GESS proposals consist of forty-six wireless 4K cameras with four video recorders. This include surveillance of all pools, mailboxes, roadways and both the vehicle and pedestrian gates. Each video recorders will utilize 8TB of storage and will retain the recordings for approximately 30 days before being overwritten. All wifi setup and network repeaters are included in the installation. Most of the cameras will be attached to buildings. One pole camera system will also be required. Monitoring of the camera system will be responsibility of the HOA.
Safety Committee Update
The Safety Committee Chairman Robin Smith requested that two more camera system be added. One covering the Grunion fire gate and the other to cover the pedestrian gate near the corner of Heil and Green. Cory said that these additions would require another camera pole light system. An updated quote was requested.
Financial Impact
This proposed system was not part of the budget for this year. President Michael Barto suggested that to support the Harbour Vista’s cash flow, the HOA might consider installing this system in stages. One member of the audience expressed concern that all of it should be done at one time. The vendor mentioned that all of the cameras could run off the current lighting system as the Harbour Vista lighting system has surplus power because they were converted from incandescent to LED lights. President Michael Barto suggested that funding of approximately $10,000 for any additional electrical work, also be approved.
Conclusion
The three Board members at the meeting said they would support installing such a system. The Finances Committee was tasks to evaluate the cash flow and funding issues. This will be on the agenda for voting for this Thursday, July 28th HOA Meeting. ■

EV Charging
Changes for EV Charging
At the Board Meeting on April 7, the Board adopted new Rules and Regulation and new Architectural Guidelines for 2022 that now allow members to charge their vehicles in their garage. These documents are being mailed out for comment and should be ratified at the May 26th HOA meeting.
EV Charging Now Allowed
Both the Rules and Regulations and Architectural Guidelines now state that electrical vehicles can be allowed to charge in the owner's garage, providing they have obtained permission from the HOA. That last part is important as there is discussion that members may be allowed to use the common area electricity, but must reimburse the HOA for its use. None of that has yet been defined as the Board is waiting for such a request from the membership to implement a policy (e.g., pilot).
Installing Garage Charging System (level2)
Members are allowed to install their own level 2 charging system with the HOA permission. The charging system must be independent of HOA-provided electricity. Power is run from the member's power panel where the electric meters are installed. Quotes from qualified electricians have been in the $3000 range including running the cabling inside the property. For garages on the outside perimeter, required boring under the roadways will increase the expense.
Using Level 1 (Trickle Charging)
Plugging a portable charging adapter into the 120 outlet can be allowed under the new changes and will also require permission from the HOA. This permission will probably come with an assessment for using the HOA electricity used. The monthly amount has yet to be determined. The 120 volt outlet in the garage is limited to use 15A with a charging adapter. This will provide level 1 charging which is 4 miles/hour. ■

NOTICE
CROSS OVER ISSUE
The CC&R’s Section 2.08 Repair and Maintenance by Unit Owner state that:

“Each Unit Owner shall maintain, repair, replace, paint, paper, plaster, tile, finish and restore or cause to be so maintained, repaired, replaced and restored, at his sole cost and expense, all portions of his Unit, including the interior surfaces of the walls, ceilings, windows, floors, doors and permanent fixtures, in a clean, sanitary and attractive condition, in accordance with the Condominium Plan and the original construction design of the Improvements in the Project. “

Early last year there were lukewarm water problems with the 16521 Grunion Building and the north half of the 16551 Grunion Building. The Board was told that crossover was contributing to this problem, caused by the old Mixet valves that were installed when the property was built in 1980. A survey was taken by the HOA and units were identified.
Root Cause
The Board continued to investigate root cause of the problem, and as part of the investigation, they set a period where the HOA would pay for the labor to replace the old valves, and charge cost of the pressure balance valves that replaced them to the homeowner. This was during the boiler problem discovery period, starting in June and ending in August 2021.
Discovery
About 20 units had their valves replaced under this program at an average labor cost of $600 per unit. The cost of the material varied based on what hardware was chosen, and was charged back or will be charged back to the home owner. The Board is continuing to research the boiler water delivery problem and will continue to do so until the problem is solved, but is no longer paying for swapping out Mixet valves.
Recently
Recently some Mixet valves have been indentified in the 4831 Lago Building and the 16551 and 16581 Grunion building. The owners asked if the HOA will pay for the labor again. Currently the answer is NO. The Board is in a different phase of solving the boiler problem and continuing such a program would require increasing the assessment for all members. Also, many residents over many years have replaced their 40 year old Mixet valves at their expense. Should they be reimbursed?
Accept Responsibility
As a member of the association, property owners accept this responsibility to maintain the plumbing fixtures in proper order. By maintaining the old valves, owners impose lukewarm water issues on their neightbors. At this point, if they are not replaced (which is different from being repaired), the HOA can fine the member for not maintaining their property. This can lead to legal costs and assessments if the member does not comply. ■

Security
Mail Box Security
The Cabana Mailboxes over the last couple of months were twice vandalized. This prompted the HOA to installed a security camera in the mail kiosk. Several members have volunteered tom monitor the camera. Our postal working has noted that several of the resident's boxes have loose latches which is the homeowner's responsibility to repair. This is true for mailboxes that are not broken.
Repairing Mail Box
The perpetrator basically open the mailbox by breaking or bending the latch with a shim. Since only the latch and possibly the lock are broken, members are responsible for replacing their own mailbox latch or lock. Parts may be purchased at Home Depot. The latch is easily screwed on and there is a shim to secure the lock.
Preventing Vandalism
The latch of the box must close tight when the mailbox is locked, or a vandal can easily push a shim in to pop the box. A correctly maintained box must close tightly.■

June 2022 Maintenance Happenings
Water Main Replaced
A new water main meter and valve near the 4831 Lago building was replaced by The City Water Company on June 8, due to a leak. This entailed dig into the Lago Roadway. At the same time, it was discovered that the
line to Harbour Vista to 4831 and 4791 Lago was defective, the wrong kind and improperly installed. The HOA was able to have DryMaster who as on the
property at the time replace this piping. The City Water Company was nice enough to excavate the the area and wait around till our repairs were completed.
Tree Removal
On June 16th six trees at Harbour Vista (Blackbeard, Cabana and Lago) were removed. Trees were not touched at the Grunion setting. The majority of trees were removed for safety reasons. This particular group produces a hard-spiny ball that falls on our walkways potentially causing serious tripping hazards. In addition, they have strong, aggressive root systems that have been responsible for leaks in our irrigation structures as well as uprooting many grass areas. One tree was removed because it was a nuisance, growing into the buildings and blocking patios. One was removed near the car wash space because it was rotting away from the inside. The Landscaping Committee will replant new trees once they decide what trees respond the best to each vacant area. ■

Land Lease Committee March Status
Land Lease Will Run Into Issues
by Eric Bonholtzer
This is a summary of a report provided to the Board at the March 28, 2022 General Session HOA Meeting from the Land Lease Committee spokesperson Eric Bonholtzer.

The appraiser has been diligently researching the value of the land lease held by Mr. Dickey and Harbour Vista including the 15-year extension between 2041 and 2056 to create a valuation which Harbour Vista can use as a basis for a loan and potential purchase negotiations.  In particular, the well-regarded appraiser has indicated that Mr. Dickey will run into several substantial issues if he wishes to convert the properties into rentals for the term between 2041 and 2056.  
The Issues
These issues include, but are not limited to, Huntington Beach’s strict rules and regulations regarding requirements for low-income housing, change in use fees and rehabilitation costs, as well as language included in the original lease agreements.  While the appraiser’s valuation is not complete, he has plans to meet with Huntington Beach city officials in the upcoming week or so to discuss specific restrictions regarding the Harbour Vista property.  The end goal is to create a fair valuation which can be used in negotiations.   
Funding
Once a valuation has been obtained, the HOA will approach lending institutions to see the cost of funding such a loan and what the financial implications would be, if any, to the residents of Harbour Vista.  
Markup
Currently, Mr. Dickey has a substantial markup over his lease agreement with the Duc Family who owns the title to the land.  If the loan purchase is successful, instead of paying a monthly land lease payment to Mr. Dickey, the money would instead go towards paying the loan and paying the Duc Family directly.  The full financial implications will be divulged to HOA members in advance of any final negotiation as member approval is necessary.  
Buyout
Buyout of the lease is necessary to prevent the Harbour Vista property from reverting to Mr. Dickey in 2041.  If successful, negotiations for purchase of the land from the Duc family can be explored. ■

September 2022 Architectural Committee Meeting
Architectural Committee Meeting
White Door 
Pulldown Ladder
The Architectural Committee met on September 16, 2022, at the Cabana Clubhouse.Those attending were Michael Barto (Chair), Robert Sullivan and Yolanda Rangel (via Zoom). It was announce the Chat Tran has joined the Committee which will be certified at the next HOA Meeting. He could not make this meeting due to a previous commitment. But he has taken on the assignment to develop a scope of work for several project for the HOA.
Pulldown Ladder
A member appeared in person to answer questions for his Architectural request to install a pulldown ladder in his top floor three bedroom unit. This ladder is intended to be used for maintenance purposes and will be installed in his walk-in closet. This installation will expand the existing crawl space entrance.The access is limited for utility purposes. The Committee approved the request. There was some discussion that approval for pulldown ladders installed using the existing crawl space entrance for top floor three bedroom units should be included in the update to the Architectural Guidelines for 2023. Once adopted for the new Guidelines, Architectural Committee approval will not be required.
Electric Vehicle Charging
It was brought to the attention of the Architectural Committee, that a member has installed an unapproved EV charging cabling system from his downstairs unit to an unassigned parking space. The HOA has issued a violation notice to this member and is requesting that he remove this system. The member will be directed to submit an Architectural request for a replacement and properly engineered system. The Committee decided to request that such systems be installed by a qualified electrician and that City permits and inspection be required. Furthermore, if the member wishes to install such a system to serve an unassigned space, the HOA will not enforce any parking restriction for this space whether used personally by the member for EV charging or used as an unassigned space. The 72 hour limit for parking in this space will still apply. 
White Door
It was brought to the attention of the Architectural Committee, that a member has installed a white front door without Architecture Committee approval. The Architectural Guidelines states that a front door must be walnut in color with molding. But many members really like this white door and if it was allowed, they would want one themselves.The Committee is considering updating the Architectural Guidelines to allow different type doors. The reason is that the original doors installed at Harbour Vista are no longer made. This has lead to many variations even in the color of the door and molding. But, such variations are not obvious with the building as they are partially covered by the elevator, stairwell shaft, a hallway or a screen. The Committee has requested a letter be submitted to this person and request that she submit an Architectural request for review and approval by the Committee. ■

HOA Special Meeting Summary
FUTURE OF EV CHARGING
Edison Pilot Proposal
A special HOA meeting was held on Wednesday, July 13. Five members attended along with three HOA Directors: President Michael Barto, Treasurer Yolanda Rangel and Member at Large Jill Perez. This meeting was to discuss the Edison “zero cost” pilot program where they would install the EV charging infrastructure and provide rebates for charging stations installed by the HOA. Edison representative Jonathan Van attended the meeting and lead a discussion about Edison’s EV charging pilot.
Edison Proposal
The Edison proposal installs at each HOA address a “zero cost” a level 2 EV charging infrastructure. The HOA has 10 addresses for this purpose. The HOA will be responsible for purchasing, installing and maintaining EV charging stations attached to this infrastructure. But the pilot also includes a one-time cash rebate for each station. With quantity discounts for charging stations, the Edison rebates in most cases will cover the station costs and installation of the new charging stations.
HOA Set Fees
The HOA will collects the charging fees via a credit card system at each charger and will pay Edison directly for all power used. The HOA will set the rates to the user to cover the energy, maintenance and so forth. The charging stations cannot be converted to solar or removed from the system for 10 years. There is no minimum usage requirements.
Zero Cost
President Michael Barto stated that any plans to install charging stations at Habour Vista should not cost the HOA any money. There are not enough EV’s at Harbour Vista (approximately 11) to justify any funding at this time. But the number of EV’s is growing by one a month. Edison’s “zero cost” proposal seems to meet this these criteria.
No Discrimination
The President also stated that he would not support any plan that would take parking spaces away from homeowners or resident, or limit them for special purposes. The only fair way to do this would be to install charging stations at the majority of parking spaces-both assigned and unassigned with no changes to the parking regulations.
First Step
To become eligible to participate in this pilot, Edison requires that the HOA submit a signed request. This will initiate a “no cost” engineering feasibility study. If everything is acceptable, the HOA will then be asked to sign a contract to begin the installation. Prior to this second signing, there is no financial obligation to the HOA. The three Board members all agreed that they would vote in favor of the Engineering Study at the next General HOA meeting on July 28.
Further Discussion
The meeting was then opened to a general discussion. Those attending felt that the HOA will have to implement some type of modernization for the community for EV Charging. ■



Editor Notes:
  1. Those attending this meeting were surprised to see none of the people who expressed concerns about this proposal in the HOA_Discussion Mailing List, attended this meeting.
  2. There is a misconception, that EV Charging Stations will take away parking spaces. This may be a misconception created by public parking lots that do assign parking spaces for special use. The HOA has never suggested that they would do this.

Candidate Statement
Rick Manning
I am new here and moved in last February. I attended my first HOA meeting in April. I made a couple
of suggestions about walkway and curb safety. The board asked me to join the Safety committee.
Since joining I headed the Security Camera project for the Board.

My background; I am a Square Dance Caller/Instructor and have been involved in that community
activity since 1973. I served in the Army Reserves for eighteen years rising to the rank of Captain.

My leadership skills along with wanting to see continued improvements to our HOA and community is
my only goal. ■
Candidate Statement
Robin Smith
My name is Robin Smith and I’m eager to announce my candidacy for a position on the HOA Board of
Directors. I’m looking forward to working harmoniously with both board members and volunteers as well as
our management team in an effort to make Harbour Vista a wonderful, safe and friendly place to live.

For those of you who don’t know me, I have lived here for 7 months, although my daughter lives in the area
with her husband so I have spent a lot of time visiting! My son lives in Arizona with his soon to be wife. In my
spare time I’m an avid reader, enjoy traveling, love to walk (just received a badge from Fitbit for walking 8K
miles), work hard at paying it forward to help the less fortunate and to save the Earth for future generations.

Board members need to know how to understand and plan a budget as well as grow our reserves for future
concerns, deal with disputes, discuss and carry out ideas and listen to and take-action on what the
membership suggests.

I believe my MBA in Marketing, 23 years of working in the field as well as managing, make me an excellent
candidate for the position. I am currently serving as the Chairperson of the Safety Committee and have
worked with other Boards in the past. Therefore, I know what this job entails and believe I have the necessary experience to do a worthy job.

These are some of my goals for the community:
  1. To make the community safe by keeping non-residents out, creating a camera system that will record
    trespassers, thieves and destructive vandals. Make sure the physical property has sufficient coverage
    for lighting, landscaping, parking.
  2. Assist residents in maintaining property values in this unpredictable market.
  3. Focus on increasing homeowner participation.
  4. Do a more complete job of communicating the rules and regulations to all residents.
If you feel that I am qualified, please vote for Robin Smith in the coming election!!!  ■

My work experience is from the corporate world, where I worked as IS Director for a Fortune 500 company. I hold a BS in Information Systems and an MBA from the University of Redlands.

I have been an off-site homeowner in the Harbour Vista community for over 25 years. I am married to a wonderful husband, have two terrific daughters (one who lives at Harbour Vista), two grandchildren and one great-granddaughter.

I am looking forward to continue to work harmoniously with other board members and volunteers. As well as with the, management team in an effort to continuously, make Harbour Vista a great place to live in.

For those of you who don’t know me. I currently sit on the HOA Board of Directors as Treasurer. I moved into our community a year and a half ago and have learned so much from the other board members as well as the residents. I have thoroughly loved my time here! I love the area, the people and the beauty around us.
I understand that members must know how to plan and understand the budget, manage the association finance, deal with disputes, discuss and carry out ideas, and listen to our community.

I know what the job entails being on the board now for a year. I believe I have the necessary experience to continue to do well. I am also currently part of the Parking enforcement committee, as well as the architectural committee.

My background is Law Enforcement and currently I am head of security over-seeing eight large properties in El Segundo. I have volunteered in the past taking care of my children’s sports team’s as treasurer for twelve years.

I understand the current issues that Harbour Vista has. I have been part of helping to move things forward, as well as taking action on complaints as they arise and resolving them together. ■
Editor Notes
I talking to some homeowners, they were surprised that I was not running for the next term. I had announced this several months ago at the Board meetings. The reason is the Davis-Stirling Act will allow only one member of a household to hold a position on the Board at the same time. Mariette van den Bersselaar, former HOA Treasurer and my wife, is running this time from our household. I am endorsing her wholeheartedly. ■

Rules and Regulations

Make sure you have the latest copy of the HOA Rules and Regulations. You may obtain them from Association Management. They are also posted at Harbour Vista News at:


Remodeling


The first thing that many new homeowners do is replace appliances, flooring and cabinets and even plumbing. Each Harbour Vista Condo shares common walls, floors and ceilings. Remodeling project may impact your neighbors or the outside of the building (screens, windows, doors) which pierces the firewalls. Simple installing new flooring or recess lights impacts sound proofing and firewall bariers with your neighbors. The inside of your unit’s walls may have plumbing and electrical that service other units. You should contact the property manager to obtain a copy of the latest Architectural Guidelines which is also posted at Harbour Vista News at:


Architectural Request

You may be required to submit an Architectural Request prior to starting a remodeling project. You can also contact the HOA Architectural Committee to simply ask questions. Installing an air conditioning/heating system will require a building permit and approval of an HOA Architecture Request. The large attic space in the three bedroom is not constructed as a living space when the units were build. Only storage of light weight items is permitted.

Construction Noise


Construction noise for remodeling is only allowed between 7am to 5pm on the weekdays. If your remodeling project is going to make excessive noise, it is a good idea to inform your neighbors prior to the start of the work.

Trash Bins

Normal trash bin pickup is scheduled every week for Tuesday and Friday. Do not over stuff the trash bin particularly when moving in. Disposal of large items which including furniture that do not fit in the trash bin is allowed but only the day before the HOA scheduled large item pick up. Large item pick dates are posted at the mail boxes bulletin boards.

Common Water System

Your condo shares a common water supply with all units with both hot and cold water paid for by the your HOA dues. Your condo does not have master water shutoff supply valves. Your sinks do have individual shutoff valves, but the shower/tubs do not unless they have been upgraded (a good suggestion). You should contact Progressive to schedule them to perform any full water turn off to your unit that may affect your neighbors.

Hydronic Heaters

Each condo has a forced air Hydronic hot water coil heater system install in the ceiling the hallway. These system may leak. These heaters have shutoff valves which are located behind the ceiling vent cover. Two ball valves (intake and outage) are behind a pulldown metal plate on the opposite side of the coil when the vent cover is removed (4 screws). Maintaining and repair of the hydronic heater is the homeowner’s responsibility.

Electrical/Cable TV Lines

Each unit when built has an inside 70 amp circuit panel. But sometimes the master breaker for a unit can be tripped. You cannot turn the power back on from your inside breakers. The master breaker is located in a locked cabinet in each building. If you accidentally have this breaker trip, contact the Progressive, a Board member or a building monitor. These cabinets also have the electrical boxes for land line phones, internet and TV. Though each vendor is supposed to have keys to these cabinet, some new vendors may not. Please have then contact Progressive for access.

Electronic Gate System

You can ask the Property Management Company to add your name to the Electronic Gate Kiosk at your assigned entrance gate with you phone number enabled. This phone number can be a cell phone. When a visitor or delivery person comes to the Kiosk, they can press a button by your name to call your number. You can then open the Gate from your phone.

Garage

The one electrical outlet in your garage is temporarily power small device. The power to each garage is on a common circuit and is paid by the HOA. Powering heavy electrical equipment such as refrigerators or charging an electric vehicle is strictly prohibited.

Homeowners' Insurance

A unit owner is required to carry Homeowners' insurance (CC&R's Section 9.03).

The HOA

As new Harbour Vista Condo owner, you are a member of the Harbour Vista Home Owners Association (e.g., HOA). The HOA is the caretaker of the property and consist of elected member just like you. The HOA meetings are open to all members to attend to voice their issues and to observe the proceedings of the representatives. Meeting notices are posted at each Mailbox Bulletin Board. The HOA normally meets on the last Thursday of the Month. You may attend in person or via teleconferencing.
