Please plan to attend a general meeting of all homeowners
from 7 to 8:30 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 24, in the Library
at the Strawberry School.
All members are invited to hear a report on Association
activities, ask questions and talk about matters of
concern to them.
The meeting will supplement - not replace - the Annual
Meeting to be held in May. Discussion is expected of
proposed revisions of the Bylaws and CC&Rs, a report
on pool repairs and plans to issue pool keys for the
2004 season. No voting is planned.
Ridgeview Gardens Web Site
The Web site for the Ridgeview Gardens Homes Association will be completed shortly. Please send us your suggestions and comments. With your input, we hope to create a virtual community that offers neighborhood, board and pool information, providing a forum for neighbors to stay connected. We anticipate having the web site ready for 'prime time' by the general meeting Feb. 24.

The Board has contracted for essential repairs in the pool area -
- Replacement of solar heating panels and installation of temperature control. There were numerous complaints last year about the water being too cold. The old copper panels are outdated, corroded and leaking. Replacement will be with an array of 10 Heliocol panels, 4 X 12.5 feet and an LX220 Solar Control System, for a total of $4,200. The work will be done by Bob's Pool & Spa, the company that has been handling pool maintenance. Their bid was in the middle of three estimates obtained and provided for a more complete panel array than the lower bid.
- Replacement of pool pump ($805.88) and chlorinator ($554.90). The pump was leaking last year and needs to be replaced before the new pool season. The chlorinator is undersized and caused problems last year when water quality deteriorated. The work will also be carried out by Bob's Pool & Spa.
- Repair of front and back gates by Coggins Fence & Supply for $550.25
These repairs follow replacement of the skimmer the previous year so we are hopeful that the pool will be in good shape for the foreseeable future.
Last call on the laptop computer the Association bought several years ago but is no longer using. It's a Hitachi Visionbook Plus 4000 Series, Model 4140, which we understand has a present market value of $50 to $100.
If you're interested in buying it, please leave a message at 547-9848.
