New Business
  • Mr. Snyder at 4261 Brookshire Circle called in a complaint regarding a large tree in his neighbor's backyard, and believes the bylaws state that the tree should be trimmed. The Board reviewed the bylaws and we believe that Mr. Snyder is misinterpreting what it says. The sections he state are for keeping shrubs or trees at certain heights where it blocks the views of traffic at a turn or intersection. Dave to contact Mr. Snyder and let him know that he should talk to his neighbor about trimming the tree.
  • Chris Petrus brought up an issue in which his neighbor asked him to trim the trees next to his house. These trees are located on what use to be the easement to the pool and are not part of Chris' property. The Board asked if this easement was turned over to Chris' property, but Chris was pretty sure it had not. The Board asked Chris to invite his neighbor to the next Board meeting to see what he would like done with the trees.
  • Marc brought up an incident a few weeks ago that a man was walking his dog across the street from Marc's house and slipped on the balls that were dropping off the trees on the corner lot of Siskiyou and Brookshire. The yard in never kept up at this address, and the house is a rental. Marc is going to put a call into the owner to let her know that the yard in not well kept and ask that she ask the tenants to start cleaning up to keep safer and more slightly to the neighborhood.
  • Evon Martin complained that she had to cut down her trees in order for the solar panels to work at the pool, and complained that the solar panels are gone. The panels are temporarily removed in order to redo the roof of the pool house, and will be reinstalled shortly. Anne will call Evon and let her know.
  • There was complaint on 1919 Calaveras that the occupants are working on their cars. We will look into this and discuss in our next Board meeting.
  • Another RGHA member complained about her neighbor and at 4409 Brookshire. The member is going to file a complaint with the City of Santa Rosa. Rich sent an email to her the night after the meeting stating that we have had several complaints regarding this house, and we contacted the City as well. The City stated that there is not much we can do. The owner is allowed to rent out rooms, and our home owner's bylaws don't say anything either about not being able to. The email explained this and Rich told the member that we will keep an eye out on the property to see if they do break any bylaws. Then we can do something.

The meeting was adjourned at 8:25.

The next meeting will be held on Tuesday, February 10th at 7:00 pm. at Anne's house.

Respectfully submitted
Rich Whitestine
RGHA Secretary
