Our Rossmoor - A Great Place To Live Since 1957

At A Glance: March 2024 Community & Directors Meeting

The March Rossmoor Homeowners Association Community & Directors Meeting had a lot of “housekeeping” information, which is to be expected –  planning requires coordination and participation of a lot of parts.

Here’s the highlights:

  • Confirmed the nominating committee for facilitating upcoming RHA Board of Directors elections in May for the 2024-2026 Board Terms. Jody Roubanis will chair the committee, with Frank Facey and Marian Last filling in the committee.
  • Rossmoor Graduation Parade logistics, partnerships, and activity reports.
Our Rossmoor - Community &Amp; Director Meeting At A Glance
  • Update on relocation of stored RHA items to new location Bethlehem Lutheran Church storage room – completed, with free-standing storage shed sold and removed from Montecito Center, per RCSD General Manager request in notification to vacate letter last October.
  •  Membership drive update – renewal reminder letters have been sent, and memberships continue to come in.
  • CSD Proposition 68 Grant information update – Public records request of CSD fulfilled by General Manager Mendoza, with additional information procured from the State of California Parks Department.
    • General background on the grant is now posted on the OurRossmoor website, for historical summary.
      • Proposition 68 Grant resulted from legislation created by California Voters in a 2018 bond measure to provide Capital Improvement funding (mostly for economically disadvantaged communities.) The Per Capita non-competitive portion of the grant, allowed otherwise excluded communities to participate in the funding, with a 20% match requirement.
    • Rossmoor’s grant documents and contracts will be posted at OurRossmoor.com/prop68 in the upcoming weeks, filling in status of the grant-related progress, as best can be understood from the public documents. This is an on-going documentation project, as the Capital Improvements in Rossmoor parks are ongoing. 
  • Discussion about next upcoming RHA Quarterly Shredding event.
    • Directors expressed concern that residents be made aware of the location change from Rush Park.
    • The Saturday, April 27th Shredding Event will be held at Richard Henry Lee School Parking lot off of Foster, from 8am until noon (or until truck is filled.)
    • The location change was due to the CSD General Manager not making the Rush Park Parking lot available to us on our scheduled date.
    • It is unknown at this time if the shredding event has a new permanent location – the RHA board will stabilize a new plan, and keep the residents apprised with updates.   
  • RHA Adopt-a-Channel Cleanup event information.
    • Our Encroachment Permits from the County have been renewed, allowing the RHA access to the Rossmoor and Kempton storm channels.
    • An initial small-scale cleanup event is scheduled for Saturday, May 11th, to assess channel conditions “behind the gates.” It is expected that there will be little cleanup required, since the channels are fairly well protected from the usual type of trash usually seen in other county channels (that are visible and accessible from public areas.).
    • Any trash we collect will be placed inside the gates for OCPW pick up at a future date.
    • RHA Directors will be conducting door-to-door campaign to households that back to the channel areas where the cleanup will happen, and to elevate awareness of the RHA’s adopt-a-channel partnership and environmental commitment with the county to this important part of Rossmoor’s stormwater infrastructure.
