    Restrictions each lot must have 5 foot offsets. Randy handed out Code
    Enforcement literature advising what requires a permit.  All
    architectural/landscape projects run by architectural committee before
    proceeding.  Once code enforcement involved no longer in the hands of
    our architectural committee. Architectural committee wants to work
    with you to improve your homes.

      2.04 –Alan Klatt- 11 letters of non-compliance sent out in
    February. 6 homes complied, 5 did not.  Second non-compliance letters
    sent out to these 5 homeowners.
    Weeds in lawns popping up everywhere.  We all need to address this
    issue immediately and de-weed.  Dried out weeds and palm fronds pose a
    fire hazard in summer.  If you are leaving for the summer make sure
    someone maintains your yards.
    Next inspection will be next week.

      Emergency Preparedness and Safety: Dave Hemingway-On March 23, 24
    & 25th CERT Training was held at the Clubhouse.  13 people graduated.
    Will continue training classes and future CERT classes so we can have
    more people in case of an emergency.  Looking at generator set-up and
    gas usage.  County will be painting curb on island in front of
    restaurant red to allow room for emergency vehicles to get through.
    Riverside County considering giving us an Emergency Trailer on site
    within 6 to 8 months. Restrooms at Café/Salon now locked due to use by
    the homeless. Keys available at restaurant, salon, real estate office
    and golf.  Getting bids to put up fence and gate at end of library
    over to pool wall to enable us to secure clubhouse after office
    closes.  Only entrance you will be able to use after the office closes
    is by the maintenance room.  We are hoping this will stop the homeless
    from use of our facilities and they will go away.
      
    Interview Committee-Nancy Nunan-14 interviews coming up. Nancy
    Nunan will be holding classes to help with the interviews for the
    Association side. Good way to meet new residents and provide them with

    volunteers to help her out on the Club side.

    room and clubhouse. Jessica trying really hard to be part of our
    community.
          
    Maintenance-Ed Lanning-No report.

    At our workshop meeting, Officer Contreras, Riverside County Sheriff
    Supervisor, came out to discuss the homeless issues surrounding our
    park. He stated: Vigilance—the foundation of community safety.  The #1
    advice:  “If you see something, say something.  Those calls prove we
    have a need of law enforcement support.  Other advice:  keep a
    journal.  Write down any suspicious activity, with date and time.
    Watch for patterns of suspicious behavior. If you call in to sheriff
    or highway patrol and they do not want to come out or take a report
    you tell them you want them to come and make them take a report. That
    is there job.  We have several homeless encampments near our park.
    Two across the street and one between our park and Oasis.  Do not put
    your recycling out to early.  Others are taking them. Code Enforcement
    has Homeless Unit.  Will come out and cite the landowners where the
    encampments are for all clean-up.
