Message from the President

President’s Message (Feb 2016/Mar 2016)

I wish everyone a Happy New Year and hope all had a wonderful Holiday Season.

As we move into the New Year, it appears that the weatherman was correct in that el nino in recent weeks has brought us colder temperatures with increased precipitation. Residents should be alert to lawn sprinklers running early in the morning, leaving frozen sidewalks. Homeowners are responsible for their sidewalks. Should anyone slip the homeowner would be held accountable. Yards should only be watered above 38 degrees and only after 11 a.m. during the winter months.

Our major project last year was the installation of new lighting throughout Tanoan. Under past Board President, Patti Hinds, and with the dedicated coordination of Board Director, Jeff Philbin, and the Select Lighting Committee, new light fixtures with LED lights were installed on time and on budget. The new lights are “nite sky” compliant, and the Board has received numerous compliments since their installation. We are anxiously waiting to see what savings the new lights will have on the Association’s monthly electrical bills. Thanks again to Patti, Jeff, and the Committee.

Just as up-graded lighting was a part of our security concerns, last year the BOD purchased and installed three self-contained, digital cameras. These cameras are motion activated and have infrared technology to take photos during the day and at night. In addition, to further upgrade the Association’s camera coverage at the Academy and Ventura gates, our electronic data links can now carry high-definition video. HD cameras are being installed this month and will bring better coverage at both locations. An additional camera is being installed on the top of a light pole at the Ventura gate. This camera will provide video coverage of the AMAFCA field, which is located between the gate and Torrey Pines. While these cameras may help solve a crime, the best prevention is for the individual homeowner to insure that his/her property and home are secure.

Tanoan is financially sound and well positioned to address projects which will keep our community vibrant. Our monthly Board Meetings are held on the third Thursday each month at the HOA Office. I encourage you to attend, as your thoughts and ideas are always welcome and appreciated.

Paul Dembnicki
President, Board of Directors
