The electrical panes that power the water system controllers and street lights are being replaced. The existing electrical panels are damaged from age and need to be replaced for safety and other reasons. The electrical panel on Shelby Creek has been replaced. The electrical panel on Copper Peak is scheduled to be replaced as soon as possible.

 

After the electrical panels are replaced, we are planning to install new California Ridge signs. We hope to have this completed before Summer, 2019.

As many of you might know, the painting project has been delayed until mid-January, 2019. The reason for the delay is because there are several homeowners who have not made the required repairs to siding of their homes. We must ensure that 100% of all California Ridge homes are repaired before we start painting. The Board and Compass Management are working on a plan to ensure that all homes are ready in time so that we can start painting in January.

If you choose EKIM to complete your siding repairs prior to the painting project, you can ignore this post. For those homeowners using a different contractor than EKIM, you must use the same siding as the existing siding or Hardie Board (composite).  The following information might have changed, but check with Pine Cone Lumber in Sunnyvale and ask for part number 5848DFP8. Refer to the previous instructions for primer, caulking, etc. information. You might also be able to find the material at Economy Lumber. Note: you cannot buy this siding at Home Depot. All homes not contracted with EKIM will be reinspected. Please make sure repairs are completed correctly using the same material, otherwise you may be required to redo the work. Any work completed must be "like for like."

The following is the current status of the painting project (March 15, 2019):

1. All homes have been inspected.

2. There is a tentative plan to begin the painting project in early May.

This does not leave much time to complete siding repairs. If you are plan on using your own contractor, please submit a fully completed architecture request form as soon as possible. Failing to submit a completed form may delay your home repair. Homeowners who do not submit a fully completed architecture request form and allow their contractors to complete repairs without Board approval will face fines and the repairs might need to be redone. Again, there is a Board meeting next week and another meeting on April 18. The architecture request form is located on the Documents page (General section).

You do not need to complete a architecture request form is you contract with Ekim construction.
