CONSENT CALENDAR

(#6.1) Geologic Hazard Abatement District No. 1990-01 (GHAD) – Adopt Resolution GHAD 2009-004 – Accepting Ownership of Certain Open Space Parcels in Windemere Phase 2 (APNs 223-340-064 and 223-340-065).

Mbr. Perkins asked why the GHAD rather than the Home Owners Association (HOA) is responsible for the interior parcels of the subdivision.  Senior Engineer Robin Bartlett responded that there is no HOA in the area and that this how the subdivision maps were prepared.  Mbr. Perkins stated that he does not like the concept of taking parcels that are located in the interior of a subdivision into the GHAD.

Mbr. Perkins’ motion to adopt Resolution GHAD 2009-004 was seconded by Mbr. Livingstone and passed 4-0.  Board Chair Wilson was absent.

NEW BUSINESS

(#8.1) Geologic Hazard Abatement District No. 1990-01 (GHAD) – Adopt Resolution GHAD 2009-005 – Adopting the Revised Plan of Control, Dated August 28, 2009, as the Plan of Control for Geologic Hazard Abatement District No. 1990-01.

Board Vice Chair Hudson summarized the report.  The current revision combines the 2003 Plan of Controls (POC) with the POCs for the Silva Property and Old Ranch Summit and provides clarification of the GHAD’s maintenance responsibilities. The GHAD was never intended to repair localized damage to individual homes or private property and does not have any responsibility with regard to expansive or compressible soils, except when they impact public improvements or if they cause a landslide.

There were no questions from the Board and no public comment.

Mbr. Perkins’ motion to adopt Resolution GHAD 2009-005 was seconded by Mbr. Rowley and passed 4-0.  Board Chair Wilson was absent.
