Parking Program in Near Future

I have a letter from the HOA announcing a parking program in the near future. At times the parking situation is fine and sometimes it's difficult to find a spot but that is usually only late at night. I've lived in Parkridge most of the last 15 years and never thought this was a significant enough of a problem to throw money and administration at. I may be wrong. Has the parking been a problem recently? included in the letter is to let residents know that garages will be required to fit a car so they may not be dedicated to storage and there will be inspections. Also, autos will need to be registered with a Parkridge address to have a parking pass. I assume this parking pass will keep a car from being towed. In a related issue I went to the COA (HOA) owners web site to read the most recent board meeting minutes but none have been posted since April 2012 and the site itself has not been updated since July 2012. Does anyone have information about that site? I did request and receive a copy of the most recent minutes from the management company. The most recent available were August (not October or even September). There was not mention of parking. I may begin to publish the minutes on this blog if the COA web site will no longer do so.

How Much is Parkridge Rent in 2012?

How much are people paying for 1 and 2 bedroom rents at Parkridge currently? I've been shopping around the neighborhood and see that 2 bedroom/2 bath down the street at Las Palmas is $1,800 to $1,900.

Parking Lot Full

Living in the front of the complex I don't get to the back parking or garages much. Since the parking lot has seemed so full so frequently in the recent past I assumed the construction project was ongoing. Since it turns out the "slope project" is in fact complete I wonder why it's so difficult to find a parking spot lately?

Break In 3000 Building on Thursday 2/23

I saw the police and a neighbor told me that someone came in a window during the day. Let's all keep an eye on each other's places and notice people who may not belong in Parkridge.

Information on Garage Project?

Does anyone know what is going on with the garages in the back of the complex? I have a garage back there and am concerned that I might have to empty it out. Can someone please let me know. Are they just empty? Posted by Anonymous to Parkridge Condos Fullerton at 7:16 PM

Ongoing Roof Leak October 2011

Mark #71 has left a new comment on your post "High Edison Bills?": (Please put this up as a post Howard) It's that time of year again.. rainy season... And like every other time it rains my ceiling "leaks like a sieve" and the same roof repair guy comes over and assures us that it will be repaired. Three seasons have passed and on several different times after it has rained he has claimed to have fixed the leaks.. I don't really know that they have been repaired because he does these repairs a day or two after the rain has passed. This afternoon my wife came home to find our entire hallway wall located under the A/C (I'm on the top floor)soaked and most of the ceiling tiles have warped as well. Is anyone else having a roof leak problem? I honestly feel that this roofing repairman has completely taken advantage of our community. Why else would our roof leak if he claims to have repaired it? (not once but several times mind you) He has gone on to blame poor gutter flow due to debris from the trees clogging them and poor maintenance of roof drainage systems in which we can not clean or maintain ourselves (per HOA rules). Oddly, just a day or two ago some guys were up on the roof apparently cleaning these things out. We have had to pay for damages and higher HOA fees far to often due to poor roofing jobs across the community and this is the final straw for me. I am assuming there will be another increase to the HOA dues to repair these leaks again in the future. Sorry to rant and I know a rebuttal about not going to a HOA meeting and submitting this issue to the board will be tossed my way but I have been to that rodeo to no prevail... because the board did not climb on my roof to repair it right? so why blame or yell at them for the horrible roof job? I know someone will reply quicker on here anyway! :) I will pursue action through my insurance agency this time as recommended by a lawyer and keep waiting for a call back from our swift acting management Co. (call made @ 2:30P and still no reply from the roofing guy and it is now 5:00PM) I hope that I am the only one with the leaky roof though. This is a crappy thing to deal with and it would be sad to know that others are too. Mark #71

High Edison Bills?

I can't figure out how to send an email, so I'm commenting hoping someone can help me out. My electric bills here are INSANE. I moved in in June, and there has been usage that cant possibly be justified. I'm in a 2/2, my August bill was $170 and September was $145. We quit running our AC after August's bill and it didnt even decrease. What are others paying? Could it be possible that someone is using my electricity?

No Parking

Anonymous has left a new comment I hate to say this again, but...There are people parking their work trucks here again. I came home tonight at 8:30 and there are two work trucks that are too big to be parking here taking up 3 spaces. Now I have to park on the street and risk a ticket so these people can park their work trucks and personal cars here. Doesn't seem fair to me.

COYOTE SIGHTING!!

COYOTE SIGHTING!!
For all those with small animals, on 8/2 between 12:30 and 1 a.m. I spotted a coyote between units 39 and 65. I was letting my dogs out and the coyote just came trotting up the walkway. Fortunately, coyote wasn't too big and spotted me before the dogs. I walked towards him and he ran off towards parking lot.

SO if you're out after dark, you might want to keep something with you to chase him off.

Auto Theft - July 26 2011

Today 7/26/2011, between 5:30 and 6:30 pm, my silver Tacoma tailgate was stolen in front of the 3054 building. Several people were coming home, people were in the pool, and the girls were out selling lemon-aid. Apparently, someone is comfortable steeling in plain site and during busy hours. This is the second time my truck has been stolen from (so far over $10,000 in damages) along with may others in our complex. If you saw, or suspect anything, please let me know or call the Fullerton Police department and let them know you have information about Park Ridge crimes. Thanks for your support.

Gorgeous Club House & Laundry Room

Wow, I just went into the club house for the first time in a while and wow. I think what I felt was pride. Next I felt grateful to Sally, Kelly and Jerry for all of their thankless and dedicated work. I wonder how many hours they have donated to our improvements & our enjoyment of Parkridge not to mention our vastly improved property values (or rents). Thanks to the others who have served with them along the way too.

When this team took over our complex/association we were broke and didn't feel like a community at all. All of the issues of the day were a combined distant second place to the water/hot water issue. Simply solving that issue (without an $8,000 - $10,000 special assessment I might add) would have been plenty to call their tenure hugely successful. Parkridge has undergone more beautification and modernization than I will attempt to list here. OK, a few items were the Pool, Spa and balconies.

Except for a contractor who neglected to cover a work in progress when the world knew it was about to rain the past few years have seen nothing but progress. Well, a renegade "neighbor" who does not realize that "they" are "us" and that the rules apply to all.

Our leaders have been approached by the management company to find out how we were able to build a reserve of funds and get all this work done at the same time when other HOA's are going under.

Thank you so very much!

Locked Bathrooms

Is it just me, or is it the more that gets done around here, the less we are told about it. I am sure there is a good explanation as to why OUR restrooms are now locked, but it would be nice if the information went out. I am not welcome at the monthly meetings, so I don't get to partake in the conversations that happen there, but we do have two sources of web interaction and one source of mail. Where are the updates? What is going on? Why is it that 3/4 of our complex on lock down? Again, I am sure there is a reason, but it is frustrating to just find things this way.

Commercial Vehicle Parking

I was under the impression that work trucks are not allowed to park in this complex. I have noticed a white work van that is very big parked here. It looks like the owner moves it every couple of days. What can we do to have this vehicle removed to allow parking for residence vehicles only. I parked a work vehicle her for a weekend in the past and had tow stickers put on it. What is the deal?

In California, bidding wars are One of the nuttier elements of the real estate boom has returned. Tess Vigeland explains.

Found on "The Housing Bubble Blog" which is a great source for housing & real estate information and articles.

From NPR http://marketplace.publicradio.org/display/web/2010/03/19/mm-multipleoffers/ “One of the nuttier elements of the real estate boom has returned. Tess Vigeland explains. ‘Kelly Frambach and her husband, Andy, moved into their first home just a few months ago. She’s a 32-year-old office manager for a construction company; he’s 29 and works in tire repair. This California ranch-style home in Chino Hills, just east of Los Angeles, boasts three bedrooms and two baths, 1,200 square feet for them and their seven and nine-year-old kids. They started going to open houses back in mid-2008, just as the market was collapsing.”

“They paid $285,000 for it — ten grand over the asking price — with an FHA-backed 30-year mortgage. Kelly: ‘And we thought it would be easy, because there were sooo many houses for sale. That’s what everybody thinks, but every house we put an offer on, there were so many offers.’”

What are the rules about leaving your garage open?

What are the rules about leaving your garage open? I have noticed one garage open every night for long periods of time. I was under the impression that your garage must be closed when not in use.
