Association takes steps against delinquent members

RANCHO SANTA FE — The Rancho Santa Fe Association has taken the next step in naming property owners who are delinquent on their Association fees. 

At its Sept. 6 meeting, the parcel numbers of the offenders were released.

The next step, which the staff is researching, will be to release the names of the offenders.

“We are not listing the names or addresses, but this is something new,” said Pete Smith, Association manager.

Association director Ann Boon asked why the names of the offenders are not being released. Smith told her the legal ramifications of doing so are being researched.

Between the nine offenders, a total of about $300,000 is owed the Association.

“We are going to take a more aggressive stance,” Smith said.

The first step in collecting the delinquent fees is not allowing the offenders to play golf, tennis or use the riding club or restaurant.

“It’s a very effective tool,” Smith said.

In other Association news, Ivan Holler, Association planning director, reported that the resealing of six roadways in the Covenant has been finished and planning for next year’s resealing projects is under way.

Director Anne Feigner asked Holler how individual residents can get street repairs on their own streets.

“They should send the Association a letter and we would be glad to add it to our list,” Holler said.

Also, Holler told the Association that around the end of September, the plan and draft environmental impact report concerning round-abouts should be available for review by the Association and the public. Copies may be viewed at the library or online

Three are three proposed round-abouts that would be constructed in one project.

The first is the intersection of Camino Del Norte and Del Dios Highway.

The next is the intersection of Paseo Plateada and Monte Viejo.

The last one is at the intersection of Via de la Valle and Paseo Delicias.

Matt Wellhauser, patrol chief, introduced Eddie Jackson, a new patrolman for the Rancho Santa Fe Patrol. He comes to the patrol after 33 years in the San Diego Sheriff’s Office.

The Association meets the first and third Thursday of the month at 9 a.m. at the Association office, 17022 Avenida de Acacias.

The Association can also be reached by calling (858) 756-1174.
