2006-2007 Coto de Caza Board of Directors Meeting, Standing Room Only!
…and Coto de Caza’s Tar Baby
first 2006-2007 Coto de Caza Board of Directors Meeting, can best be described
as standing-room only, with the local media well represented. A
political junkie would have felt right at home, as you could sense the
excitement, the energy and the
tension in the air!. Failed
candidate Dr. Betty Olsen thanked Yocham and Zipperman for their success and
wished them the best.
was a lengthy discussion about whether to authorize a particular group to use
the Sports Park. The group
volunteered to put down some “good faith money” and anything else that may
be required. Varo suggested that
at least one board member should meet with the Recreation Committee to come up
with some sort of resolution.
topic of water conservation came up, where new board member Zipperman would
see the association spending over 10% of the yearly budget on re-piping, and
then recovering the investment within a couple of years – not so fast,
responded a landscaping committee member, since “we have been studying this
issue for over two years”.
Orduno described a public safety situation in the Summerfield district and
requested the board’s help: Yo
called Coto’s private security
company right after last weekend’s accident.
The response was “what do you want us to do”?.
You eventually called the Sheriff’s office.
The dispatchers told her that it was the CHP’s responsibility.
She also described how routinely teenagers in the district race up and
down the street. Some not old
enough to have a driver’s license.
Orduno has taken upon herself to contact the parent’s who do not see
anything wrong with their kids driving “next door”.
She also described an increase of rush hour cyclists in and around
Vista Del Verde, some even riding
pairwise making the early morning commute even more perilous. Varo stated that
“there were many things that could be done” (none was named, and no one in
the board volunteered to champion this most important issue).
The security consultant opined on the cyclists issue.
The conversation obviously lacked the historical element and resembled more
and/or Tao discussed elsewhere.

argued that parents should take more responsibility for their kid’s actions.
Ironic, given that a white Mercedes with personalized license plates
with the name of a prominent Real Estate business almost runs down a motorist
as he was speeding along Vista del Verde – to get to the Coto de Caza board
of Directors Meeting! To top it
off, a resident who “rode circles” at Orduno’s district park was also in
attendance. Yo then wondered, (and so do we), how can you tell the adult
from the kid?
our recollection, every issue raised during the meeting seemed to have an
owner from the board - some sort of follow up. With
the exception of public safety. Even
the public safety committee is not fully constituted – a meeting is
scheduled for July 11, 2006 with meeting place TBD – a big surprise given
that we are already six months away from the first traffic fatality within
Coto de Caza in 10 years ( and the second one just three months ago)!
- the takeaway? Public
Safety is Coto de Caza’s Tar Baby!
how did the new Coto de Caza board of directors do?
Was it a conservator or salvator? - based on this first
meeting, the status quo triumphed overwhelmingly
