SURVEY: Future of Coto Valley Club Area

The Village Working Group wants to hear your thoughts about features and benefits about the neighborhood that is most important to you.

In the July newsletter arriving this week homeowners will find a paper survey and self-addressed stamped envelope. If you would prefer to take the survey online, you can access it by clicking on the survey link. You only need to complete the survey once.

By way of background, the Village Working Group believes change is coming to the Coto Valley Club, known as CVCC. Silver Bronze Corporation owns the club property and the equestrian center. Stonefield Development owns the former tennis college and some courts. Both organizations are entertaining options that may result in the redevelopment of the club area. The future of CVCC is related to the discussions Silver Bronze is having with Oak Grove regarding the equestrian center.

By coming together and deciding what is most important to us as Village homeowners, we can better communicate our wants and desirers to potential developers. Our hope is that we can work toward a mutually beneficial plan.

Please take a moment to complete the brief survey by either filling out the paper survey and mailing it in to First Service Residential or completing the online survey. The input you provide will be used to shape a plan representing the Village’s point of view regarding any development or action plans being considered for the club.

Thank you!

VWG: What Happened at July 2 Silver-Bronze Meeting

A special election meeting of Silver-Bronze Corporation members was  held on July 2 at the Coto Valley Club. Members were voting on three items, briefly described as:

  • Measure 1: removal of the current board of directors
  • Measure 2: If Measure 1 passed, elect a new board of directors
  • Measure 3: Amend SBC bylaws to enable transfers of Silver-Bronze Equity Memberships allowing multiple memberships to be owned by an equity member, with full rights of each equity membership owned.

At the meeting it was noted that the language on the proxy forms provided by Oak Grove differed from the proxy forms provided by The Ballot Box, an elections inspection company hired by SBC’s board.

As a result of the discrepancy, The Ballot Box deemed Oak Grove’s proxy ineligible and there were not enough SBC proxies and attending members to meet quorum. Oak Grove and its attorneys disagree with The Ballot Box’s ruling and contend the proxy ballots should be counted. The meeting adjourned without further decisions.

Per Ken Agid, president of SBC’s board of directors, the board has tentatively set a new Special Elections Meeting date for August 13 at 6:30 p.m. at Coto Valley Club.

Both sides say they expect to go to court this week to determine the validity of the Oak Grove proxies.
