Silver-Bronze will hold a special meeting of its membership on Thursday, March 5. It is expected that at the conclusion of that meeting Silver-Bronze’s board will enter into a purchase and sale agreement with a new buyer for the Coto Valley Club. The Village Working Group will update the community about Silver-Bronze’s decision as soon as the information is available.
The Village Working Group would also like to take a moment to correct misinformation in a recent email sent out from a Preserve the Village email address.
- The Village Working group’s purpose is to gather information regarding the impending sale of the Coto Valley Club and share it with Village members.
- The group comprises Village residents – your neighbors – who have donated their time for the past 10 months. They have no connection to Silver-Bronze, Stonefield or any other interested party beyond opening lines of communication. To insinuate anything else is simply incorrect.
- The Village HOA board also is composed of your neighbors who volunteer their time to serve on the community.
- The Village Working Group has consistently recommended the community come together and works cooperatively and proactively with the new buyer of the club – whoever that is.
- The Village Working Group has consistently said it believes the practice of “buying votes” is a terrible idea and has said as much to Silver-Bronze and Stonefield Development.
- The survey from July 2014 was sent to every Village member by mail and an electronic version of the survey was posted to the blog. Every Village member had the opportunity to take the survey. Pre-paid return postage was included with the mailed surveys. Nearly 200 Village members opted to make their voices heard.
- The purpose of the survey was to have Village members identify the features of the Village they wanted to maintain, such as home values and aesthetics, and the elements they wanted to prevent, such as noise, light pollution and traffic. You can read the survey here.
- Lastly, the Village Working Group will continue with its charter of gathering information and sharing it with the community. When Silver-Bronze enters into a purchase and sale agreement, the Village Working Group will update the community.
At the February Village HOA meeting, residents asked for contact information for Silver-Bronze’s board and for the area’s representative to the county board of supervisors.

The Village Working Group provided an update to the community at the February Village HOA meeting. Below is the presentation. As of this writing, Silver-Bronze’s board has pushed back the date by 10+ days when it will review and accept a bid for its club house property. As new information is available, the VWG will post updates to the blog.
Feel free to send your questions about SBC’s impending sale to the Village Working Group.

February 2015 Executive Meeting Agenda
The Village Working Group has learned that an operator of an event planning company, with whom the VWG has been in contact, plans to submit by the end of the week a bid to purchase the Coto Valley Country Club from Silver-Bronze.
The operator states his vision as “building a family friendly sports facility with banquet rooms available for special occasions.” He acknowledges the clubhouse would need a “complete remodel” and will require bringing the building up to current codes. As such, he said he intends to make a significant investment in the facility. He also said his vision is to “bring life back to this venue so rich in history of the development of Coto de Caza.”
The operator operates the Dove Canyon Courtyard where he hosts weddings, birthdays and celebratory events. For more information about the operator, visit his business sites at Dove Canyon Courtyard and All Star Events.
Silver-Bronze’s board is expected to meet next week to review bids. The VWG does not know if Silver-Bronze will accept a late bid from this operator. As the Village Working Group learns more information it will update the blog.
Updated: According to an email from the operator, Kenney Paul, he did submit a bid to SBC at the end of last week.
The owners of the Coto Valley Country Club, Silver-Bronze Corporation (SBC), still have the club up for sale. According to a Silver-Bronze representative, 8 bids have been received: 6 from homebuilders and 2 from senior assisted-living operators. The bidders have been asked to submit “best and final offers.” Continue reading
