New Business

Flood Insurance

A discussion was held regarding flood insurance.  Art Hopkins joined the Board meeting to add data and information regarding flood and earthquake insurance.  It was determined that Robert Bishop, Insurance Committee Chair would analyze the data provided to us by Art Hopkins.  They will then jointly make a recommendation regarding flood and earthquake insurance coverage to the Board of Directors in the near future.


Homeowners Communication

There was further discussion regarding the need to wait to remodel the interior of El Mirador vs. proceeding with the Elevator Modernization project.  The Elevator Modernization project costs are being held in the Reserve account.  There isn’t any money set aside for interior remodeling so this would be a Special Assessment potentially costing each homeowner $25k up to $50k, depending on the scope of the project.


It was reemphasized that skateboarding and riding scooters anywhere on the grounds of Coronado Shores will not be tolerated.
