El Mirador Building Committee Reports:
Landscape Committee– Patricia Boer
The ‘shack island’ improvement has been largely completed except for the
addition of flowers which will provide color starting in the spring, 2023. The Board
was pleased with the improvements. We have 7 Morton Figs that would qualify as
Heritage Trees according to the City of Coronado Program. We can apply for this
status which would put the trees under the control of the City of Coronado for
maintenance and protection. L&R will apply for this status for at least one tree in
2023. Please refer to the Landscape Report for additional details.
L &R Committee Report– Irene Pedroza
L&R committee met and considered several items of interest. Please refer to the
L&R minutes for additional details. Irene suggested that we as a board
recommend the production of an App to allow for scheduling, information and
eventually for access to amenities. The Board of Directors unanimously approved
the motion to recommend this strategy to the L &R committee.

Budget for 2023
The budget for 2023 and projections of reserve expenses were thoroughly
reviewed and modified as appropriate by the Board of Directors at a meeting on
November 15, 2022. Based on budget review, modifications for the budget were
sent to Consortium who will provide us with the final details of the needed
increase in HOA dues for 2023. It was projected by Luis Lozano that the increase
of the HOA would be about 12%, due to serious inflation and escalation of costs
of utilities. Another Board of Director’s meeting will be held to explain the budget
and HOA increases on or before November 30, 2022. Time of the meeting will be
It was proposed by Irene Pedroza that the Board of Directors approve the
resolution to require that provided standard shirts with a building logo be worn
by Front Desk staff. An amendment to motion requested that Rafael Estrada
consult with staff members to obtain their input about this new requirement.
Rafael will report back on this at the next board meeting.
A holiday party was planned to be held in the lobby on December 17, 2022 at 5-7
pm in the evening. Irene will coordinate the planning of this event.
Complaints are currently received in a random manner making it difficult to
address the issues of concern. This issue was discussed and it was decided to
create a defined process. Elizabeth Hammond will create a template for complaint
description. The board approved the plan to require that all complaints be in
writing, using the template and including specific details about the issue.
Complaint forms will be available at the front desk, from Rafael, and attached to
an email to all residents and owners. Complaints not provided in writing will not
be recorded. Each month, at least one member of the board will review the
complaints with Rafael in order to define what issues need to be on the board
