SECTION 1. INFORMATION

Organization: Coronado Shores consists of eleven distinct entities.  The ten (10) separate condominium associations are each responsible for their own building and are governed by a Board of Directors elected by their owners.  The Landscape & Recreation Committee is responsible for the recreation amenities and common elements outside the buildings.

Board of Directors:  The Coronado Shores Condominium Association #9 (also known as El Mirador building) Board of Directors is comprised of five homeowners who are elected at the annual homeowners meeting held in March. The Board sets policy that is implemented and enforced by the Building Manager and the staff. Board meetings are usually held monthly and homeowners are encouraged to attend. Agendas are posted at the mailroom bulletin board in addition to both lobbies.

L & R Committee:  The Landscape & Recreation (L & R) Committee is responsible for operations and maintenance of the common area amenities, facilities and services such as the patrol service, landscaping, streets, walkways, pools, tennis courts, Health Club, Beach Club and Roeder Pavilion. The L & R Committee is governed by representatives appointed from each of the ten Associations.

This Committee oversees the L & R General Manager and staff.  They formulate policies, rules and regulations for the common areas.  The annual budget is expensed to each of the ten associations.  Any issues regarding the common areas outside the building should be presented to your association manager who will forward it to your L & R representative.

Enforcement Committee:  This committee, with representation from each Association, oversees the upkeep and maintenance of the seawall, roadways and sewer.  It is the only committee with the right to assess the associations without prior approval.

Sub-Committees: Currently, Sub-Committees have been formed for the Beach Club, Landscape, Facilities, Recreation and Insurance.  Owners interested in participating should inform the association manager.

Definition of a Condominium: “Unit” shall mean and refer to the elements of a Condominium that are not owned in common with other owners of other Condominiums.  The boundaries of a Unit shall be the unfinished interior surfaces of the perimeter walls, floors, ceilings, windows, and doors of each Unit, where they exist, and otherwise to the vertical or horizontal planes at the limits of the dimensions as shown on the condominium plan, that has been filed in the office of the County Recorder of San Diego County.

Communication:  Bulletin boards are located in the mailroom, inside each elevator cab and at each lobby.  Please check these regularly for important notices and information regarding El Mirador.   Extra copies of the L & R monthly newsletter containing important information regarding Coronado Shores are also available in the mailroom.

Manager (619-437-4575): The building manager works at the direction of the Board of Directors to handle daily operations and oversee the staff.  The building manager is normally available weekdays during normal business hours.

Door People (619-437-4575): Door People (not bellhops or porters) are employed around the clock all year long. The emphasis of their service is the general welfare and safety of all residents.  Please respect their authority and don’t hesitate to ask if you should need copies of  the building and community rules.

Assessments: Prompt payment of assessments is necessary for the smooth operation of your Association. Assessments are due on the first of each month and delinquent if not paid by the fifteenth.  Owners may elect the free service of an automatic debit from a designated bank account. Options for on-line credit card payments and e checks are available for an additional fee. Owners may also opt to go paperless and receive “e-statements”.   Management can provide additional information.

Delinquent assessments will incur a 10% late charge.  If an assessment is delinquent for more than 30 days, interest may be imposed on all sums due including the delinquent assessment, collection charges and late charges at an annual percentage rate of 12%.  After 60 days, delinquent assessments may result in a lien being filed against your condominium. The lien shall include all delinquent assessments, lien preparation fee, late charges, interest at 12% per annum and filing fees.  Collection of delinquent accounts may also include filing a lawsuit or foreclosure when the assessment exceeds $1,800 or is more than 12 months delinquent.

Architectural Modifications:  Any unit alterations or modifications, including but not limited to flooring, plumbing, electrical and/or structural changes, shall first be submitted for review and approval.  Contact the front desk or the building manager for the guidelines.

SECTION 3.  DISCIPLINE POLICY AND SCHEDULE OF PENALTIES

  1. VIOLATION PROCEDURE:

The following procedure will apply to all violations and infractions of the Governing Documents and rules and regulations.  Owners may report violations to Management or Board of Directors by submitting a written notice describing the violation.  The Board of Directors (“Board”), Management, or committee appointed by the Board may also note any violations discovered during walk-throughs or by personal knowledge of any of its members or representatives.

At the time a violation is noted or reported, action will be taken as follows:

  1. The Board shall give written notice to the owner. The notice will contain a description of the violation, instructions regarding response to the notice and request for correction of the violation.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Board may determine, in its sole discretion, that the violation is of a nature or severity that no warning will be issued and the violation will be subject to immediate notice and opportunity for hearing to impose disciplinary action, including fines.  In even more serious situations, the matter will be referred directly to legal counsel.
  2. If the violation continues or is repeated, or the Board has determined no warning letter will be issued, the Board shall give the Owner a second notice of the violation setting a hearing before the Board. The notice shall be given not less than fifteen (15) days prior to the date of the hearing before the Board.  The notice shall include the date, time, and location of the hearing, the nature of the alleged violation, and a statement that the member has the right to attend and may address the Board at the meeting.  The Board shall meet in executive session if requested to do so by the member being disciplined.
  3. At the hearing, the Board shall allow the owner an opportunity to be heard either orally or in writing and to present evidence and testimony as reasonable under the circumstances and as determined by the Board. If the Board concludes that the alleged violation occurred, the Board may impose monetary penalties, temporarily suspend voting and membership privileges, including Coronado Shores Recreational Facilities privileges, for a period not to exceed thirty (30) days or take any other disciplinary action permitted by the Governing Documents.   Cross-examination of witnesses will not be allowed.

If the Board finds that a violation occurred and imposes discipline on a member, the Board shall provide the member a written notification of the disciplinary action, by either personal delivery or first-class mail, within fifteen (15) days following the action.  The disciplinary action will be effective beginning five days after the notice of hearing results is sent to the Owners.

  1. If, after notice and hearing, a violation is found to have occurred, it may be further found to be a “continuing violation” as defined herein. A continuing violation is a violation that remains unchanged until corrected by the violating owner.  An example of a continuing violation includes, but is not limited to, unapproved Architectural modifications.  If the Board finds that a continuing violation is occurring, the Board may levy a fine on a periodic recurring basis (without further notice and hearing) until the violation is corrected.  The owner will be notified in the initial hearing notice that the alleged violation may be deemed a continuing violation, potentially subjecting the owner to periodic fines without further notice.
  2. If the violation is repeated, or if the response is otherwise unsatisfactory, the Board may impose additional fines until such time as the matter is satisfactorily resolved.
  3. If the violation continues, or is repeated, the Board may also refer the matter to the Association’s legal counsel. If required by Civil Code sections 5905 or 5930, alternative dispute resolution will be offered.  The homeowner may be liable for the Association’s legal costs and fees.
  4. Notwithstanding the foregoing, under circumstances involving conduct that constitutes (a) an immediate and unreasonable infringement of, or threat to, the safety or quiet enjoyment of neighboring owners; (b) a traffic or fire hazard; or (c) a threat of material damage to, or destruction of, the Common Area; or (5) a violation of the Governing Documents is of such a nature that there is no material question regarding the identity of the violator or whether a violation has occurred, the Board or its agents may contact the appropriate civil authorities and undertake immediate corrective action and conduct a hearing as soon thereafter as possible, if either (1) requested by the offending owner within five (5) days following the Association’s actions, or (2) on its own initiative.
  5. The amount of monetary penalties shall be established from time to time by the Board, and a schedule thereof shall be distributed to the Members by personal delivery or first class mail. Distribution of additional fine schedules is not required unless there are any changes to an existing schedule.

FINE SCHEDULE

Fines for first time violations may be levied in accordance with the following schedule:

Hazardous Activities *                                 $100 – $500

Fines shall be in addition to an assessment equal to any applicable cost of repair.  Fines for continuing or repeated violations may be increased in $100.00 increments at the discretion of the Board.  In the discretion of the Board, fines for continuing violations may be imposed on a daily basis until the violation is corrected.  For the purposes of this Fine Schedule, a “continuing or repeated violation” shall be one that is assessed to a single lot within a twelve-month period. However, should a twelve-month period pass without any violations, a first notice to correct the violation must be sent by the Association prior to imposing any fines.

Four or more violations assessed to a single lot in any six-month period may result in an additional fine of up to $1,000.00, at the discretion of the Board.
