Message from the Board of Directors
Posted on Apr 1st, 2016
April 2016
 
Dear Homeowner:
 
In this month’s News from the Board, we address something that perhaps many of us will face while living in Ranch Solano—disputes with our neighbors.
 
A number of neighbor-to-neighbor issues come to the Board of Directors attention, including dog behavior, fences, noise, and landscape issues. Homeowners often look first to the Board for resolution. While it often seems like the Board is or should be the final arbiter of all things in our lovely neighborhood, we are not provided with the authority to resolve these disputes absent clear authority via the CC&Rs. Even in the presence of some authority we are often only able to offer minor assistance. We therefore encourage you to try a different track, which is more likely to provide you with a satisfactory solution and at the same time allow you to build strong and harmonious relationships with your neighbors.
 
If there is a problem, we strongly encourage you to first attempt to informally resolve the dispute directly with your neighbor:
Work from the premise that the other person is unaware of the problem.
Be open and pleasant.
Propose a solution, offering to split costs, if you can.
Don’t presume that your neighbor will be unwilling to work out a compromise solution.
In the face of an initial negative response, don’t “burn your bridges” to future resolution by displays of anger which you later might regret.
 
In the end, each of us is best served by demonstrating an attitude of cooperation and compromise. Each of us striving to be good neighbors in all matters may be the most direct path to the enjoyment of our homes and beautiful neighborhood.  The Board of Directors generally does not serve as a body of mediation in disputes between neighbors.
 
Finally, we encourage each of you to get involved in the Homeowners Association via direct participation on one of the HOA’s several Committees [or on the Board!]  This direct participation is most rewarding and your active participation on, for example, the Park Committee, Neighborhood Watch, and the Website Committee, remains your best track to helping the Board move in a direction you feel best suits the neighborhood at large.
If you are interested, contact Property Manager Jodi Adams at The Kelly Company, (707) 428-0490.
 
Robert Schuster,
Board President
 
Dennis Beardsley,
Board Vice-President
