As part of the ongoing effort to replace existing water mains with approximately 6,500 feet of new PVC pipe, Golden State Water will be performing a trial shutdown in the water distribution system tomorrow, May 5 between the hours of 11am and 2pm.
Affected Culver Crest residents should have received a flyer on their doors today. During this trial shutdown, residents “may experience fluctuating water pressure and brief periods of water service interruption.”
According to Golden State Water, potentially impacted streets include:
- Ranch Road from 10713 Ranch Road to Cranks Road
- Cranks Road from Ranch Road to Hill Street
- Youngworth from Ranch Road to Flaxton
- Flaxton from Youngworth to Drakewood
- Drakewood from Flaxton to Ranch Road
- Lugo Way from Ranch Road to end of of cul-de-sac
Any questions regarding the project can be directed to Golden State Water’s 800 number: (800) 999-4033.
Many neighbors have reported having had issues with mail delivery, e.g. getting a neighbor’s mail, finding your mail at the neighbors, etc. In effort to collect more data, we have set up a Google form to log mail delivery incidents. You can get to this form and the corresponding tracking sheet via the links below, or from the corresponding issues/subcommittees page.
- Here is the FORM to log your issues
- Here is the TRACKING SHEET that lists all the responses
Once we have a critical mass of issues reported we will take the list and communicate with the Culver City Postmaster.
Elections were held at tonight’s CCNA general meeting. The candidates for the four open seats were:
- Margarita Chie (incumbent)
- Rob Greenspan (incumbent)
- Scott Crichton
- Matt Keller
Rich Kissel made a motion to approve the 4 candidates as a slate. Motion was approved unanimously. Welcome Scott and Matt to the Culver Crest Neighborhood Association board of directors. Thanks go out to outgoing board members Jill McKeon and Troy Jackson for their service.
The next General Meeting of the Culver Crest Neighborhood Association will be on January 15, 2014, at Marycrest Manor, at 7pm.
The main topic will be elections to the CCNA Board. In early 2014, we altered the By-Laws of the CCNA to stagger the terms. Board members are elected to two-year terms, with 5 expiring one year and 4 the following. This time around there are 5 seats open for re-election.
Nominations may be made up until the election portion of the meeting. Any nominations sent in prior to the morning of the 15th will have their names printed on the ballot. Nominations made during the meeting will be write-ins. Please send any nominations to firstname.lastname@example.org
At the January 21st 2014 General Meeting of the Culver Crest Neighborhood Association, a new Board of Directors were elected. New Board members are:
- Mike Bauer
- Suzanne De Benedittis
- Wena Dows
- Antoine Durr
- Kyle Jones
- Rich Kissel
- Howard Lichtman
- John Romanak
- Ron Ostrin
Per the new By-Laws, the four top vote getters will be the first to serve for a two year period. The remaining 5 positions will be open for re-election (for two year terms) next year. Thus in any year, four or five seats will be open for re-election. Top four vote-getters were: Rich Kissel, John Romanak, Howard Lichtman, and Antoine Durr.
The Board of Directors of the Culver Crest Neighborhood Association adopted a revised set of By-Laws for the organization. The By-Laws haven’t been updated since CCNA was founded 9 years ago. The major impetus for updating them was to have staggered board terms, rather than re-electing all 9 seats every year. In addition, the update brought the By-Laws more in line with the manner in which CCNA has actually operated over the last 9 years.
The Culver City Fire Marshal has informed certain Culver Crest homeowners that their properties are to be designated as being in a Very High Fire Hazard Severity Zone (VHFHSZ). The Fire Marshall is working on developing a local ordinance to present to City Council for adoption next month.
Portion of Culver Crest (in red) to be designated Very High Fire Hazard Severity Zone (VHFHSZ)
Briefly, homes designated as such will:
- Need to meet state brush clearance requirements
- Need to comply with specific CA “Ignition Resistant Construction” building codes
- Require their owners to disclose the VHFHSZ status when transferring ownership.
