General Manager's Newsletter- JAN-FEB 2021


Dear Cays Homeowners and Residents,

As we finish the second week of February 2021, COVID levels have finally dropped enough to allow San Diego County to move from the Purple Tier to Red. Additionally, Governor Newsome has rescinded the stay-at-home order and businesses are able to open up again with restaurants serving patrons outdoors and talk of allowing 25% occupancy indoors in the near future. The biggest news is the mad scramble to vaccinate the country amidst reports of virus mutations. Coronado has opened a testing site at the Coronado Club Room and Boathouse near Glorietta Bay Park and is providing vaccinations via Sharp Hospital at the Coronado Community Center, 1845 Strand Way, but appointments are being controlled by the County. City Manager Blair King reported at the January Board meeting that the appointment list is refreshed on Saturdays and fills up rapidly since times are available to the entire County. Other opportunities are available for appointments by monitoring the County site and staying alert for appointment cancellations. If you are quick enough and flexible with your schedule, you can seize the opportunity and grab an open slot.

Rain and wind brought a bit of chaos to the Cays but we managed to survive mostly intact. Recent renovations in Montego, Antigua, Kingston, and Mardi Gras Villages included the sealing of flat roofs and paid off with only a few minor leaks being reported. Safety patrols and Park West performed storm cleanup immediately following the rain and kept the roadways clear of palm tree debris and a few rather large tumbleweeds! Safety patrol and HOA staff also assisted owners with securing boats and small watercraft. Landscape was adversely affected by the salt spray carried by the wind and many plants and trees are showing signs of being burnt. I cannot recall a windstorm of that intensity for that long a duration since my family moved to the Cays almost 24 years ago. Crazy!

The Board of Directors approved a 2020-2021 CCHOA Strategic Plan produced through the combined efforts of past-HOA President Mark Crisson and Staff. The Plan is provided below and lays out the Association’s mission, vision, values, and strategic priorities. The plan will be updated annually as strategic priorities change and new annual budgets are implemented. The Mission is what the Board and Staff work together to deliver to the membership on a day-to-day basis. The Vision is what we strive for as a group of dedicated volunteers and professionals. Our Values guide our actions and interactions with members. Our Strategic Priorities compliment our Mission and include important concepts such as value, communications, and a sense of ownership. From my 25 years in the Navy, I learned that ownership is a critical factor in making an organization successful because it means everyone is contributing to the overall well-being of the organization by taking care of their individual responsibilities as well as by taking action/making suggestions to correct items that improve the entire organization. Don’t walk past a problem, stop and take action. If your home’s exterior needs repair and is not up to the standard of your neighborhood, take action to get it fixed and take pride in having a beautiful home and neighborhood!

Good Neighbor Tip: Parking is always a hot topic in the Cays since so many cars are parked on the street and there is little available space due to the closeness of our homes and driveways. If you park in your driveway, make sure you do not block the sidewalk. In addition to being against the law, it forces pedestrians into the street where they could be potentially hit by a passing car. Make cleaning out your garage a New Year’s resolution and get your car off the street while improving the safety of the neighborhood. Reminder: Cars are only allowed to be parked in the same spot for a maximum of 72 hours.

To help with your cleanup, the City of Coronado is hosting a shredding and electronic waste recycling event on February 27, 2021 from 8 am to 1 pm at north City Hall parking lot, 1825 Strand Way. Shredding is limited to two bankers boxes (10″x12″x15″) per household. Unwanted electronics will be collected including TVs, computer monitors, printers, fax machines, VCRs, DVD players, cell phones and answering machines. No other household hazardous waste material will be accepted. However, hazardous waste can be turned in at no charge via the City’s household hazardous waste disposal program at 101 B Avenue on Saturdays from 10am-2pm. The site is closed for Saturdays that fall on a holiday weekend. This service is for Coronado resident’s only and does not include commercial or contractor generated waste.

Stay safe and stay healthy,

Henry Angelino
CCHOA General Manager
