I would like to provide the minutes of the April 8, 2018 general meeting (attached.)  I encourage everyone, especially those not in attendance to read through all of it.  Lots of important and interesting information included.  Since the meeting there have been updates, one is the silica sand has been replaced in the upper pool and spa filters.  What a difference, now that the dust from the sand has been filtered out nice crystal clear water and no shutting down of the heat pump.  Consistent hot water in the spa. The lower pool filter sand will be replaced when the materials arrive.  Pool covers (for lower pool) have been delivered and the replacement “slings” for our chaise lounges have been ordered.

We are still on the hunt for a full time pool person!  If you know someone that might be interested in learning a new skill, let them know about the job. We will train! Another concern of some of HOA members is the tentative retirement of Jesus.  I was speaking to him this morning, and it has been decided that he is taking a 2 week leave of absence to take care of his property in San Matias.  He is happy and looking forward to coming back and working here, so no farewell party will be planned at this time.  I did let him know that we all will be looking forward to seeing him again as well.

The board has decided that it is time to review the duties and responsibilities of the management company.  It has been nearly 10 years since this has been done and it needs to be revised to suit our present needs.  If you have any thoughts on this issue we would like to hear from you. If you are interested in participating on the committee to put this process together, please let us know.

A reminder to all home owners, renters and lot owners, if there are any issues arising in the development that come to your attention, please contact our management company so they may handle whatever it is. That is what they are being paid for.  The current board members are not year around residents and are not always present on site.  Please contact Scott Parkman Mx Cell (686.573.0298) or US Cell (509.850.2030), or Gabriella at 686.576.0351 (PMD office; Hours 8 to 3:30) to present your concern.  If it is not being addressed in a timely manner please contact the HOA via this email address ( and we will try to address the issue as well as we can from a distance. Remember, contact the Parkstrong office first.  Of course, if it’s an emergency, 1st call is to security for assistance (686.577.3161) or 911! Yes, that works in Mexico too!

I would like to thank all of the homeowners that attended the general meeting and all the questions and concerns that they presented.  I hope that their questions and concerns were adequately answered.  The open dialogue brings out great ideas for moving forward to keep our development the great place that it is.  I would also like to thank the past board and committee members for all the work they have done, it is very much appreciated.  We are all volunteers and are doing the best that we can.  Wishing you all a great summer!
