The BOD’s met with Comcast Account Executives this week and the Board has agreed to have Comcast Executives, along with their Marketing Team come out to Marbella to give a presentation on alternative options for our community.

Periodic inspections are conducted to assist you in identifying conditions that need attention. There are many roofs in the community that are in need of roof cleaning. Please take the time to inspect your roof. If you see mold/mildew, it’s time to schedule your cleaning. Your neighbors and the entire community appreciate your due diligence.
Thank you for your cooperation.

Update on Hydraulic Leak on our Streets
I wanted to give you an update on the hydraulic leak that spilled throughout the community from Waste Management.
After Waste Management was out last week to clean the streets, they have been back in the community this week flushing the streets with water which helps speed up the cleaning process since we have not been getting any rain (until today). We are beginning to see improvements with the stains fading and will continue to stay on top of Waste Management throughout the cleanup process.
