Notice of Proposed Rule Change and 28-Day Review

November 3, 2023

Click here to view the proposed Dispute Resolution Policies updated to replace the former Internal Dispute Resolution (IDR) and Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) Policies for the Community of Harbor Bay Isle Owners’ Association (CHBIOA).

Civil Code § 4360 (a) (January 1, 2022) The Notice and Approval of Rule Change by Board requires that when a change of a rule is proposed, it must be sent out to the Community with a summary description and the proposed text for a 28-day comment period through “general delivery” as defined in Civil Code § 4045 (January 1, 2019) Providing General Delivery or Notice.

The change to Dispute Resolution Policies is being updated from the two separate 2009 versions of IDR Policies and ADR Policies, and has been combined into a single document which is expanded to encompass all current laws regarding disputes between an HOA and an Owner within the Community and Homeowner Associations therein. The text for the update is enclosed for your review and comment. You still receive the old versions with your budget documents as this update will not have received a final vote prior to distribution of the budget.

The CHBIOA Board of Directors has voted to send the updated Dispute Resolution Policies for Community review, and will consider all comments prior to voting on the rule change at the CHBIOA Board Meeting, December 6, 2023 at 6:45 pm, in the Poppy Room located at 3195 Mecartney Road, Alameda, CA 94502.

Comments will be accepted through 5pm on December 1, 2023. Comments may be delivered to the CHBIOA Community Office, 3195 Mecartney Road, Alameda, CA 94502 or sent via email to ExecutiveDirector@harborbay.org.  The CHBIOA Board will review any comments received by the deadline at their board meeting prior to the vote, as indicated above.

Low visibility driving can kill

Published on November 01, 2023

“Nearly two years ago our mom, Wilma Chan, was struck and killed by a car as she crossed Shoreline Drive in the crosswalk. Her untimely death occurred less than a week before the end of Daylight Saving Time, when the angle of the morning sun can reduce visibility. The driver’s vision was impeded by the sun in her eyes, but she kept driving, and in an instant, our lives changed forever. Our family lost a beloved mom, grandmother, sister, and aunt. Our community lost their County Supervisor, a former State Assembly leader, and an accomplished trailblazer whose work was not done,” said Daren Chan.

“Our loss could have been avoided, so as we enter this same time of year, we would like to take the opportunity to remind everyone to take extra precautions to prevent another tragedy,” said Jennifer Chan.

Earlier this year another fatal crash occurred on a sunny Alameda morning. This time, a driver who left home without first de-fogging their car’s windshield failed to see an elderly pedestrian crossing the street. The pedestrian was struck and killed.

Wilma Chan’s children and the City of Alameda are working together to spread awareness about the dangers of driving with low visibility. They share these tips from the Alameda Police Department:

  • Defrost your windshields before driving, and make sure they are clean, inside and out.
  • Wear sunglasses and use the car’s sun visor on sunny days.
  • Reduce your speed as you approach intersections.
  • Watch out for vulnerable road users – pedestrians, bicyclists, motorcyclists.
  • Adjust your travel plans – departure time or route – to avoid the sun’s glare.
  • If you can’t see, safely pull over until you can.

“We urge drivers to follow these common sense precautions,” said Alameda Mayor Marilyn Ezzy Ashcraft. “Take a minute to save a life.”

The City of Alameda’s Vision Zero goal is to end traffic fatalities and severe injuries by 2035. The majority of its street safety improvement work is proactive, and street projects with a total cost of $40 million will be constructed from 2024-2026, including projects on Grand Street, Central Avenue, Clement Avenue, and Clement Avenue/Tilden Way. More information on the City’s Vision Zero plans can be found at the following link: https://www.alamedaca.gov/visionzero.
