As a follow up to my recent pieces about the battle over tree cutting in University Park, that neighborhood’s homeowners association board has a scheduled meeting tonight. The tree controversy will be discussed at the meeting, but no voting will take place. In fact, California civil code prevents the board from discussing or taking actions on items not on the published agenda, which puts the previous vote to remove the trees (cited in my Sept. 29th post) onto shaky legal ground as it was not on the agenda for that meeting:
UP homeowners I have spoken to are optimistic that the tree cutting will at least be delayed until it can be discussed and voted on at the scheduled board meeting in November.
UPDATE: Email from a UP homeowner:
The board agreed to hold off on the tree removal until a membership meeting to talk about a master plan. So the trees may need to come down but if they do there should be assurance that they are really hazardous. They also voted to have an attorney advice them about updating some things, like CC and R’s, etc.
