The CZ Master Association Landscaping Propaganda at Work - spending $5,000,000.00/year on the trivial many!

The CZ Master Association Landscaping Propaganda at Work - spending $5,000,000.00/year on the trivial many!

March 16, 2007

Taking a page form the CZ master association’s public safety committee with a focus on “visibility”, rather than substance, the landscaping committee likewise has announced a focus on the trivial many at the expense of the vital few:

The February 2006 issue of CotoVoice quotes the CZ master association board of directors as saying "CZ Master is very fortunate to have a dedicated group of owners who serve on the landscaping committee". The article does not say that with the board’s approval, the committee passed, at associations cost, changes to the association rules, which in essence institutionalize the use of discriminatory practices in the dispensing of the $5,000,000/year or so landscaping budget. The board never responded to our comments prior to spending precious association resources on useless rule changes. We suggested instead that the board focuses on implementing changes to the electoral process consistent with the spirit of SB-61 – do away with a corrupt delegate system and cumulative voting. Again, the board failed to respond.

Just in time for the 2007 elections, the CZ master association board has announced that the Saturday landscaping walkthroughs documented in the expensive Rules Changes are now obsolete. Instead, district delegates must request a walkthrough! Just what we had recommended before, but it took one year to sink in!

The CZ master association propaganda does not stop here. The March 16, 2007 issue of the s Orange County Register quotes Scott Brown, Orange County Fire Authority’s Battalion Chief for the area: “Brown commended the work done by Coto’s landscape committee, consultants and gardeners in maintaining a good weed abatement program around Coto de Caza” – the question not asked are:

For the $5,000.000.00/year used by the association for landscaping maintenance, what percentage goes to “good weed abatement programs” around Coto de de Caza?

How much for “free” $45,000.00 trees?

How much for consultants who bring in the Arizona look to Coto de Came Drive?

How much for consultants who bring in the River Rock look to Coto de Camel Drive, using rocks “native to the area”?
