Coto de Caza, CA - You suspect there is something wrong when visitors driving by look at you funny. You start to confirm there is something wrong when the obnoxiously loud music you hear is not Malibu rap AND your neighbor’s kid's Mustang is no where to be seen - explains why people were looking at you funny: they think YOU are the one playing the obnoxiously pounding loud drinking music. You know there is something wrong when the same pounding music continues for hours, the lights are off all around the neighborhood, and there does not seem to be anybody home.
So what is going on? Is this a drug scene? Just in case, perhaps it is better to call the Orange County Sheriff’s department (OCSD) so it can investigate, after all, Coto’s $1.7million/year meter maids are probably busy checking RVs that might have exceeded their overnight parking allotment.
Think, think. – perhaps it is better to check yourself, before calling the OCSD just to be sure. After all, it could be the neighbor’s welfare at issue here. Check - neighbor is not home.
Has the Flea Market come to Coto de Caza to follow the subsidized Polo Club and or the Yocham/Varo Dog Park? After all, the local governance continues to subsidize no-residents at the tune of over $3 millon/year. The answer is a probably no. At least in the Orange County’s Flea Market, the music is localized – all you need to do if you find the music obnoxious is walk to the next booth.
What about an early summer concert? After all, the so-called music is louder than at any event ever held at the Irvine Verizon’s Amphitheater.
Skendarian law suit
By now it is 9:30 PM and the annoying music continues to blast but is not from a dues-paying neighbor but from a Coto-subsidized venue: The Coto Gold Club. Clearly the music is “drinking music” and undeniably the spirits are flowing freely. To add insult to injury, it is more than the subsidies in this case, it is the liability: Usually, when DUI-related accidents happen, the liability is usually associated with the association. Just take a peek at the Skendarian lawsuit settlement
Thankfully, the obnoxious music stopped at around 10:00 PM, before a series of bad decisions were activated.
The next day, we asked Coto’s local governance represented by Xochitl Yocham and Bruce Banigan. The question to the local governance is: Did local governance authorize the subsidized organization’s public nuisance and if so, what was the rationale, particularly when the board’s only authority by statue is to repair, replace and maintain. We also asked Ms. Yocham and Mr. Banigan if the board did not provided such authority, what is the board prepared to do?
So far, we have not heard why a subsidized organization is allowed to engage in public nuisance, but a dues-paying resident would be taken to task, no questions asked.
Master Association is subsidizing a public nuisance, and whether the Golf Club and other.
