Welcome to Villa Balboa

Coral Tree Removals

On May 24th, another coral tree fell within the community. This is the second coral tree to fall within the last 12 months at Villa Balboa (in addition to the coral tree that fell from Versailles property onto Nice Lane). Fortunately, no one was injured, but there was property damage both times. The original plan, as you know, was to remove 1/8th of the coral trees per year and replace them as needed. That unfortunately can no longer be the path forward. 

After review with the Landscape Company, Legal and the Insurance Carrier, with a heavy heart, the remaining 39 coral trees on the property must be removed as soon as is feasible as they have become an immediate safety hazard and a liability within the community. The Association is already at risk of not being renewed with the insurance carrier due to the first tree falling and other insurance claims filed in recent years. The coral trees will be removed starting on June 15th and will take one to two weeks to remove. Once they are removed, the Association will evaluate the areas for replacement. The exact trees that will replace the coral trees have not been selected but will be soon as the goal is to select a tree or trees that won’t decline after 30-35 years as experienced with the coral trees. 

We know this is upsetting for a lot of homeowners within the community, as it is for the Board of Directors and Landscape Committee, but the safety of the community residents, their property and guests must be the first priority.

Pool, Gym and Tennis Court Closure Update

The Board of Directors is continuing to monitor the situation with COVID-19 and the reopening of the pool, gym and tennis court. We will be sending out an e-mail blast to the community and posting it in the directories when certain amenities reopen.

Community Update

The Association is continuing to monitor the Shelter in Place order. During this time, the Pools, Tennis Court and Clubhouse areas will remain closed. The 950 and 270 Cagney interior remodel project has been placed on hold until the order has been lifted as the work is done in doors and does not fall under the essential guidelines. The road project has been postponed as well until further notice due to a backlog of projects.
