ANNEXATION OF TESORO TRAILS
At the Board of Directors Meeting held February 12, 2013, the Board of Directors took action to approve annexation of the Tesoro Trails project into SAMLARC provided that the developer, D.R. Horton, pay a fee of $100,000 (upon successful annexation) toward the amenities already developed by SAMLARC and all costs associated with annexation, recognizing that the annexation requires a vote of the membership. The Board considered the benefits the Tesoro Trails project will bring to SAMLARC including the payment of the annexation fee and the additional income stream resulting from the additional dues from the new owners.
D.R. Horton is developing the Tesoro Trails project in the city of Rancho Santa Margarita which includes the construction of 66 townhomes on the site that was the Morasha Jewish School located on Banderas and Alma Aldea. Although Tesoro Trails has its own limited amenities, as well as its own sub-maintenance corporation, D.R. Horton felt it beneficial to both the development and SAMLARC to have the development annexed into SAMLARC.
By adopting the resolution approving annexation, the Board determined that given today’s SAMLARC assessment of $55.20 monthly, annexation will generate an additional $43,718 annually to SAMLARC from the new owners. The Board also received assurances that by annexing Tesoro Trails into SAMLARC, SAMLARC will benefit by maintaining architectural and covenant control over the new units, in addition to ongoing revenue from the new Tesoro Trails homeowners.
D.R. Horton mailed a letter to every SAMLARC homeowner last month seeking approval to annex the Tesoro Trails community into SAMLARC. During the first part of September, every SAMLARC homeowner received a second letter and ballot to vote yes or no for the annexation.
For questions regarding the annexation and balloting process, contact Barbara Murakami, Vice President of Forward Planning for D.R. Horton at 951-739-5443, or SAMLARC Community Executive Officer Candice Fullenkamp at 949-709-0015.
