The Board of Directors took action on the following items during the February 18, 2020 Open Session Meeting:


  • Introduced new SAMLARC team members, Nicole Thel and Connie Garbutt. Ms. Thel joins the SAMLARC Business Office as its Administrative Assistant, and Ms. Garbutt has joined the Community Services team. Both staff members look forward to serving the SAMLARC community.

  • Approved a contract with Pyro Spectaculars, Inc. to provide the pyrotechnic display at the July 4th Star Spangled Spectacular. Pyro Spectaculars has regularly partnered with SAMLARC to furnish the display, and continues to offer competitive proposal rates for the quality of service and duration of display.

  • As recommended by the Lago Santa Margarita Committee, approved the purchase and installation of five (5) mini aeration diffusors at the Lake. These diffusors will be placed in areas identified as potential breeding areas for aquatic midge flies. The diffusors will increase water flow, oxygenation, and clarity throughout the Lake and reduce the impact of the aquatic midge fly population during the summer months.

  • Approved all consent calendar items, including:

  1. Approval of a contract with Devi Rebel Yoga to offer yoga classes at Central Park beginning in March 2020.

  2. Continuation of Painting by the Lake classes at the Lago Santa Margarita Beach Club, as hosted by Pinot’s Palette of Rancho Santa Margarita.

  3. Approved a work authorization for window repairs at the Beach Club Fiesta Room to restore the clarity of the dual-paned French doors.

  4. Approved a contract with Jolly Jumps and Express Events, as well as Entertaining Events, to provide services at SAMLARC’s large-scale spring and summer events.

  5. Renewal of contract with onsite playground safety evaluation company, Inspector Playground, to ensure SAMLARC’s playgrounds maintain industry standards through quarterly inspections and preventative maintenance.

The SAMLARC Board of Directors is committed to preserving the value, desirability, and attractiveness of all properties within SAMLARC. For the full Open Session Board of Directors Meeting Agenda, as well as the Board Agenda Reports, please click HERE.
