Community Development

Anteater Street Lights

            In response to resident requests, ICHA is looking into masks to fit inside the new conversion induction lighting to deflect the light down, so resident homes off Anteater are not affected

Fertilizer Notification

            In response to resident requests, gardeners will be posting flags to indicate where  fertilizer has been used in landscaping

Broken Dog Park Locks and Swimming Pool Locks will be replaced

SCE Update

            Some homes in University Hills have volunteered to take part in an SCE research study for energy conservation.  The city of Irvine as a whole will be    integrating smart meters to track energy use.

Architectural Reviews

  • External maintenance of homes and gardens

            Jane Laning, ICHA President presented concerns by residents about lack of   exterior maintenance of some University Hills homes. The board discussed several approaches to advising residents.  Jane will return to the HRB and ICHA board with possible approaches consistent with University Hills policies and agreements.

  • Street Sweeping and On-Street Parking

                The 2nd and 4th Thursdays in the month streets are routinely swept. Cars  parked on the street are preventing proper street sweeping.  Street sweeping helps prevent run-off of debris into Back Bay and the ocean.
