i'm sending this email for the person who his/her car was damaged by a cart left outside ...
this is the lady who i have seen many times uses the stores shopping carts and leave them in front of gate. I have seen her many many times. I belive she doesn't undrestand English at all. does anybody undrestand her language? could you please explain to her that leaving carts outside gate puts everybody's car in danger of being hit by it. and possibly getting sued by car owners.

Dear Worthy Drive Resident that is hasseling the woman on the corner of Van Buren and Worthy Drive, please stop! She is our greatest alli! Why would you pick on someone that could potentially be a huge help for our community? Who cares if her trash cans sit out front! She sees everything that goes on, in front of our complex...including, intruders using our facilities, transients that pass through, troublemakers that hang out in the front...Leave the poor old woman ALONE! We have enough problems of our own, here!

Hi, Could you please post my comment in the website?
I have had an issue with UPS recently that I would like to share with you. Recently UPS driver does not come inside community and looks like is not interested in knocking our doors to deliver our packages. The new driver just stop behind the gate and put a sticker on the gate. I have called UPS and filed couple complaints for the Delivery Center and also the lazy driver already. Drivers must put the notice sticker on your door not on the gates.  If you have had same problem please call UPS and file a complaint.

thanks!

I don’t understand the yearly increase of our dues too. Are we going to get better services next year comparing to this year or not?  I think we really need to clean up the board and the companies are providing us their bad services otherwise someday, not that far, we will face a $500 monthly due for the same horrible condition we are living now. My mom and dad are thinking to get rid of our home and move to another community.

What happens if the entire community refuses to pay the HOA dues that they increased AGAIN? It's getting a little absurd! Just because the board can't balance a budget, we all have to suffer. I know a lot of people that live in nicer communitys than us, and they pay a lot less in HOA dues...

That truck is parked in our guest parking full of trash 3-4 days this week. I have seen it many times. I think Patrol One officers need eye glasses... If they don’t have any obligations to come and check the parking, it’s another sad story.


....................................................................................................

Is there anybody in our BOD or managing company being bribed by Patrol-One?  It sounds like they are irresponsible at maximum level and we try our best to keep them as our security company! Something is fishy here!

About the toilet pic I would say, please print that photo and send it to the neighbor with a note:  dear neighbor! I guess you live in California!

The landscaping has not been improved at all. We are paying too much and we are being abused.  I don’t think with this board of directors we will see any progress in future. About the snake story I went to low’s to buy something for it, I was told that snakes in this area are not poisonous. So don’t worry people!

Webmaster,
There is no provision in our enforcement rules that states a truck can not have debris in the bed. If the vehicle is not moving and is stored, I can hotlist the information to my officers to start monitoring the vehicle. A license plate of the vehicle would be great, since I can not see it in the pictures posted.

Noisy Neighbor!

Hi
My family had a problem recently and I would like to share it with everybody.
from 4-5 months ago, one of our neighbors start listening to loud _____ music in early mornings. We had woken up by their annoying loud music every morning for almost 4 months. I was sure our lame BOD cannot do anything about it.(no need to mention our BOD even is not able to fine those stupid people who wash their cars in parking!) I tried to communicate with them but seemed like they didn’t understand my point so I called cops couple weeks ago and problem has been solved since then.
If you have a noisy neighbor, I think that’s the only way to solve it!

I just thought I would share with everybody that our 2009 budget says we pay $1.74 a month per home for pest control. I went to the board meeting and expressed that my home, as well as, our community is infested with spiders, wasps, ants, rodents, ect... And I wanted to know what was going to be done to get this problem under control. Since the HOA is responsible for the exterior of the building I think it was a fair question. However I was told nothing will be done because the money is used for termites, and vacant properties. Sounds like a bunch of crap to me! Can we please get somebody on the board willing to take responsibility for the problems on our community, and stop feeding us lines of B.S.

I'm sorry but paint doesn't make our community clean! How about those nasty trash cans we have to walk by everyday! Painting was a waste of money! I won't even get started with the repairs in this place, but believe me there are plenty.
This is NOT a safe community! Cars are constantly being broken into, strangers walk through our community like it's a parking lot, and I have personally chased out a peeping tom!
Whoever is under the impression we are living in a clean and safe community is in for a rude awakening...don't let your guard down.

Hi
I don’t live in your community. My home is in street #...... I saw your community website and I would like to say that I have seen some idiotic things in your community.
1. Drivers stop with engines on, in the street in front of your gate waiting for something or picking up their mails. Whenever I want to make a U-turn I have a hard time. Dahhhhh ... 
2. The dirty water comes out of your parking lot always makes the street dirty. Don’t you have a regulation for that?

I hope you post my comment!
Thanks!

Really, we don't have more important things to spend money on? The painting is fine the way it is! Why don't we worry about the broken gates, termite infestation, and security? Who the hell is making these calls? Of course it's our board of directors! We need to get these i... off the board!!!!



.....................................................................................................

Fellow Residents,

The awnings and eaves of our homes are crumbling to pieces because of termites. Cars are broken into on a monthly basis. We can't keep intruders out because our gates are always broken. And now the BOD has decided to spend our dues on painting. I don't know about anybody else, but I personally feel ripped off! I have lived here for over 6 years, and every year they have raised the dues, and it's in the works to raise them again. The serious problems are not being addressed, and the BOD spends our dues frivolously; and then they say we are over budget. Newsflash, we need new board members!

And another thing...the clubhouse. The doors are so badley damaged they have to be chain locked. Not to mention all the broken chairs, and rotting wood inside. Tell me again why we are wasting money on painting?

I have already mentioned on this website, the rules and regulations for Worthy Drive state, children need to be supervised at all times....so now I have a question for the parents who continue to disregard this rule.  Do you know how a child is abducted? Well I'll tell you, LACK OF SUPERVISION!  It is estimated, 800,000 children are abducted each year, and 85,000 of those children are abducted by people they don't know. Several times I have seen and confronted strangers within our community. Do not be fooled by a false sense of security in our community. Do not become a victim, keep an eye on your children at all times.

Dear A,
You are attacking the wrong person! I DO NOT wash my car in this community! You clearly did not understand the essence of the complaint. The whole idea is that the BOD takes it upon themselves to fine those who are in violation, when they, themselves, are doing the same thing. I am not authorized to post any names on this site, but you can be reassured that is undoubtly two specific board members that wash their cars twice a week here.

I saw a post on the website from ME. Could you please post my opinion for the issue of washing cars in the parking? Thank you!

Dear ME.
As I understand you have received a fine for washing your car in parking. I’m so glad that you have been fined. I think washing cars in parking is an ugly act which some shameless people do. If they can not be educated by courtesy letters, they must be fined. Just think about it. You wash your car and you make whole parking and street dirty. I don’t think that’s smart.
As you said it is prohibited. I don’t understand why you are whining then. For a better, cleaner community, we must follow the rules no matter others do or not. I would love to see a picture of those BOD members who you claimed they wash their cars in the parking. Then I would know who to vote next time.

I truly believe it is our boards responsiblity to fix any broken gate immediatley! We moved into this community with the reassurance of a gated community. With the gates constantly being broken, and not fixed, this has to fall under some kind of "slum-association" law; or some type of false advertisement to make one feel safe, when in actuality we have become victims of several crimes.

Just so I have record next time I go to a board meeting...how many residents received a letter or have been fined for washing their car within the community? I would first like to say, it does say in the rules and regulations car washing is forbidden, HOWEVER, two of our board members wash their cars on a weekly basis. It’s a crime this double standard is amidst our very own board members. It's a complete and utter hypocracy that they enforce rules that they, themselves, don't follow.

i think u brought up some good questions. Patrol-One is one of the low performance companies that has been contracted and as I understand there is no accountability for them. I sometimes wonder who in our bod supports these contractors. is anybody making money here or we are being abused just bcz there is a sleepy bod in charge?

I totally undrestand why a guest has asked one of the homeowners this: “is this Dirty Drive or Worthy Drive?”

I think patrol-one doesn’t know what the meaning of heard-out /head-in is. i attached an educational photo. Hope it helps!

Dear ME.

The point is who the management in our community is. If you mean board is our management, omg! It took them couple years to figure out the landscaping company was abusing us. How are they gonna respond to such a phone call??

If you mean the TSG is our management, god really helps us!! I have called them at 11 am and their phone system says:”thanks for calling tsg property management! this is an AFTER HOUR service time…” if 11 am is after hour service time, somebody please tell me when their regular working time is. There was nobody to answer my questions or request. I have left some messages. I have never received an answer so far. I think TSG is a one man company who is apparently on vacation 80% of year. He/She probably just shows up to collect our money on 30th of each month and disapears. Just take a look at the quality of services we get! With no question, it’s the lowest ever you can imagine!

My dear neighbors,
On several occasions a Peeping Tom has been found peering into windows. The description that was given to police is as follows:
Male
Hispanic
25-35
5'9"
Black Hooded Sweatshirt
Very Short Black Hair
Little, if any, facial hair
This man is known to frequent in the morning and late evening. If you see anything suspicious please contact police, or take him out yourself...he ran from me. Yell, scream and do whatever it takes to let this guy know we are not afraid! Hopefully he'll be caught soon!
I would like to reiterate keeping the gates closed and locked! Had the far left gate been locked this man would have been caught by several men in the community. However, since the lock is broke he ran right out. Do not allow people to follow you in, and as a  neighbor keep watch for strangers in the community.

Maybe our board should consider purchasing some signs like this one. I don't know if it would help, but I'm sure they don't cost a lot; and if it keeps one stranger from entering, I think it's well worth it...

I think we should sue Patrol-One. Their statement is totally illegal and irresponsible. What they have said clearly is we don’t do what we suppose to do because our dear officers have been threatened by violators. For god sake, we have hired you to do the job! It’s a shame that our Board of directors are in sleeping mode! I think our BOD is also legally responsible.

I would like to thank W for bringing up the issue of patrol-one. I called them a year ago for something and as I remember they sent an officer right away (I mean 40 minutes+). What has been changed since then? I think their answer obviously shows that we are not getting any service from them. We are paying them $41 per day. What do we get? Nothing! They already admitted that we get nothing. Even their service is secret to prevent us from knowing what they do. It’s a shame that our dear BOD members have been aware of that.

Do they check the fire lanes? No! And as they said bluntly, even if their officer sees such a violation would not even give a verbal notice. That’s enough for any smart BOD member to decide to fire them and hire another company.

I hope we’ll never have an emergency in our community. If someday something happens, I will be the first one to open a lawsuit for parties involved.

To Whom It May Concern,
My answers to the complaint / questions posted on your website are in blue below.
Regards,
Patrol One Staff

Dear Webmaster!

I have a question. I saw a car was parked in the middle of drive way in parking for almost an hour on March 17 about 4:00 pm . I called Patrol-One but the Operator simply refused to do anything. The operator simply with a smile said: “it’s not one of our responsibilities to take any action!” When I asked her how many times per day your officers check our community, I was told “we can not tell you!” and I was told that they are located in Santa Ana. The car was parked on red zone for almost an hour. I called Westminster Police Department and they sent a patrol to take care of it finally. This statement above is a blatant lye! I have the phone call recorded and will be more then happy to play it for anyone (including the board) to prove that this clearly shows how homeowners interpret things. As I will explain below, my operator did state that we can not give out our patrol inspection times, which is a directive given to us from the board. The caller asked if we were in Santa Ana, and my operator explained that just because we are in Santa Ana doesn't mean that we do not have an officer close to the property. My operator also explained that if the association wants us to enforce the fire lane violation 24-hours a day, that we must get this directive from the board.

My questions are:

1. as I read in 2009 report we are being charged $15000/ year by Patrol-One. Honestly! If they can not provide us these simple security assurances why we need them? We are not on-site 24-hours a day, so a vehicle sitting in a fire lane for an hour and not getting towed doesn't surprise me. Clearly, if the association wanted to spend the money to have an officer on-site 24-7, I would be more then willing to provide it to them.

2. Even if they wanted to send an officer to our community it would take more than 45 minutes. Is that logic that we hired this lazy company? We are a patrol company, which means we have other associations we patrol. Depending on traffic, and time of day, response times do vary. The board is well aware of our response times, and have been appreciative of them in the past. They have even commented on how much better they are from any other company you have ever had in the past.

3. I saw a car today (march 18) was parked in front of community head-out all day…now is almost 3:00pm and there is not any notice ticket on its window. Aren’t we getting ripped off by Patrol-One? I guess gas price is still very high and they don’t want to drive here.  I doubt it if they even check out community once a day!  What do you mean by "head out" all day? I have never heard that term before and would like to answer your question. Gas prices have nothing to do with when and how we patrol the community. We are not ripping off the association, and are following all terms of our contract with them.

4. I read some of the comments about Patrol-One on your website and I’m just wondering why with many complains we still stick with them for our security. Hello!! They are more concern about their security than ours! As they said” ….although many times in the past, this has lead to verbal altercations against my officers, not to mention threats….” The complaints have not been justified, therefore we are doing what is expected out of us. It would appear to me that the people writing negative items about Patrol One have nothing better to do, and may have motive behind their comments (possibly being towed in the past). 

5. Is that a secret that how many times our community is being checked by Patrol-One officers? What a big secret!! I guess the answer is 0. The association has asked that we do not release this information, nor the times that we patrol. If you go to a board meeting and ask the board these questions, they may answer them for you, but I can't release that information. Our contract is with the association, therefore if you really want an answer to the question, I would suggest you go to the board and see if they can provide it to you.

And I would like to say something to those people who don’t understand the meaning of red zone. Dear neighbors! Stopping and Parking on fire lanes puts 96 homes at risk includes your own beautiful home.

.....................................................................................................

W, I agree! We just wasted more money putting skid strips down on the sidewalks. Who comes up with this stuff? I think it's a shame five individuals on the board speak for all the homes in our community. The saddess part is when you attend the board meetings and make your voice heard, the existing board members do what they want anyways. That's why I stopped waisting my breath and time attending every month. The only way we can make a difference is electing somebody else for their positions.

From what I've been told Patrol One can only enforce what our board members have decided is a valid violation, and fire lanes isn't one of them.

And one more thing,
Seriously! Who cares if rain water stays on the walk ways!  Don’t we have more important things to do in this dirty community? Who has decided that we need to hire a group of experts to fix those? How many days /year are rainy days? Hellooooo we are in California!!! As I understand .... people are in charge of our community.

.....................................................................................................

Dear Webmaster!

I have a question. I saw a car was parked in the middle of drive way in parking for almost an hour on March 17 about 4:00 pm . I called Patrol-One but the Operator simply refused to do anything. The operator simply with a smile said: “it’s not one of our responsibilities to take any action!” When I asked her how many times per day your officers check our community, I was told “we can not tell you!” and I was told that they are located in Santa Ana. The car was parked on red zone for almost an hour. I called Westminster Police Department and they sent a patrol to take care of it finally.

My questions are:

1. as I read in 2009 report we are being charged $15000/ year by Patrol-One. Honestly! If they can not provide us these simple security assurances why we need them?

2. Even if they wanted to send an officer to our community it would take more than 45 minutes. Is that logic that we hired this lazy company?

3. I saw a car today (march 18) was parked in front of community head-out all day…now is almost 3:00pm and there is not any notice ticket on its window. Aren’t we getting ripped off by Patrol-One? I guess gas price is still very high and they don’t want to drive here.  I doubt it if they even check out community once a day!

4. I read some of the comments about Patrol-One on your website and I’m just wondering why with many complains we still stick with them for our security. Hello!! They are more concern about their security than ours! As they said” ….although many times in the past, this has lead to verbal altercations against my officers, not to mention threats….”

5. Is that a secret that how many times our community is being checked by Patrol-One officers? What a big secret!! I guess the answer is 0.

And I would like to say something to those people who don’t understand the meaning of red zone. Dear neighbors! Stopping and Parking on fire lanes puts 96 homes at risk includes your own beautiful home.

I attached some photos.
Your neighbor,
W.

Hi
Don't we have the ugliest entrance gate in Orange County? It's embarressing!

.....................................................................................................

Is that true that we don't have any fine for people keep washing their cars in parking? Are we living in a jungle?? I think that's an important regulation for dear BOD members to pass in their next meeting and a good job for hard working Patrol-One officers to implement.
I think we people must report violators to Patrol-One right away.
so please report it to Patrol-One to keep our community cleaner!
J.

.....................................................................................................

A,
I'm not sure if you fully understand the concept of rules and regulations. They are put in place for a reason. As far as car washing goes, it's a hazard to the environment, and it's a shame you don't see that. The cat dishes that are left out with food in them attract rodents, and I don't know about you, but yuck! As far as pictures being taken, where were the childrens guardians? The way I see it, if the children were being supervised by their guardian the issue of reckless bike riding and picture taking wouldn't be an issue. Believe you me I have a life. I'm just tired of everyone crying over spilt milk, and not taking reasponsibility for their actions. If your speeding down the highway and you don't get caught, does it make it ok? Everyone that keeps complaining about getting fined is only complaining because they got caught. Everybody should be following the Worthy Drive Regulations, and that would be that.

Patrol One,
I think it's hilarious you are trying to justify one of your officers parking in a fire lane. City, private property, whatever you want to call it, it's ILLEGAL. In no way can that picture be taken out of context; what you see is what you get...illegal!

I'm glad to hear someone agreeing with fines. It's important to have the fines to regulate, and keep violators from turning our complex into the ghetto. For the people who don't understand the rules, and don't care if they get fined shouldn't have moved into the community. There are reasons for rules like car washing, and cat dishes...the drainage from car washing is hazardous to the environment, which we should ALL take care of, and if you don't care then shame on you...cat dishes outside attract all kinds of rodents. I've seen rats, possums, and believe it or not racoons too. It is vile and disgusting people want to justify leaving cat food out so our community is full of rodents. Give me a break, be respectful of your neighbors, and most importantly the rules that have been set in place for a reason. Nobody is out to get anybody we just want a nice place to live.

Webmaster,
In speaking to my officer, he admitted to parking in the area marked as a fire lane outside of the gates. This area is a city street and although he parked in this area, he was checking the pedestrian gate which is about 15 feet in front of the vehicle. Our officers are supposed to check this gate on each inspection to make sure that it is secure so non-residents and vendors can not walk into the property. As you can see from the photo, the driver side window is down meaning that the officer is not far from the vehicle.

Clearly the person who posted this photo did not fully read my entry from an earlier posting and has taken things out of context. 

Regards,
Patrol One Support

Dear A!

The parking is a public place. According to city laws washing cars in streets and parking is illegal. There is a fine for violators. You might not know that washing cars releases oil and chemicals to environment and those chemicals and soap will end up in the ocean and eventually will kill fishes and other animals there. We are responsible to keep our environment clean and safe. That’s a very important thing for our next generation. If you don’t know about the danger of washing cars in streets and parking please google it. You’ll find tons of good articles about it.

About saving money, those people who are saving money by washing their cars in parking and also those who don’t use proper trash bags are making our community very ugly in my opinion.

About the fines, I’m totally agree with S.
Thank you!
G.

.....................................................................................................

I think those fines that N is complaining about are very important to keep our community organized and clean and prevent it to change to a big ugly trash can.

S.

.....................................................................................................

I think people should get a life and stop complaining about things like washing cars? Why does it concern you that they are saving money instead of spending $10+ to get it washed. Its just like N said about the dumb fines and how the place looks, there is no use in fining because they are not going to stop, and it won't make the place look any worse. If you want the place to look better why not paint the ugly black gaits a nice color that matches the place ( green, tan ext.)     And I think I know who "MD" is talking about with the BOD person =) 
" The person can also supervise kids who are riding bikes recklessly inside community...
Great idea!
G." "My neighbor’s dog was barking around mid night last night. I guess some people do not understand that a dog barking in mid night for 30-40 minutes is annoying. If you have a dog, please make sure it does not bark in the middle of night.

A." "I went to a board meeting once to get clarification on bikes being ridden within our community. I remember reading it wasn't allowed. I was never given a straight answer. It seems like hazzard to me. Even with the children riding, they are not supervised. Parents, please watch your children. I've attached pictures of children creating skid marks in front of my unit. I don't appreciate it.

About washing cars I want to say that I personally reported our dear neighbor (parking#_) to BOD couple times last year. I think we must have a Fine for that violation. As I undrestand we don't. I think they gave him a notice or two. I'm so glad somebody finally took his photo and it's posted here. WOW! I love this website!

About BOD I want to let people know that when I reported him, I was asked a very dumb question by a lady who was apparently a BOD member. the question was: "why is washing car in parking bad?"
Don't we deserve more educated people in BOD?
MD.

Hi, this is for all the people who keep giving dumb, unnecessary fines to me and my neighbors. What is wrong with cat food bowls outside the house? I got a 5$ fine from that. I hope other people did too because there are many other people with cat bowls outside their house. Also, they are complaining that you cant hang bikes from the roof because it looks bad? I don't think it really makes a differences honestly, and I'm not going to move it nor the cat food. My neighbor has been given a warning about lights that she can't hang?  All of these things are really dumb and I think shouldn't be given fines for.

Best regards,

Hello worthydr.com webmaster!
A question: Can we fire our BOD and elect other people to do the job. Is there any law about it? I read this website everyweek. everybody uses myspace. can we have a myspace page for our community?
s.

.....................................................................................................

I suggest we announce a day for cleaning of our community. As I understand, our board of directors doesn’t have any interest or motivation in cleaning and improving things. As you probably noticed they painted the carports right before board election on November 19. They must have done that long time ago. That could be translated “taking advantage of our money to keep their seats”. I hope it’s not.  Mismanagement in our community is in the highest level imaginable. I hope some of the BOD members have learned how to do a better job after being there for 6 years.

Hey! Has anybody noticed that the parking lights are not enough? Especially our guest parking area….I feel it’s dangerous.

Have a Safe and Happy Holidays Everybody!

Does everybody receive his monthly $250 association fee 2 days before its due date or it’s just me? gosh! If this TSG (managing company) can not manage sending us a simple letter on time, I don’t put any hope on them to improve anything in our community.

What kind of contract our BOD has signed with Patrol-One that does not cover giving a verbal notice to people who park on FIRELINES? Can you publish our contract with them? We are paying $14K/year to them. Don't we have the right to know what they suppose to do?

What the heck is this all about...didn't they just raise our dues, and now we can't even use the facilities!



.....................................................................................................

Speaking of facilities...the board takes a fee out of our dues to use for the upkeep of the clubhouse, and yet they still charge $100 dollars to rent it. Recently I rented the clubhouse, and it was infested with termites which I cleaned up. I'm sick and tired of being nickled and dime'd around here.



.....................................................................................................

If you haven't noticed, every single fire hydrant and lamp post are covered in bird droppings.





.....................................................................................................

Carports
I just thougt I would let everyone know...I went to a board meeting recently and overheard that the renovation of the carports cost us $60,000 dollars. I'm not sure about everybody else, but I spend less than 10% of my time in my carport, and I believe the money could have been used more wisely. The extent of the termite infestation in all the carports could have been prevented if the board would've used the dues that are set aside for pest control. I'm not so sure that spraying or tenting the carports might have been a more cost effecient solution.

The details you are posting on this site of a Sex Offender living in the area of Worthy Community is not accurate,  20 years ago a man was drunk, walked out of his bedroom in his boxer shorts to use the bathroom, where he rented a room in a house, there was 12 year old girl living in that house and now this one accident puts this man on a sex offender web site for the rest of his life  You should research the details before your spread the wrong word, I went to the house and asked questions, no reason to scare the children anywhere for one night of shots and beers 20 years ago.  The courts already ruined this man life, don't help them with the injustice. He did not rape, molest, spy on or abuse any child.    Most of us have had a night of reqret after a few glasses of wine, I am sure, including the Web Master of this site.
There are many situations in world where people are wrongly accused, marked for life for another person not taken responsibility for their actions, People have been taken to court, arrested and forced to relocated from Worthy Drive because of irresponsible, angry and very sad individuals whom do not respect the rules, think they are above right and wrong and do not take responsibility for their actions.  People Lie and Manipulate the truth to win.   We lost a great resident here at Worthy just that way, this person is missed every day by many residents who live here.
The Justice system does not always work, and lies are spoken - Please do not do Good People more Harm by repeating the injustice and standing by liers  Let's Ask that everyone Own their own actions, no more excuses, that means resident, the board, the police, Security and our World.  This could be a better place

I think it's hilarious patrol one stated in their comment below how the "main" problem for parking in the fire lane was homeowners who stop and get their mail. When in fact I see patrol one parked there all the time. They can't enforce an issue if they too are contributing to the problem.

I liked those youtube clips you put up. It was so cute!!  Wonderful website!!

My brother lives in a gated community in Newport Beach. Two year ago there was a scandal. Apparently they found out one of their BOD members had been receiving money from a contractor…Short story… the company, the person, the BOD and home owners have multiple lawsuits against each other…

Since we have a big mismanagement in our community, I hope we never have such a problem here. I think our BOD has closed its eyes on contractors and their low quality services for a very long time. It’s been claimed by them that they are doing voluntary services. Ok! They don’t get paid but their mismanagement has cost us big money in last years. I think we needed a cleaning up in Nov 19 and I hope in future we see a difference.

Hope you publish my comment!

There is a reason it has been called FIRE LINE.

Webmaster,
  The main problem is that we can not enforce the fire lane violation when the owner of the vehicle is present. Yes, we can tell the resident that this is not allowed, although many times in the past, this has lead to verbal altercations against my officers, not to mention threats. While we are trained for this, my officer figured that it would be best to just ensure the vehicle was being moved by the owner. Stopping in the fire lane to grab your mail is not serious and if there was an emergency on the property, they could move the vehicle quickly to ensure the vehicle was not in the way of the fire department / ambulance. Not to mention that this fire lane is outside of the property and not something that we can enforce.

hi
   My brother in law is a policeman. I asked him about stopping cars on Fire lines. He said: no matter your car is on or off, you are present or not, you will get a ticket of about $300 and it will stay in your record for a very long time. If you are not present, your car will be towed. Even if you park inside the gate on fire lines, your car will get towed and you will get the ticket too.
He said people can call police if they see a car parked on fire lines.

I have a suggestion for landscaping and cleaning problem. We have been charged around $40,000 in 2007 for just landscaping. ok? We easily can hire a person 8 hours/day with $25000/ year. We definitely will have better, cleaner community.

Hi everybody!

I got a letter from TSG about the election for new members of BOD today. There are 2 candidates for the position and as I understand both are same old members. Our community has been the same same for many years. I think we need new faces in our BOD.
Why don’t we have a monthly meeting in club house for home owners? I went to BOD meeting once and the way they treat a person with a new idea is not appropriate. They have turned board meeting to a prosecution session. One by one.  I think we need to have round tables to discuss. I personally don’t know many of ppl in this community. I have voted for people before. Honestly I don’t know who to vote for. Do you?
thnaks for reading my opinion!

Hola a todos
Conseguí una carta de TSG sobre la elección para los nuevos miembros de la asociación actual. Hay 2 candidatos para la posición y segun tengo entiendo  ambos son los mismos viejos miembros . Nuestra comunidad ha sido la misma por  muchos años. Pienso que necesitamos nuevas caras en nuestro BOD. Piensen dos veces antes de la votar.

¿Por qué no tenemos una reunión mensual en la casa club para propietarios de casa? Fui a la reunion BOD una vez y el modo que ellos tratan a una persona con una nueva idea no es apropiado. Ellos han girado la reunión de la junta directiva a una sesión de procesamiento. Uno por uno. Pienso que tenemos que tener mesas redondas para hablar. Personalmente no conozco mucha gente en esta comunidad. He votado por gente antes. Francamente no sé  a favor de quien votar. ¿Ustedes si?

I think your pictures say it all!  If one trash can wasn't enough, the board decided to put another one out there; and now there's even more trash and debris. Great idea...Not!

Dear Neighbors
We have trash cans outside for junk mails. please use it properly. as I undrestand some people need education even for being able to use a trash can.
this is the meaning of trash can in dictionary:
trash can: ( noun) : a bin that holds rubbish until it is collected [syn: ashcan,garbage can, wastebin, ashbin, dustbin, trash barrel, trash bin]

1. Please put your junk mails inside the trash can, not on top of it.

2. I have seen some empty cups and cans around gate. please do not leave your coffee cups on the walls. trash can is 5 feet away. use the trash can.
I attached some embarrassing pictures.

Dear H and other Worthy residents,

The gates should be shut and locked regardless! Not only is it a privledge to live in a gated community, but it's also a plus for the buyer and the seller. All residents, adult or child, should be using a key or remote to enter the premises. The whole point of a gated community is to keep intruders out! So if someone is jumping the fence or tampering with the locks, that issue needs to be addressed! If nobody cares whether the gates are open, shut, locked, or unlocked; we should stop repairing them and wasting our dues. As it stands right now, the gates must be kept shut and locked; and residents should question anybody without a key or remote... In fact the police should be called for any trespassers. This is the only way intruders will stay out!

My neighbor’s dog was barking around mid night last night. I guess some people do not understand that a dog barking in mid night for 30-40 minutes is annoying. If you have a dog, please make sure it does not bark in the middle of night.
Thank you!

About locking gates and issue of sex offenders living around our community I want to say that our gates can be opened easily. I have seen kids open it without any key in 2 seconds so closing/locking the gates is not an important thing.

I’ve moved to this community a while ago and I’m kind of shocked by seeing too many flies here. I have lived for more than 30 years in orange county and I had never seen such big flies that I’m seeing here everyday. I want to mention something.

My dear neighbors:

  1. If you have a pet, please don’t leave it in your back yard. You must clean your back yard. If you don’t, it will attract flies and it will smell horribly. About 2 weeks ago I found out my neighbor’s back yard stank horribly. I called police.
  2. If your trash bag is full, please don’t leave it in your back yard. You must dump it in trash bins. If you don’t, it will attract flies and it will smell horribly.
  3. I can not think of any other reason that a home stinks. O maybe somebody has died in that home. So if your neighbor’s home stinks please call police.

.....................................................................................................

Listen up people,

We have locked gates for a reason. Parents be advised _ _ _ _ worthy drive is a registered sex offender KEEP THE GATES SHUT and LOCKED!!!!!!

Hello Worthy Residents,
Unbeknownst to me our clubhouse rental fee has increased from 50 to 100 dollars.  I'm sad to say but the place is a dump! Every single chair is either damaged or completley useless. The floors and windows are disgusting, and the outdated furniture, and patio tables are unexceptable! Sure I looked the other way when the rental fee was 50 dollars, but come on, 100 dollars, that's ludricous!  The maintance of the clubhouse is taken from our dues already, so please enlighten me, why do we have a rental fee?
M.

Me movi  a esta comunidad menos de 6 meses y estoy sorprendido ro ver muchas moscas aquí. He vivido durante más de 30 años en el condado de orange  y  nunca había visto moscas tan grandes como las que  veo aquí diario. Quiero mencionar algo.

Mis queridos vecinos:

Si tienen una mascota, porfavor no las dejen en patio trasero. Deben de limpiar su patio.  Hace aproximadamente 2 semanas averigüé que la yarda trasera de mi vecino apestaba horriblemente. Estuve a punto de llamar a la policia.

Si su bolsa de basura esta llena, por favor no la deje en el patio trasero. Deben de tirarlo en los botes de basura.  Si no lo hacen, esto atraera moscas y olera horrible.

No puedo pensar en ninguna otra razón que una casa que apesta.  O tal vez alguien ha muerto en esa casa. Asi que si  la casa de su vecino apesta por favor llame a la policía.

Dear Fellow Neighbors,
Please be aware of your surroundings! Did you know second hand cigarette smoke can cause SIDS...Sudden Infant Death Syndrome? That's right a baby goes to sleep as usual, and never wakes up; simply because he or she was exposed to second hand cigarette smoke! Please be courteous of your neighbors, especially ones with infants and children, and smoke elsewhere! You may think it's nobodys business, and you have the right to smoke anywhere you please, but keep in mind your actions can seriously impact an infants life!

Hi
thanks for the beautiful website. i think patrol one does not know that parking spaces outside and parking spaces inside our comunity are different. i want to thank the neighbor who brought that up. I have seen venders wondering inside knocking doors to sell things. i think people have to undrestand buying those things is not safe. those fruits are not tested and can be dangerous for health. If we stop buying from them they will stop knocking our doors. I want to know if i call patrol one, how fast they are going to be here to take care of something. as i read their website, they are located in Santa Ana. so for any phone call about those venders, it's going to take 20-30 minutes for Patrol one to get to Worthy Drive. I think that's too farrrr. why has we hired the Patrol One?

Hello

I couldn’t figure out who you are by reading this website but man! You really rock! About the trash bin, I think it smells horribly just because some of us don’t use good standard trash bags. If everybody uses those bags, it will never attract the flies and also it will never smells. I live far away from trash bins but I feel so sorry for those of us who their homes are located around it. I want to ask everybody to start using those bags and help to improve the condition of living for all.

¡Hola!
¡Yo no podía entender quién era usted por leer este sitio web, pero hombre! ¡Usted es super!!! Sobre el bote de basura, pienso que eso huele horrible  porque algunos de nosotros no usamos buenas bosas de basura. Si cada uno usa esas bolsas, eso nunca atraeria las moscas y tampoco oleria.  Vivo lejos de los botes de basura pero compadezco a quiénes viven alrededor de eso. Quiero pedir a todos que comencemos a usar esas bolsas y ayudar a mejorar la condicion de vida de todos.

hello
About the patrol one and the parking rules I want to say no wonder the services we receive from companies like landscaping and Patrol One is too low. They even don’t know what our association’s rules are. Our Bored of Directors is a golf club which obviously don’t have the ability to manage and improve anything or even let those companies know what the rules are.
I got the same notice six months ago. When I called them and told them I drive my car every single day, they said oooppppppssssss it must have been a mistake. Sorry!

Hola
I want to know who is behind this genius landscape design. Could they ever design an uglier piece of art?
I’m totally agree with most of my dear neighbors about the low quality of landscaping and cleaning and management in our community.  For example I didn’t see one single flower being planted in whole 2007 and so far in 2008 and we are being charged almost $40,000 per year! WOW!!!


and the neighbor in the right side of our gate has a YARD SALE every weekend. Their garbage is always visible. It's very disturbing specially when ppl stop by to shop and they mostly park their cars in front of our gate. why don't we use the third gate? I don't know if anybody has reported this issue to BOD but honestly does it really need to be reported? It's been almost 6 months or so. I attached some photos for those BOD members who hasn't seen it yet.
thank you!

Hello I got a citation from you today and I want to tell you that either way your officer is blind or he has gotten wrong info from unreliable sources or I don't know maybe you guys have a contract with towing companies and are making money by towing residents’ cars. 1. Please read our parking rules carefully at this address: http://worthydr.com/parking.html. If you have any questions contact management at this# 949.841.0555. 2. My car has been parked in the open parking area for less than 3 days. The funny thing is I was out of state couple months ago for 5 weeks, I’m just wondering why my car didn't get towed that time. As your officer probably was noticed my car has a TAG so it means I can park in open spaces. At the end I want to tell you that parking is for storing cars. Isn’t it? I have 2 cars and logically I don't drive 2 cars everyday. I store (park) my car in the parking. You really made me laugh by your NOTICE which says: "this car appears to be stored or unmoved...." And one more thing that I want to let you know that your operator was not aware of our 14 days policy of parking without moving cars. When I called earlier today she told me that the rule is 72 hours. You guys are fantastic. You make new rules for the jobs you have to do. At least make your officers read the rules for god sake!
Thanks for making me laugh today!
M.

Your association has given us certain parking rules to enforce on your property. With that being said, your vehicle was cited for stored because it was observed as not moving for more than 24-hours, thus the reason for the citation. Assuming your vehicle does move prior to the 72-hours from the citation was written, then you will not be towed. This property does not have a 14-day parking rule for storing vehicles, and I would suggest that you speak to your Property Manager or Board of Directors to ensure you are fully aware of the associations parking rules.
Also, having a hangtag visible does not protect you from this violation, so the comment about my officer being blind is not relevant. In regards to us making money off of towing vehicles, this is completely false and not true.
Please let me know if there is anything else that I can answer for you.
Regards,
Director of Operations 
Patrol One

P.S. I have copied the Property Manager George Gustave so he is aware of our conversation.

Hello
thanks for your email.
I have an official letter from association that the rule is 14 days. If you are not aware of it, contact them to receive it. It is pretty astonishing that you don't have a copy of it. I guess that's part of your job to follow the rules. Isn't it?
Your email sounds like your officers are checking the parking area and other areas 24 times per day. I love to see that someday. so I'm just wondering where are they when people are inside the gate knocking our doors to sell us orange and onion.(once a week)  and where are they when some people are washing and repairing their cars in the parking area?  Where are they when people park on fire lines? (Everyday)
I sent the email to worthydr.com to be published for other residents. I'm not sure anybody else's car has been towed by your new self made rule. So I'll wait to see if people have the same problem with you then I'll decide what to do. And I still think you guys are making money by towing our cars. You interpreted our current parking rule to a new one. (24hrs) congratulation!

Thanks again for your email.

If the association has a rule of 14-days, we would be more than happy to enforce that rule, assuming they provide us with that information. I have BCC'd the Property Manager and a Board Member on this email so they can advise us if the rules have changed. No rule is "self made" as you claim, and we enforce the parking rules that your association asks us too.
In regards to not catching the vendors that are knocking on your door, and the firelane violations that you see, the association has contracted with my company to patrol the property at certain times frames. As you know, unless we were on the property 24-hours per day, we can not catch everything that happens with random patrols of the property.

alquilé una casa en esta comunidad hace un rato y quiero decir que nunca he vivido en un lugar tan sucio. Estoy de acuerdo con la mayor parte de los comentarios aquí sobre la calidad baja de la jardineria y limpieza. si quiero llamar este lugar yo lo llamaría " el paseo sucio " 
He visto gente estacionada sobre la zona roja en la puerta de la calle. ¿ellos realmente entienden que la zona roja es para el departamento de bomberos no para estacionarnos o revisar nuestros buzones?

he visto gente estacioarse aqui y revisar sus buzones.  Yo se que la policia puede suspender sus licencias de manejo por seis meses.

My dear neighbor washes his cars and makes a mess in parking area every week. His parking # is _.  I tried to let the board of directors know about the issue couple times in last six months but as I understand they can not educate this gentleman and he doesn’t look smart enough to understand the info on this website about the hazards of washing cars in streets and parking areas.
I would like to know:
1. Why BOD has not reported this gentleman as a violator to city or any other responsible authority?
2. Is this part of PATROL ONE responsibilities?  We are paying big bucks to them and I have never seen them in parking or anywhere. Can they cite a person for washing a car in parking area?
3. Can this website be multi languages?
4. I know somebody fell down in a wet parking lot in Newport Beach three years ago and the person sued the owner of building and got $385,000. my question is:  If someday, somebody somehow gets hurt in our wet parking area, are we going to pay damages from our funds?

To answer the questions my dear neighbors have been raised about the amount of money we have been charged for lanscaping, i found a document couple days ago about it. In 2007 we have been charged $36,400 for landscaping. it means we are paing $758.33 weekly. can anybody get a quote from a lanscaping company? i would like to see if somebody will do a better job. we need to say bye bye to this company i believe. i also ahve a question: we have been charged $15,175 for pool in 2007. is that related to landscaping company too? does anybody know?

There is an insulting word on the east wall (parking). It says “no trespassing”.

I’m really insulted by seeing that word on our community's wall. Aren’t you?

I went to a board meeting once to get clarification on bikes being ridden within our community. I remember reading it wasn't allowed. I was never given a straight answer. It seems like hazzard to me.

Hello
Dear Webmaster!
Good god! Who cleans our community? I’m paying $250 per month. Am I supposed to clean our community and parking area too? A friend of mine came to visit me last week and after he saw the trashes and dirt everywhere inside and outside of the gate. He asked me “is this worthy drive or dirty drive?” I don’t know how much of our money is being donated to a landscaping company. Who is responsible? I have gone to his house. He lives in beach blvd one block before PCH. Believe it or not he is paying $89 per month. It is exceptionally clean and beautiful. For god sake! We are paying 3 times and just take a look what a dirty area we have.
Thanks for the opportunity and hope you publish my email!

Hi
I appreciate your effort to make this website for us. I want to mention an important thing about the trash can. I have seen people dump everything inside trash can without trash bag. I believe that’s the main reason for horrible stinky smell. I would like to ask people to spend $10/ year to buy the standard trash bags and protect the environment and our beautiful community. I have seen many communities give those bags free to people. I guess if we buy it from the wholesalers online we can save money on it and also save the neighbors living close to trash cans.

I want to know specifically what issues has been talked about in board meetings. Isn’t that suppose to be public? I have never received any letter about it. Aren’t they suppose to let public know about the issues they have solved?
Where can I get those info?
Is it going to be published here in future?
 Thanks!

Hi
About the landscaping I would like to say even idiots can do a better job than the current landscaping company. I don’t want to accuse anybody but what I guess is somebody is making money in the middle or the landscaping company is abusing us big time. Either one is embarrassing.
Thank you for the website. We really needed it!
