License Plate Recognition Cameras and Camera Data Management Policy
The special ballot measure for license plate recognition cameras passed with 415 votes in favor of contracting for the service. At the Board Meeting of June 15, 2021, the Board approved moving forward with the Flock Safety contract for installation of cameras. The approximate time to go live with the system is August 15th. The $34.08 per homeowner annual expense will be incorporated into the 2021-22 budget commencing October 1, 2021. We will provide more updates as we get an installation schedule lined up.
The following Camera Data Management Policy provided to the homeowners with the Special Ballot Measure was also approved at the June 15, 2021 meeting. The policy explains how and to whom data collected will be disseminated.
OFFICIAL NOTICE OF PROPOSED EASEMENT PLANTING GUIDELINES
Nellie Gail Ranch Owners Association’s proposed Easement Planting Guidelines have been drafted to facilitate Architectural Review Committee review and approval of homeowner planting in equestrian easements. Current guidelines restrict homeowners from implementing landscape improvements within the easements on their property. These guidelines would allow for planting that would further enhance trail aesthetics and the hiking and riding experience.
The purpose of this notice is to offer Nellie Gail Ranch Members an opportunity to provide comments on the new guidelines and to propose changes as may be desired. In accordance with California Civil Code section 4360, which requires the Association to provide the Members with a minimum of twenty eight (28) days general notice of proposed rule changes.
The Board invites your comments on these proposed guidelines. Member input will be considered by the Board at its open session meeting set for Tuesday, July 20, 2021. The meeting will be held at 7:30 p.m. at the Association Clubhouse.
Comments may be submitted via email to firstname.lastname@example.org, may be delivered to the meeting, or may be mailed to 25211 Empty Saddle Drive, Laguna Hills, CA 92653.
Trails & Safety Committee Volunteer Opportunity
We are actively seeking volunteers to serve on the Trails & Safety Committee. With 25 miles of amazing trails we benefit from a volunteer network of active trail users. Volunteers meet as needed to recommend trail improvements and discuss ongoing maintenance. The committee is currently working to collaborate with the city to improve equestrian crossing safety. We would love to have someone who has a strong interest in this important issue. If you have an interest in serving on the Committee please complete the attached application and return to email@example.com.

The Equestrian Center Clubhouse interior work has been completed with all new tile floor, fresh paint, a remodeled kitchen and all new restroom fixtures and partitions. These reserve projects were funded by boarding and trainer fees to the benefit of the Nellie Gail Ranch Equestrian Center and all Nellie Gail Ranch homeowners.
Speed enforcement has been active this week on Nellie Gail Road in proximity to the Equestrian Center as patrol officers have been writing tickets for vehicles speeding up and down the hill. We notify you of this not to suggest you look out for the patrol officers to avoid tickets, but to encourage you and all family members, to always drive safely at the posted speed limits on Nellie Gail Road and all streets within Nellie Gail.
Attendees of the Wine Tasting & Horse Show last Saturday were treated to more than just great wine! They also enjoyed the ambiance of the Nellie Gail Ranch Equestrian Center and an exhibition by some of our world class riders, trainers and horses. Bree Kenney started things off with a James Bond themed musical freestyle on Dash. Grand Prix Dressage rider and USDF Gold Medalist Cassie Cherry Nolte followed with a patriotic themed freestyle performance on Whizzkid. To close out the horse show, Grand Prix Jumper Lane Clarke put on a high jumping show on Queen who was flawless over impressive jump heights. For many attending the wine tasting it was their first visit to the Equestrian Center and an opportunity to see just how special our Equestrian Community is.
