Update on Elections Materials

As Tahoe Donner property owners, you have now received ballot materials for the board of directors election. Unfortunately, the ballot was mistakenly sealed in the ballot envelope. A replacement envelope is being mailed to all owners. This concern has been reviewed by our election committee, accountancy firm and inspector of elections. If you have already sent in your ballot, with the ballot envelope sealed or unsealed, be assured that your vote will still be counted.

If you haven’t yet sent in your ballot, here are the steps for voting:

1)      Retrieve the election materials you previously received.

2)      Mark your ballot with the candidate of your choice.

3)      Place the ballot in the ballot envelope and seal it.
Make no marks on the ballot envelope.

4)      Place the ballot envelope in the business reply envelope.

5)      Be sure to sign the business reply envelope before mailing it.

If you have any questions regarding how to proceed, Bonnie Watkins at (530) 587-9431 is happy to help. We are sorry for this inconvenience. We urge you to vote, as we need to reach a quorum of qualified voters in order to have a valid election.

Solar Panel Information

We would like to remind all Tahoe Donner homeowners who are looking into adding solar panels about the rules.  The solar panels we are seeing come in two forms, laying flat against the roof or siding and solar panels placed on high mounted steel racking systems and metal pans. If the solar panels you are looking to purchase have the high mounted racking system, please remember that the racking steel/metal system must be painted to match the adjacent material (roof or siding) along with any conduit added. No shiny metal is allowed.

A Neighbor Notification conducted by our office is required prior to review & approval. Also, you must have a permit through our office to add solar panels, which can be done over the counter Monday through Friday. The applications will be reviewed by one member of the Architectural Standards Committee every Wednesday. This type of permit is only good for 6 months. You can view the Solar Panels Change to Existing Structure Application for more information.
