I am just posting an update to this whole sham follow-up of a formal complaint that I made last year… Nothing was ever done for me as requested… The lot by lot inspection was never completed… The high fire hazard, prohibited trees remain on my street… There was no real follow-up by the Novato Fire Protection District, even though they were the ones that signed off our Vegetation Management and Fuel Modification Plan many years ago… This process was apparently done to get things moved along and not as a real and valid interest in making our community safe from a major fire hazard… If things had been done the right way, these trees would not still be here… And they are as of this date… I hold the City of Novato and Novato Fire Protection District accountable and totally responsible for this extreme neglect in ensuring our community is as fire safe as humanly possible…

Original Post From Yesterday:
I cannot keep going like this. I have to make it clear one more time! I have so many people looking at my blog now from all over the world.. They are astonished at what I have accomplished so far.. YET, THE MOST IMPORTANT THING STILL HAS NOT OCCURRED!
I am still at a high fire hazard risk here on Captain Nurse Circle. That is because the HOA management DID NOT DO ANYTHING RIGHT about the formal complaint I made against them, and the Novato Fire Protection District did not do anything to enforce it..
So, here is my email.. I know how interesting it is for people to read reality these days. This is the most real you can get:

I am making this clear, that a lot by lot inspection of high fire hazard vegetation was never done as requested by the Novato Fire Marshal. There is still numerous violations of the Meadow Park Vegetation Management and Fuel Modification Plan, Phase One. I am attaching just one picture showing evidence that this complaint was ignored and never dealt with properly…This tree is located behind my building. Look how close it is to the structure. It is not my job to do this inspection, but I am not going to live under the stress of having these bad trees around me and my home…Therefore I am making it very clear one more time…
I am making another complaint and requesting that the Novato Fire Protection District follow-up and ensure that the Plan is being adhered to. There has not been anything done here on Captain Nurse Circle..These very bad high fire hazard non-native trees were all planted long ago without our knowledge or permission… They simply need to be removed, not just trimmed….
And I see now the HOA is talking about planting more vegetation in other parts of the community to “combat the SMART train noise”. What about our Plan? What about Captain Nurse Circle? There has not been any discussion of this at any open board meeting. Clark Blasdell kindly handed me this Plan because he cared and wanted our community to safe. Clark, that still has not happened…I cannot break through this denial and non-caring attitude that persists in this HOA…
This is a disgusting example of COMPLETE AND TOTAL DISREGARD FOR AUTHORITY HERE IN NOVATO! I am thoroughly dismayed at how poorly the Meadow Park HOA management dealt with the complaint and the follow up..There has not been any communication to the Owners about this.. not one word.. My website remains the only source for this information…They are purposely withholding all of this..
It is not a safe or legal way to run an HOA.. The Owners are responsible to know about this Plan and adhere to it. This is not a topic that is to be discussed in a private setting. It needs to be out in the open.. The only way that will happen is by legal enforcement… There has to be enforcement ! Otherwise the HOA management just ignores…
Therefore, I am notifying all involved that this is the result and I am still at a high fire hazard risk here on Captain Nurse Circle because nothing was ever done right, from the beginning of our community or from last August….The wrongs keep going on and on….
Also, the fire extinguisher cabinets were never labeled here on Captain Nurse Circle even though the Fire Marshal recommended it.. That is another problem… These HOA management people are not doing their jobs… I want action and results this time..or a lawsuit is going to happen people, and I mean it…A judge will have no problem agreeing with me…
