Dear Gold Ridge Property Owners,
I’d like to take the opportunity to introduce myself for those that don’t know me. My name is Brandon Miller and I live here in Gold Ridge with my wife and two children (11 and 14). I am a licensed Civil Engineer and work for Caltrans currently in the Geotech Department down in Sacramento. I’ve been with Caltrans for over 18 years and as a Resident Engineer/Structure Rep I worked on a lot of projects near here, including our new Sly Park Undercrossing. I enjoy the outdoors (I assume we all do living here!) and am active in El Dorado Search and Rescue. I enjoy hiking, biking, boating, 4 wheeling, and am always open to trying new things.
I’d like to thank our past president, Carol Steinbrecher, for her hard work and all of her accomplishments as president of the association. I hope to take what she has implemented and continue on the path of getting more people involved and just making our community a better place.
Currently there are multiple ways the GRFPOA is trying to communicate to the property owners:
– Facebook social media pages (https://www.facebook.com/groups/GRFCChat/ and https://www.facebook.com/GRFPOA/)
– Nextdoor private social network (https://nextdoor.com/)
– Gold Ridge Web Site (http://goldridge.org/)
– Mailchimp (this email is being sent from mail chimp, basically just a way for the GRFPOA to send out announcements but not a full mailing list for users to chat on..)
I’m only in my second month but I’ve already learned a lot on how the association works and have been approached with a lot of great ideas for our association. Right now NONE of the above methods reach 100% of the property owners, our only way to reach everyone is by snail mail which is not only slow but costs us all money. I hope that at a minimum we can get email addresses for at least the majority of property owners (not even a third are on this list now). I don’t intend to send mailings more than once or twice a month. Let us know if you have any ideas that could help!
I hope you’ll get involved, and I look forward to hearing your feedback (via email at firstname.lastname@example.org, or one of the social media outlets posted above).
President, Gold Ridge Property Owners Association
