Announcement: Keep Your Animals At Bay


Announcement

Announcement of PICHOA-2 regarding astray animals roaming around the subdivision. This is a perennial problem of homeowners since some homeowners are not responsible enough to tend to their pets.

I have witnessed one accident three months ago involving a bicycle rider who hit the eletric post after he was harassed by a dog.

Residents who love to hike and jog around the subdivision are prevented to do their usual exercise routines for fear of being attacked by unkept pet dogs.

There is also domestic animals of residents in the neighboring sitios who greased their cows and goats on the lawn of unoccupied units.

2009 Flood in Citihomes


Everyone needs to know this bit of information. Pag-ibig Citihomes Subdivision was submerged in floodwater in the last week of November in 2009.

Phase 2 was greatly affected by the deluge. Reasons that Phase 2 Homeowners then initiated the organization and registration of the association.

Phase 3 was under construction during the deluge.

The first problem or issue the interim association raised to the developer, Johndorf Ventures Corporation (JVC), was the flood problem.

This move prompted JVC to initially construct a re-channeling of the Bunkakalan River. The river travers along the side of Phases 2 and 3 on the northeast.

Today, the issue is still unresolved and homeowners are worried that another flood will hit the subdivision.

It is a continuing clamor of the homeowners that JVC must provide efficient drainage and flood control systems in the subdivision. The Homeowners Associations are vigilant and continually knocking the doors of the developer for the implementation of the flood control system.

Below are some clips showing what happened in that fateful day of November 2009.

Still Personal


You might be wondering if this site, blog, on-line journal or whatever we call this is an official web address of the Pag-ibig Citihomes Phase 2 Homeowners’ Association (PICHOA-2). Honestly, it is not. This is a personal blog of a person who happens to be a member of the current Board of Directors of PICHOA-2.

Being personal, however, does not mean we can’t discuss things, concerns, etc that affects directly or indirectly our subdivision and the people that dwell within it. Being personal does not prohibit us to publish documents that are official and public records i.e. Financial Reports, Board Resolutions, Policies, Rules and Regulations, Minutes of the Meeting that are adopted by the PICHOA-2.

PICHOA-2, particularly the people delegated to manage its businesses, which are the elected directors of the Association’s Board, should be bounded by the principle of prudence, transparency and accountability. It is one of their duties to rightfully and speedily inform the General Assembly (members of PICHOA-2) of any or of all developments, in whatever possible, convenient and cost-effective means.

The successes of PICHOA-2 do not solely rest on the resolves of the elected officials. Of course, they are expected to lead the organization in whatever undertakings the General Membership would desire. Members of PICHOA-2 are also expected to make good of their commitments for the organization and take part in all the programs presently being or would be implemented by the group.

During the days of the organization of PICHOA-2, we have dreamt of a coming up with a Newsletter for Phase 2 homeowners. This was some sort of a literary and news organ. The main purpose, actually, was to have a means for keeping the member-homeowners well-informed. Well-informed members are the greatest assets PICHOA-2 can ever have.

The idea remains but was not concretized due to financial constraints. We don’t have the money to sustain the circulation of the conceptualized PICHOA-2 paper. We can possible print the master copy but distribution expense is costly. Moreover, the P60.00 monthly dues are too meager to keep the PICHOA-2 floating. Allocating the publication and distribution expenses from this is not a good idea at all. Nonetheless, membership and association fees were collected by Johndorf Ventures Corporation (JVC) and were not yet remitted to PICHOA-2.

I personally thought having an on-line journal, where members of my community can share ideas, opinions, etc about the happenings in the community, would be wiser. I also thought that the Board can make use of the site to keep PICHOA-2 members abreast with the latest happenings without spending a single centavo. Hence, the birth of this site.

I would like to emphasize that there are NO promulgations or resolutions passed by PICHOA-2 Board or General Assembly adopting this site as the official on-line venue for PICHOA-2. Irregardless if this will be adopted or not, this will remain to exist for the very purpose of informing the public and make the Board accountable and transparent in all its dealings.
