I have had numerous requests to continue the News and Register to Vote sites. I will as long as they remain relevant and members continue to access the sites. We have had an extraordinarily high number of visits to the news site with nearly 20,000 in total since we started in March.
We are now covering stories around the Ranch from water conservation alerts to fire preparedness guidelines. The most interesting, however, is our coverage of the Association taking on the issues with our internet speeds and cellular reception.
At the July 28th meeting, the Association laid out the issues the Covenant faces; low-density population, outdated infrastructure, and zoning permits. They recapped previous talks with internet service providers and why past proposals didn’t work.
Tech experts discussed how different technologies can improve the Ranch and what it takes for implementation. However, the most future-proof solutions may require significant planning and groundwork.
Founder of ServiceNow Fred Luddy emphasized that something needs to be done in the Ranch:

Voter registration increased by more than 20 percent leading up to the past HOA election. This is a great accomplishment, but we can’t stop there. Our goal is to reach 100 percent in the Covenant! The more we participate, the better we can make Rancho Santa Fe.
