Proposed rule prohibiting hard surfaced flooring

448 Bellflower Blvd #201

Long Beach, California 90814

 September 22, 2008

 To:       Board of Directors

            StoneyBrook Villas Home Owners Association

 From:  Mitch Mason, owner


I have the following questions regarding the proposed rule.

 I purchased my unit (Building #3, unit 201) in July 2005 and hard surface flooring was already installed in the unit.  While I appreciate and understand the noise concerns of residents residing below units with such flooring, I was not made aware of any moratorium regarding flooring at the time of my purchase.

  1. Will units with hard surface flooring be allowed to be "grandfathered" in and allowed an exception to the proposed rule?

     2. If not, by what date must units with hard surfaced flooring comply with the proposed rule?

     3. How does the Board of Directors plan to expect compliance if this is so decided?

     4. Will the hard surface flooring need to be removed from the unit prior to installing with carpeting and sound-deadening under-layment, or can the carpeting and under-layment be installed over the existing hard surface floor?

Thank you for your consideration of these questions.  I will be unable to attend the Board of Directors meeting on October 15, 2008 so would appreciate a written response from the Secretary of the Board.
