Vehicle Break Ins
There have been some incidents of vehicle break ins reported inside the community recently. Any incidents should be reported to the Huntington Beach Police right away by calling 714-960-8811. The city also has an online reporting page using the link below:
Residents are reminded to secure their property by locking their doors, parking inside their garage and arranging for package delivery while they are home. It is important to notify the police of every occurrence of theft so that they have a record of the incident and can respond appropriately when called. Please remember to secure your property.
New Digital Hangtag
Patrol One is phasing out the traditional hangtag and will be using a digital hangtag based on the license plate number of the vehicle that you have registered with them. In order to make this change, each resident with a current hangtag must fill out a new registration form and email it to Patrol One. They will respond with a code for your new digital hang tag. The form is available to download from the Patrol One website. The link to their website is on this page just to the right. Once on their website, click on “Parking Permits” and then “Download a Permit Application”. Once you enter your street name in the box provided, the form for Seabridge HOA will be available to download. See Community Parking Tab for additional information.
Several residents have notified Management of recent solicitations inside of Seabridge HOA from a mobile dog grooming company that asks if you or your neighbor has a dog. Management has contacted the HBPD non-emergency line and the desk officer said they are getting many calls from residents in Huntington Harbour about these solicitations. As of now, their findings are inconclusive as to whether or not they are doing anything illegal or casing homes. The police do not support the conclusion presented on the social media websites about this being an illegal home casing operation because they have no proof. As of now, they are only violating the civil code for solicitation on private property. If solicited by these individuals, the police suggest that residents call the HBPD non-emergency number and/or tell them to leave the property. The HBPD non-emergency number is 714-960-8811.
Composting Update for Huntington Beach
Please see the information and links below provided by Republic Services and the City of Huntington Beach on their efforts to comply with SB 1383 requiring cities to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by reducing organic waste in landfills.
Republic Services is in the process of negotiating with the city of Huntington Beach for the required services to comply with SB 1383 which requires California cities to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by reducing organic waste disposal. They anticipate transitioning mid-year 2022 from a single dumpster to 3 container service (food waste organics, recyclables, and trash) in a variety of sizes. The type and number of containers will depend on the community and their unique waste needs. The exact dates and details will depend on when they conclude the contract negotiations. Republic will be providing updates and information via the Cities’ social media and web pages.
A change in State law took effect on January 1, 2020 that affects the way that the City’s hauling company, Rainbow/Republic Services, can reuse green waste. Historically, most of the green material collected from Huntington Beach households was ground, sifted, and transported to the landfill, where it was applied to the top of each day’s disposal as a cap layer to seal off odors and pests. However, effective January 1, 2020, this reuse is no longer allowed. The State changed the law to achieve a reduction in greenhouse gas emission by reducing landfill organics.
There has been an increase in coyote activity and sightings in the community lately. The City of Huntington Beach has a webpage with helpful information on coyotes and other wildlife. The California Department of Fish and Wildlife also has a website with good information and a video on the coyote issue in the state covering the rules and guidelines of dealing with coyotes and other wild animals.
Some preventive measures you can take at home:
- Keep pet food indoors and do not leave food of any kind outside at night. Food left out at night will be taken as a welcome invitation by wildlife, and may prompt a future visit.
- Keep cats and small dogs indoors or in the close presence of an adult.
- Remove any fruit which has fallen to the ground.
- Store trash in covered, heavy-duty containers.
- Keep yards free from potential shelter such as thick brush and weeds, and enclose the bottoms of porches and decks.
- Eliminate garbage, debris, lumber piles, etc.
- Check fencing and try to eliminate access points to roof tops.
