The annual rate is now up to $4950.00 per year or $5382.00 when you add in the non-descretionary costs for Garbage and Sewer that used to be included in the annual rate. As the following table shows, over the past 8 years, the annual rate has increased from $3425.00 to $5382.00 or > 57% :!:

So are we getting our monies worth?? In my opinion we still are, but Cal-Am needs to realize they cannot keep up the average 6.5% per year increases indefinitely. Or at least not when the average inflation rate is only 2%. Maybe they need to start adding some services like 24/7 security and/or a gate on the entrance, improved maintenance, weed control during the off season, etc. etc.

That said, when thinking about how much we pay, we have to remember all the benefits we get. Happy hours, great staff, great activities, 2 pools, tennis courts, pickleball courts, activity rooms (with more to come), exercise room, best dog parks around, great staff, large sites .... too much to list. :)
