Office of the Press Secretary
The White House

Our Nation grieves with those affected by the tragic shooting at the Virginia Beach Municipal Center in Virginia Beach, Virginia. Americans unite in praying for God to comfort the injured and heal the wounded. May God be with the victims and bring aid and comfort to their families and friends. As a mark of solemn respect for the victims of the terrible act of violence perpetrated on May 31, 2019, by the authority vested in me as President of the United States by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, I hereby order that the flag of the United States shall be flown at half-staff at the White House and upon all public buildings and grounds, at all military posts and naval stations, and on all naval vessels of the Federal Government in the District of Columbia and throughout the United States and its Territories and possessions until sunset, June 4, 2019. I also direct that the flag shall be flown at half-staff for the same length of time at all United States embassies, legations, consular offices, and other facilities abroad, including all military facilities and naval vessels and stations.

IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this first day of June, in the year of our Lord two thousand nineteen, and of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred forty-third.

Fly the United States Flag at Half-Staff on Wednesday, May 15, 2019 in Honor of Peace Officers Memorial Day

Proclamation on Peace Officers Memorial Day and Police Week, 2019

On Peace Officers Memorial Day and throughout Police Week, we express our unending gratitude to our Nation's law enforcement officers.  Those brave men and women selflessly confront danger to protect our families and defend our communities.  We also honor those in blue who have been killed or disabled in the line of duty.  We are especially mindful of the tremendous sacrifices of the 106 heroes who laid down their lives last year while protecting their communities.

My Administration is working on several fronts to enhance the health and safety of our Nation's law enforcement officers.  The Department of Justice (DOJ) continues to promote initiatives that provide funding for bulletproof vests, active shooter training, the National Blue Alert System, and other programs that bolster the physical and mental health of those who protect us.  We are making surplus military equipment available to law enforcement agencies.  We are implementing the Law Enforcement Mental Health and Wellness Act, which I signed into law last year, to improve the delivery of and access to mental health and wellness services.  And when tragedy does strike, DOJ's Public Safety Officers' Benefits Program stands ready and able to assist the families of the fallen and catastrophically injured.

The best way we can support law enforcement is to reduce violence crime.  My Administration has secured $50 million in funding for one of the most effective crime prevention strategies in America, the Project Safe Neighborhoods initiative.  This results-based and data-proven initiative is reducing violent crime nationwide by leveraging local law enforcement and community partnerships, along with strategic enforcement efforts, to arrest the most violent criminals in the most violent locations.  Through the combined efforts of all levels of law enforcement, violent crime in our country is falling.

Our Nation's law enforcement officers serve with courage, dedication, and strength.  They fearlessly enforce our laws, even at the risk of personal peril, safeguarding our property, our liberty, and our lives.  We owe them, and their families, our full and enduring support.

By a joint resolution approved October 1, 1962, as amended (76 Stat. 676), and by Public Law 103-322, as amended (36 U.S.C. 136-137), the President has been authorized and requested to designate May 15 of each year as "Peace Officers Memorial Day" and the week in which it falls as "Police Week."

NOW, THEREFORE, I, DONALD J. TRUMP, President of the United States of America, do hereby proclaim May 15, 2019, as Peace Officers Memorial Day and May 12 through May 18, 2019, as Police Week.  In humble appreciation of our hardworking law enforcement officers, Melania and I will light the White House in blue on May 15.  I call upon all Americans to observe Peace Officers Memorial Day and Police Week with appropriate ceremonies and activities.  I also call on the Governors of the States and Territories and officials of other areas subject to the jurisdiction of the United States, to direct that the flag be flown at half-staff on Peace Officers Memorial Day.  I further encourage all Americans to display the flag from their homes and businesses on that day.

IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this tenth day of May, in the year of our Lord two thousand nineteen, and of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and forty-third.

Proposed Rule Amendments

Dear Homeowner:

As you know, the Board of Directors (“Board”) for the Association is responsible for the management, operation and maintenance of our community, as well as the conduct of residents and their families, guests and invitees while in our community. To facilitate the management and operation of our community, the Board has been given the power to adopt reasonable rules and regulations relating to the operation and use of the Common Area, Exclusive Use Common Area and Units. California Civil Code section 4350 et seq. and Article 3, Section 3.7.1 of the Association’s CC&Rs grants the Board this power.

The Board has determined that amendments should be made to the Facilities & Services Advisory Committee (FSAC) Charter, Rule 2.12.4 of the Rules & Regulations relating to estate sales, and Rule 2.3 of the Rules & Regulations relating to renting or leasing a residence. The Board also determined that it is in the best interests of the community to establish a Lifestyles Advisory Committee and to entirely restate the Enforcement Policy and Schedule of Monetary Penalties. Copies of the verbatim proposed amendments to the FSAC Charter, Rule 2.12.4, Rule 2.3 are posted with this notice as well as the proposed Lifestyles Advisory Committee Charter and the proposed restated Enforcement Policy and Schedule of Monetary Penalties.

The purpose of the proposed amendment to the FSAC Charter is to change the maximum number of committee members from seven (7) to eleven (11). The intended effect of this proposed amendment will be that more people may participate as members of the FSAC committee.

The purpose and intended effect of the proposed amendment to Rule 2.12.4 is to expand the number of days an estate, probate or liquidation sale can be held in the community at a residence from one day to two days as long as a two-day sale is approved by HOA management in writing. An HOA permit to hold an estate, probate or liquidation sale will need to be issued before holding either a one-day or two-day sale.

The purposes of the proposed amendments to Rule 2.3 are to eliminate a conflict between the Rule 2.3 and CC&Rs Section 2.6.2 regarding the minimum rental period, to provide a definition of “responsible vacation rental program administrator” as this term is referenced in CC&Rs Section 2.6.2.

The purposes and intended effects of the proposed restated Enforcement Policy and Schedule of Monetary Penalties are (1) to define the procedure by which Owners may be found to be in violation of the Association’s governing documents as well as to ensure that Owners charged with allegedly violating the governing documents receive “due process” and (2) to more effectively deter governing document violations.

The purpose and intended effect of the proposed Lifestyles Advisory Committee Charter is the creation of such a committee as described in the proposed charter.

Please note, California Civil Code (“Code”) section 4360 grants homeowners a twenty (28) day period to review and comment on most rules and rule amendments prior to their adoption. In accordance with section 4360, please provide the Board with any comments regarding this proposed rule you would like it to consider prior to voting on whether to adopt the same.

All homeowner comments made in writing must be received by the Association’s General Manager Richard Smetana at, no later than 4:00pm. on June 12, 2019. Alternatively, you may submit your comments directly to the Board at the beginning of the Board Meeting whereat the Board will consider and vote on this matter. This Board Meeting is scheduled for June 24, 2019 at 2:00pm.

Please note that if adopted by the Board, these rules will immediately go into effect.

Once the Board votes on this matter, the Board will notify all homeowners of the outcome of the vote.

Thank you in advance for taking the time to read this letter and for providing the Board with your feedback.
