Notice About Park Facilities
There have been a number of incidents where park users are putting large trash items down the park Port-a-Potty, which is causing damage, and if we can not stop it, impacts our ability to contract with a vendor and offer restroom services. Please supervise children while at the park, and make sure the facilities are being used properly and not damaged. If residents notice potential vandalism happening at the park, please alert Security. Thank you.

Please remember that any home improvement planned on the exterior of your homes or yards (front, back or side) other than routine maintenance must be approved by the Landscape-Architectural Review Committee. Examples include, but are not limited to landscaping, painting, window replacement, sheds, fencing that does not meet guidelines, solar installations, etc.
Please visit the members pages for CC&R Rules and Guidelines and the Application Form(s)
that must be submitted. Work completed without approval is a violation of the HOA rules and guidelines and may result in a "Work Without Approval" letter and, possibly, a hearing before the Board, fines and/or a requirement that you correct the work at your expense.
Update on Fire Efforts
The HOA Board of Directors has undertaken several measures over the past several months to address fire-readiness. Among those efforts are:
The HOA approved a new, second annual session of defensible perimeter weed abatement that adds to the early summer abatement, to include one in early Fall;
After reviewing bids and studying information on the benefits of livestock grazing and fire protection, approved a bid for renewal of the current cattle grazing program for weed abatement. Included in that arrangement is the maintenance of fire break paths in the open space hills;
Taken on clearing and maintenance of certain open space areas within Rancho Solano that were previously, but no longer, maintained by the City.
