Welcome to Rancho Solano

 
ANNUAL ELECTION OF DIRECTORS
Our Association’s annual election of Directors is coming up very soon. We are looking for candidates to serve on the Board and to lead our Association into the future. If you get elected, you can stay on top of the activities within our community and the decisions!
 
How Can You Become a Candidate?
First, you will need a Board Application. This is available here. You may also pick up an Application at the Kiosk. Your Board Application must be received by the Kelly Company no later than 5:00 p.m. on August 24, 2020. 
 
Directors are elected by mailed ballots using a double envelope system to preserve the privacy of each member’s vote.  All candidates who let us know they are interested in serving on the Board, and who are qualified under the terms of our Association Bylaws and our Voting and Election Rules, will have their names included on the ballot. At this time there are currently three Board seats that are up for reelection. In the event the number of candidates is less than or equal to the number of seats up for reelection, the candidates may be deemed elected via appointment by the Board of Directors.
 
If you have any questions or if you would like to obtain the nomination form in order to run for the Board of Directors, feel free to contact the Association’s Community Manager, Priscilla Marin at 707-447-7797 or via email at priscilla@thekellycompany.com. 
 
We hope you will consider getting involved in the Association by running for the Board.  If you have any questions about becoming a candidate or about the election process, you can find more information in the Association’s Bylaws and in the Voting and Election rules. 
 
Thank you,
Board of Directors

 
MOVIE NIGHT CANCELLED
Due to continued restrictions because of the Covid-19 pandemic, the August Movie Night in the Park has been cancelled. The Park Committee looks forward to offering events once restrictions have been lifted and are looking for creative solutions for our community to come together in the mean time. 
 
INFORMATION ON SIGNAGE
The Board of Directors want to wish all our graduates congratulations! We understand that this year is different for you. Covid-19 has made public gatherings of graduation, and other important family and social issues impossible. Your signs and posters are a wonderful way to celebrate your life experiences—all we ask, is that you follow our CC&Rs and limit your sign or poster to one per household. For more information, please see details below on what is permitted. Thank you.
 
4.03        Signs.  No sign of any kind shall be displayed to the public view on or from any Lot or any portion of the Project without the Approval of the Association, except as follows:

RANCHO SOLANO’S THANKSGIVING IN JUNE FOOD DRIVE FEATURED RECORD-BREAKING GENEROSITY
Our fabulous food drive team would like to thank neighbors and friends for their giving. They collected 2,939 pounds of food and $567 in monetary donations as of June 24. Amazing!
 
They report that “our community’s generous support multiplies the Food Bank’s efforts to feed the hungry right here in Fairfield. Once again, it’s a wonderful thing to be a part of a community that gives. Every little bit helps and together we have made a big difference.”
 
Thank you to our team of volunteers and especially Dorothy Flynn. For those who want to get further involved you can get involved with the food bank at: Food Bank of Contra Costa & Solano or make a donation at:Rancho Solano Food Drive Donations
 
For more information, contact Dorothy Flynn at 925-250-0670
 
 
CATTLE GATES AND ACCESS TO OPEN SPACE
Residents of Rancho Solano are entering the green gates (designed to safely enclose cattle) for recreational purposes and failing to secure the gates. Cows that graze our hills are getting out into the streets of our neighborhood, causing the City of Fairfield to review the matter. Please securely close gates behind you at ALL times. Please also make sure children are made aware of this responsibility. Homeowners who fail to secure gates may be subject to liability for damages caused by the cows or injury to the cows.
 
Park Guidelines During Shelter-in-Place
Residents who use the Rancho Solano park are asked to observe current health guidelines and only use the park while keeping a six foot distance from each other. It is not feasible to disinfect the play structure, so residents should avoid using the structure and only use open space where they can safely maintain their distance.
 
Kelly Company Operations During Shelter-in-Place
To comply with the shelter-in-place mandate, the Kelly Company is closed to the public, but is available to residents via e-mail and by phone at 707-447-7797 during business hours.  
 
Temporary Change to Parking Procedures
On March 26, at a Special Meeting, prompted in part by the Covid-19 virus outbreak, the Board of Directors voted to approve a temporary change to the HOA's parking procedures to alleviate concerns caused by an increase in family members sheltered together in the community. The changes are primarily focused on Parking Permits, which are still issued from the Rancho Solano Kiosk, as followed:
 
Obtain a parking pass from security per the regular process and display it on the vehicle's dash;
Passes obtained during California's shelter-in-place order will not be counted against a resident's annual allotment of passes;
A pass will now be valid for up to 30 days. If the shelter-in-place order is still in place after 30 days, another 30 day pass can be obtained.
Please Note: Cars parked in the street during the hours of 2-5 a.m. that do not have a pass will continue to be ticketed per the regular policy.
 
We understand that normal routines of homeowners have been disrupted by the Coronavirus outbreak and we hope this change will allow us to continue to track unfamiliar vehicles in our community, while at the same time support families presented with parking challenges, as we are all working through this together.
