GOLF COURSE SET TO REOPEN
The Rancho Solano Golf Course is set to reopen Saturday, May 2. Please discontinue recreational use of the cart path. Thank you to the City of Fairfield for allowing residents to use the cart path for exercise while the course has been closed, and thank you to residents for respecting the course.
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.
When Accessing or Exiting Open Space, Please Secure Cattle Gates Behind You
It is crucial that everyone accessing open space areas within the community MAKE SURE that fence gates are SECURELY closed behind them. We are having a large problem with people not securing gates and allowing cattle to exit the hillsides. This obviously risks safety and can cause property damage, and it is a serious problem, which has also created significant challenges for our rancher. In some cases, the gates are being left open due to carelessness and in other cases the gates have been damaged due to vandalism. Our open spaces are one of the most valued aspects of our community, and it's very important that we access them while also keeping the cattle secure.
