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.”

FOURTH of JULY CONCERT-IN-THE-PARK--canceled
Due to ongoing restrictions, combined with uncertainty surrounding vendor relationships and the need to make commitments far in advance, the Park Committee has canceled the upcoming Fourth of July Concert-in-the-Park. The Park Committee works diligently to provide a variety of events that bring our community together, and they are disappointed at not being able to move forward with the concert. They look forward to returning to a full slate of events where neighbors can safely socialize.
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.
