Happy New Year from the RCSA Board! Now is the time for us all to get busy and bring our properties into compliance with the CC&R’s. There are several things that we need to be reminded of. Your yards need to be cleared of all weeds and debris. If you have lawn, it needs to be mowed and watered on a regular basis. Please help us continue to maintain a beautiful neighborhood, not only for the pleasure of those living here, but also to preserve our home values.
Coronavirus (COVID-19) & Our Community
The board is taking extra precautions to protect the community while enjoying our facilities by deep cleaning high-touch areas. We’re also encouraging the community to practice social distancing when you’re out an about.
Given the recent and unprecedented events affecting our nation and the entire globe, we’ve made the difficult decision to close the park and pool areas for the time being. We’re following local guidance and will reopen these facilities as public health orders by our government are lifted.
We hope you are all doing well during these difficult times and want you to know that the precautions we’re taking are to keep our community safe.
For more information about COVID-19, please see http://coronavirus.gov/.
Pool and Park
Last year our facilities were subjected to vandalism resulting in some pool safety equipment damage. This Spring, we’ll be installing surveillance equipment, but the best safeguard is individual diligence. If you witness vandalism or someone hopping over the fence, confront the person or call a board member. It’s everyone’s responsibility to protect this community asset.
Everyone under 18 is required to be accompanied by an adult (18 years or older).
DO NOT lend out your key or let people in without keys. We have noticed non-residents using this area. The Board will continue checking keys against the residence list to ensure only our residents are using these facilities. This is for the safety and protection of our community.
Board Contact Information
Come to board meetings! We meet the Second Tuesday of every month at 7:00 p.m. at the pool cabana area. All are welcome to attend.
The board sent out violation letters in Q4 2019. We’ll be following up on violations in April and sending second notices. If you receive a second notice, you’ll have two weeks to resolve the issues, unless stated otherwise in the letter. If no action is taken, fines will be assessed at $50 per day past the deadline.
Please see the attached document for the most common violations that are being observed and be aware that we’re keeping a close eye on these.
Residents of RCSA are required to reserve the park/pool area when planning a party or get together of eight (8) not to exceed 20 persons. You will need to fill out a Common Area Party agreement and submit a $50 deposit. Plan ahead as party dates are limited. Reservations can be made by calling Pete Sorrell at (916) 812-4425.
As a reminder, parking on the street in our community is by permit only. Contact information for obtaining a parking permit can be found on the next page.
Speeding continues to be a problem in the community. The weather is beginning to improve, more people are going outdoors and school will be out before we know it. Please follow the speed limit of 25 MPH.
Most Common CC&R Violations
Please note that the following are the most common CC&R violations being observed. In an effort to maintain our neighborhood’s attractiveness and keep home values up, we ask to pay special attention to these violations to avoid receiving a violation letter.
If you receive a letter from the board regarding a violation, you will be asked to resolve the issue within two weeks, unless stated otherwise in the letter. Delay in the resolution will result in a fine of $50 per day after the two-week period has expired.
