Homeowner's Association

Homeowners' Associations

Print

Beginning with the rapid national growth seen in the 1960's and the increasingly larger scale of residential developments, Homeowners' Associations (HOA) have become commonplace in American neighborhoods, with nearly one in six people living in a community regulated by some form of HOA.  Homeowners' associations seek to protect the character of the neighborhood, preserve its natural beauty, and maintain (and enhance) property values. 

There are a number of active Homeowners' Associations (HOA) in the Town that require review of any proposed exterior work (from planting and painting to building a new residence) on properties within the HOA prior to commencement of that work. For projects subject to architectural review by the ASCC (as well as any other projects), you should make contact with your HOA as early as possible in your design/conceptual phase to allow the board adequate time to review your proposal. The HOA board will likely provide input on design strategies and/or propose some conditions for their approval. It is ideal for you to secure your HOA’s approval prior to submitting an application for ASCC or building permit with the Town. If you are unsure whether your property is located within an HOA, contact the Building & Planning Department at (650) 851-1700 ex. 216.  Town HOA contacts are listed below.
