Frequently Asked Questions and Answers

These questions and answers are just the beginning. If you have a new question to pose, do it here via e-mail.

1. Do I need a permit to pour a concrete pad on my property?
Yes. All “hardscape” improvements require an application. Hardscape includes walkways, patios, pads, rock walls etc. The ACC encourages property improvements but wants to help you comply with our CC&Rs as you proceed. Therefore, we ask you to submit your plans. You may prepare simple drawings and you may appear in person at an ACC meeting to present your plan. In most cases, we’ll approve. In some cases we’ll ask a professional consultant to evaluate the plan and report compliance with the CC&R’s. Read the rest of this entry »

Wildland/Urban Interface Fire Threat and Mitigation Report

October 1st, 2009 — Fire and Safety

Adopted by Fountaingrove Ranch Master Association Board of Directors
November 14, 2007

This report is intended as both a plan and guide for the annual mitigation of wildland fire fuels in both the open space areas within the FRMA and adjacent properties.

Because of the proximity of the FRMA to vast areas of wildland, as well as areas of FRMA open space which contain significant amounts of vegetation and are adjacent to homes, it is incumbent upon the FRMA to remain vigilant as to the condition of these areas and take appropriate steps to ensure that they are maintained in a fashion which meets fire safety requirements. Failure to do so could result in individual and/or collective liability, for FRMA board members, the association and the property manager, which could be either criminal and/or civil in nature.

Therefore, the attached report should be reviewed at least annually and updated as necessary to comply with changing conditions, regulations and laws. The Property Manager should be instructed to take the necessary steps to ensure that all FRMA opens space areas and properties adjacent to the FRMA comply with current regulations, including consulting with the Santa Rosa Fire Department, California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection, County Fire Services and contractors, as needed. This report provides all of the information necessary to accomplish the above tasks.
