Fountaingrove Ranch, one of California’s most dynamic and beautiful communities, meanders across the northeastern foothills of the Mayacamas Range within the city limits of Santa Rosa. More than 800 distinctive homes and condominiums populate thousands of acres of oak, fir and redwood-studded hillsides, ridges and canyons surrounding a championship 18-hole private golf course, lake and open space.

The next Board of Directors meeting is scheduled for November 13, 2013 at 7:00 pm at Fountaingrove Golf & Athletic Club, 1525 Fountaingrove Parkway,Santa Rosa.
Common interest developments were first regulated in California in 1963. However, the laws affecting homeowners associations were scattered throughout the Corporations Code and the Civil Code and did not adequately address the unique issues posed by community associations.
A comprehensive body of law governing common interest developments was drafted in 1985 and became known as the Davis-Stirling Common Interest Development Act.
All homeowners’ associations including Fountaingrove Ranch are governed by “the Davis-Stirling Act”. The Act is frequently revised by the State Legislature, thereby causing some of the provisions of our governing documents (mainly the ByLaws & CC&Rs) to become outdated.
The Board of Directors has been in the process of updating the Association’s governing documents with legal counsel. As part of this process, the board must solicit comments from the membership to assist in the evaluation of the proposed restated governing documents. We are asking you to provide such input. To assist you in identifying the changes that were made, the color coded version of the restated governing documents is posted on the association’s website www.fgrma.com.
Please provide your comments by email to email@example.com or by mail. We would like to receive your input by May 13, 2013. All comments received will be considered in finalizing the restated governing documents before it is put out to the membership for a vote.
An open meeting to discuss this topic with our legal counsel is scheduled for Wednesday, May 15th at 6 pm in the Fountaingrove Golf & Athletic Club. Please come to this important meeting to openly discuss and answer your concerns.
Thank you for your assistance in this important process.

The design guidelines and rules offered in the design review manual have been developed in an effort to maintain and compliment the natural physical character of Fountaingrove and to achieve a consistent level of review by the Architectural Control Committee (ACC). New construction, exterior modifications and major landscape projects must be submitted for preliminary review and must be received ten (10) workdays prior to the next scheduled meeting. The ACC meetings are held on the third Tuesday every month. If you have any questions, please call Gigi LaFontaine at 575.5171.
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 »

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.
