CCR's and governing documents
Please take time to review and become familiar with our governing documents. They provide important information you should be aware of. The board follows and adheres to our documents to maintain our community.
In case of an emergency such as: outside broken water pipes, or roof leaks you MUST call Compass Management Company before calling your own vendor to address repairs. You can call 408-226-3300. They have a 24 hour service. Compass has preferred vendors that are approved to make community repairs. If you proceed with your own repair service without notifying Compass Management Company, you will be responsible for all charges without possible reimbursement.

Neighborhood Watch Meeting Announcement
Dear Homeowner Members:
Please join us for a Neighborhood Watch meeting where we will be speaking about the radio network along with other topics that are aimed at reducing the crime rate in Almaden and coordinating other essential emergency services:
Date: Tuesday, December 1st
Place: Vineland Branch Library, 1450 Blossom Hill Rd.
Time: 6:00 to 8:00 PM
Greetings California Ridge HOA,
Due to the Veterans Day Holiday, the November Board Meeting will move from Wednesday, November 11 to Thursday, November 12. The start time remains at 6PM and the location is unchanged.
There will be no Board Meeting in December.
Emails and phone calls have been flooding into my office over the past few days about an NBC-11 story that talked about a possible overnight homeless parking facility for the County-owned lot at the southeast corner of Almaden Expressway and Camden Avenue. My staff and I are busy responding to each of you. Like you, I want to see the homeless get the help they need – the City and County are committing millions of dollars to these efforts – however, I do NOT support placing any overnight parking facility in our residential neighborhoods and will fight any attempt to do so.
This is NOT a City of San Jose proposal, and there is a lot of misinformation out there on Nextdoor and elsewhere about the proposal, so I want to bring you all up to date with the information I have.
Remember we share our living space with wild life such as; mountain lions which can threaten everyone's safety, including those of our pets. This was evident by the traces of deer parts left behind after it fell prey to perhaps a mountain lion on Copper Peak. Take precaution during your early or late day walks, be watchful of your children and bring your pets indoors at night.

Community Book Libraries:
The Board of directory and the Social Committee are working on a project to install two Book Library Houses in our community to share books. If approved, this project will start in October, 2015.
Check out http://littlfreelibrary.org for more details.
The landscape team (which is also the street repair team), the Board of Directors, and Compass management has been working hard on a project to repair the streets in the community. This is a scheduled project that will be paid from the reserve budget. The project is scheduled to start within 30 to 60 days. The focus for the first part of the project will include Copper Peak and all of the interior streets. The Shelby Creek side of the community will be completed in the spring of 2016.
More about this project later.
Start organizing your unwanted items. California Ridge is planning to sponsor a Garage Sale on July 18, 2015. More later...
Regular attendees of the Board meetings and some Board members have requested a community book sharing system. You might have noticed little wooden houses in other neighborhoods where neighbors share books (leave a book, take a book). The Board of Directors and several home owners are investigating solutions for our community. More later...
