Join the legal battle for our rights as property owners

As a homeowner and member of the Alta Sierra Property Owners Association, I am greatly disturbed by the actions of our board. The board members are spending money on attorneys to turn our neighborhood into another mandatory HOA type community like Lake of the Pines or Lake Wildwood.

I am totally against this, however, the board implies that the people against this move are all pot growers. I am not one of those at all, just concerned about the money they are spending on attorneys’ fees while needed programs like the dead deer removal and brush removal go unfunded.

The board proposes that joining the HOA become mandatory and want to raise the already high fees by 60 percent. The board wants to be given the power to enforce the CC&Rs with fines and even liens on residents’ property. We don’t need that kind of board, we need arbitration with our neighbors and our community. Had we wanted to live in such a place, we would have bought our home in LOP or Lake Wildwood. We want to keep the rural peace of Alta Sierra just the way it is.

If you live in Alta Sierra and feel the same as I do, please sign the petition and join the legal battle for our rights as property owners. Go to and read what your neighbors have to say vs. the board.
