Wine & Design – October 20th 5:00 p.m
|Are you thinking about, or in the process of drawing up plans for a home improvement project? Our consulting architect will be on site Thursday, October 20th from 5:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. to help homeowners with plan submittal conformity with the NGR Architectural Guidelines & CC&Rs. We will not be taking the place of your architect in design and aesthetic guidance, but we will assist in brief 10-15 minute sessions with you, and your architect if you wish, to provide counseling on the submittal requirements including but not limited to the following:|
|• What is required for an Accessory Dwelling Unit?|
• What can and can’t be located in proximity to the Equestrian Easement?
• What drainage may be required based on your proposed improvements?
• What material samples should be included with the submittal?
• What are the setbacks for your property?
• What is the maximum permitted height of the structure?
• Is a survey required?
• What level of detail needs to be on the plans for your specific improvements?
• What screening may be required to soften hardscape elements like solar panels, retaining walls and sport courts?
|Please call the Association office at 949-425-1477 for an RSVP 10-15 minute appointment at The Watering Hole Multi-Purpose Room on Thursday, October 20th from 5 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. You may attend with your plans, or ideas, and your wish list! The goal of this new program is to improve the homeowner experience with the review process and increase the number of 1st review approvals. Your appointment comes with a complimentary glass of wine.|

There are three active investigations for reported burglaries in Nellie Gail Ranch that occurred this past week. Two are on the North side of Oso and one on the South. We have asked OCSD if they believe the three are connected in any way and they have advised the three are in active investigation and they have no additional information they can release. OCSD recommends homeowner sign up for crime alerts on Crimemapping.com. This website accurately depicts all reported crimes in the area. It is easy to sign up, you enter your address and e-mail and identify which categories of crimes you want to receive e-mail alerts for.

No bikes of any type are permitted on the trails. It’s not just a rule for the sake of having a rule. Our community is an equestrian community and horses and bikes do not mix safely. Horses are flight animals and speeding bikes appear to horses to be predators. The easements our homeowners have over their properties are easements for equestrian purposes, not easements for every conceivable sport. Bicycles from Stingrays to E-Bikes and everything in-between are not permitted on trails.
