License Plate Recognition Cameras and Camera Data Management Policy

The special ballot measure for license plate recognition cameras passed with 415 votes in favor of contracting for the service. At the Board Meeting of June 15, 2021, the Board approved moving forward with the Flock Safety contract for installation of cameras. The approximate time to go live with the system is August 15th. The $34.08 per homeowner annual expense will be incorporated into the 2021-22 budget commencing October 1, 2021. We will provide more updates as we get an installation schedule lined up.

The following Camera Data Management Policy provided to the homeowners with the Special Ballot Measure was also approved at the June 15, 2021 meeting. The policy explains how and to whom data collected will be disseminated.

Nellie Gail Ranch Owners Association’s proposed Easement Planting Guidelines have been drafted to facilitate Architectural Review Committee review and approval of homeowner planting in equestrian easements. Current guidelines restrict homeowners from implementing landscape improvements within the easements on their property. These guidelines would allow for planting that would further enhance trail aesthetics and the hiking and riding experience.

The purpose of this notice is to offer Nellie Gail Ranch Members an opportunity to provide comments on the new guidelines and to propose changes as may be desired. In accordance with California Civil Code section 4360, which requires the Association to provide the Members with a minimum of twenty eight (28) days general notice of proposed rule changes.

The Board invites your comments on these proposed guidelines. Member input will be considered by the Board at its open session meeting set for Tuesday, July 20, 2021. The meeting will be held at 7:30 p.m. at the Association Clubhouse.

Comments may be submitted via email to, may be delivered to the meeting, or may be mailed to 25211 Empty Saddle Drive, Laguna Hills, CA 92653.

Trails & Safety Committee Volunteer Opportunity

We are actively seeking volunteers to serve on the Trails & Safety Committee. With 25 miles of amazing trails we benefit from a volunteer network of active trail users. Volunteers meet as needed to recommend trail improvements and discuss ongoing maintenance. The committee is currently working to collaborate with the city to improve equestrian crossing safety. We would love to have someone who has a strong interest in this important issue. If you have an interest in serving on the Committee please complete the attached application and return to
