2021 Fiscal Impacts to SAMLARC

As a Master Homeowners Association, SAMLARC is classified as a not for profit corporation, governed by Governing Documents (Articles of Incorporation, CC&Rs, bylaws, and rules adopted by the Board of Directors). These documents create legal duties and obligations for the Association to preserve the value, desirability, and attractiveness of the property that SAMLARC owns and holds a responsibility to maintain. To meet these duties and obligations, the Board adopts an annual budget with expenses that are determined in large measure as non-discretionary costs. The budget also takes into consideration the measures of Civil Code Section 5600 (a), which states that the Board must levy regular and special assessments sufficient to perform its obligations under the governing documents.


Annually, each Committee under the direction of the Board provides input and guidance into the preparation of the upcoming year’s budget. A Budget Workshop is held annually, open to the Membership, for the Board of Directors to consider, discuss and approve the upcoming fiscal year budget effective January 1. The Board held the 2021 Budget Workshop on October 6, 2020 and following much deliberation the Board approved the 2021 fiscal year budget for SAMLARC.

Picnic Shelter Reservations Begin Saturday, October 17

In accordance with new guidance issued by the California Department of Public Health, SAMLARC Members may now reserve SAMLARC picnic shelters for dates beginning Saturday, October 17, 2020. This new guidance allows Members and their families to celebrate the fall season together while continuing to support public health.


SAMLARC picnic shelters are able to reopen under the State’s Guidance on Private Gatherings. The Guidance encourages families to weigh the benefits and challenges of hosting a gathering in light of COVID-19’s transmission methods and rates. SAMLARC’s Picnic Shelter Guidelines align with the State’s requirements. Members and their guests must comply with the Guidelines when using a picnic shelter in order to enjoy time together while protecting the community.


The picnic shelters are available on a first-come, first-served basis with limited reservations on weekends. Both reserved and non-reserved use of the picnic shelters must adhere to the standard picnic shelter rules as well as the COVID-19 Picnic Shelter Guidelines. Please click the button to learn more.
