Welcome New Residents

On behalf of the Sierra Board of Directors and residents, the Sierra Welcoming Committee would like to welcome you to the neighborhood.   Hopefully, you will find Sierra to be a peaceful and enjoyable community in which to live.

One of the many great things about living here in Sierra is our goal to ensure all new residents receive a warm welcome to the neighborhood.  Our Sierra Welcoming Committee strives to schedule a brief visit with new residents within a month of our being notified of their arrival.   The committee not only provides a packet of helpful information, resources, and—best of all--home-baked goodies, but also highlights the many amenities and activities in the neighborhood.  The committee also serves as a point of contact for any questions the new residents may have.

So, if you are new to the neighborhood, and haven’t received your welcome packet, please provide your contact information via email to sierra.mailbox@gmail.com or contact any board member.

HELPFUL INFORMATION:

MEMBERSHIP DUES AND CARDS

All Sierra property owners are considered members and are required to pay annual membership dues which are billed by early February and are due by April 1.  Membership cards are included along with the annual dues statements.

New property owners will be issued their membership cards once we have your contact information, including a correct mailing address.  These cards are needed for accessing the pool and other events. 

COVENANTS & RULES

Residents abiding by our covenants and rules help ensure Sierra continues to be a great place to live.

CLUBHOUSE & POOL

We have a great community clubhouse located in the Southwest area of the neighborhood.  It’s available to rent for private events by property owners.  There are also free community activities including:

  • Exercise class - usually twice a week on Monday's and Thursday's at 9:00am
  • Mahjongg  - usually on Thursday mornings at 10:00am
  • Large outdoor swimming pool - open in the summer and available to members in good standing (current on dues and water bill and no unresolved violations).  Guests may swim when accompanying a member for a small fee. Members must show their Sierra membership card, and tenants must show their pool pass to use the pool.  Contact the Sierra Secretary at sccsecy@gmail.com with questions about pool access.
  • Potluck dinners - held on the last Saturday of each month with socializing starting at 6:00 pm and dinner at 6:30 pm.  All residents, owners or tenants are always welcome to attend.  Bring a dish to share, your place setting, and your drink of choice.  Sierra provides coffee and tea.

COMMUNICATIONS

  • Monthly Board Meetings – Our board meetings are usually the 3rd Wednesday of the month. Check the Board Meetings page for the schedule.  Everyone is welcome to attend.
  • Calling Tree - We utilize an automated calling system to notify you whenever we need to restrict water usage.  This happens when maintenance or repair activities require us to shut down our water system.  For this reason, it is most important that we have a good phone number for you.
  • Email - Our community e-mail box is sierra.mailbox@gmail.com.  It’s used for potluck dinner and other important notifications.  Please keep us informed of your e-mail address and if it changes.
  • Quarterly Newsletter – A community newsletter is distributed every quarter to all property owners. It includes board member reports, and other information about what’s going on in Sierra.
