The Rossmoor Homeowners Association (RHA) is a non-profit (501(c)(4)) civic league dedicated to civic service to the Rossmoor community, its homeowners and residents. Organized in 1957 to preserve, protect and enhance the quality of life in Rossmoor, it remains the only organization that represents the Rossmoor Neighborhood and its interests.
The RHA has no governmental authority and does not own or maintain any property or facilities. The RHA Board are all volunteers and are elected to two year terms by the RHA membership. RHA membership is open to all residents, and homeowners. Unlike most homeowners associations (HOAs), membership is not required, although the RHA is reliant on dues paying members to communicate and advocate on the neighborhood’s behalf.
Note: Rossmoor has no Covenants, Codes and Restrictions (CC&R’s) that control home appearances, zoning, etc. All zoning, health and safety, and building codes are enforced by Orange County. See more about community standards here.
The RHA’s objectives are simple:
- Represent and advocate for homeowners and residents in protection of property interests and community values.
- Communicate with and elicit input from the Rossmoor community through general meetings, events, surveys, email, Town Hall meetings, and the Rossmoor Signature News.
- Maintain a non-sectarian and non-partisan approach toward the formulation of policies and resolution of problems.
- Represent and speak with one voice to any local, municipal, county or state legislative body whose actions can affect the rights of Rossmoor homeowners, residents and the community.
- Work directly with the organizations governing and providing services to Rossmoor. These organizations include the Rossmoor Community Services District, our Orange County 2nd District Supervisor, and the various County departments providing services to Rossmoor.
The RHA continues to support and contribute to Rossmoor’s quality of life. Take a quick look the Rossmoor Homeowners Association’s past and present contributions to Rossmoor and its residents. It’s all because of the RHA members and their willingness to join and volunteer their time and effort.
