About RHA

Rossmoor Homeowners Association - Serving Rossmoor Residents since 1957
Rossmoor Homeowners Association – Serving Rossmoor Residents since 1957

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 the 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 our 1st Supervisorial District representative to our governing body, the Orange County Board of Supervisors.
  • Work directly with the organizations that provide services to Rossmoor.  These organizations include the Rossmoor Community Services District (RCSD), the California Highway Patrol (CHP), and the various County departments and agencies (Public Works, Orange County Sheriff’s Department, etc.) providing services to Rossmoor.

The RHA continues to support and contribute to Rossmoor’s quality of life. Take a quick look at 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.

RHA Board Elections

Elections for the RHA Board are held in May of each year. A ballot made available (via mail or online) to each RHA member household to elect members to fill the expiring Board positions. The elected Board members serve a two-year term and are announced at the regular June Board meeting, taking office on July 1st. The President and the other Board positions are elected from within the Board for the following year at the regular June meeting.

RHA Board Meetings

Ordinarily, the Board meets at 7:00 p.m. at Rossmoor Park on the third Tuesday of each month except December although special Board meetings may be called. Please see the RHA calendar for updated times and locations. All Rossmoor residents are encouraged to attend.


The Rossmoor Community Services District (RCSD) is a  governmental agency that is vital to keeping Rossmoor the great place that it is. However, the RCSD is not part of the RHA. Find out more about the RCSD and its responsibilities here.

A Tax Fact for Rossmoor

As an unincorporated area, Rossmoor is not entitled to any sales tax revenues, under formulas set by the state. The sales tax revenues now generated from the restaurants and other businesses in the Rossmoor Village (the northeast corner of Rossmoor bounded by Los Alamitos Blvd and Katella) go to the County’s general fund.  Sales tax from the Shops at Rossmoor and the Target-Ralph’s Shopping Center go to the city of Seal Beach.

Additionally, because we do not reside in Los Alamitos or Seal Beach, we are not subject to the additional sales taxes those cities have levied. The sales tax rate for all goods delivered to a Rossmoor address should be taxed at the county tax rate, currently 7.75%. If you are charged more than that on your Amazon or other delivered order, please contact the merchant or the state to correct the overpayment. Additional info here.
