Parents when dropping off your children along Forest Glen, please make sure to drop them off at the curb side and not in the street. Please have children use one of the new cross walks when crossing Forest Glen to the school-yard gate. This gate was installed with our NP parents and students in mind. While it is a convenience it can become a nuisance for residents that do not have children attending the school. Your cooperation is of the utmost importance in maintaining this school access gate. Residents must follow the rules of the road or it could be removed by the association if unsafe activities are noted by the IRVPD.

Vehicle Transponder Update: The 2011 Transponders look a little different. The newer version is a little larger than the prior one (see photo, top is the 2010 model and bottom picture is the new transponder) the antenna signal is stronger so we are hoping for less reading issues. The earlier versions will continue to work as long as they are attached to the vehicles windshield. Currently transponders are on backorder. If needed, please pre reserve one with the office, expected delivery is the first week in February. Getting ready to purchase a new vehicle? Please be reminded that transponder stickers are NOT transferable from one vehicle to another. Do NOT try to attach the old transponder to your new vehicle. This could cause damage to your new vehicle since the gate arm mechanism will not receive a clear signal. If you are purchasing a new vehicle and have a old transponder please remove from old vehicle and bring in with your new vehicle to the Community Services office to activate a new transponder. Replacement cost is $25.00 when you turn in the old, additional transponders are $35.00 each. Personal checks and Credit cards are the only form of payment received; please note a convenience fee of $4.00 is charged for credit card transactions. To make special arrangements to obtain a transponder please email the office at;

The BMP’s identify measures and practices first controlling runoff from the community into adjacent areas and storm drains that ultimately drain into the Pacific Ocean. Some of these practices include making sure homeowners’ landscape irrigation systems are adjusted properly to apply the proper volume of water to avoid excess runoff, not disposing of motor oil, paint products or detergents into the streets and ultimately the storm drains. Compliance by residents is important for several reasons. First, violation of these practices may subject the resident to penalties not only from the Association, but also from any public agency that has the right to monitor and enforce compliance. Second, violation of these practices may result in the imposition of more stringent maintenance requirements on the association, which could cause increases in monthly homeowner assessments.
