Saranap Homeowners Organization Bylaws

Excerpts from our approved Bylaws:

The mission of the Saranap Homeowners Organization is to monitor proposed development, and provide planning direction to reflect low-density zoning that is compatible with the surrounding neighborhood use, and provide design guidance for architectural styles that blend with the immediate neighborhood.

The goals are to help preserve the established residential character of the Saranap area, preserve the area as semi-rural, and limit the expansion of higher-density development throughout the greater Saranap area.

Full Membership shall be extended, upon receipt and acceptance of a membership application and payment of dues, to those individuals owning residences in the Saranap Area of Walnut Creek. The Saranap Area generally consists of those unincorporated neighborhoods of Contra Costa County, between Lafayette to the west, Walnut Creek to the east, Rossmoor to the south, and Highway 24 to the north.
