We're the Rivers Community Association, a group made up of residential property owners like you.
If you're like us, you chose to live in The Rivers because of its quiet residential lifestyle and convenient location. You made an investment in your property, one that depends on keeping The Rivers an exceptional community.|
Every owner within The Rivers is a member of the Association.
Frequently Asked Questions
Who cleans our streets?
The Association pays Metro Sweeping to sweep the private streets once each month- usually the first Wednesday of the month. Lighthouse Drive is a public street.
How do I appeal my property tax assessment?
See the Yolo County Assessor web page. Click on Assessment Appeal (305 AH 6-08).
Does Regatta have a Homeowners Association?
Regatta does have its own HOA. The owners there pay to both the Regatta HOA and the Rivers HOA. Rivers pays for the street landscaping.
We are experiencing a power failure - what should I do?
If you are home when the power fails, if even briefly, contact PG&E at 800.743.5000. Apparently system lights flash for a couple of hours after a power failure. If someone calls, they will send someone to check the lines (e.g. look for the lights). If they find the lights, they can better troubleshoot, and, hopefully, identify a cause and solve the problem.
I have a raccoon problem - what should I do?
A homeowner should contact the Ag. Commissioner at 530-666-8140. They in turn have the Trapper phone you for all the particulars. Your call will be returned within a day or so. Recommended bait (courtesy of a Rivers resident) - a mixture of anchovies and peanut butter
