 MAINTENANCE AND IMPROVEMENTS

 

Who do I contact if I have a public area maintenance concern?

The exterior landscapes along Da Vall and Gerald Ford, the entry gates and the Da Vinci detention basin are maintained by the Association’s landscape maintenance contractor who works under the direction of the property management company. If you have a concern about the public area maintenance please contact the property management company by phone at (760) 325-9500 or online through the Contact Us page on this website.

I want to renovate the interior of my home, do I need Association approval?
No. As long as your alteration does not affect the exterior you should proceed remembering that your alteration must be in compliance with local building and fire codes. If in doubt, contact the Cathedral City Building Department before embarking on any expensive project. Your contractor may tell you “no problem”, but checking beforehand can save you money and avoid disappointment.
