The Sunriver Neighborhood Association (SNA) is a dedicated
group of Sunriver neighbors who volunteer their time, talents,
and energy to help make Sunriver a better community for us all.
Formed in 2000, the SNA focuses on neighborhood issues such as
cleanup and beautification, crime prevention, traffic issues,
community and social events, providing information and resources
to neighbors, collaboration with government entities, and building
stronger relationships among neighbors. Whether you own or rent
your home, we heartily encourage you to join us in our efforts
to enhance and protect our neighborhood.
The SNA is involved in numerous activities designed to improve
our neighborhood, including:
- providing information and updates to neighbors on topics
of general interest, including City, County, and other governmental
activities, as well as opportunities to participate in civic
- providing two-way communication between residents and government
- conducting neighborhood cleanup and work-party events
- publishing a website, www.sunriveronline.org,
with information, breaking news, and resources specifically for
- publishing and delivering a periodic newsletter, the Sunriver
- arranging social and educational events for the neighborhood
- conducting public neighborhood meetings
- contributing information to local media
- operating an email mailing list, or "e-Group,"
connecting neighbors and providing an open forum for discussion
on a wide range of topics
We invite participation from Sunriver neighbors in any or
all of these activities.
What is the SNA?
The SNA is comprised entirely of neighborhood volunteers working
to improve our own community. It is not a government agency or
commercial enterprise. Participation is welcomed from all residents
(owners and renters alike), neighboring businesses, and other
groups located in the Sunriver area. We are not a "homeowners
association." We do not create or enforce rules or ordinances.We
do not currently collect any dues, though donations are welcome.
The SNA is not intended as a marketing or publicity vehicle for
any specific business, although some SNA expenses are covered
by revenue generated by ads in the Sunriver Sentinel and/or
the Sunriver Online website. Currently, we are not a legal entity,
nor are we registered as a nonprofit organization with the State
of California. The Declaration of
Tract Restrictions, also referred to as Community
Covenants and Restrictions ("CC&Rs") which
Sunriver property buyers receive, was written by the original
property developer, M.J. Brock & Sons. The SNA has no direct
association with this document in regard to authorship or enforcement.
Membership in the SNA
Membership is limited to current Sunriver residents
(owners and renters alike) and a select few individuals, primarily
public officials, admitted on a case-by-case basis. All members
are invited to participate in any SNA activity. We encourage
individuals to register with the SNA so that a channel of communication
(primarily via e-mail) can be established, providing members
with breaking news, crime alerts, and neighborhood updates. Participation
in the Sunriver e-Group and certain members-only sections of
the website is limited to registered SNA members, providing an
atmosphere of privacy where neighborhood-specific issues can
be openly discussed.
The SNA takes your privacy very seriously, and any contact
information obtained via the registration process is not shared
with any other organization, business, or individual (except
in rare instances when law enforcement has requested contact
info to assist the member).
Participation in any SNA activity is completely voluntary.
The SNA is not responsible for any injury or loss incurred during
participation or as a result of any SNA activity.
The Sunriver neighborhood is located at the northern tip of the
new City of Rancho Cordova, California, between Sacramento and
the Sierra Nevada foothills. We are bordered by the American
River to the north, Sunrise Boulevard to the east, Coloma Road
to the south, and other residential areas to the west. Sunriver
includes nearly 900 single-family homes, a condominium complex,
the Sun River Church, several restaurants, professional offices,
a neighborhood shopping center, and Sunriver Park. Our neighborhood
adjoins the American River Parkway, a nature preserve along the
banks of the river that features family picnic areas and the
American River Bike Trail.
