Most residents value exterior lighting that is only as bright as necessary for safety and security. Dim exterior lighting preserves better viewing of the stars and our beautiful night sky.
Residents place their trash and recycling bins out on the days of collection or after 5pm the evening before pick-up and return them following pick-up, on the same day. Check on the Palm Springs Disposal Website for your current pick-up days as they may change from year to year or with holidays. Recyclables are collected first.
Residents appreciate when having a large party that you use the parking spaces in front of your house first and make sure that your guests do not block driveways or entrances to your neighbors’ properties.
Some neighbors have arranged to have service appointments “batched” among residents e.g., one landscaping service can schedule appointments back-to-back, rather than coming and going over multiple days. These appointments are best scheduled Monday through Thursday whenever possible and Friday if necessary and not before 7am please!
If you are having work done, especially outdoors (gardeners, landscapers, exterior home repairs or other services), please try to have workers arrive after 8am if at all possible. Except for emergency repairs, Palm Springs city ordinance (8.04.220) legally allows construction work from 7am to 7pm Monday through Friday and from 8am until 5pm on Saturdays. Construction work and other repairs are prohibited on Sundays and holidays.
Many neighbors have and love dogs. All dogs bark from time-to-time, but please be considerate of your neighbors and limit your dog’s barking whenever possible. Do not leave your dog outside when unattended. Please curb and pick-up after your dog when walking through the neighborhood.
All of our A/C and pool equipment makes noise so please be aware of the noise of your equipment as it ages and repair or replace overly noisy mechanical equipment.
Palm Springs has strict ordinances and guidelines for rental and event houses. If you rent your house, please be aware of these rules and adhere to them. Learn more about Palm Springs Vacation Rental Information
Many properties have mature landscaping which may Impact adjacent properties. Be considerate of your neighbors and trim hedges and palm trees to avoid unnecessarily diminishment of views and to avoid plant debris encroachment into neighbor yards and pools.
