If you are encountering a problem with a barking or roaming dog, at night or during weekend, please call Santa Fe Animal Control at 428-3720 to report the problem. Please follow that up with a call to the ECIA offices at 466-4248. Should you have to leave a message for Mark Young, Covenant Compliance Representative, or the ECIA staff, please be sure to leave your name and telephone number with the message. The ECIA staff frequently receives incomplete messages, left by Eldorado residents, who fail to leave their name and telephone numbers, and without this important information, it makes it very hard, if not impossible at times, to initiate covenant enforcement actions. Keep in mind that all complainant’s names are kept confidential during the covenant enforcement process.
Residents are reminded that under the Dog Ownership Policies and Guidelines, all residents are now required to keep their dogs on leash when in any of the Eldorado Greenbelts.
Satellite Dishes on Roofs- Updated 1/21/15
Over the past year the ECIA has noted an increase in the number of Eldorado homes that have more than 1 Satellite Dish on their roofs. Under Article II, Section 13, paragraph C of the Eldorado Covenants, it is noted that Eldorado homes shall have no more than 1 Satellite dish on a roof, unless they have received approval from the ECIA Board to have more than 1 dish. This covenant is detailed as follows:
Rental of Houses in Eldorado
With an increasing trend of Homeowners renting out their homes in Eldorado, the ECIA has also noticed an increase in tenant violations of the Covenants and Guidelines. These violations range from barking or roaming dogs to uncovered RV’s and trailers. This increase in tenant violations, we believe, is due in part to the many homeowners (who are often absentee landlords) who are not doing an adequate job of screening their tenants or informing them that Eldorado is a covenant controlled community and that they (like the homeowner) are required to respect and follow the Eldorado Covenants as well as the Eldorado Guidelines for Protective Covenants and Building Restrictions.
To reverse this negative trend, we are asking all Eldorado Homeowners, who rent out their homes, to properly screen their tenants to ensure that they will be responsible tenants and will respect and abide by the Eldorado Covenants and Guidelines. As well, it is imperative that the Homeowner provide their tenants with a copy of the Covenants and Guidelines, before they rent out their home, to ensure that the tenant is aware of their responsibility as a tenant to live in harmony with their neighbors and within the requirements of these legal and binding documents.
Additionally, we ask that when a homeowner rents out their home, that they communicate the names of the tenant (s), and duration of the rental, to the ECIA offices. With this information we can more efficiently communicate with the tenants if there and problems or issues. Also this information will be required for any tenants wanting to get pool passes or use the amenities. It is also helpful for absentee landlords to hire a reputable property management company who will be able to resolve issues at your home and help the ECIA to resolve Covenant Violation matters.
Should any tenants have any questions about the ECIA or its amenities or policies they are encouraged to call the ECIA at 466-4228 or visit our website at: eldoradosf.org.
