The Board of Directors is aware of the current water shortage and understands that some owners are considering replacing their current lawns with artificial turf.
At the most recent Board of Directors meeting, the Board approved the following standards for artificial turf for front yards within the Association. The Board intends to strictly control the quality of turf to be installed as this is most important in preserving the value of the homes in the Vista Pointe community.
All requests for artificial turf must be submitted with a “to scale” landscape plan reflecting the footprint of the yard as well as all landscape areas, and will be considered on a case-by case basis.
Please be aware that mold can build up in artificial turf over time as well as show wear and discoloration. It is the individual owner’s responsibility to ensure that the artificial turf is maintained in the same condition as when it was installed. The association can and will demand replacement of the turf if it is not properly maintained.
The Board has 30 days to review and respond to the submittal, and will reply to the homeowners as soon as possible. In most cases, the review process will be sooner than 30 days.
Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions.

Many residents have been speeding through the stop sign at the Vista Pointe Exit gate. The posted speed limit as you exit the community is 5 miles per hour.
Please remember to make a full stop at the stop sign each time you exit the community and to drive no more than 5 miles per hour until you have passed the guard house. The community stop signs and posted speed limits are in effect to ensure the safety of all residents in the community.
Reckless driving is dangerous AND will not be tolerated.
Therefore please be advised that the Vista Pointe Security Guards will be aggressively ticketing any resident who fails to make a full stop at the stop sign just prior to the exit gate or exits the community at a speed in excess of 5 miles per hour.
We urge drivers to make a full stop at all stop signs throughout the community as tickets will be issued to ALL violators. Your cooperation in keeping our community safe is greatly appreciated.
Thank You! Your Board of Directors
Coyotes are capable of scaling fences up to six feet high. They will also dig under fences. They can be deterred by solid fence with no visibility to inside, increasing the height of fencing and facing it outward at a 45 degree angle. Bury the bottom of the fence at least six to twelve inches underground to prevent the coyote from digging underneath. A covered enclosure set up with a pet door will permit your pet to go safely outdoors.
Everyone enjoys observing wildlife in its natural environment. However, many well-meaning residents of urban hillside and rural areas have promoted an unnatural boldness in coyotes by intentionally or unintentionally feeding them.
Recognize that the coyote is indigenous to Calabasas. We built our city in the coyote’s backyard and the coyote has adapted to this environment. We should adapt to the presence of the coyote. There are precautions residents should take to mitigate unwanted interactions.
The City of Calabasas is committed to securing its long-term sustainability by adopting a new green initiative to improve the quality of the environment, reduce green house gas emissions, use finite natural resources more efficiently, and save you money. The green initiative is aimed at promoting environmentally responsible development, upgrading existing city facilities, and educational outreach.
