The Riviera Estates Association is one of three Homeowners Associations in the Riviera Section of Pacific Palisades, California. (The other two are the California Riviera Homeowners Association and the Upper Riviera Homeowners Association.) Ours is comprised of 147 properties and 7 common areas which we either own or maintain, as seen on the map. A 5-person Board of Directors, who are unpaid volunteers, is elected by our membership at our annual meeting in December, and the Board meets monthly to discuss and manage neighborhood issues.
The REA was created as a Corporation in 1925. Our deed firmly states that there is a “limitation on the right to drill or operate any oil well, or to excavate for stone, grave, or earth, or place a cemetery upon the property” and our founding documents prohibit residents from opening blacksmith shops or tanneries. We have moved from those issues to solar panels, landscaping our common areas, approving construction projects and combating noise pollution from illegal leaf blowers.
Our purpose is to enforce our Conditions, Covenants and Charges (CC&Cs) so as to maintain our neighborhood as one of the best in the Los Angeles Area. Our Architectural Guidelines explain the permit process and details of our construction parameters, and we also have a process for obtaining permission for filming. A small yearly assessment, based on lot size, is levied on our members to cover our expenses.
We encourage you to become involved by coming to our monthly Board Meetings, by volunteering for a committee, or by starting a committee in an area of interest. If you plan to attend a meeting, please call or email to confirm time and location.
