Welcome to the WebSite for

The Palomino Lakes Community

This is a website for those interested in the Palomino Lakes Community located outside Cloverdale in the heart of wine country in northern Sonoma County. Palomino Lakes is a private community of approximately 115 properties (108 homes), in which the property owners own and maintain their own roads and water system. There are two boards of directors -- one for the Property Owners Association (PLPOA) governing the roads and general quality of life, and the other for the Mutual Water Company (PLMWC) governing the water system.

Documents and other material are provided on this website are intended for general information only and are not intended to meet disclosure requirements in the sale of any property. Prospective buyers should contact the seller for all disclosures and documents.

Property owners or their representative seeking documents or information in order sell a property or title companies needing POA information should contact the Palomino Lakes Property Owners Asssociation, plpoacommunication@palominolakes.org or call (707) 836-3593.

Questions for the water mutual company should be directed to Erica Lane uslanes@comcast.net, (707) 894-5477. Include the address of the property in question, the information requested, your name and contact information. Much information is available on this site so please check first.

Palomino Lakes Community Notes:

What you should know about Burn Piles and other Outdoor Fires
Did you know a burn permit is required for all outdoor fires? It also impacts others in our community. Read this letter from Sonoma County about our community and recent complaints by clicking here.

Mosquito Prevention
Please make sure any containers, tires, depressions, etc. that may be holding water are emptied. Leaving standing water invites mosquitos to breed; and breeding mosquitos mean not only annoyance to you and your neighbors but also the potential spread of various diseases! More information can be found by clicking here.

Septic Tanks Don't Last Forever!
Septic tanks -- which we all have -- are taken for granted and rarely given a second thought. But did you know that periodic maintenance can seriously extend the life of your tank? Know where your tank is (install access ports if necessary -- they will save you money the first inspection!) and call someone to service it at least every 3 years. When a septic tank no longer functions properly, you may not know it for some time but the untreated waste potentially can impact our community's water quality. For more information, try this document I found from Montana State University: Septic Tank and Drainfield Operation and Maintenance
