Home Owners Association

The Stallion Springs Home Owners Association held their annual meeting on November 14 on the lawn adjacent to the Community Center. The meeting had been delayed from June due to the Coronavirus. The board held an election of officers for the 2020-21 year. Nick Cunningham was elected president, Debbie Rodriguez was elected vice president, Lori Rodgers received the secretary nomination and Donnie Williams will be the treasurer.

In 2020, the POA granted six $1,000 scholarships to Stallion students: Maleena Davis, Gemma Rausch, Ava Danniels, Ciarra Bellah, Issack Ryder and Christine Dieken.

The group also approved $2,650 for bleachers or benches fo be placed at Man O' War park.

The HOA will be hosting a contest for the top outdoor decorations for the holiday season. Decorate your home to represent your holiday. There will be three different prizes which will include donated prizes from your favorite local businesses and from the HOA. We are forming a judging panel and judging will be on December 12.

There will be sign ups in November via email, so hang tight and get your decorations ready.

Let's light up this community and make it shine for everyone to enjoy.

CSD General Manager, Vanessa Stevens, spoke and updated the group on community project plans and ideas related to the PROP 68 Grant and took suggestions as to services needed in the park. This was the third of the five planned meetings on this proposed grant scheduled by The Stallion Springs Parks and Recreation Department. The meeting was held just outside the Community Center near where the new park would built.

Stallion Springs Trails and Trail Maintenance

The Trail Maintenance group has started a Facebook page to keep in touch with interested residents. The group will be arranging maintenance days and to meet up with new hikers or horse riders in the area. Get out and hike. For years they have tried to get a group together to help maintain our trails and on November 14, it finally happened. Stallion has such beautiful trails and on our first trail day, we were overwhelmed with the amount of amazing people that showed up to help. It was an incredible day and thank you all for your work. We are looking forward to more trail days.
