A Little Bit About Our Association
The Alta Sierra Property Owners Association is a community-based organization located in the foothills of Northern California. Not far away are the communities of Grass Valley and Nevada City, both part of Nevada County. The Association (A.S.P.O.A.), a not-for-profit organization made up of volunteers, has served the Alta Sierra community since 1971. It is governed by an elected Board of Directors, consisting of nine members and several standing committees, which establish and administer its policies and programs.
Alta Sierra Property Owners’ Association is an all volunteer, not-for-profit organization, charged with enforcing the CC&R’s and dedicated to advancing programs that make our Alta Sierra community attractive, safe, harmonious, and healthy for all residents.
The primary goals of ASPOA are:
(1) To preserve the scenic beauty and unique character of Alta Sierra
(2) To maintain property values

Owners of parcels outside of Alta Sierra , but contiguous to its boundaries, may join with approval of the Board. Renters are eligible to join as Associate Members and enjoy the same benefits and privileges, except voting for the Board of Directors. Annual dues are $40.00.
Alta Sierra is a community of over 3000 homes nestled in the oaks, pines and cedars at approximately 2,000 feet elevation. It is situated just east of Highway 49 and five miles south of Grass Valley. It is a one hour drive to Sacramento and two hours to Reno and Lake Tahoe.
Alta Sierra was first developed in the early 1960s. Parcels were originally lot-sale only, with the purchasers constructing custom dwellings. Today, most of the parcels have been built upon. However, there many fine homes available on the resale market.
