La Mesa HOA Annual Meeting


Our La Mesa Homeowners Association Annual Meeting has been cancelled by your Board of Directors.  It was felt that we could do the business with a mail-in ballot for electing the three members of the Board.  Safety in these times is very important.

You will receive a ballot in the mail by 1 April with a stamped return envelope for your voting.  Please take a few moments to vote.

Should you have any question please call or email:

Short Term Rentals

On June 19, 2018, the La Mesa HOA Board of Directors, upon the recommendation of the ACC, approved the following changes to the ACC Supplemental Rules:

4.8.8 Clarification of “home occupations” in section 5.8 of CC&Rs (New)

“home occupations” shall mean a non-residential use of a home clearly incidental to the use of the home as a single family residence, which use is conducted by an Owner or other occupant of the home who is a permanent resident of the home and who has an occupation or business customarily recognized by zoning ordinances as an acceptable home occupation, which for example would include but may not be limited to professionals such as architects, engineers, lawyers, artists, authors or writers and the like, but in no event will a business that is frequented by and open to the general public be considered a home occupation. This means no business that involves the public staying overnight is permitted, such as a Bed and Breakfast and Vacation Rentals. Property rentals or subleases shorter than three months are not allowed; longer leases are permitted, provided the entire property is leased. Artists or others with home occupations who open their studios or homes to the general public once or twice a year, or otherwise for infrequent special events, are permitted to do so under the CC&Rs and their doing so shall not transform their home occupation into a business categorized as frequented by and open to the general public.
