The VVCA semi-annual meeting was held on Jan 19, 2016. Links to documents from the meeting are below:
Welcome to the official website of the Vista Verde Community Association (VVCA). Vista Verde is a residential community nestled in the Santa Cruz Mountains of San Mateo County, 50 miles south of San Francisco and six miles from Stanford University. Situated above the Town of Portola Valley at an average elevation of 1500 feet, it overlooks San Francisco Bay and is surrounded by thousands of wooded acres of permanent open space, yet is only 10 minutes from Interstate 280. The 105 "rural estates" are favored by a microclimate ranked among the best in the world.
This website provides information of interest to current and prospective residents. This site contains a great deal of useful and interesting information - please enjoy exploring!
The magical paradox of Vista Verde is that its rural beauty and solitude is just 10 minutes from I280 and the heart of Silicon Valley. However, our community's unique geography and geology also make it susceptible to major earthquakes and wildland fires. During a major natural disaster, our community could be cut off from emergency services for days. By being prepared and getting involved in various training exercises/classes, residents can help to protect themselves, their families, their neighbors, and their property in the case of a major natural disaster.
On the evening of April 16, 2015 in a ceremony at Woodside Fire Station 7, Bill Tagg received the Gaylynne Mann award. Bill is a long-time Vista Verde resident and has tirelessly led Vista Verde's CERPP group for many years.
Established in 2015 in memory of Woodside Fire Protection District Emergency Preparedness Coordinator Gaylynne Mann, this award recognizes an outstanding individual or group in the fire district, who by their actions, furthers emergency preparedness in our community.
The award recipient is selected by the CERPP Board of Directors and WFPD/CERPP staff.

This article discusses SOD and how it can be prevented. The Vista Verde/Los Trancos Woods Sudden Oak Death (SOD) Task Force was formed to help minimize the effects of SOD in our neighborhood by educate homeowners and identifying best practices. The SOD Task Force is headed by Amanda Lee and has compiled the information below.
