Welcome to the Huntington Palisades Property Owners’ Association (“HPPOC”) website. We hope you will find it to be a useful and informative resource for all things related to the Huntington Palisades and the HPPOC. We are all privileged to live in this very special neighborhood. It has thrived and survived over the years in no small part due to the cooperation and goodwill of our fellow residents and we look forward to your continued cooperation and participation.
Note from the Board:
Dear Fellow Huntington Neighbors,
As our families and community deal with the difficulties of our new reality, the HPPOC Board of Directors has given careful consideration to the ways in which our community is impacted and we will continue to do so. The Board of Directors has fielded multiple questions and concerns surrounding COVID-19 through management and individually and would like to take a moment to address some of those concerns here.
In March, Mayor Eric Garcetti announced that Los Angeles would be converting 42 of its recreation centers into temporary shelters for homeless individuals, including the Palisades Recreation Center. While the rec center is currently designated only for ‘emergency’ use and is not housing homeless individuals at the time of this writing, the Board is cognizant of the health and safety concerns that have been raised by some members of the community as well as the desires expressed by others to help address the needs of the most vulnerable among us during this extraordinary time. Although the primary function of the HPPOC Board of Directors is to enforce the governing documents of the association, the Board has relayed this community feedback to the appropriate government agencies, namely: the Mayor’s office, Councilman Bonin’s office and the Palisades Community Council. We also strongly encourage all of our neighbors to reach out and share their comments, concerns and views with these offices/agencies directly; contact information for each is provided below.
As an additional safety measure, the Board has also closed the HPPOC park until further notice. While a difficult decision, the Board considered the actions that municipalities and other homeowners associations are taking at this time to help advance social distancing and to “flatten the curve”. We understand that the park closure is an inconvenience, but we hope that you too will understand the importance of this temporary measure in protecting the lives of those in our community.
We as a board feel it is ever more important to be connected during these challenging times. If you did not receive this same communication via email, please send an email to Nicolas.Gambino@FSResidential.com noting your name and address to ensure you are included in all future electronic communication from the association.
We value the input of each and every one of our members and thank our many neighbors for their unwavering efforts to continue to make the Huntington a wonderful place to live. We wish you and your family good health and good spirits in these challenging times.

2020 Annual Meeting
On January 1, 2020 a new law in came into effect in California which updated the process by which home owners associations conduct annual elections. In order to comply with this new law, HOAs across the state were obligated to update and pass new election rules for their communities. A draft of these rules was mailed to the HPPOC membership at the end of January. While the association typically holds the election in February, the time required to allow for comment on the rules, as well as the new process itself which was lengthened as a result of the law, pushed the election back to May. Please note that the postponement is only for this year. The election will return to February beginning in 2021, barring unforeseen circumstances.
Members will receive election information and ballots at least 30 days before the election, once scheduled.
