Rosa Del Rio is a planned residential development about five miles south of downtown Sacramento, California. As its Spanish name implies (Rose of the River) it is about a half mile east of the Sacramento River.
The property was once part of Sacramento’s agricultural area, owned by the Da Rosa family. In 1971, Ken Duncan, of Carmichael Construction Company, along with architect Harry Y. Nakahara and Ralph C. Petrelli began construction of the Planned Unit Development. The first home was completed on January 7, 1972 with the last of the 115 homes completed February 22, 1979.
The community is governed by CC&Rs and a nonprofit homeowners association. Unlike most homeowners’ associations that have relied on professional management, Rosa Del Rio has always relied on homeowners and residents as volunteers to serve on the Board of Directors and its various committees. Because of this, monthly dues have been considerably lower than average – particularly amazing given the HOA fees include landscape maintenance, roofing, and exterior painting of all 115 residences. In addition, the HOA maintains a community clubhouse, a 2 acre park with a heated swimming pool and two regulation tennis courts.
