Independent Living
Smith Ranch Homes is an independent living community. The Association does not provide health care services or assisted living services to residents. Some residents hire private duty personnel to provide those services.
 
History
Construction on the main Smith Ranch buildings was completed in 1989 by the developer, Tishman Speyer. Control of the Association was turned over to the homeowners in April 1996. 
 
Since then, we have been operated by an owner-elected Board of Directors. The Board designates volunteer Committees made up of homeowners to review specialized aspects of the community, such as monthly activities and adherence to architectural guidelines. These committees are in place to help the Board identify issues, make recommendations, and garner feedback.    
 
The Board of Directors also employs a General Manager to help oversee the daily operations of the Association such as negotiating service contracts and overseeing staff. The General Manager is assisted by an Associate General Manager and departmental managers who oversee the five specialized departments: Accounting and Administration, Dining Services, Housekeeping, Maintenance, and Resident Services.
 
The Association's business hours are Monday through Friday, 8:30AM - 5:00PM with 24/7 patrol officers to monitor the grounds and entrances to the community.
