'No Trespassing' signs are an effort to address nighttime partying

| Filed under

The Pension Trust Fund, owners of the undeveloped land in Rancho Murieta North, has installed "NO TRESPASSING" signs at the entrance to their properties in the back area of the community.

This follows complaints about nighttime parties and bonfires in the back area near the east edge of the community's land. Security has reported past conversations with the PTF about addressing this with gates, fences, CC&Rs, rock barriers or signs. The signs are the PTF's response, according to Security Chief Greg Remson.

He said Wednesday that after-dark presence or campfires on PTF property will be treated as trespassing, and the sheriff's department may be called for assistance. Read more » about 'No Trespassing' signs are an effort to address nighttime partying
