Clubhouse Rules and Regulations & Rental Form




The Monticello Clubhouse Facility, hereinafter referred to as the “Clubhouse,” is defined as the community building at 150 Valley Forge, Costa Mesa, California, except for the office, supply and storage rooms. The pools and patio areas are not part of the Clubhouse facility and may not be used by persons attending a function at the Clubhouse.

Subject to the approval of the Board of Directors of the Monticello Community Association, an owner may reserve the Clubhouse for use except that when the owner has leased or rented his unit, his eligibility to reserve the Clubhouse for private purposes passes to the tenant-in-possession of his unit.


  1. Community oriented functions sponsored by the Board of Directors which are primarily for the residents of the Monticello Community; and
  2. Private functions such as birthdays, weddings, parties, etc. Events may not be open to the general public. No commercial/money-making events may be held.


The Clubhouse must be reserved at least two (2) weeks in advance. A resident owner or tenant-in- possession may reserve the Clubhouse for a function by completing a Clubhouse Rental

Agreement and submitting the form together with the basic use fee and security deposit to the property management company for approval. Requests submitted by a tenant-in-possession must also include the approval of the owner of his unit who will be held jointly responsible for the conduct of the guests at the function and, subsequently, the condition of the Clubhouse.

All reservations shall be deemed tentative until the use fees and the deposit have been paid and the request approved in writing by the property management company.


Requests for use more than six months in advance will not be accepted.

    signed by both the homeowner and the tenant. The person requesting use of the Clubhouse must be in attendance as the host of the function for which use was approved.
