New Holiday Decorations and Lights Policy

A new holiday decorations and lights policy was adopted by the Village Board of Directors and goes into effect on November 21, 2014.

The policy states:

Halloween Decorations may be put out on October 1st and permitted to retain throughout the month of October. Decorations must be removed by the first week of November.

Holiday Decorations may be erected the day after Thanksgiving and are permitted to remain through the second week of January.

The policy is available on the Resources page of the blog.

  1. Thanks for your comments. They have been sent to Courtney Fischer, the Village’s property manager, who is forwarding them to the board.

  2. It is my understanding that rest of Coto allows Christmas lights to be installed starting November 1st, but they may NOT be turned on until after Thanksgiving. It would make sense for us to follow similar guidelines. I know many friends who have already booked their lighting installation for earlier in November as a discount is available then. For safety and scheduling reasons — allowing a longer time period for Christmas light installation seems appropriate.

  3. The time schedule for the Holiday Decorations is not workable for our family. My 3 daughters and grandchildren and families begin arriving a few days before Thanksgiving as they live in the East. That is the one time of year we can all get together so that is when the children have come to expect Christmas in California. I need to be able to turn on the lights on Thanksgiving Day which also means I will be hanging them before Thanksgiving and before they arrive. In past years, I have hung the lights but nothing is turned on until Thanksgiving Day. I hope you can appreciate that this is a problem of logistics as once December is upon us, it is to late to be decorating. I am sure there are other families in the Village that would have a similar issue. My decorating is discreet but it does take time to hang the white lights in the red woods in front of our house. I don’t turn them on until Thanksgiving Day. My only other option would be to forego any outdoor decorations. I hope you can consider this for your Holiday Decorations Policy. Thank you for any help you can give me in this regard. …jana 31772 Via Pato
