Auburn Valley is a residential golf course community 45 miles northeast of Sacramento, California consisting of approximately 140 custom built residences on half acre to acre plus parcels surrounded by thousands of acres of oak studded, undeveloped rolling hills in the beautiful Sierra foothills. Auburn Valley is located in the unincorporated North Auburn Area seven miles north of Interstate 80 and two miles west of Highway 49.
The community was originally developed in the mid 1970s by the Auburn Valley Group (AVG) whose principal investors were Lawrence Curtola and Joe Alioto, one time mayor of San Francisco. The AVG developed an 18 hole golf course with an adjoining residential community. The AVG eventually sold the golf course and the adjoining residential parcels to Leonard Odenthal who developed a number of the residential parcels. Odenthal subsequently sold his interests to Gina, Inc., a development company. Gina continued to develop more of the residential parcels. Gina ultimately sold the remaining 54 parcels to Suncrest, Inc., another development company who recently developed those last residential parcels beginning in 2001.
Currently the Auburn Valley Community is managed by two volunteer boards as follows:
The Community’s infrastructure is located on land owned by, or by easement to, the AVPOA or the AVCSD. The governing documents consist of title papers, easements and agreements. The wastewater treatment plant is permitted by the California Regional Water Quality Control Board (CRWQCB) and the potable water system is permitted by Placer County and the State of California. These governmental bodies require ongoing quality control reporting and compliance with state and county requirements.
The beautiful Auburn Valley Community is ideally located “above the fog” and “below the snow line” with abundant local recreation and easy access to the Lake Tahoe recreation area. Auburn has many local restaurants and varied shopping in addition to convenient access to the Roseville restaurant and shopping areas.
