Join the RPOA

Ross Property Owners’ Association (RPOA) is dedicated to providing funds and services for the benefit of the general and school community of the Town of Ross.

The Association holds monthly meetings at 7:15 p.m. at the Town Hall on the Monday immediately preceding the Town Council meeting. RPOA members are encouraged to participate in our monthly meetings. Issues pertaining to Town matters are discussed, particularly those currently before the Council.

Disaster Planning

The RPOA would like to remind residents of the importance of planning ahead for a potential disaster.  Groups within the Ross Community have worked together to create an effective disaster plan.  

Included in this is a helpful brochure, outlined by the state, about what to do in the event of a disaster. These brochures are available at the space on the wall inside the post office.

The Town’s safety department stresses that all residents need to prepare to be self-sufficient for 72 hours after a major disaster.  For more detailed information, residents are encouraged to visit the Public Safety and Emergency Services link of the town website

Here you’ll find tips on: 

  • Preparing an Emergency Kit
  • Get Ready Marin classes and CERT training
  • Dealing with different types of disasters
  • Registering with the Town’s Telephone Emergency Notification System
