The Fifth Annual Neighborhood of Lights will once again light up the community in December. This mapped tour of homes decked out in holiday displays is becoming a favorite tradition here in Somersett. Children and adults alike appreciate seeing their community sparkle with the spirit of their neighbors’ decorating efforts as they vote for their favorite displays.
This year we are thrilled to welcome a special guest – a fire truck from Reno Fire Department will lead our Holiday Caravan on Sunday, Dec. 12. Golf carts and other vehicles decked out in holiday lights and decorations will follow the fire truck through the streets of Somersett, waving and spreading holiday cheer to all who come out to greet them.
We hope you will consider entering your home to be entered into our contest and featured on our map of decorated homes. Categories are:

The 2022 Budget was automatically ratified at the Annual Members Meeting yesterday. From Article II, Section 6 of the CC&Rs: "Unless at that meeting seventy-five percent (75%) of all voting power of Owners rejects the budget, the budget is ratified, whether or not a quorum is present."
The budget calls for no increases in Club at Town Center and Gates monthly assessments and an increase of $3 in the monthly Common Area assessment, to $108/month.
2022 assessments are:
General Common: $108 (paid by all Somersett homeowners)
The Club at Town Center: $89 (paid by all Somersett homeowners, except members of the Sierra Canyon sub-association)
Gates: $50 (paid by residents of gated communities)
