Deck Inspections Coming in 2023
Posted on Aug 17th, 2022
In order to ensure compliance with California Senate Bill 721, deck inspections will be taking place at La Buena Vida in 2023.  All #4 decks will be inspected.  We will post advance notice when your deck is set to be inspected, as all items will need to be removed from the #4 deck during the inspections, and vehicles will need to be off the driveways.  Thanks for your cooperation!
