Genesis of FCA

The Foothills Community Association was organized as the Foothill Home Owners Association in 1964 to protect the interests of the residents. The HOA converted to non-profit corporation in 1973.

Jackie Gimeno initiated the discussion about forming an association to prevent the development of a shopping center behind the model homes on the east side of Newport Avenue at Hyde Park Road. One person from each region of the unincorporated area was recruited and the FCA was incorporated. The shopping center development was prevented. This was the first in the succession of many successful initiatives to preserve the character of the community.
