Welcome letter

The goals of YWPHI are communication and represention. YWPHI sponsors events such as the annual picnics which allow you to meet and get to know other owners. These events are also forums for distribution of news and advice from relevant agencies such as Yosemite National Park rangers, California firefighters, and Mariposa county officials. YWPHI directors also foster communication and representation of Yosemite West owners’ interests to Mariposa county officials and committees for important neighborhood issues such as public works (water, sewer, roads), law enforcement (sheriff), and zoning regulations (rental transient occupancy tax).

New property owners have recently been sent a Welcome Letter explaining YWPHI.


Membership in YWPHI is voluntary. Membership is open to any owner of record in Yosemite West (Member) and any full-time (non-transient) occupant of a single-family residence in Yosemite West (Associate Member). For further information, read the Membership and Dues section of the YWPHI Bylaws.

Members' & Readers' Comments

Yosemite West Emergency Telephone Tree

Starting in 2016, Mariposa County Emergency services (Fire and Law Enforcement) encourage all residents to sign up for emergency text alerts by texting the 95389 zip code to 888777 to join the Nixle service.

YWPHI previously updated the Yosemite West Emergency Telephone Tree annually each spring and distributed it to homeowners. (The tree does not include vacant lot owners.) The telephone tree was last updated in May 2011 and listed homeowners and their contact information. Its volunteer use was intended to systematically notify residents during an emergency or when a situation arose that affected the entire community. However, YWPHI, its members and officers, and those using this tree, cannot guarantee that anyone will receive timely and adequate notice of an emergency, and all liability is hereby disclaimed.

Homeowners can send an email to treasurer@yosemitewest.org to inform us of any changes to your contact information, to request a copy of the telephone tree, or to remove your name from the tree for any reason. By allowing your name to remain on the tree, you are expressly agreeing to waive all liability claims against YWPHI, its members and officers thereof, and those using this tree.

The Yosemite West Emergency Telephone Tree was for the exclusive use of Yosemite West homeowners and residents. Please keep the tree confidential, and do not forward it or provide copies to others for any purpose.

Telephone numbers and email addresses are not provided to third parties to protect members' privacy. YWPHI may distribute telephone numbers and email addresses for its own use and for use in emergencies.
