Starting a new job or even having your company move to a new location is an exciting and sometimes challenging experience. Fortunately, new employees and residents have a resource in the Hacienda Owners Association. The Hacienda Owners Association serves the park's land owners, tenants, employees and residents, and plays an important role in making Hacienda a great place to work, live and do business.
As part of that role, the Association stands ready to provide you with a complete orientation to the Hacienda community. Hacienda has many value-added benefits available to its employees and residents unique to the development. In fact, because the Association represents the park and its over 20,000 employees and residents as a whole, park tenants have access to a number of special features obtained by the Association as a community representative. The Association also serves as an information clearinghouse for details and special offers on transit, community events, and a host of park amenities.
With the growth of Hacienda and the constantly expanding menu of services offered to park tenants, even long-time Hacienda employees and residents might not be aware of everything that's available. So, if you're a new employee, or even if you've been an employee or resident of the park for a while, the Association's resources can serve you in many ways. There are four main resources waiting to assist you.
This package will provide you with a complete orientation to many of Hacienda's basic services and to Hacienda's special employee and resident benefit programs. The package also includes a map of the park with important features noted and a copy of Hacienda's NETWORK newsletter.
Whether your interested in pursuing pleasure and diversion or means to advance your business, Hacienda has amenities to serve your goals. The Employee Orientation Package will tell you how to obtain access to Hacienda's complete library of resources. Additional Hacienda features include special discounts to Hacienda businesses and to local and regional attractions, business resources, networking opportunities, professional development programs and much, much more.
No development can match Hacienda's full compliment of transportation benefits.

Getting to work is easier and inexpensive with Hacienda's free WHEELS bus passes for employees and residents. There are also free BART new rider and free SMART first-time rider programs that you can learn about as well.

Hacienda is a mixed-use development built to create a cohesive, visually unified community with a sense of identity, distinction, and quality. Development is controlled by interrelated standards outlined in the Design Guidelines; Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions (CC & Rs); and the Development plan.
